The PTO Auction in early April was a fun-filled event that raised $8,100. Everyone enjoyed the light-hearted, friendly bidding between members of the community which drove the purchase prices up and up. However, we all know that it was for a good cause—the children of Nelson School! Thank you to those who worked behind the scenes to organize the evening, to those worked the front lines, to those who secured and/or made donations, to those who made purchases, and to the children for being the runners!
Our after school program continues to thrive! To meet the needs of students, we have hired an additional staff member, Brittany Geronimo, who began the second week of April.
Rebecca LaQuerre, our art teacher, has returned to us from her maternity leave on May 7th. A warm thank you to Amanda Heisler, for being our “guest” teacher while Rebecca was at home with her baby. We wish Amanda every success in securing a full time teaching position.

We Are A Blue Ribbon School
Nelson Elementary School is one of three schools in New Hampshire that have been named Blue Ribbon Schools. The Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private K-12 schools that are either academically superior in their states or that demonstrate dramatic gains in student achievement. Each year the New Hampshire Department of Education has sought out schools where students attain and maintain high academic goals, including those that beat the odds.
First, it recognizes schools that have at least 40 percent of their students from disadvantaged backgrounds that dramatically improve student performance to a high level on state assessments or assessments referenced against national norms at a particular grade, as determined by the Chief State School Officer (CSSO).
The Mission of Nelson Elementary School is to instill strength of spirit and ignite a love of learning.
