BLIZZARD BAG DAY?
8th Annual PTO Auction - Update
What do YOU call Success?
Success can be described in many different ways, but here at the Nelson School we would call the 8th Annual Nelson School PTO auction a huge success! Why?
Because the looks of happiness on the children’s faces as they proudly held up their artwork, a donation that they or their friend had obtained, or something they donated from their family. Their huge eyes of wonderment as Ckris Wallenstein challenged the substantial crowd to dig deeper into their pockets for a few more dollars to make the goal of books for the school a reality. The excitement they showed as they bid on fun items with play money, hoping for that special treasure.
Success is alumni of the Nelson School volunteering valuable time to watch the wee ones of our current families and friends.
Success is the teamwork of educators, parents and friends coming together to achieve a common goal through laughter, life happens moments and family challenges.
Success is many, many community members and businesses donating items and services to ensure the fundraising event meets the school’s goal- BOOKS!
Did we meet that goal? Yes, we did! Together we reached a total raised by the auction, cash donations, food sales and a 50/50 raffle of $10,000.
A huge thank you for everyone in our Nelson School communities and the Monadnock Region and beyond! You did make a difference and from the bottom of our hearts, we all appreciate it!

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.
