Nelson Elementary School is a small rural school with an enrollment of about 70 students in grades Kindergarten through grade five. Our school excels in creating a family atmosphere through multi-grade classrooms, the collaboration of local groups and organizations, and close interaction between each class.

In addition to academic subjects, Nelson offers music, art, physical education,Spanish,nature studies (Harris Center), and instrumental lessons. Its students are supported by Title I services in reading and math, a special education teacher, a school counselor, an occupational therapist, a speech therapist, and a school nurse.

The efforts of the faculty and staff to establish a productive and nurturing learning environment for children are greatly aided by strong community involvement and support. Nelson School is a place where there is a strong emphasis on basic skills, where there is excitement about learning, where there are high and clear expectations for performance, and where children are challenged to reach their full potential.

The Nelson Elementary School staff participates in professional development opportunities, which impact school improvement issues on a school-wide level. This allows us to use our financial resources wisely and provides us with a shared professional vision that fosters school-wide collaboration and support.

End of Year

August 8th is the joint venture for the town of Nelson's 250th birthday with the Apple Hill Chamber Music Center.  We are fortunate to have this unique musical organization in our town.

Please join us for the festivities which include an afternoon hike with members of our own Nelson  Trails committee at 3:30.  Be prepared with good footwear, and walking poles, if needed.  The Apple Hill grounds will also be open to tour;  and we may hear music from some of the cabins and practice rooms.   There are nice gardens and sitting areas for all to enjoy. 

At 6:00 there will be a free supper for the first 50 people who reserve.  This is being supported by Linda Singer in memory of her father, Herb, who died earlier this year.  He loved music, supported musical education and the arts, and loved pizza  and hot dogs.   Food for all dietary requirements will also be available.

The concert starts at 7:30 PM. There will be 40 free tickets by reservation for Nelson residents and students attending our school. Youngsters will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult. The concert has been underwritten by three Nelson families, and ticket costs are being covered by the town of Nelson.

Please make your reservations no later than noontime on August 7th. The earlier, the better, as this will help with event planning. Call Apple Hill at 847-3371 For your dinner and /or concert tickets.
