We would like to thank all of those who were able to donate to the Nelson Food Drive. Because of your efforts, Nelson School brought in 1,885 cans for needy families around the area. Congratulations to Mr. Craig's fifth grade class for bringing the most items. They will be treated to a Pizza lunch away from the building. Way to go!

Nelson P.E. students participated in their version of the Olympics to better understand the real Winter Olympics taking place in Canada. Students simulated the speed skating event, bob sled, luge, biathlon, curling, hockey, and then they will borrow two events from the summer games, bowling and basketball to round out their Olympics. The students were responsible for keeping track of the actual medals earned by their country at the 2010 Olympics and reported that information at each class period.
