The middle school hockey players of Nelson Rural played in the annual Winter Classic hockey game on Friday, Feb. 16 at the LBA. Fast skating, good laughs, and an overall good time was had by all the boys and girls who played. Many goals were scored, quite a few on Mr. Bosma, as students enjoyed snapping pucks at their Language Arts teacher. A huge thank you to Mr. Keating for organizing the event again this year, and for Mr. Murphy for helping on the ice and even showing some of his old hockey skills.
Students will be attending this assembly on First Nations Culture for the morning. This is a cultural and social gathering including drumming, dancing, and song.
Because of the end time of the assembly, we are asking K-2 students to bring a bag lunch on Friday as they will not be using the cafeteria on this day. It would also be helpful if their snack was labelled with their name so the teacher can hang on to it for them.
Edgewater Embroidery is currently taking orders for school clothing. A flyer will be sent home with items and prices. Orders can be submitted at the office, or at Edgewater Embroidery (53 Gorman Blvd) before March 2nd.
Orders will also be taken in person at the school on Thursday, February 15th from 11-2.

Nelson Rural School is extremely proud of Madeline Woods and Cali-Rae Crossman who participated with their Miramichi Panthers Pee-Wee hockey team at the Bell Capital Cup in the Ottawa region over the Holidays. The team made it to the final before losing to a team from Alberta in overtime in a hard fought game. Congratulations to both girls and their team on a great accomplishment and a lifetime of memories.
Nelson Rural had a great visit from the JMH Tommies! They came to read to our students and gave out a published Tommie book to each homeroom classroom. They also had gifts for the students and gave them each a colouring book! We would like to thank JMH Tommies for coming and sharing kindness with our students. They came to greet our young Tommies and the students were very excited to see the Mascot as well!
Thank you again for spreading Kindness to our students especially before the holidays! See the full image gallery for more photos!
