Nelson was recently recognized as the first Heart Healthy School in the district. We accepted challenges and our student body came out on top for their efforts in the following areas: eating more fruit and vegetables, decreasing screen time, engaging in phsical activity, and drinking more water. Congratulations everyone. Visitors can check out our HUGE banner in the lobby.
Code Club was a great success this fall with students from grades 3-8. Each week, we had approximately 30 students meet for Code Club and work on programs such as Microbits, Scratch, Arduino, and makey makey projects! It was a great time for learning, collaborating, coding and expanding their knowledge of computer science.
We hope to continue Code Club in the Spring! Stay tuned and keep coding!
Nelson Rural staff and students are sponsoring 63 residents at Mount Saint Joseph Nursing Home this Christmas. Please check with the home room teachers for items they are looking to have donated. Donations of monetary value and gift bags would also be appreciated. In the spirit of giving, empathy, and kindness please give generously this holiday season. All items need to be brought in by Wednesday, December 5th. Thank you in advance!
Code Club has started at Nelson Rural and we had a great turnout at our first after school Code Club last week! We are registered with Code Club Canada and this club will run for 6 weeks. We have started coding using Scratch and Microbits and students are collaborating together to help with eachother's creations!
