On Tuesday, June 12th Nelson Rural School hosted its First Annual Planting Party. This event kicked off a school wide garden project that has seen students growing seedlings in their classrooms and learning about the science behind gardening. With the help of local gardener Melanie Dickson, the planting party gave students the opportunity to transplant their carefully cultivated crops from their classrooms into the school’s recently built garden beds.
After many dedicated years at Nelson Rural School, the staff and students would like to wish a very Happy Retirement to one of our amazing Custodians Jackie McLaughlin! You will be truly missed by everyone! We wish you all the best and an enjoyable retirement.
Our grade 1 French Immersion class was nominated for using microbit coding in the classroom. Ellie and Cohen presented at the "Innovation in Education" provincial Maker Fair that was held in Memramcook, New Brunswick last week. They were also presented with an award for using technology and innovation in the classroom at the galla that was held that evening. They did a fantastic job representing Nelson Rural along with other schools attending across the province. Great job everyone!
