A successful 7th annual Nelson Rural Winter Classic hockey game with our Nelson Rural middle school students on Friday Feb. 11. Yet another display of great sportsmanship. Thanks again to parent Darryl Sullivan for going between the pipes.
Congratulations to our three button design winners at all three levels! They did a wonderful job and received 2 free buttons of their own design. We will be having a school wide vote this week to see which button will be our School button and will be available for purchase! Proceeds will go back to the Maker Space to purchase new equipment and resources.
Thank you to all students who participated! We had 85 entries!
