Nelson Rural is getting into the Christmas spirit and delivered gifts to 95.9 sunFM for the "Giving Tree" to be given to seniors for Christmas. These gifts were all donated by staff and students. Great job Raiders for spreading some Christmas cheer!
Congratulations to Mrs. Sullivan-Goguen's Kindergarten Class, the winners of our first Spirit Week Challenge of the year! They claimed the RAIDERS Hat. There was great school spirit from K-8 for this first challenge! Stay tuned for the next Spirit Week challenge. Will the kindergarten students hold on to the RAIDERS hat, or will another class win it?
Mrs. Dickson would like to thank her Green Team members for all their hard work and dedication with the start up of the recycling and composting program installed in our cafeteria. We are excited to see how we can reduce our Nelson Rural Environmental Foot Print by doing our part.

This article is very informative on why schools use to have gardens and why they moved away from them as well. Now they realize the importance of them and why we should get our younger generations involved. Please read it you will not be disappointed.
Ms. Baldwin's Grade 8 International Students from Brazil; Emille, Breno and Julio, had a very successful first time bass fishing across the road from Nelson Rural School. In total, the students caught seven striped bass with Emille catching the largest. All three students had a great time thanks to one of our custodians, Buddy O'Toole, who was gracious enough to take them before his shift at school.
