Mr Pat Finnigan, MP for Miramichi/Grand Lake and owner of Mr Tomato in Rogersville visited our school on Nov. 3 to help Grade 2S and 5W prepare for our School Garden. Mr. Finnigan gave us some great advice on what to plant, when to plant and how to tend to our garden.
We are looking for volunteers to help with our Elementary Soccer teams. This is a short term committment...the season is over in October and games are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We would love to be able to include students from Grades 3 to 5 so we will need coaches for 2 or 3 teams. If you can help with this great activity, please contact the school asap! Thank you!
Nelson Rural School held their annual awards ceremony on Thursday, June 22, 2017. The following students were presented with the major awards of the year:
Michaela MacDonald Award presented to an elementary student recognized for their love of reading - Chloe Sullivan (front left) Thomas Woods Award presented to a primary student recognized for their creativity - Rowyn Jardine (front right) Back (left to right): Exemplary Student (Davey O'Toole Bursary) presented to student(s) with highest academic standing in Grade 8 - William Woods & Jorja Hanley
Cali Crossman was the winner of our Grade 8 Fundraiser. She had the closest guess for the amount in the jar without going over and won the contents of the jar. The kids would like to to thank Buddy O'Toole who donated the amount to support our cause.
The Grade 8 students raised $300 for their end of the year trip to Hopewell Rocks which they will be taking next Wednesday.
