Principal's Message

  • Greetings Nelson Navigators!

    At Nelson Elementary, we are working together to support our students as they Navigate their Nelson Way by following the STARs.  Nelson students Show Kindness, Take Responsibility, Act Safely, and Respect Everyone & Everything.  Thank you for partnering with us!

    As we close out the 2021-2022 school year, I want to thank you for sending us such incredible students!  It has been a joy and privilege to have them back in the building this year! 

    We are now anticipating the 2022-2023 school year!  Yes, please enjoy summer vacation, but also mark your calendars for Our 1ST DAY OF SCHOOL for Grades 1-5 is September 6, 2022 .  Kindergarten students begin on September 9, 2022.  Students will receive class placement information in the mail near the end of August.  Be watching your mailbox!   OPEN HOUSE for all grade levels is Thursday,  September 1, 2022 from 4:00-5:00 PM.  We are excited to meet you!

    It is an exciting time of year at Nelson Elementary. Our navigators will finish the year strong, enjoy their summer vacation and then we will welcome them back in September!


    Incoming Kindergarten Students & Families 

    The first day of school for Kindergarten is September 9th. This means that you do NOT send your student to school on September 6th-8th. You will be hearing from your child's teacher towards the end of August to schedule a meeting.  If you enrolled this summer, you will hear from your child’s teacher once we have received all of the enrollment information from the district office.
