Busy Week At Nellie

Hello Citizens of Nellie,

The Nellie Staff would like to thank you for our dinner last evening.  It was wonderful and really made us feel appreciated.

This was a very busy and exciting week at Nellie.  The Used Book Sale, Conferences and a visit from our Education Director were some of the highlights.  There is a lot of information in this week’s Nellie In The Know so please read it carefully with your children so you don’t miss any of the big events coming up.

Thank you all so much for making Nellie a great place to learn.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Remembrance Days

 Hello Citizens of Nellie,

 We had a very moving week at Nellie that crested with a very thoughtful and emotional Remembrance Day Service this morning.  A big thank you to our MCs, Sophia and Olivia, Ms. Dennison, Daniel Dennison, all students who presented and all staff who helped created this powerful service. You did a remarkable job of creating such an authentic service. It was also wonderful to see how many family members were able to join us as we stopped to remember this important day.

It is now time to enjoy our first ever School Fall Break. See you all back Wed. November 15th.

Halloween Is Just Around the Corner

Hello Citizens of Nellie.  As you probably know by now, Halloween is a big deal at Nellie.  Students dress up, PAC hosts a dance, activities are planned in the school and a huge celebration of learning occurs. It is a fun and light-hearted way for everyone to “play make-believe".  Parents are asked to monitor costumes and avoid having costumes that are too gory or too dangerous.  Props are also a concern.  Props such as swords, guns, pitch forks or any other type of weapon should stay at home.  Families who do not celebrate Halloween need to contact their child's teacher and myself so we may ensure that the learning for your child is not associated with the Halloween celebrations and activities.​  Happy Halloween Everyone!!!!​
