    The National Theater for Children's "AQUA LEAGUE" Water Conservation VISITATION:

    Our Nelson Knights were thrilled to have The National Theater for Children visit our school on October 18th.  They performed "The Aqua League" with our TK-6 grade students to teach them about the uses of water, the journey that water takes and the water cycle, the tools we use to get water, and how to save and protect our water. Several of our students had the opportunity to perform in front of their peers with the actors regarding the water cycle and it's importance. What an fun and creative way to inspire our students to conserve and respect water and learn some great science "stuff" as well!

    Science Olympiad Takes Home the Bronze

    We are so proud of our future scientists and engineers here at Nelson.  Under the leadership of Mrs. Oyakawa and Mrs. Diaz, these fine Olympiads really showed off their stuff at the annual Science Olympiad event at Occidental College in Los Angeles on March 2, 2019!  Seventeen students, grades 4-6, were selected by application, to be a part of this amazing team.  They meet with their coaches twice a week to research, collaborate, design, learn, and prepare for this big event...They scored with high marks and earned a BRONZE medal...(our students will always be GOLD to us)!

    For more information about the actual event that took place, click on the link below.  Congratulations to our Nelson Olympians...some of Nelson's finest!
