Changes to the Agenda
Opening Day Student Interviews 2013
Nelson County Schools
The opening of the 2013-2014 school year began with our Open House and Meet and Greet activities. With the idea coming through our Expect the Best committee, parents and students were welcomed back to school with celebrations at all of our schools. The positive feedback from parents and staff members let us know we’re off to a good start.
Congratulations to TNHS Junior Chefs - Zach Johnson, Amber Pate, Hannah Wolf, Eli Clark and Austin Martinez competed at the State Fair competition on 8-15-13. One of only eight teams in the state and the only one in the surrounding area that qualified.
Last year's LEADERship Dynamics class was awarded $4000 to donate to a hunger charity with which they partnered in the Lead2Feed World Leadership Challenge. United Way and New Hope Food Bank received $1000 each and Feeding America Kentucky's Heartland received $2000. Along with the money awarded through the program, the class also led the school in collecting 1800 canned food items, $110 for United Way, and $700 for Feeding America. We plan to be involved in the challenge again this year.
In New Haven, 6th grader Autumn Howard, has already accumulated 234.4 AR points and has set a goal of 500 for the year. Her favorite series is the Lord of the Rings which she shared with us that she has read it multiple times.
4th grader, Emily Hines, entered her quilt project into the county fair and was the Grand Champion and will enter her quilt at the state fair.
Kindergartner, Angel Williams, is able to count to 100.
