Nelson has been very fortunate to receive a very large grant this year to help support student achievement. The grant can last up to five years. So far the grant has allowed us to, provide additional coaching for teachers, create a family center for community use, provide students with additional intervention, add additional family nights throughout the year, and purchase STEM projects to create higher level thinking.
