Principal's Message

From Principal RENCHER

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! I am excited to welcome our newest Nelsen Hawks, and welcome back our returning students and families. Last spring our Nelsen staff, students, and entire community were challenged to create a new normal for learning.  Throughout the spring, I was constantly impressed by the creativity of our staff, the perseverance of our students, and the commitment from our families and community. As we prepare to launch the 2020-21 school year, I have no doubt that our time spent last spring will serve as a catalyst to create the best online learning opportunities for all our Nelsen students.

 To say that the 2020-21 school year has some unknown aspects ahead would be an understatement. As we start our journey together as a Nelsen community, I ask that we all show one another grace and patience. I ask that our staff show grace and patience as they support our students and families as they navigate our new normal in education. I ask that our families show grace and patience as our Nelsen staff redefine education and drastically change their professional practices in our new normal in education.  As the principal, I must lead with grace and patience as our entire Nelsen community adjusts to our new normal in education.

 I am proud to serve as your principal. I welcome any challenge that the 2020-21 school year may bring because I know that with our staff, students, families, and entire community united, we can overcome anything.
