Today we recognize the scientific and environmental contributions of Mario Molina. He is a Nobel Prize winning scientist who played a huge role in the discovery of the Antarctic ozone hole. He discovered that Freon causes holes in our ozone layers. Due to his scientific work, we now have environmental laws to protect our ozone layer and in turn protect our planet. In 2013 he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Hawk Report from Prinicpal Rencher
Good evening, Nelsen families,
Next week is a busy week with lots of Nelsen activities. On Monday and Thursday our Nelsen soccer teams begin their seasons with games against Risdon and Dimmitt. On Monday our teams play at Risdon Middle School with the boys beginning at 3:00pm and the girls at 4:00pm. Then on Thursday our teams play at Dimmitt Middle School with the boys starting at 3:00pm and girls at 4:00pm. Unfortunately, our Nelsen soccer teams will not host games here at Nelsen this season due to our field getting some much needed updates. We wish we could host games this season, but we also understand the need for our field to be addressed.
On Wednesday the 4th, our performing arts department is hosting our Nelsen Beginning Ensembles Cookie Concert. Come watch as our beginning band, orchestra, and choir all perform, and watch as our drama students perform a lip sync battle. The event begins here at Nelsen in our cafeteria at 6:00pm.
As a reminder, there is no school next Friday October 6th. October 6th is a statewide in-service day for educators. For your planning purposes, the next non-student day is Friday November 3rd.
