Nicholson Elementary School has been a very busy place!

Halloween week was full of fun activities that started with pumpkin carving. Southside Grocery donated a pumpkin for each child in the school to carve. They were then displayed in front of the store for the week of Halloween. They looked awesome and of course scary!!! A huge thank you to Sandra and Mike Mills for their generosity.

Students in kindergarten to grade 3 took part in Halloween Safety presentations to help them prepare for trick or treating. On Halloween the students wore their costumes and took part in a costume parade. At noon the grade 4 – 7 students enjoyed a Halloween dance.

The whole school is now enjoying skating once a week at the rink in town. They will go for five consecutive weeks “sharpening their skills” on the ice at the same time as building community with other classes and getting some exercise.

On Friday, November 8 we held a Remembrance Day assembly followed by our first community soup lunch day. The service was attended by four members of the Legion as well as cadets. Each class participated in the service by reading, singing or doing art work to decorate the gym. Thank you to everyone who made the service so special.

In between all the fun and excitement of extra activities, the students at Nicholson are working hard to become better students and better citizens in order to make the community of Nicholson and Golden better places to live and grow. The staff at Nicholson is very proud of each and every one of them.
