• Mr. Justin Tews
    Nelson Elementary

    Welcome to one of the most incredible years your child will have in his/her school career! First Grade is a time of:

    • New beginnings.
    • Making friends.
    • Learning lots of new things each and every day.
    First graders develop fundamental work habits, appropriate social behavior, problem solving and decision making skills and of course academic skills.  I am looking forward to making your child's learning experience a fun and exciting one, and to instill a love of learning that will last throughout their years of schooling.
    At Home Support

    • Practicing spelling words and sight words daily.
    • Encouraging your child to write and draw.
    • Practicing math facts daily.
    • Reviewing work that your child brings home.
