Nelson-Wilks-Herron Elementary is anticipating with excitement the returning students and the new students coming to each grade as well.

We look forward to meeting and working with the parents and guardians to create the best experience possible with engaged learning for each child that attends our school.

The whole staff here believes in building positive and productive relationships to become the team that works together for each individual child’s needs.

The new R.I.S.E. (Reading Initiative for Student Excellence) will be an encompassing focus for the 2017-18 school year. The purpose of this is to build a culture of reading in Mountain Home by partnering the students, parents and community members.

The priority is to build a strong foundation in reading, which will promote success for the students in their future, as well as improve their performance in work and in assessments.

NWH is also privileged to have expanded the number of teachers who have been trained in the Apple Connections programs of instruction for dyslexia, which will also be beneficial for any student to strengthen them in the foundations of reading.

This will also expand the number of students to be serviced in this area of need.

We appreciate each of you as parents and guardians of our students and will be here to help you in any way we can. We also value Dr. Jake Long’s direction as superintendent and Dr. Leigh Ann Gigliotti’s guidance in the academic focus as assistant superintendent.

Dana Brown will be assisting in meeting…
