Nelson School Song
written by Ila May Chapman

Nelson School is the greatest place to be
We learn a lot of things on that we all agree
And Nelson School is also lots of fun
Tons of work is done

Here we learn respect for peers and playing fair
At Nelson School we know the staff about us cares
We work hard and we try our best each day
That’s the Nelson way

At Nelson we stand tall
No matter big or small
We give our friends in need a helping hand
We are proud to be
The Nelson Family
Nelson is the best school in the land

And …… we are proud that Nelson is our very own
No here need ever fear or feel alone
We try to get along with everyone,
Nelson is such fun,
Nelson’s the best one,
Better there is none!

We’re Great!
