Fundraising Events

Walkathon (October)
The Walkathon is one of our biggest annual events and a great time for the whole family!

Fun Fair (February)
This bi-annual fundraiser takes place in the spring on alternating years with the Holiday Workshop. Numerous games are set up in the school, such as a cake walk, along with activities in the gym.

Non-Fundraising Events

Movie Nights (Throughout the year)
Bring your blankets and lawn chairs and share a family-friendly movie with fellow JBN families.

Kindergarten Parents’ Night Out (September)
Each year as the new school year begins, the J.B. Nelson PTO welcomes kindergarten parents at a local restaurant, where they connect with each other and learn about ways they can be involved with the school.

Winter Fest (December)
Join your JBN friends and neighbors for a relaxing morning of donuts, a visit with Santa and shopping for parents and children!

Easter Egg Hunt (March/April)
JBN students (and their younger siblings) hunt for Easter eggs in and around the school.

Family Science Night (April)
Family Science Night is a time for J.B. Nelson students to explore STEM-related topics outside of the classroom and to display it in a non-competitive atmosphere so others can learn from what they have done. The purpose is to encourage a sense of wonder and curiosity in each student and to increase self-directed questioning of the world around them.

Walk/Bike to School Days
Several times throughout the year, JBN encourages students to walk or ride their bike to school so they can stay active and help keep our environment healthy.
