The Clovis Unified motto “Be the best you can be in mind, body and spirit,” comes to life in our block award. Students in grades four through six who demonstrate success in mind (academics), body (athletics or performing arts) and spirit (character) are eligible to earn our school’s Block Award. Students who qualify as Block Award winners all six semesters earn a special recognition at the conclusion of their sixth grade year.
The Block “N” award is the highest award a student may earn at Nelson. The Block “N” is available to fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students, and is awarded at the end of each semester. The criteria for this award is designed to recognize students who exemplify the qualities that Nelson hopes to foster in all of its students, namely: (1) the desire for self-improvement: (2) dedication and commitment in reaching for goals: (3) concern for and service to others: and (4) the willingness to be a positive role model to others. Individuals earning this prestigious award will receive a Block “N” plaque. Block N criteria forms will be passed out to all upper grade students during the first week of each semester.
