    ASB / CORE COUNCIL / and REPRESENTATIVES

    The ASB (Associated Student Body) is an organization through which all students have an opportunity to express their opinions and to participate in the management of certain school enterprises. Each spring a president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer and representatives from each grade level are elected for the following year.

    The ASB Officers form the core for the student council, whose task is to promote leadership, initiative, and self-control among the members of the entire student body. Representative members are elected each fall. In this way, student ideas and suggestions are brought before the student council and information is carried back to the student body.

    ASB President: Elaine Nguyen
    ASB Vice-President: Ivy Pham

    At Nelsen Middle School, we pride ourselves on developing student athletes. We expect our student athletes to excel in the following three areas; Academics, Attitude, and Athletic Ability (The Three A’s). Team members will be selected based on all three of these principles.
