Our students learn to read, write, speak and listen in both Spanish and English. English only instruction is also available in our Biosmart program. Our learning community is in a historic sunlit building, named for the late Senator Paul Wellstone and his wife Sheila. Our goal is to provide students excellent instruction which allows them to express knowledge, opinions, and creative ideas that will change and benefit the community.
An option for Paul & Sheila Wellstone students is a dual immersion program that represents bilingual education at its best. In this model, each child gains confidence as both a first-language model and a second-language learner.
Paul & Sheila Wellstone Elementary School is committed to providing a rigorous learning experience for all students, so that every student will meet or exceed academic, social, and language benchmarks prior to entering middle school.
Help your student succeed. Parent tips about how to help students prepare for school, attend school regularly, study for exams and promote reading at home are available here. In addition tips are available in Spanish, Hmong and Somali.
Ours is a school where we strive to inspire and demand more of every child, as we would our own children.
