Welcome to Paul and Sheila Wellstone Elementary!

  • At Wellstone students learn to read, write, speak and listen in both Spanish and English. Our historic sunlit building, named for the late Senator Paul Wellstone and his wife Sheila, offers students and families three computer labs and a beautiful, welcoming library with reading materials in both English and Spanish. Our goal is to educate students to be proficient in the Spanish and English languages, develop a global perspective, and gain understanding of other cultures. Learn more...

Independent learners and skillful problem solvers

  • English/Spanish Dual Immersion

    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.

    Help us raise $8000.

     We want to bring Dancing Classrooms, a local nonprofit  to Wellstone 5th graders.

    The students will learn the Latin dances Merengue and Rumba, and the ballroom dances Foxtrot, Waltz and Swing. They will also learn some fun line dances. Equally important will be their social learning, as this program emphasizes that dance is a way of making and sharing connections.

    The cost per classroom is $2,000.  The money raised will go straight to funding this program for all four of our fifth grade classrooms at Wellstone.  Each class will get a 10 week, 20-lesson residency.
