Independent Learners and Skillful Problem Solvers

Our students learn to read, write, speak and listen in both Spanish and English. In this model, each child gains confidence as both a first-language model and a second-language learner. English-only instruction is also available in our historic sunlit building, named for the late Senator Paul Wellstone and his wife Sheila. Our goal is to educate students to be proficient in language that expresses knowledge, opinions, and creative ideas that can change and benefit the community. We have ample computer resources, a well-equipped science lab and a welcoming, colorful library. With physical fitness opportunities both outdoors and in, Wellstone also emphasizes the arts, partnering with museums and performing organizations.

Wellstone Elementary is on the corner of Rice and Lawson Streets, serving students in pre-k through fifth grade. Wellstone students are taught to exercise critical thinking skills and to facilitate student-led discussions around content themes and social issues. Student leadership is woven into the curriculum at all levels.

Your donation will help provide Wellstone students with supplies, tools and learning opportunities beyond the exceptional curriculum they already receive. Thank you for considering a gift to our school.
