    My name is Peggy Russell.  I have been teaching  physical education in St. Paul Schools since January of 1992.   I have been teaching at Wellstone Elementary since the 2004-2005 school year.  Wellstone is a wonderful group  of students,  families, and staff working together.  It is a pleasure to teach here and be part of this community! 

    In Physical Education at Wellstone Elementary, students are working toward the standards through a large variety of games, sports, and challenges along with individual and group activities. Through participation students will: 

    1. Improve motor skills and movement.
    2. Increase their knowledge and understanding of movement concepts, principles, and strategies.
    3. Be challenged to achieve and maintain higher levels of physical fitness.
    4. Practice respectful, responsible, and safe behaviors
    5. Learn that good nutrition and daily physical activity contribute to a healthy, enjoyable life-style.
