  • Welcome to Paul and Sheila Wellstone Elementary
    Our historic sunlit building, named for the late Senator Paul Wellstone and his wife Sheila, offers students and families two programs: Biosmart and Spanish Dual Language immersion.  We have a beautiful library with reading materials in both English and Spanish. Our aim is to have a creative and cohesive community where students are supported as learners. Science and engineering courses take place in spaces where children create with hands on materials, including reptiles and aquaponics.      Learn more...
