Hello Wellstone families,

 

There is in-person school for the remainder of this week.  There has been some confusion around this since the District was on standby  to switch to VLS if there were any signs of civil unrest due to the Derek Chauvin verdict.  

 

Please join us this evening for  the PTO meeting at 5:30. The meeting will be  on Google Meet.  The code is  WellstonePTO,  use your child’s iPad to sign on.

 To promote the love of reading on April 30 and May 28 we will be having DROP EVERYTHING and READ/ TEMAL (todo el mundo a leer) days.   Teachers will schedule 10-20 minutes of free time where each student and teacher  can read whatever book they choose. Parents are invited to be part of this day by being a virtual guest readers for your child’s class. 

Saint Paul Public Schools (SPPS) offers Summer Learning Programs for students in grades K-12.  Students will have opportunities to learn new things and strengthen current academic skills; prepare for the upcoming school year through active, fun and hands-on activities; and make progress toward graduation.
