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 three computer labs, two large science classrooms and a beautiful library with reading materials in both English and Spanish. Our goal is to educate students to have a deep knowledge of Science (Biosmart), to be proficient in the Spanish and English languages (Dual Language Immersion), to develop a global perspective and gain understanding and appreciation of other cultures.

COVID-19 Student and Family Guidelines
SPPS will require masks for all people in a school setting (ages 2+), including all teachers, staff, students and visitors, regardless of vaccination status. Families should familiarize themselves with the SPPS COVID-19 Student and Family Guidelines, which are updated regularly and cover prevention strategies, health screening and monitoring, and the SPPS COVID-19 Reporting System.
Our vision for Wellstone Elementary is an inclusive environment where diversity is valued and all students are free to be themselves. It is a cohesive community where families, staff, and students feel welcomed, encouraged, supported and engaged. We share the responsibility of upholding high expectations that are consistent. Creative thinking paired with inventive teaching will lead to exceptional academic and social achievement.
