Over three days, Wellstone students took part in a MPS High School Food Drive. They spread fliers two days after school(3.12 and 3.13), and collected food donations on a Saturday morning (March14). They collected 700+ pounds of food for hungry families and brought it to Sabathani Food Shelf! Nice work one and all!

All the credit goes to MPS Alum Riley Curran for organizing, to Wellstone Student Council for recruiting students and participating, and to the following students who volunteered their time: Hoden A, Mohamed A, Jennifer N, Denise S, Bewketeu W, and Tsion W.  

Feb Student of the month
February student of the month - Mohamud M.

Mohamud goes above and beyond my expectations. I have Mohamud for two periods. He is always punctual and motivated to learn. He masters content and adds bonus work while no extra credit is promised. When we go to the computer lab, Mohamud is willing to assist his peers without being told to. In group assignments, Mohamud works well with all members. He is open to other cultures and languages. For the limited time I have had Mohamud, he has shown considerable amount of growth, leadership, and desire to excel.

Special thanks to Quinn for organizing this event.
