Wellstone is a Peace Site

On November 24th, Wellstone celebrated two events: Thanksgiving and the rededication of Wellstone as an International Peace Site. It was a "Peace-giving celebration". The Students for Peace group and our Student Council organized a 40 minute event during 7th period in the gym. Wear white for Wellstone!

Please take the time to appreciate the peace pole outside Wellstone's main entrance. It has the saying "May Peace Prevail on Earth" in many languages.  Peace Sites strive to follow these practices:

1. Seek peace within yourself and others

2. Reach out in service

3. Protect the environment

4. Respect diversity

5. Be a responsible citizen of the world

Wellstone is a Celebration & Focus School

Wellstone is a Celebration-Eligible School!

The purpose of the Celebration School recognition is to identify Minnesota Title I schools that have demonstrated both excellence on the MMR which measures school performance in the areas of student proficiency, student growth, closure of the achievement gap, and graduation rates as well as success with initiatives that have led to positive student outcomes.

This year Wellstone International High School has been designated a focus school under the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The designation is based on student performance data that placed our school among the ten percent of schools making the largest contribution to the state’s achievement gap.
