SOUCHERAY: Summer can be time for enrichment
Summer is officially here, at least for all the children who ran from their buildings and embraced their delicious break last week. So how dare I suggest that you make a trip to a local retailer to purchase summer enrichment materials, or go to your local library's website and check...

Viewpoint: Reflections from a superintendent's first year
As I reflect on my first year as superintendent and the school year that has concluded, I would like to take this opportunity to highlight some of our accomplishments and what I've learned about District 833 and its community. It is an old cliché to comment on the pace of the year,...

Viewpoint: The end of the ranking system: A graduate's perspective
A recent 833 school district change will implement a removal of class rankings at East Ridge, Park and Woodbury high schools. The purpose for this change is to prevent the ranking system from negatively affecting any senior high school student during the college admission process...

Viewpoint: 'Education session' was a successful one
I am proud of the work that was accomplished during my first term as state representative. Minnesota has been in an ongoing cycle of budget deficits for the last decade, due to one-time money, spending shifts and gimmicks. This session, we delivered an honest solution to fund Minnesota's...

Soucheray: Consider what's going in your summer body
Now that it appears summer is here, it's time to pull out our clothes that are more form fitting and revealing. Are you ready for this? Did you stay in shape over this incredibly long winter so that you can put on last year's wardrobe, or do you need to succumb to a trip to the mall? Taking...

Viewpoint: Motivation suffers under District 833's class-rank change
Recently District 833 announced the plan to discontinue class ranking. Beginning next year, East Ridge, Park and Woodbury high schools will no longer report student ranking, "unless there is an unlikely event in which not doing so puts our students at a disadvantage." The decision...

Viewpoint: Sobiech's message resonates, inspires
It has been an incredibly emotional period for many of us in the Stillwater Area Public Schools' community. In a few short days we've celebrated with hundreds of our young people as they prepare for the next exciting stage of their lives, and we've cried as a school family as we've...

Soucheray: Need to argue? Consider this tack
Probably the most common reason couples identify for seeking therapy is a lack of thoughtful, considerate communication. They say they don't know how to talk to each other so that both partners feel they have been heard, or how to share their feelings so that no one gets upset.

Viewpoint: Sorting out Minnesota's prison system

VIEWPOINT: As adults, we can't underestimate the value of playtime
When we see little children at play, they are immersed in the present moment, with seemingly no distractions. In fact, if we were to call their name and they appeared to ignore us, they would contend they did not hear us. When they are playing, they enter a different world, one that...

Communicating with a loved one who has Alzheimer's disease or another similar form of dementia can be a bit of a puzzle sometimes. We find that as the disease progresses, it is increasingly difficult to catch and hold their attention. At times, they seem to simply choose to, at best,...
