The excitement of back-to-school preparations can bring back fond memories of youthful school days.

This school year, raise grades with online learning tools
Posted: July 17, 2014 - 12:02 pm

Unfortunately, the pace of classroom learning can’t be tailored to every student’s individual needs - particularly these days, as class sizes are growing and funding for special enrichment programs becomes limited.

For most parents, weekday mornings before school are like a challenging math problem: pack backpacks and lunches, plus get yourself ready for work – minus the luxury of unlimited time. But skipping breakfast should not be part of the equation.

Local teacher gives back to his school
Updated: July 16, 2014 - 12:25 pm

Three days a week you will find Andy Morales at Rio Vista Elementary School.

Technically, Morales is on summer vacation, but still comes out those three days a week to tend to various projects he has going on.

Graduating high school and entering college was the most exciting time of my life, as it should be for most 18-year-olds. To me, it meant no 11 p.m. curfew, a break from my old friends with a chance to make new ones, and (perhaps most anticipated) college parties. The list goes on and on. And on and on and on… the possibilities were endless. Want to order a sandwich at 2 a.m.? Do it. Want to sleep in until dinnertime? Do it. No one is stopping you. No one is telling you no.
