There were also three inflatables for students to play on.

In the Midwest Golf Dome, a crowd of school safety patrols there for the 59th Annual Ramsey County School Safety Patrol Recognition Event on May 8 jumped and cheered as they each tried to catch Beany Babies launched into the air from the balcony above.

The 59th Annual Ramsey County School Safety Patrol Recognition Event was held May 8 at Aldrich Arena and Midwest Golf Dome in Maplewood. The event, which honored the work school safety patrols do throughout the year, was attended by about 900 students from Arden Hills, Falcon Heights, Gem Lake, Hugo, Lauderdale, Little Canada, Maplewood, Mounds View, New Brighton, North Oaks, North St. Paul, Oakdale, Roseville, Shoreview, Vadnais Heights, White Bear Lake, White Bear Township and Woodbury. Children at the event were able to sit inside various emergency vehicles and even take a ride in an antique firetruck.

Excitement brimmed May 9 as Little Canada Elementary School students, parents and faculty took part in the annual Bike and Walk to School day. Parents and buses dropped students at Pioneer Park and then the kids hoofed it almost a mile along Desoto Street to school. The event is part of the Roseville Area School district’s work with the Statewide Health Improvement Plan grant and the Safe Routes to Schools initiative, with the goal of increasing student health, raising academic achievement, building community and fostering environmental awareness.

Dec. 4-10, schools around the world celebrated the Hour of Code, which introduces students to the field of computer science. 

“The activities are geared toward getting kids excited about computer science,” explains Miles Lawson, the Roseville Area Schools’ curriculum coordinator for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programing. “This event is an intentional effort to show students that something they can do as an 8-year-old is the same thing an adult does as a career.” 

Over the course of the week, students across Roseville Area Schools participated in activities such as programming robots like Dash and Dot and Bee Bots, creating their own video games and apps, meeting engineers from Abbott Laboratories to learn how doctors use computer programs to perform ablations with catheters on human hearts, and learning programming languages such as Swift, Scratch, Scratch Junior and Python. 

“Coding isn’t this mysterious thing that only a few people can do,” says Lawson. “Anyone can be a computer software developer, and our workforce is going to need a lot of computer scientists and engineers soon, which means it is never too early to pique students’ interests in coding and programming.”

During an unseasonably warm, late November day, a few people got out to enjoy one of East Side St. Paul’s hidden treasures the Bruce Vento Nature Sanctuary.

The sanctuary, which is bordered by train tracks and bluffs up top is Indian Mounds Regional Park is home to a variety of wildlife, including mallards that call the sanctuary home for the winter.

Perhaps, too, the ducks like to hang around for the bread tossed by East Side residents.

The park included remnants of the summer, like an hornet nest

It’s a tradition for the North St. Paul Fire Department to host a booya fundraiser every fall — this year’s event was held Oct. 8 at Casey Lake Park.

Even before firefighters began distributing booya Oct. 8, long lines had formed. This year the booya “sold out in record time,” according to the fire department’s Facebook page. Some 510 gallons of booya were sold out in about half an hour.

It was sold both by the individual bowls and by the pot.

James Nippoldt of Oakdale was excited get a taste of the booya before it sold out. He’s been to all but two of the booya events held over the past 72 years. His parents, who lived in North St. Paul, started taking him to the event when he was a boy.

St. Jerome Elementary School in Maplewood celebrated Kindness in Chalk Day Oct. 2. This national campaign was started in 2015 by a Minnesota blogger as an anti-bullying movement. Kind messages written in chalk are intended to be an inexpensive way to make someone’s day. Students of St. Jerome Elementary School celebrated by drawing pictures and writing messages in front of their school building before classes started.

Above left, Anya, a fifth grader at St. Jerome Elementary School said she chose “Rock on!” as her message because “fighting bullying is doing a good job.”

Ella, right, and her sister Mary, left, worked together on a drawing. Ella made a heart, and Mary wrote “Jesus loves you.” Ella said that this was a fun way to start the morning and that she thinks people will feel happy when they see the drawings as they enter the school.

It didn’t take long for the sidewalk in front of the school to fill up with little messages and drawings. Julia, who is in third grade, drew baby Jesus as Superman to lift the spirits of her fellow students.

The morning of Kindness in Chalk Day, the pavement at St. Jerome Elementary School had not yet completely dried from rain the night before, but students didn’t let that dampen their messages. Tristan, a fourth grader, wrote “Kindness” in blue.
