From The Spectator: Exploring St. Paul
By Lisa Lilyerd '19, courtesy of The Spectator

Let’s be honest, when someone says the “Twin Cities,” we immediately acknowledge Minneapolis. Minneapolis is sort of the big celebrity everyone knows, while St. Paul is the forgotten twin. But recently I had taken the opportunity to ‘discover’ this odd but charming city, and I must say that my mind had changed afterwards.  
On our trip, the first stop we made was the Securian building, which is in a financial district in the middle of St. Paul. We explored there for a bit, and then met with one of the executives who taught us about St. Paul. We discussed the Excel Center, the baseball field, and a new soccer arena that they are putting in. It was all very exciting to see the expansions they are making for St. Paul. Read more...

From The Spectator: Refugee Simulation
By Abigail Hansen '17, courtesy of The Spectator

Home: a safe, comfortable, familiar place–a place of origin. To most of us at SSM, home is something we often don’t give a second thought. Although many of us may be away from our families, we can be sure of returning home to them. We do not have to worry about our families’ safety, or if they will be there when we go back. Unfortunately to many around the world, these concerns are an everyday reality.

Forty Upper School students from SSM recently had the opportunity to partake in a Refugee Simulation, run by a 1.5-generation Cambodian refugee, Sam Ouk, Faribault Public Schools’ EL Coordinator and a member of Faribault Diversity Coalition. In the simulation, students were no longer themselves, but refugees in Cambodia. Read more...
