It was no surprise to anyone who has ever had a student at Minot's Sunnyside Elementary School that Principal Cindy Cook was honored by winning the 2016 - 2017 National Distinguished Principal Award.Cindy is just a wonderful person to know, always upbeat, always concerned about making sure her students and staff are the best. (My personal opinion as a parent who has had two kids attend Sunnyside.)When presented the award she said "Feeling sorry for low preforming children does not fix the problem, but rather high expectations produce results and that is the leadership philosophy at Sunnyside".My hats off to Cindy, she deserves the praise and more that this honor gives her.As a Realtor I can tell you that many people have the misconception that Sunnyside is Minot's poorest school distric...

Affordable housing in Minot ND is somewhat of a oxymoron with prices that have pretty much tripled over the last 5 years (due to our oil boom and other positive growth factors). Considering our wonderful financial circumstances in Minot this house is the gem many families are looking for who can not afford our average home price of over $300,000. MMLS#142718   Great starter home! 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath. This house has newer shingles, furnace, flooring and appliances. Very large fenced yard is perfect for kids and pets. Optional additional lot adjacent  available. Unfinished basement has a high ceiling and is ready for your design. Total of 1,416sq'. This home WAS NOT in the flood nor is it in the flood plain. $119,900.

School Supply List for Sunnyside Elementry in Minot ND Hopefully you did NOT miss orientation day yesterday at Sunnyside School but if you did and if you missed the supply lists posted at Kmart and Walmart here it is. Please pardon the highlighted items as those were what we needed personally for our own Sunnyside student, Timmothy. The flood that destroyed the river vally of Minot was particularly hard on several elementary schools. School has been post-poned a week and is scheduled to start on Tuesday September 6th. Many think that another postponement is inevitable. Some schools were totally destroyed and are meeting in temporary classrooms. Word has it that some have no desks, chairs, teaching materials and so on. It's going to be interesting. I can only encourage you to keep checki...

My Sons 1st Extracurricular Activity This week my son, Timmothy, had his first "concert" and the season finally of DRUMKidz. Timmothy has really enjoyed this program and no doubt will be eager to pick it up again next year. You will notice from the shirts the kids are wearing that DRUM is an acronym. It stands for Discipline, Respect, Unity, & Music. The teacher threw in a bunch of other virtues but they really don't make sense for the acronym. I very vaguely remember music class in elementary school and in fact what I do remember was a teacher came in about once every two weeks and we sang for about a half hour. I don't even remember putting on a "show". I can't imagine being an elementary school music teacher. I believe Sunnyside schools music teacher is very talented and very patient...

WHO STOLE THE COOKIES? WHO STOLE THE COOKIES? When I was told my daughter Tina was Alice from Alice in Wonderland in the 5th Grade school play I was really proud that my little girl was Staring in the play. Whoops, this play featured the star of about every children's book in the library (but I'm still proud). The play was adapted from something the teacher found on the Internet. It was a Who Done It. Someone stole the cookies collected for charity at the library. The culprit(s) could have been: Sherlock Holmes or any of his 3 investigators, Alice in Wonderland (played by the Fabulous Tina Natalie Timm), Cinderella, Snow White, Peter Pan, Goldilocks, Aladdin (Oh what the heck I bragged about my daughter so why go one with the list of 21 more characters. I won't tell you who done it just...
