Change is in the air. We are seeing it at the national level, the state level, as well as locally here in Cloquet.

One of the major changes we are seeing is in the workforce. Help wanted signs are everywhere. Businesses are having to reduce days/hours due to lack of staff. Wages are rising as businesses compete for those seeking employment. Members of the older generation are retiring. Employees are resigning from their positions to explore new opportunities, whether to work with a different company or try entrepreneurship.

School districts, including Cloquet, are not immune to this shift, and we seek ways to attract the staff needed to operate day-to-day. As an example, substitute wages were recently increased to add incentive to work in our school district.

If you or someone you know are seeking a new opportunity or a change in career, we encourage you to consider working for the Cloquet School District. Many positions are offered during the weekday which makes for an ideal work/family balance. Substitute positions allow flexibility in choosing which days work best for each applicant. This is great for retirees, college students or those looking to supplement their income. If you are younger with limited work history, working for a school district is a great way to build your resume.

We live in a time of great political turmoil, when the trends of the previous century — the expansion of voting rights, the extension of civil liberties, the broadening of the belief that all Americans are entitled to opportunity — are threatened with reversal. Whatever the course of these political battles, the founders’ challenge couldn’t be clearer: Whether this remains a nation of promise to all is up to us.
"Praying can be intimidating, and our history of making prayer obligatory and reverent hasn’t been particularly helpful, in my view. ... I would encourage us to view prayer as simply a conversation with God, or Jesus if that is more comfortable. You can pray to the Holy Spirit too, or Mother Earth, for that matter."
Choose to be home, wherever that might be. And if you need a new sense of home, go find it, even in the dead of winter.
