Electronic media means no one has to be alone.
We alternate which parks we walk the dogs in each night. The pair seem to enjoy the different scenery and scents, with their heads hanging out the window, and clearly enjoying the new spots to smell at the different parks. So last Saturday we went to Longview Park on Clayton Road, near Mason Road. When we pulled into the lot there was a “party bus” with kids from Lafayette High School in prom dresses and tuxes getting off the bus. Waiting for them were their parents. The kids then dutifully went to pose with their dates in front of some horses in a corral or by a pond. On the way back to our car, I mentioned to the bus driver how things have changed. When we used to pick up our dates, we both were anxious to get away from our parents …

Students and parents from throughout the Rockwood School District—part of which includes Chesterfield—perused the aisles of materials from nearly 145 college institutions, trade schools and military programs at Rockwood's Lafayette High School Monday evening. Marquette High School in Chesterfield is the Rockwood School District. Some attendees hunted for specific details from specific entities; others gathered quite a large variety of materials. Regardless of approach, it's difficult to find a better opportunity than Rockwood's annual district event for analyzing that many post-high school opportunities in one spot.
