San Dieguito Union High School District Superintendent Rick Schmitt’s Monthly Update

The San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD) is proud to offer our students and families the choice of four unique and amazing high schools. Each year we strive to ensure that every student is able to attend his or her first choice in high schools, and we’ve been highly successful in this effort over many years. Recently, community members have asked the district to review current high school enrollment practices in response to concerns that some students who live nearby our two non-boundary schools (San Dieguito High School Academy & Canyon Crest Academy) were not admitted through the lottery process.

Rant with Randi: Empty Nest Blues

Randi Crawford

About a month ago, I received a text from a frustrated friend. She said that once your kids start getting serious about sports, especially at the high school level, there’s no time for anything else in your life.

She wrote, “Our lives have become ridiculous. The only time I see people is when I go to weddings or funerals. We don’t ever hang out with friends because our life is consumed with our kids’ sports. I want to make a concerted effort to change that and start living the way our parents did, and spending more quality time with our friends.”

My first reaction was that I agreed with her. Everything she said was accurate. Our family is totally consumed by youth sports. Everyone in my “bubble” is generally on a sports team with our kids, and while I have non-sports friends, I rarely hang out with them. What’s wrong with that picture, besides everything?

Protect the Cleveland National Forest

The Cleveland National Forest is a testament to nature joining forces with man to create and protect what life might be like in an almost-perfect world.

These wooded mountains and meadows of San Diego County are our last wilderness, one of the few remaining undisturbed settings we have left. The forest and mountains remind us of what life was like before man settled the area. They provide a home for animals and plants.

Everett Stunz, San Diego’s “premier linen and bed store,” has been in La Jolla for 51 years. It’s a business that has been in three families since it started in 1963, and Phil and Nicki Coller are the proud current co-owners.

The couple know a thing or two about sleep and its importance to wellness. People should be paying close attention to their sleep patterns as their overall health is very dependent upon the quantity and the quality of sleep they get each night, according to Phil Coller. “If you don’t get enough sleep, everything suffers. It creates conditions that are very bad for you,” he said.

Celebrating independence and freedom

Independence and freedom — I can’t think of two better things to celebrate.

The Fourth of July is a great family holiday. This year, my family and I are set to march in parades in Scripps Ranch, Mira Mesa and Rancho Bernardo. We love to see everyone dressed in red-white-and-blue, the Stars and Stripes snapping in the breeze and fireworks bursting in the night sky.

Peri-Peri brings spicy taste of South Africa to local residents

Hot Rock Filet Mignon – Certified Angus

Restaurateur William Sussman has spiced things up on the North County dining scene with the addition of Peri-Peri.
The dining establishment — named after its signature fiery sauce — opened March 1 in the Torrey Highlands Village Center, at 7845 Highland Village Place, Suite C101, in San Diego.
“We’re looking forward to giving San Diego’s South African community a taste of the traditions they love, whilst introducing these new, vibrant flavors to the local San Diego community and creating a hub of gastronomical goodness for everyone to enjoy,” Sussman said.

Rant with Randi: How well do we really know people — and how much should we try to do so?

Randi Crawford

C.S. Lewis once said, “What can you ever really know of other people’s souls — of their temptations, their opportunities, their struggles? One soul in the whole of creation you do know: and it is the only one whose fate is placed in your hands. If there is a God, you are, in a sense, alone with Him.”

I just read a story about a girl who was abducted by her mother’s live-in boyfriend, and she was found 10 years later. When they questioned the neighbors, they all said what a great guy he was, and that he was always having fun parties for his wife and family. Do we ever really know people?
