Sometimes you just have to stop and reflect on the good things in life, as Dr. Grauer does in this week's column where he looks back on his busy and fulfilling week filled with moments of "real reality".
The Science Fair was held on Thursday, January 11, and it proved to be a fun evening with fantastic parent involvement and support. Commendations go to our grade level winners and Grauer Bucks fundraiser winners!
According to educational research, one of the biggest things parents want to know from their schools is: "What do we need to know about technology to support our students at school?" As it happens, much of what teachers want parents to know is not how to properly use technology, but how to separate children from it.
The Grauer School, one of San Diego’s premier prep schools, was founded in 1991 by Dr. Stuart Grauer to give teens a voice. Our students have matriculated to the nation’s finest colleges and universities. Our campus and diverse programs accommodate approximately 150 students in grades seven through 12.
Students spend their days in a Socratic environment on our green, six-acre campus in Encinitas, California. We want our students to try classes for fun, make mistakes, follow a passion, and do things that they are drawn to, rather than plotting out a preordained or controlled path. We believe they will achieve more enduring outcomes and passions in this way, and develop values like personal motivation, freedom, and courage.

The competitions will be held in Meyer Hall on the Grauer campus, located at 1500 S. El Camino Real in Encinitas. These events are free and open to the public, and kid-friendly. Everyone is welcome to attend to view a great demonstration of Robotics and Gracious Professionalism in action!
The recommended donation for this event is $5.00 per person. All proceeds from the event go towards Daraja Academy. Daraja is one of the first all-girls boarding schools in Kenya. The Grauer Girl Rising Club's goal is to raise $2,500, enough to sponsor one year of education for a Daraja girl. More information on Daraja can be found here: www.daraja-academy.org.
Please come and show your support for this student-led night of "empowering" performances!
