The High School ASB/Leadership class hosted one of our most popular events of the year, our Back to School Water Balloon Bonanza, on Friday, October 17, on the Grauer field. Grauer students and faculty competed in 3 rounds to get each other wet by throwing water balloons at each other.
Welcome, Grauer Alumni!
A Grauer School diploma confers something special upon every individual, something instantly recognizable, like a great brand. And the network is growing into the hundreds. With this growth, the value of the Grauer diploma continues to gain in stature and distinction. Grauer grads are graduating from colleges of choice at rates that far surpass norms. They are moving into every field you can imagine, including, as you can guess: non-profits, technology, visual and performing arts, business, teaching … and, of course, parenting. The thing that does not seem to change is: you cannot typecast a Grauer student. They are courageous and imaginative.
The Grauer School Alumni Association was formally launched only recently, in 2013. Since then, our alumni have been sending us their key photos, milestones, and memories. In fact, we heard from one alumnus who was about to embark upon a trip to Africa to see the Grauer’s gorilla. We hope we will hear from you, too! Send us an update using the form on this page.
As major stakeholders, alumni are increasingly steeped in Grauer affairs. We currently have two alumni employees and three alumni parent board members. In fact, 8% of all charitable giving received at Grauer last year was from alumni, a new high. We know this will increase steadily as alumni move through life and are still able to retain the extraordinary sense of deepening they went through while coming of age at Grauer. We could not be prouder of our alumni.
Grauer Physics students have been learning about acceleration, and in particular, the acceleration of objects caused by earth's gravitational field. Students dropped different objects and collected data in order to calculate the actual acceleration of the objects and compare it to expected values.
