Beam Signing Tradition at The Grauer School
Celebrating Tradition! The Grauer School's students, staff, and alumni came together for a Beam Signing Celebration on Wednesday, December 19. Everyone climbed a ladder to sign the large beam on the front of The Justice Center, Grauer's newest building that is currently in the final days of construction. Some just signed their name with a flourish, while others wrote their own personal message to dedicate the building.
This is a Grauer School tradition that has been celebrated for every building on our campus, as well as the sprinkling of sand and pebbles from all over the world under each foundation.
