Grauer 7th Grade Field Trip to Balboa Park
From Paige Prindle, 7th Grade English Teacher:
The 7th grade students spent a beautiful, sunny day in San Diego's Balboa Park on Tuesday, November 26, along with chaperones Tori Faxon, Paige Prindle, and Nick Scacco. Our field trip began with a tour of the Museum of Man, followed by a picnic lunch on the grass in front of the historic Botanical Building and Lily Pond. After lunch, students participated in a "scavenger hunt" that gave them an opportunity to reflect on what they experienced at the Park while making connections among all of their classes and using skills that they have learned this year in their Global Insights, Life Science, Math, and English classes. We all enjoyed spending a fun day together in the sun before the rains came and before we spent the rest of the week celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday with our families!
In this time of great turmoil, our country and our world are confronting systemic racism and white privilege. In this week's column, Dr. Grauer reflects on his time teaching European culture, and how the smell of truffles expanded the world view of his students.
Grauer's Summer School program continued to provide educational and entertaining classes for our summer students.
We want to be the teachers of a great generation that rises to incredible, complex challenges with courage and clear thinking.

Grauer students and staff members have been participating in "Black Lives Matter" protests taking place in San Diego.
