Grauer Middle School "Fall Ball" Dance
From Paige Prindle, Middle School ASB Faculty Advisor:
The Middle School ASB hosted their "Big Fun Party and Fall Ball" Dance on Friday, November 15, in Meyer Hall. Many students came decked-out in particularly eccentric outfits in honor of the party's "It's Complicated" theme—well done! Students were treated to pizza, snacks, and desserts while dancing to the musical stylings of our very own Music Department's DJ Tom Hopper. A very special thank you to faculty chaperones Dominique Bartoughian and Nick Scacco, student chaperone Francesca M. '20, and DJ Tom Hopper. And an extra-special thank you to the Melcher family for their generous snack donations!
In this week's column, Dr. Grauer shares some wisdom about why students may not be performing to their full potential at school.
Schools and parents need a better definition of “success” for our youth. Instead of solely measuring scholastic aptitude and achievement, we must also measure social and emotional development, moral and character development, non-cognitive skills, and student engagement.
In this week's column, Dr. Grauer shares the simple process of immersing yourself in nature and taking a walk using the Japanese process of Shinrin-yoku.
Dr. Grauer asks the question: Can we change the definition of intelligence to include a greater spiritual and ecological sensitivity? That would be a fantastic challenge for our schools.
In this week’s column, Dr. Grauer, tongue in cheek, considers the loneliness of teaching children about the sacred connectedness of all creation.
The Grauer School's FTC Shockwave Robotics #3848 team had a great performance at their second competition of the season. The team won 3 of their 5 matches, and their robot performed extremely well.
