Grauer Seniors Present Advocacy & Activism Fair
From Jessi Brown, Government Teacher: The annual Advocacy and Activism Fair took place in Meyer Hall on November 30, showcasing projects presented by 12th Grade students in Government class. The advocacy and activism project is an assignment where the students take the initiative to learn about and act on a major world problem they care about. The Government students set up booths with posters, flyers, and presentations in Meyer Hall, and shared their passionate, well-articulated ideas with other students and teachers. They also offered possible solutions and activism that can be done to help combat these major world problems. The topics that were presented included: food insecurity, fast fashion, paid family leave, voting rights, racial profiling, LGBTQ+ mental health, and ocean pollution. It was inspiring to see younger students walk away so inspired by the Seniors with these very relevant issues.
Although the current issues in our country and in our world seem overwhelming, Dr. Grauer puts everything into perspective by reminding us what is really important.
In this week's column, Dr. Grauer reflects on the joy of sharing the bounty from the Grauer Garden with school families.
It's an annual tradition for Grauer students to relieve some stress by petting cute and cuddly animals in a Petting Zoo on campus during Finals week. Grauer students had lots of fun petting a variety of animals including baby goats, rabbits, chickens, ducks, and an alpaca.
