Grauer Student Fundraiser for Juvenile Diabetes Research
Congratulations to Grauer Senior Mia B. '21 for raising an impressive total of $2,085 this year during her 5th annual campaign for Juvenile Diabetes research! Mia said, "Thank you to everyone to generously donated to support JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). Your contribution will help fund life-changing breakthroughs in both Type 1 Diabetes technology and resources. Your support means a lot. Not just to me, but to everyone in the T1D community. To a cure!"
Head of School Dr. Stuart Grauer said, "I would like to personally commend Mia for your passion, organization, and impact. In this event—really more than an event …it’s a movement! — you have demonstrated The Grauer School Core Values in an exemplary and powerful way. And not just one of them, but all of them. Commendations on your efforts and hard work, and congratulations on the success of this event."
In this week's column, Dr. Grauer asks his students to consider other way to measure their success instead of focusing routinely on their grades.
The Period 7 Theatre Arts class produced a Brown Bag showcase on February 10. Nadia L. '21 and Lourdes F. '22 performed the one-act dramatic play "Poof" by Lynn Nottage during lunch for an appreciative audience on the quad.
The final rounds of the annual Grauer School Spelling Bee took place on February 11, when 7th and 8th graders competed to decide who will qualify to represent Grauer at The San Diego Union-Tribune Countywide Spelling Bee on March 17.
The Pre-Calculus class went to the beach on February 11 to evaluate their ability to write trigonometric equations from data found by observing the breaking waves. The students found the mathematics in something they love and appreciate... while having fun!
Thank you to all of our wonderful Grauer parents for their contributions to the Faculty & Staff Appreciation Luncheon on February 12!
Courage is the unwritten core value that Grauer students are using to get through this pandemic. Dr. Grauer reflects that he never realized how courageous it is just to live life in joy, in smiles, in song, and in play.
