Grauer Student Ski Trip
Eight Grauer Juniors and Seniors went to Snow Summit at Big Bear Mountain for a day of skiing on Monday, February 7. The day was orchestrated by Senior Savannah H. '22, as a way of reclaiming some expeditionary time lost from the pandemic, and it was a huge success. All of the skiers explored the entire mountain along with chaperoning skiers Head of School, Dr. Stuart Grauer, and Athletics Director, Trevor Olson. Ski days are a long Grauer tradition and very much a part of the founding practices. Dr Grauer noted, “When I was a teacher at International School of Bern, we went skiing at 10 AM every Friday during ski season—the whole school—and I vowed I would continue a tradition like that with my own school.” Savannah added, "This was a special experience to be with our peers out in nature doing an extreme sport. Stuart was wonderful because he skied a run with each of the students on our trip!" Trevor said, "Watching Stuart carve down the mountain with his students was powerful not only in its beauty, but also in its profound symbolism of the roots of The Grauer School."
A small group of Grauer community members, including Dr. Stuart Grauer and Grauer parent Meredith Garner, visited Homeboy Industries, the world's largest gang rehabilitation program. In this week's column, they share the beautiful lessons learned from this inspirational organization.
Dr. Grauer has been taking some time this summer to rejuvenate and recover from the stress and unpredictability of a global pandemic. We hope you enjoy the beautiful photos he shared from his summer adventures.
The Grauer School is assessing our diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) policies. DEI has to be done uniquely on our campus, to fit with our core values and evolve as necessary to be equitable. We're confident that "the Grauer edge" will guide this process to deepen the connections and sense of belonging in our community.
Dr. Grauer delivered this keynote address at The Grauer School's 2022 graduation ceremony. His address melds indelible images from his past with images of this year's graduates, as he ushers them into the next phase of their lives.
