Grauer World Religions Class Field Trip to Scripps Labyrinth
From Clayton Payne and Bill Harman, World Religions Teachers:
The second half of Grauer's 9th grade class started World Religions class in January, while our first group switched over to take Health class with Trevor Olson. The class took a field trip to the Scripps Center of Integrative Medicine on Tuesday, January 13, where the students walked around their beautiful labyrinth. The labyrinth activity always marks the start of the students' journey through the semester of World Religions studies, and the class discusses the biological connections between rituals, prayer, and healing in preparation for this exercise.
Dr. Grauer explores the role of The Grauer School's trustees, and he invites you to weigh in with your opinion on what kind of trustees will be needed to support and sustain "The Grauer School Way" going forward.
In Dr. Grauer's weekly assembly message, he reminds students of the importance of self-care and staying on "the sunny side of life."
Does money talk? In this week's column, Dr. Grauer discusses the importance of making socially conscious investments that align investing strategies with the values of the school.
Dr. Grauer pays tribute to one of his role models, Sir Ken Robinson. He was a great supporter of authentic education, and a teacher who was always equally concerned with the development of the mind, body, and spirit.
The first day of school for the 2020-2021 school year, on Tuesday, August 25, was filled with smiles as students greeted their teachers and friends through Zoom screens.
In this week's column, Dr. Grauer discusses the safety precautions and protocols that must be put in place to reopen The Grauer School's campus.
