Grauer's Middle School Robotics Team Competes at Legoland - December 2018
From Peggy Gardner, Middle School Robotics Coach:
Congratulations to Grauer's Middle School Robotics team, the Grauer GorilLegos #3195, for competing in the First Lego League (FLL) SoCal Regional Tournament at Legoland on Saturday, December 8. The Middle School Robotics team members are Gabriel C. '23, Ethan D. '23, John Joseph H. '23, Adrien C. '23, Michael L. '23, Symphonie L. '24, Eli D. '24, and Nicholas H. '24.
The team started off the day with 3 rounds of judging, where they had to stand in front of the judges and talk about 3 topics: how their team used the Core Values of FLL; their Project presentation that proposed a solution to create Astro Gummies for astronauts to eat in their spacesuits; and their Robot design and programming.
Then, they competed in 3 rounds of actual robot competition, where Adrien and Ethan ran the robot through missions on stage in the Legoland Showplace Theater. Their top score was 81 points, and the team finished the competition in 37th place out of the 54 teams who were competing that day.
As we finish out this Middle School Robotics season, I'm so proud of our team members for working together so well, for supporting each other, and for being such an awesome team! We would like to thank our mentor Morgan Brown; our wonderful parent mentor Paula Hamma who helped our team so much with the Project and Core Values; and all of our team parents for their support during our competition season. We couldn't have done it without all of them!
This week, Dr. Grauer invites you to go far out into nature in a vivid and immersive short read, long on implications.
This week, sit in on a Grauer School faculty meeting as Dr. Grauer workshops teachers on a great life passion: “Getting outside!”
Holiday Greetings from The Grauer School! We hope you enjoy viewing our Grauer Holiday video, and we wish you a beautiful and happy holiday season.
The Grauer School's students, staff, and alumni came together for a Beam Signing Celebration on Wednesday, December 19. Everyone climbed a ladder to sign the large beam on the front of The Justice Center.
Is your child self-driven and in charge of their own lives? This week's column gives some important advice for parents who want to set their children on a path towards being responsible for getting their work done, without nagging, arguing, and constant reminders.
