Middle School Café Night at the Grauer School
Grauer's Visual and Performing Arts Department presented the first Middle School Café Night event of the year on Wednesday, December 4. The evening included musical performances and drama monologues presented by the Music and Theatre departments, as well as a display of colorful art projects presented by the Visual Arts department in Meyer Hall.
Thanks to all of the talented Middle School student performers and artists, Isaac Langen, Tom Hopper, Courtney Conway, Thor Sigurdsson, Erin Langen, and Johnny King for presenting this wonderful event for our Grauer students and their families! We'd also like to thank Tom Hopper and the AV Team for setting up the AV for the event; Dina Treibel and Arthur P. '23 for filming the event; the Senior Class for selling refreshments to raise funds for Grad Nite; and everyone else who helped to make this event successful.
