Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at The Grauer School
The Grauer School celebrated the opening of its new Justice Center for The Performing Arts building with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, April 9. Representatives of the City of Encinitas, the County of San Diego, and the Encinitas Chamber of Commerce attended the ceremony. Special Grauer guests included current and former Board of Trustees members, faculty emeritus members, current and alumni parents, and other treasured members of our Grauer community.
The ceremony began with a welcome from Board Chair Craig Gertz, followed by a special Reflection blessing by Bill Harman with students holding items to represent the four elements of air, fire, water, and earth. Grauer student musicians performed several beautiful songs during the ceremony, including Wildfire and Unwritten. Dr. Stuart Grauer's speech addressed the significance of this momentous occasion and he thanked many of the people who have been instrumental in The Grauer School's success, with a special gift of appreciation for Board member David Meyer who coordinated the construction of the new building (you'll be able to read Dr. Grauer's entire speech in this week's Fearless Teaching column). The ceremony concluded with the Ribbon Cutting, orchestrated by the Encinitas Chamber of Commerce.
Special thanks to all of the Grauer families and community members who attended to join us in celebrating our completed campus!

Students today are chronically sleep-deprived, and yet we expect them to be able to learn and pursue their passions. Something has to give, so what’s going to give?
