Professor Steve’s Moab 240 Experience

240 miles, 89 hours, 4 minutes, and 21 seconds. Desert, mountains, heat, and snow did not keep Professor Steve from completing the endurance race, finishing in 36th place out of 260 overall. “I wanted the challenge of seeing how far I could go. In my own way, it's also a kind of selection process that I could put myself through. Something to set myself apart from who I was the day before. A distinct visual growth. And proof of progress,” Steve said. In January of 2022, Professor Steve applied to enter the Moab 240 mile endurance run. Over the next seven months, his typical training regime would change in order for him to put forth his best performance in the race. “I have done a 100 mile ultra two months prior and it destroyed me so I knew I needed to improve a lot.

August is Anti-Bully Month at GB!

Bullying can happen at school, on the playground, on a sports team, and in some cases even at home or online. But with so many different styles of bullying, such as verbal, physical, social, or cyber bullying, it can be difficult for children to understand how to solve the problem and how to face what may be a day-to-day situation in the best way possible. For the month of August, Gracie Barra will be holding classes twice a week that teach our younger students how to respond to many types of bullying, how to stand up for themselves and their friends, and hopefully build confidence and have fun while doing so! What will your child be learning this month? 1. What or who is a bully? - Understanding the root or the why of the person instigating the bullying or harm, can be helpful in solving the problem at hand.
