The SIG Sun
A news update about our bright students at Stuart!
A Note from the Director
It is my goal that every kid not only learn, but leave Stuart and SIG with wonderful memories!
- Kevin Amey, Director
Leaving SIG early for the day? Can't make it to camp at Stuart? Please email the Director at firstname.lastname@example.org in the morning to let us know your student will not be attending or will be leaving early. Include the student's name, reason for early pick-up/absence, and time of pick-up (if necessary). Thank you!
Building Geodesic Domes!
- The Horrifying Hurricanes: Most Creative
- 7-11: Special Effort - the students created an entire city of geodesic domes!
- The Pirates: Best Use of SIG Knowledge - the students applied their knowledge of trusses from earlier in the day to construct their dome!
- The Super STEM SIG Kids: Tallest Dome
- The Chimichanga Cheeseburgers: Most Accurate - the students were able to most accurately recreate the sample geo-dome!
For a sneak peek at some of our students' work, check out the pictures below!

Blurbs from our Instructors
- Emily's theater class has worked on focus and character building improvisational games and is now getting started on an abbreviated and modernized version of A Midsummer's Night Dream. Students are beginning to develop character sketches for their roles in the show.
- Emily's Detective Class has learned to observe evidence very closely and to make educated inferences. They looked through garbage to ascertain what they could about the inhabitants of a house, and now are making educated guesses about one another based on detailed depictions of rooms or backpacks.
- Students in Emily's Invention class researched Edison and Tesla and wrote imaginary letters from one inventor to the other. They also have been working on developing fluency and flexibility by coming up with lots of ideas fast!
- Students in Emily's code class researched the codes of the Underground Railroad and made patchwork quilts to places they care about.
- Based off the problems we did in class today, my kids mentioned "This is so much fun, but so hard at the same time!" They were really excited about what we worked on today. Check out our Math Challenge section for a peek at what's going on in Crystina's class!
- Over the past week, it has been so much fun getting to know each other, and share individual goals for Speaking, Writing, and Empowering! We have specifically been working on the elements of what makes a great speaker: body language, eye contact, inflection, tone, volume, etc. in addition to paying attention to one's voice in writing. Moving forward, we will focus on the writing process and how to use figurative language as an attention-grabber for an audience. I look forward to seeing what your children can do!
Over the past week, it has been great seeing your children's enthusiasm for Sports Stop! Each week we will focus on a different category of games and learn the defining characteristics of these categories; this past week, it has been tag games. Your children have been great at learning the rules for and participating in over 8 different kinds of tag games, and even inventing their own creative game-play to fit the "tag" category. Next week? Onto sports involving the use of a ball!
UNDER 10 minutes!
I hope everyone understands the new pick up system. I think it is working very well.
