Sigler Elementary Monday Memo

January 21st

#SiglerNation

#SiglerNation is a family who comes together focused on one goal; the success, growth and progress of our students and school community. We accomplish this with the mindset of being happy choosing the frame we view life through as we enter the doors of Sigler Elementary. Shawn Achor, the author of “The Happiness Advantage: The 7 Principles that Fuel Success and Performance at Work” states, “If you can raise somebody's level of positivity in the present, then their brain experiences what we now call a happiness advantage, which is your brain at positive performs significantly better than at negative, neutral or stressed. Your intelligence rises, your creativity rises, your energy levels rise. In fact, we've found that every single business outcome improves.” While we do not necessarily look at Sigler as a business, we do acknowledge improvement is the equivalent to success. With that understanding, we want you to join in our theme for the 18-19 school year...“Sigler is OUR Happy Place”.
