SIG at SERRA CANYON 2015
TEACHING STUDENTS, NOT CURRICULUM
Welcome to Week One
Dear SIG SC Community,
Welcome to the first week of SIG Sierra Canyon. Day three is bringing more adventure and we can already see friendships and curiosity developing. We have three of our instructors (Abigail Craig, Lou Ramos, and Curtis Cornell) back from last year and we thrive in the office as we listen to all of the instructors talking about their projects and plans. You'll see this at the end of the newsletter as well, but communication is key to our program. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and our SIG Sierra Canyon telephone number is 661-425-6336.
Thanks so much for allowing us to enjoy the company of your child during our three weeks together
Friday is Picture Day
Friday, July 17, 2015 is picture day this year. Please make sure your student wears the t-shirt. I must admit that I am seeing the t-shirt this year more than any other year I have been with SIG. The color is magnificent and the message is clear; we come to SIG to learn more and be challenged. Look for a SIG SC picture from Friday in upcoming newsletters.
We are looking for a mascot...
I have come to the conclusion that some of the best discussions come early in the morning. This morning was one of those moments. We made the statement, "SIG, Sierra Canyon the home of the...", we don't have a mascot! So we will have a mascot contest with each classroom. Students will rally for their ideas during the activity part of lunch and a vote will be taken on picture day during lunch. Watch for the results in the next newsletter.

Crazy Sock Day Approaches
Crazy Sock this year is being held on Thursday, July 23, 2015. I have already heard a few snippets of what kinds of socks are being considered. Of course, I can't share that, it's confidential. Keep an eye for pictures to follow.
Parent meet and greet/upcoming events
A great thank you goes out to all of the parents and instructors able to make the Orientation, Saturday, July 11, 2015. If you did not have a chance to meet an instructor we will have our Parent Meet and Greet on Monday, July 20, 2015 from 8:15-8:45 (ending promptly) in the library on the second floor. Remember, you may park in the parking lot and take the elevator to "1". Turn right off the elevator and we are right inside the double doors. A continental breakfast will be served. We are all looking forward to meeting and greeting everyone. Having trouble finding us: (626) 425-6336
