SILC: Weekly Digest (1/23/2011)

Dear SILC Students, Parents, Teachers and Volunteers:
[1] Thanks to all of you who are volunteering at SILC. It would not be possible to run SILC without the passion and dedication of its volunteers. Are you aware that some of the twincities organizations (for example, 3M) provide matching grants for the volunteer hours their employees have given to a non-profit organization?
If you work at such an organization, please consider nominating SILC as receipient of the grants for the volunteer hours you are giving to SILC.

(Thanks to Kusum Gosain for alerting me to this possibility of matching grants for volunteer hours)
[2] We are happy to let you know that a permanant web site has been registed.   To catch up the news of the current academic year, you simply have to remember   "silcblogs"  and type in to see what is happening at SILC.  You can also navigate from the main web site as well.
[3] Have you seen the IAM Auditions videos Raj Menon has provided? If not, here are the youtube links (these are posted to SILC blogs as well)

[4]  We are working to bring out SILC Handbook and Directory (Big thanks to Raj Menon for taking the initiatie to pull this together). It provides a good reference to SILC community on what is expected from each of us as well as information about SILC events.
The directory will contain the following details.

Parents Address
