Hey everyone!

Cougars Fighting Cancer is hosting our annual Pancake Breakfast Friday, December 13th! It is $5 for unlimited pancakes and access to the topping bar. It takes place right after Project Wrap-In, so after you wrap with your buddies, come enjoy some breakfast! All of the money goes to the American Cancer Society to help with cancer research, paying for treatments, and supporting families. We all know somebody who is fighting this battle and this is very near and dear to our heart.

ALSO, if anyone has a griddle, a spatula, a big cooking bowl, or a ladle, please email me at hgspringate@cannonschool.org. That would really help us out!

Many thanks,

Holly and CFC leadership

Project Wrap-In is Coming on December 13, 2019!

 Each student is asked to bring in one new, unused gift ($5- $15) to store in homeroom the week of December 9. Students in grades 9th-12th may instead buy a gift for a young child of any age with their own gender in mind if they would like; however, keep in mind that children benefiting from this outreach opportunity may also be teens. Additionally, students MUST bring wrapping materials like wrapping paper, TAPE, ribbon, bows, etc.

Our hope for all students is:

  • Bring in one present ($5-$15).
  • Contribute wrapping paper and/or other wrapping supplies. Extra tape is very helpful!
  • Bring a giving and positive attitude.
  • Have fun!

We are looking forward to making a difference in the lives of many children!
