Help solve a HOLIDAY MYSTERY! Santa made an early delivery of TWO MacBook chargers to Academic Coaching a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, after only a couple of days in their new home, the MacBook chargers tragically disappeared ☹ .  Many Cannon Cougars have come seeking the chargers for their depleted laptops only to be turned away. What a holiday miracle it would be if these TWO white, clearly labeled “ACC – Room 606” MacBook chargers (boxes AND cords because no one likes a gift with pieces missing) could find their way back to Academic Coaching…

Santa and his helpers won’t ask any questions if/when these are returned – we just want them back, safe and sound, for all to use in room 606.


Feeling stressed or anxious? Having difficulty focusing? Want to learn how to better control your reactions to difficult situations?

Come to Room 616 during Office Hours on Tuesdays!

Every Tuesday Mrs. Rachelle Thompson will be leading sessions on Mindful Meditation.

In these sessions you will learn about the different tools that you can use to deal with everyday challenges. One day you may learn about ways to respond to anxiety and another day you might learn about tools you can use to improve our ability to focus… or settle your mind and body to fall asleep. This mindfulness practice helps settle the nervous system and provides a short period of reset in the middle of the busy day.

 

 

Seniors, Juniors & Sophomores are invited to sign-up in SCOIR for visits with College Admission Representatives. Representatives have the option to visit Cannon School in-person or via Zoom. Check SCOIR for the most up-to-date listing of college representative visits and to learn in what format they will visit Cannon. Use this Zoom Meeting Link to connect for virtual visits. You may come to The Cube if you are on campus during the rep visit and need a place to log into the Zoom session. We recommend you bring headphones for the Zoom visit! For the full remaining schedule, CLICK HERE.
