This week’s schedule: 

 



Ella Kungl demonstrated TEAMWORK and KINDNESS by helping Student Council. Thanks so much, Ella!

At our Concert on Saturday 4/17 Owen Koehler stepped up and helped a younger student. He loaned his own cello to this student so that they could play and have a successful concert. This even meant that he might not be able to play some songs but Owen very selflessly put others in front of himself. This was all done while I was conducting and leading other orchestra groups on stage. I appreciate Owen’s maturity, teamwork, and kindness so much. Thank you Owen!


 

No birthdays.

This week’s schedule: 

 



Karon Boyd was a seriously awesome and KIND human being when he witnessed a teacher holding the door for a stream of students, and instead of going with the crowd, he insisted she go ahead of him and held the door for her.

Alicia Equan, Ben Childress, Kenlee Griffin, Kennedy Nemechek, Josie Thillet, Colin Bullard and Carter Rice demonstrated RESPECT, TEAMWORK, PASSION and KINDNESS when they spent time with Social Studies Teaching candidates and shared their valuable feedback. Thank you so much!

Olivia Neilsen, Madelena Cagnina, and Tierney Finn were KINDNESS personified when they brought a teacher Starbucks because they suspected she was having a bad day. Who does that?! Olivia, Madelena and Tierney–that’s who!

Hudson Davis showed TEAMWORK by helping move all the music gear from the CPAC back to classrooms after this weekend’s concert.

Jimmy Kinsella expressed KINDNESS by discovering and turning in a ring found in the MiLL. 

Max McDermott showed RESPECT by helping to right the class when some of his peers were off course.

***Hi, my name is Olivia Harper. A few weeks ago, for my Capstone, I had a survey for people to fill out about what fun activities you might want to explore on your own. Thank you to those who filled it out! I have now used those responses to create my website as my final project. I would love it if you could click on the link and check it out. There is a page on there for suggestions/feedback and it would be great if you could tell me what you think. Thank you!

Anna Kinken was “caught” in an act of KINDNESS by a staff member who wanted to be sure to celebrate her. Anna stopped and turned around to open a door for two students whose hands were full and they couldn’t get to their key card. What a sweet young lady!

Ann Robertson helped a teacher move furniture across the first floor so that her classroom could be ready for larger classes! Thanks Ann for your KINDNESS.

****CALLING ALL STUDENTS AND FACULTY! COUGARMUN 2021! 

The Cannon School Model UN Team would like to announce our annual CougarMUN on April 17th from 9am-12pm in the Upper School building! CougarMUN is a fun, laid-back Model UN conference for Cannon students (8th through 12th) and faculty. No experience is needed and there is an option to work with a partner if you don’t feel comfortable working by yourself! We will announce the fun topic we will be covering soon! Because of the complexity, we will sadly not offer an online option, only in person. Masks are required and there will be social distancing. Faculty, we have several teachers every year participate, so don’t be shy! 

 

If interested, please respond to this google form by Sunday, April 11th: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdyDugA9Zny94vEhkkRitSYYeKTBRuGl6kajQwpu2yrMbzXLQ/viewform?usp=sf_link
