My name is Gabbi Coppa, and I am a freshman here at Cannon School. I am organizing a dress drive for Operation Deploy Your Dress, an organization that collects formal dresses/accessories for military families who attend special events and can’t afford formal wear. My father was deployed when my older sister was a young child, and my mother and sister lived at Fort Campbell, an army post in Tennessee. They met many families, including the founders of Operation Deploy Your Dress, who moved all over the country and struggled financially without a steady income.

Room 404 – The CSG Room

Many of you have gotten the opportunity to check out the Coding/Maker Computer Lab and esports room in 404 in the MiLL. If you haven’t seen it yet, come check it out!

Cannon School Gaming (CSG) esports is a club open to all Cannon students. Email Mr Tran (ttran@cannonschool.org) to join.

Please remember:

  • During class blocks, absolutely no gaming activities are allowed, as the room is an academic resource during that time. Absolutely no students may use the room during their drop period.
  • In order to gain access to the room outside of academic time, students need to be part of CSG (but not necessarily on a competitive team) in order to use the room so that they can be held accountable for CSG rules, Cannon’s RUP, and in-person/online behavior.
  • Before or after school, lunch time, and Office Hour (not Student Life or CORE) use is okay with a staff or faculty member present.
  • CSG esports team matches and practices take priority in the room.
  • Absolutely no food and drinks are allowed in the room or the couches outside, but you can eat at the MiLL tables . Water is okay but cannot be placed on desks.

Masking Protocol Reminder

Hello US community-

As we all return to campus this week, we want to remind everyone of the importance of proper masking. This Omicron variant is particularly contagious and to help ensure that we can all remain on campus, it is important that everyone who is inside be properly masked at all times. If you need to remove your mask while eating, that is acceptable, but your mask should be back on as soon as you are finished. Proper masking means having your mask covering both your nose and mouth. If you need a break from masking, you are encouraged to go outside. 

Let’s keep our community healthy and safe!
