The first Cannon Reading Invasion is coming soon! Cannon Reading Invasion is a way to celebrate our school’s passion for reading, to enjoy our school’s beautiful campus, and to share some quality time with members of our school community.

The idea is simple- students, faculty, and staff bring something to read and “invade” a space on campus. Cannon Reading Invasion is not a book club but a time to come together during the school day to enjoy the act of reading and to remind our fellow Cougars that reading is an important part of our lives.

The first Cannon Reading Invasion is scheduled for Friday, September 6th during student choice (1:05 pm to 1:30 pm). We will “invade” the quad.

The entire Cannon School community is invited to join fellow Cougars for some reading and relaxing in our most beautiful spaces on campus.

Cannon Theater Company auditions for both the fall production of Rhinoceros and the winter production of Much Ado About Nothing will take place after school from Wednesday August 28 through Wednesday September 4.

Those students with fall athletic commitments who would like to audition for the winter production but aren’t available to audition after school will be able to sign up for an alternative audition time.
