This is mandatory for all House Impetus members – but it should not take the entire Choice time. Try to think of this as one of our “practices” before the House Games. After all, we’ve gotta know the rules to master the game. House Impetus, let’s get pumped up to keep the Gossage Cup!

The first 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.

Any student who is a LEADER of a current club or a new club must attend an informational meeting during lunch on Thursday, August 29th at 11:30 in Sra. Zelaya’s room, US 512.  We will be going over very important information regarding the Club Fair and what you will need to do to prepare for it.  Please see Sra. Zelaya if you cannot attend.


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. Students can sign up for a half-hour audition slot and pick up audition info by the Cannon Theater Company bulletin board located in the Upper School building inside the stairwell near Foundation Hall. 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. Students only interested in doing tech for theater productions don’t need to audition, and there will be more info on tech in the coming weeks. Email Andy Macdonald at with any questions.
