Today is MIX IT UP DAY! Mix it Up day was created in 2002 to “encourage students to break down social barriers by sitting and interacting with someone new for just one day.” Cannon will be celebrating by giving each upper school member a sticker in advisory. Around the school, students and teachers will have the same stickers, and everyone is encouraged to talk to people with the same sticker by trying to introduce themselves and/or sit with this group at lunch.

On Friday, Nov. 4 during lunch, stop by the table set up outside the lunchroom to meet with a representative from Oxbridge Academic Programs.

Stop by to pick up a brochure and learn more about this amazing summer study abroad opportunity.

Halloween is coming up quickly, and House Animus wants to make sure that our armed forces can get some treats too. The House is teaming up with Operation Gratitude in their Candy Buyback program  to collect any leftover candy you may have from Halloween (including chocolate, but no Pixy Stix please) and unused dental hygiene products. There will be collection boxes at the front and back entrances to the school  for everyone and one for teachers in the teacher workroom. All donations will be accepted until November 11 (Veterans Day). If you have any questions, please email (Animus Service Prefect) or (Animus Head Girl). Thank you for your support!!
