Attention Upper School students: TODAY, we will hold our first Cougars Talk session during lunch in room 610.  Come join us for some conversation about Patriotism in America since the attacks on 9/11. Bring your lunch and come on!

Dear Upper School Students,

As all of you know, Hurricane Harvey has caused horrific damage in Texas. Student Council has organized a fundraiser to contribute to Organization Compassion, a charity that sends semi-trucks full of goods and supplies out to Houston and the surrounding area for relief. Our goal is to raise $1,000 per grade and if your grade reaches the goal, you will be rewarded two dress down days. This fundraising campaign will run through September 22nd. Your grade representatives will come by your advisories to collect your donations. Please don’t hesitate to ask your student council representatives if you have any questions.

Our second Model UN meeting to prepare for CHARMUN will be TODAY, Monday 9/11 in Mrs. Shaefer’s room! We will have delegate assignments ready for you! There is also an online delegate registration form provided by CCDS that you MUST fill out TODAY! If you still plan to attend CHARMUN make sure you attend today!!!!!! Anyone who has turned in a permission slip and does not come to the meeting will need to see Mrs. Shaefer as soon as possible.

Ms. Mann will be holding a Lunch and Learn information session about the North Carolina Governor’s Honors program on Monday, Sept. 18.  Any interested JUNIORS should bring your lunch to the College Counseling Room, Room 610, and you’ll learn all about the different opportunities at Governor’s Honors, what test scores you must have to qualify to apply, and what is involved in the application process through Cannon School. If you have any questions before next Monday, feel free to email Ms. Mann.

Juniors: The line has been painted!  Park above it and you will have to serve a Community Restoration.  Seniors will be auctioning off spaces soon!
