“Living well is an art that can be developed: a love of life and ability to take great pleasure from small offerings and assurance that the world owes you nothing and that every gift is exactly that, a gift. ” ― Maya Angelou

Google Password Changes

Cannon School’s IT Department would like to remind students that Google should never prompt you to change your password. Student passwords sync together (Wi-Fi, Email, Google, PowerSchool), so any change must be handled through the Cannon School IT Department. If you are prompted to change your password by a popup that looks like Google, do not change it. You should bring your computer to the IT Department (Room 506) so they can help you.
