Hello fellow cougars,
My name is Andrew Aldous. I’m a senior and I am hosting a book drive for my capstone. The book drive is to support my Eagle Project which were free community libraries at 3 public elementary schools.

I am in need of book donations for children 4-11 years old. The drive will be from March 25th to April 5th. There will be 3 donation bins setup and clearly marked around the school.  So clean out any old book shelves you have and I look forward to your support.

Hey everyone! I’m Angel Brown and for my Capstone, I am organizing a Spoken Word Showcase on Tuesday, March 26 in the CPAC at 7 pm. The cost of admission is $5 for Cannon students and for other guests, a donation of any amount. All the money raised will go to the World Literacy Foundation to buy books and provide tutoring and literacy resources for children in need all around the world. Please come out to see your talented classmates and a few of my friends perform for a cause.

“Maddie Johnson and Stephanie Grissom are looking for volunteers for their biorex project! Please only fill out the form if you can commit to all three dates:
We will only need the first ten minutes of your lunch! So please refrain from bringing food! If you show up, you will be taking a very short multiplication test in the testing center! All three days will be under different conditions (listening to different music selections)! There will be candy if you volunteer! We would really appreciate your help! Our goal is to have at least 15 volunteers!”
Thanks so much!
Stephanie Grissom and Maddie Johnson
