Esther Burlington showed TEAMWORK by leading advisory when Mrs. Coughlin unexpectedly disappeared into the internet void. By the time their advisor was able to rejoin the Coughlin Queens, it was clear they didn’t need her at all.

Ben Childress showed PASSION and COURAGE when he played two songs on his guitar for his fellow advisees.

Alicia Equan is demonstrating PASSION by starting and maintaining a garden, which she works on daily. She is also building a relationship with her sister by engaging her in the project and will be able to feed her family with the food she grows. Great work, Alicia!

Aidan Swartz has demonstrated PASSION and RESPECT by showing up for our advisory meetings at least 5 minutes early for the past two weeks.

***Cannon Spring Invitational Overwatch Tournament

What: During these unprecedented times, electronic gaming presents an opportunity to unite Cannon School students and give the Cannon community something to support and look forward to.

An eSports tournament hosted by Cannon and powered by LocalLive will stream eSports matches, providing students positive interaction with one another. Students will compete in 6v6 matches within Overwatch, Blizzard Entertainment’s award-winning team-based action game, and a flagship title within the global eSports scene. Players select from a roster of over 30 in-game characters known as “heroes,” each with unique strategies and play styles. Each team of six players must work to secure or defend various map-based objectives, using teamwork, strategy, and individual skill to outsmart and overpower the opposing team.

The tournament will be restricted to Upper School teams. We are planning to partner with LocalLive, who will stream and narrate the matches for an online audience. The Cannon Technology team would organize and run the tournament.

Where: Online

When: TBD (Potentially the weekend of May 16-17)

Students who are interested in playing Overwatch or any eSports please reach out to Mr. Tran at

***AP STUDENTS: Visit College Board’s Student Updates page if you would like to request mobile tools or connectivity for AP Exams. Technology requests must be made through the College Board form no later than  Thursday, April 23.  Please let Mrs. Kulp know ASAP if you have questions.
