A big thank you to Janine Bonilla for leading this week’s YBG Diversity Pair & Share on Defying the Myths: Hispanics in the United States. She exemplified true COURAGE and PASSION, all while wearing a mask and navigating new technology. Way to go!!

Quentin Clarke showed PASSION for Cannon School by crushing it on a 6:30 ZOOM call with a prospective family.  Amazing work!

Miles Edmiston and Deven Dighe showed TEAMWORK when they helped set up technology for Dean Booker throughout the day.  Great job!


Mark your calendars for a Hannukah Lunch & Learn on Tuesday, December 8th.

Ms. Cabello’s Zoom Link is:

Come join Mrs. Miller and a very small group of students and adults on Thursdays for a short guided meditation at the end of Upper School lunch.  (15 minutes). You don’t have to have ever meditated before.

Many people find meditation helps them relax, focus better, and be more present to their lives. You can also join us via Zoom, and are welcome to keep your cameras off to have some space just to listen and not be on screen.
