This week’s schedule: 

Anna Kinken was “caught” in an act of KINDNESS by a staff member who wanted to be sure to celebrate her. Anna stopped and turned around to open a door for two students whose hands were full and they couldn’t get to their key card. What a sweet young lady!

Ann Robertson helped a teacher move furniture across the first floor so that her classroom could be ready for larger classes! Thanks Ann for your KINDNESS. 


No Birthdays.

The Cannon School Model UN Team would like to announce our annual CougarMUN on April 17th from 9am-12pm in the Upper School building! CougarMUN is a fun, laid-back Model UN conference for Cannon students (8th through 12th) and faculty. No experience is needed and there is an option to work with a partner if you don’t feel comfortable working by yourself! We will announce the fun topic we will be covering soon! Because of the complexity, we will sadly not offer an online option, only in person. Masks are required and there will be social distancing. Faculty, we have several teachers every year participate, so don’t be shy! 


If interested, please respond to this google form by Sunday, April 11th: 


If you have any questions, please reach out to me at! We are so excited to see you all!


Thank you,

Jessi Dickerson
