***Hi, my name is Olivia Harper. A few weeks ago, for my Capstone, I had a survey for people to fill out about what fun activities you might want to explore on your own. Thank you to those who filled it out! I have now used those responses to create my website as my final project. I would love it if you could click on the link and check it out. There is a page on there for suggestions/feedback and it would be great if you could tell me what you think. Thank you!


We are having a Stress Free Friday in the library this Friday.

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!
