This week’s schedule: 


Karon Boyd was a seriously awesome and KIND human being when he witnessed a teacher holding the door for a stream of students, and instead of going with the crowd, he insisted she go ahead of him and held the door for her.

Alicia Equan, Ben Childress, Kenlee Griffin, Kennedy Nemechek, Josie Thillet, Colin Bullard and Carter Rice demonstrated RESPECT, TEAMWORK, PASSION and KINDNESS when they spent time with Social Studies Teaching candidates and shared their valuable feedback. Thank you so much!

Olivia Neilsen, Madelena Cagnina, and Tierney Finn were KINDNESS personified when they brought a teacher Starbucks because they suspected she was having a bad day. Who does that?! Olivia, Madelena and Tierney–that’s who!

Hudson Davis showed TEAMWORK by helping move all the music gear from the CPAC back to classrooms after this weekend’s concert.

Jimmy Kinsella expressed KINDNESS by discovering and turning in a ring found in the MiLL. 

Max McDermott showed RESPECT by helping to right the class when some of his peers were off course.

***Hello! My name is Ashley Phelps and I am doing my capstone on Suicide Prevention and Awareness. Of course this is not a topic that is easy to talk about. In this short presentation I would like to show you warning signs and things you can do to support friends and loved ones who may be struggling with severe depression and/or suicide. We will discuss techniques from the CDC, IASP, and other accredited mental health organizations. In addition, we will go through a hypothetical scenario and discuss how we can help our main character: Seven.

Cannon Theater Company 2022 Musical Search

As always at this time of year, Cannon Theater Company is searching for the right musical to produce next year. Our first question is always – who’s interested and what are their singing strengths? To help us get a better sense of this, we (Mac, Mrs. Jones, Mr. Burlington) are asking for video submissions of you singing. These videos are NOT auditions, and they are not required in order to audition in the fall. They’re just an opportunity for you to be on our radar as we research which musicals could be good options for CTC. For more details, check out the email Mac ( sent you on Monday.
