Hello All!

Max and I are making a Business Club this year! We will cover topics from investment and stocks to crucial positions of a company. Every week we will invite specialist speakers to teach us about their area of expertise. 

At the end of the club year in March, we will host a mini “Shark Tank” with judges and prizes! Members will use what they have learned from the meetings and apply it to their products. 

Make sure to come sign up at the Club Fair next week!

If you have any questions email fchen@cannonschool.org
