***Hello Upper School!
A new and exciting program is available to Cannon Students called Youth Peace and Action (YPA) which is an online leadership course centered around PEACE that equips young people to think deeply, become an adaptive problem solver, and advocates in their communities. Through videos, dialogues, and interactive activities you will learn how to become a certified peacebuilder, earn service hours, learn peace frameworks, learn how to solve social issues, and how to spark positive change in your community. 
If you are interested in learning more and enrolling in the program join the meeting on Tuesday, November 16th during lunch in the CUBE (College Counseling)! Food will be provided! Want to get started now? Enroll into the program by following the instructions in the attached flyer!

Ellery Biehler demonstrated KINDNESS when she volunteered to clean up a mess in the Commons. Thanks, Ellery!

Faith Carpenter, Thomas Coffey, and Sarah Leonard showed integrity in a class game when they stayed true to their word and attempted to benefit the whole group instead of just themselves.

Claudia Joyce showed teamwork when she led her advisory group in one of our Student Life sessions by sharing some questions and encouraging her peers to participate actively. Well done, Claudia!!!
