“If you worry too much about what might be, or what have been, you will ignore and overlook what is. Remember this. Worrying is a misuse of your vast present potential, and your incredible creative energy. So do your best to focus mindfully on what’s in front of you today.”-Marc and Angel Chernoff

***Need help with math? Everyone does. Lucky for you that every morning before school you can find the coolest teachers on campus ready, willing, and able to help you! At least two members of the Upper School Math Department will be in room 504 between 7:45 and 8:05, five days a week, answering homework questions, explaining concepts, and helping you solve all your problems…well, the math ones anyway. Your teacher isn’t there? Don’t worry! All math teachers can help with most levels of math. What a great opportunity to get to know a different teacher! For now, we won’t have Math Café during Office Hours or after school, so if before school doesn’t work for you, work with your teacher to set up an appointment or stop by the math office in room 500 next to the library, across from the elevator. We are here to help all students be successful!




Please help Hope and Catherine raise awareness for Alzheimer’s.

We are looking for two or three reliable folks to help in the Press Box during home JV and Varsity football games.  Ideally, you would only need to “work” for ½ of a game each week.  Your duties would be to help “spot” the plays, help collect and write announcements, and maybe even help with the scoreboard and announcing!  If you are interested in being a part of The Room With the View, please email Mr. Hoffman at  



Seniors, Juniors & Sophomores are invited to sign-up in SCOIR for visits with College Admission Representatives. Representatives have the option to visit Cannon School in-person or via Zoom.
