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!

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!


Attention Freshmen and Sophomores, the Admission Office at Cannon needs you! We are excited to begin welcoming prospective students to spend the day on campus.   Hosts are needed to help ensure a great visit day.  Hosts are expected to take their visitor to classes, lunch, and clubs, introduce them to friends, and make them feel welcome at Cannon. Visitors will spend all or part of the day with the host.  If you’d like to host, please complete this survey

“The first step toward creating an improved future is developing the ability to envision it. Vision will ignite the fire of passion that fuels our commitment to do whatever it takes to achieve excellence. Only vision allows us to transform dreams of greatness into the reality of achievement through human action. Vision has no boundaries and knows no limits. Our vision is what we become in life.”

― Tony Dungy



Props to Noelle Rizzo for sharpening ALL the colored pencils once she was done with the assignment and others were still using them! So kind!

Courtney Nix, Sarah Leonard, Thomas Coffey, Tierney Finn, and Addie Krug all demonstrated KINDNESS towards their friend and classmate, Isa Bokas, when they attended an event she played on Friday night.
