Anna Dula demonstrated KINDNESS by inviting Cannon students to a Girl Scouts virtual meeting. Way to keep students connected AND serve the community, Anna!

Caroline Mills is showing COURAGE by going out of her comfort zone to try new hobbies (yes, that’s plural: hobbies) during this time of shelter in place. Kudos to her for experimenting!

Giselle Rashid is showing PASSION by writing short stories in her free time. Anyone who hasn’t read Giselle’s writing–and you can read her story “Darkness Breaking” on page 28 of “The Ink”–keep your eyes open. She is definitely going to be a famous author someday.

****Honor Sword Recipients

For over 10 years, our Honor Council has been celebrating our students who live a life of honor with a ceremony unique to Cannon, called the Sword Ceremony.  In the past, we’ve invited parents of sword recipients and assembled in a community meeting.  Members of the Honor Council shared their thoughts on the individuals that we were recognizing and celebrating.  As often as we could, we surprised the students.  Due to our quarantine situation, the Honor Council elected to conduct a virtual ceremony.  The Honor Council thought that celebrating these inspiring young people was too important to pass by.  So, while this is not ideal, we wanted to share the thoughts and reasons for their recognition with you.

Please follow this link to see your celebration.

Cannon Spring Invitational Overwatch Tournament

What: During these unprecedented times, electronic gaming presents an opportunity to unite Cannon School students and give the Cannon community something to support and look forward to.

An eSports tournament hosted by Cannon and powered by LocalLive will stream eSports matches, providing students positive interaction with one another. Students will compete in 6v6 matches within Overwatch, Blizzard Entertainment’s award-winning team-based action game, and a flagship title within the global eSports scene. Players select from a roster of over 30 in-game characters known as “heroes,” each with unique strategies and play styles. Each team of six players must work to secure or defend various map-based objectives, using teamwork, strategy, and individual skill to outsmart and overpower the opposing team.

The tournament will be restricted to Upper School teams. We are planning to partner with LocalLive, who will stream and narrate the matches for an online audience. The Cannon Technology team would organize and run the tournament.

Where: Online

When: TBD (Potentially the weekend of May 16-17)

***MUG CAKE by Olivia Olson ’22

The recipe I use has almond flour (which most people don’t have in their houses), but there are a lot of recipes on the internet for almost any flavor imaginable. They are easy to make and clean up, are delicious, and don’t use any ingredients you don’t already have in your house. My go-to is an addition of cinnamon to this chocolate paleo mug cake recipe (gluten and dairy free):https://downshiftology.com/recipes/chocolate-mug-cake/

Cannon Spring Invitational Overwatch Tournament

What: During these unprecedented times, electronic gaming presents an opportunity to unite Cannon School students and give the Cannon community something to support and look forward to.

An eSports tournament hosted by Cannon and powered by LocalLive will stream eSports matches, providing students positive interaction with one another. Students will compete in 6v6 matches within Overwatch, Blizzard Entertainment’s award-winning team-based action game, and a flagship title within the global eSports scene. Players select from a roster of over 30 in-game characters known as “heroes,” each with unique strategies and play styles. Each team of six players must work to secure or defend various map-based objectives, using teamwork, strategy, and individual skill to outsmart and overpower the opposing team.

The tournament will be restricted to Upper School teams. We are planning to partner with LocalLive, who will stream and narrate the matches for an online audience. The Cannon Technology team would organize and run the tournament.

Where: Online

When: TBD (Potentially the weekend of May 16-17)

Students who are interested in playing Overwatch or any eSports please reach out to Mr. Tran at ttran@cannonschool.org
