Hey everyone!

 

You may have noticed the green flyers popping up around school with a list of possible volunteer opportunities; Since the beginning of the pandemic, there has been a massive decrease in relational volunteer work. As my capstone project, I will be hosting a conversation about  importance of these types of organizations, why they are worth getting involved in, and common misconceptions about members of the homeless community and the effect they have on mental health of people within it. Feel free to stop by Mrs. Ross’s room on Tuesday April 1st or join my zoom room during lunch if you would like to participate. THERE WILL BE COOKIES AND LEMONADE!!!! 

 

Hope to see you there,

***Message from Hannah Mierzwa and Ella Ruddy: 

Hey everyone! We are finishing our capstone this week to recognize girls’ sports teams each week during women’s history month.

 

This week’s team is girl’s lacrosse! This is a new team at Cannon, and the girls are proud that they have made varsity lacrosse a reality and it’s an experience they never thought would be possible, especially for the seniors this year. At their last game, Ella Kungl and Bella Edmondson each had 1 goal, and Wylie Neal had a 53% save percentage! 

 

Come support them at their game this Tuesday, March 30th at 5! We encourage everyone to try to come in person, but if you can’t make it, tune in with local live!

PALS Programs is a nonprofit organization creating inclusive camp experiences for people with and without Down syndrome. Programs are volunteer-led changing attitudes, transforming lives, and inspiring a world of belonging. This year, PALS Programs is fortunate to be in a pivotal position to host hybrid programs this Summer 2021 to serve our communities.

This summer, PALS is fortunate to be in a pivotal position to host a variety of in-person and virtual programs, and we need volunteers to help serve our community.

What will our summer programs look like in 2021? PALS is offering two options this summer:

  • In-person programswill take place over the course of one weekend (Saturday & Sunday), and will be on-site for two days of activities. There will not be a residential (overnight) component to these programs.
  • Virtual-only programs will be held over the course of one week, with 1-hour virtual events held each evening, plus two extended virtual Saturday gatherings.
  • Both summer program options are based on the proven PALS model: one-to-one pairings, team-based interactions, and activities and programming that accelerate friendships and inspire a world of belonging.

PALS North Carolina will take place on July 31st and August 1st in White Oak, NC. Participants will be on-site from 9am-5pm local time each day.

Volunteers do not need to have prior experience with Down syndrome or the disability community, and training is provided at the beginning of each program. Volunteers must be 15 or older to be eligible. PALS is committed to keeping all participants safe during all events, which will be fully outdoor with masking and social distancing requirements for all participants, as well as small cohort teams made up of no more than 10 individuals.  

PALS is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment for all participants with and without Down syndrome to create a world of belonging, where all people are valued for their unique perspectives and lived experiences. There are no costs associated with volunteering at PALS. 

PALS is hoping to engage with a wide range of individuals from a variety of backgrounds and lived experiences.  Please reach out to Rosemary Corcoran if you would like additional materials or information, or if you would like to chat further about partnering with PALS.

As my capstone project, I will be hosting a conversation about  importance of these types of organizations, why they are worth getting involved in, and common misconceptions about members of the homeless community and the effect they have on mental health of people within it. Feel free to stop by Mrs. Ross’s room on Tuesday April 1st or join my zoom room during lunch if you would like to participate. THERE WILL BE COOKIES AND LEMONADE!!!! 

 

Hope to see you there, 

Georgia McKay

This summer, PALS is fortunate to be in a pivotal position to host a variety of in-person and virtual programs, and we need volunteers to help serve our community.

What will our summer programs look like in 2021? PALS is offering two options this summer:

  • In-person programswill take place over the course of one weekend (Saturday & Sunday), and will be on-site for two days of activities. There will not be a residential (overnight) component to these programs.
  • Virtual-only programs will be held over the course of one week, with 1-hour virtual events held each evening, plus two extended virtual Saturday gatherings.
  • Bothsummer program options are based on the proven PALS model: one-to-one pairings, team-based interactions, and activities and programming that accelerate friendships and inspire a world of belonging.

PALS North Carolina will take place on July 31st and August 1st in White Oak, NC. Participants will be on-site from 9am-5pm local time each day.

Volunteers do not need to have prior experience with Down syndrome or the disability community, and training is provided at the beginning of each program. Volunteers must be 15 or older to be eligible. PALS is committed to keeping all participants safe during all events, which will be fully outdoor with masking and social distancing requirements for all participants, as well as small cohort teams made up of no more than 10 individuals.

Message from Hannah Mierzwa and Ella Ruddy: 

Hey everyone! We are continuing our capstone this week to recognize girls’ sports teams each week during women’s history month.

This week’s team is soccer! One member of the soccer team told us that a defining part of their team is the many traditions that have been carried across the years, including riddles, the team mascot Charles, and questionnaires, all of which has helped bring the team closer together and helped with their undefeated season last year! At their last game, Brooke Van Epps and Sarah Little each had 2 goals! Way to go soccer! 

In part of supporting their team, we want everyone to go watch their next game against Carmel Christian on Friday, March 26th at 7! We encourage everyone to try to come in person, since we are allowed to have fans now. However, if you can’t make it, tune in with local live! https://events.locallive.tv/school/cannonschool

Update from Flik:

 

One simple task, is all we are asking from US students as we continue to advance our options in the dining hall.  We are just asking that you sanitize your hands upon entering and again after exiting the dining hall.  

As you have seen, we have opened up A-La-Carte service of the daily menu as well as adding  an alternative menu option and pre-made gran and go salads.  We have also unlocked the drink beverage coolers and ice cream cooler for self serve. This is where sanitizing your hands becomes an important task.  Additionally, we offer a one-time use disposable glove for those that prefer not to touch a high traffic door handle.  

So SANITIZE! SANITIZE! SANITIZE!

Additionally, we are about 2 weeks away from opening a modified version of our deli

As always if you have any questions feel free to ask

Kindly

One year ago, we left for Spring Break and were unsure of if we would return to campus. Fast-forwarding to today, we have learned a lot about ourselves; what we value, what is comforting, frustrating, and even limiting.  

Join the IM FINE Club in the quad on Tuesday, 3/23 from 12:30pm-1:15pm to write down things you want to “LET GO” of from this past year and identify things you want to “LET IN” in as you move forward. Our rainy day location will move to the hallway outside of Foundation Hall.

Hey everyone! Hannah Mierzwa and I are seniors this year and have both been a part of several sports teams at Cannon. These teams usually don’t have a lot of spectators and we wanted to make them more well-known and watched. For our capstone, we will be highlighting a different girls’ team for each week of March!

This week is softball! One member of the softball team told us that the defining part of their team is their team culture, and how they make sure every member of the team feels valued and important. They have many outstanding players who contribute a lot to their games and team culture. At their last game, Gabby Polsky had 4 doubles and 4 runs and Brie Biddle had 2 RBIs! Way to go softball! 

In part of supporting their team, we want everyone to go watch their next game on Wednesday, March 10th at 4:30! Some fans can even be in person which is super exciting! However, if you can’t make it in-person or capacity is full, support them on Local Live as well!
