Cannon School’s Exchange Program with the Saint-Louis Institute in France

June 19, 2015

France

In June 2016, Cannon School students will have the opportunity to visit London, Paris, and La Rochelle, south of Normandy for two weeks. They will visit famous sites in London, take the Eurotrain under the English Channel tunnel, visit monuments and museums in Paris, and participate in a home stay at a private school in La Rochelle. WorldStrides will be handling the tour logistics and the Institute will host and entertain our students while visiting their campus. The theme of this visit will be the teaching of science in a European school. The cost is estimated at $4,500. For more information, please consult this itinerary overview.

Students from the Saint-Louis Institute are planning to visit Cannon School in March or April 2016. We will be looking for families to host French students for a week stay. Please contact Dr. Simard-Newman for any information on the trip or hosting a student. She will organize an informational meeting in the fall.

Students Perform at Taylor Glen Retirement Community

On May 12, Middle School choir teacher Lu Jones and members of the fifth- and sixth-grade choruses performed for the residents of Taylor Glen Retirement Community. Residents enjoyed folk tunes, show tunes, and pop songs. Cannon’s music department has been performing at Taylor Glen for the last three years, and we always enjoy our visits. They are a wonderful and appreciative audience.

Great Gardeners

Last Thursday, Amara Campanini ’25 and her two friends Andrew Peterson ’25 and Julia Schneider ’25 pitched in to help take care of Gay’s Reading Garden. They worked early in the morning to plant zinnias that will bloom all summer. These three students wanted to contribute to the community and put their green thumbs to use, and had a lot of fun. Next September they plan to come back and work on, as they said, “the whole garden!”
