Summer Video Message from Head of School Matt Gossage

June 27, 2014

Dear Cannon Families,

Thank you for an incredible year. We have accomplished so much together—buildings, programs, strategic plans—all of which focus on what we can do to make sure that our students are ready for the world they will inherit.

Before you move on from the 2013-2014 school year and begin what we hope is a relaxing and restorative summer, we encourage you to watch this short video to get a glimpse of the work we are doing this summer, what campus will look like when you return, and initiatives that will take place in the 2014-2015 school year.

Have a great summer!

Instructions for Visiting Cannon During Summer Construction

June 16, 2014


Dear Cannon Parents and Visitors,

Cannon School is bustling with construction, including the addition of a third lane for traffic and the beginnings of the Central Green, which will create one lawn that unifies Cannon’s campus and defines the entrances for the Snyder Building, the Middle School, the Upper School, and the Performing Arts Center.

Due to the construction listed above, if you plan to visit over the summer, you will be directed to park and enter the school at the Upper School main entrance (on the side of the building facing the athletic fields). Parents and visitors will be buzzed in by an attendant.

The Richard H. Snyder Building, Admission Office, Business Office, Lower School, Middle School, and Library will all remain open and accessible during summer construction on the Central Green.

Parents of children attending Camp Cannon will receive any necessary instructions from Marcia Brashear, Director of Enrichment Programs. Click here for Camp Cannon Drop-Off and Pick-Up Instructions.

Cannon parents will continue to receive updates on construction throughout the summer and leading up to the new school year.

Please contact Whit Brown, Director of Business and Finance, with questions.

Thank you for your cooperation!

Congratulations, Class of 2014!
