Cannon School opens new school year with increased enrollment


Cannon School’s 906 students met in Boswell Gymnasium this morning to kick off the new school year!

Head of School, Matt Gossage, and Student Council President, Michael Pope, welcomed everyone back — sharing a special hello and welcome to 10 new staff members, 17 new faculty, and 167 new students.

Mr. Gossage pointed out that many of the new students came from a number of other towns, states, countries, and continents, including:

  • Austria, Belgium, Canada, China,  France, Germany, South Korea, Texas, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Connecticut, Tennessee, Maine, New Jersey, and South Carolina

 Michael Pope challenged every Cannon student and teacher to reach out to someone new to the community and get to know him or her.  This challenge, he pointed out, fits with the Student Council’s theme for the year, “What’s Your Story?”
