Shout out to all students who participated in the  ” Model UN debate” that Cannon hosted on Friday.  Approximately 20 middle school students attended from Country Day and Latin.  The Upper School students assisted and help run the seminars.  Jackson and Osahan ran the debate portion and Jack and Hannah (along with the other students )ran the Model UN portion.




JUNIORS: Representatives from Herff Jones will be on campus TODAY to take class ring orders. Juniors interested in ordering a ring should bring their completed form to Foundation Hall during lunch. NOTE: Foundation Hall NOT the Private Dining Room as noted in the Agenda.


The weather is great and we long to be outside. While the new central lawn is inviting, we cannot play on it on a regular basis for now because the grass still needs to develop a stronger root system. Please know that we need to stay off the lawn until further notice. Spring will be beautiful on the lawn!
