• iPads for the Summer

    Posted by Deborah Highfill at 6/2/2014

    Hello Cannon Parents!
    It’s hard to believe that our school year will be ending soon!  It has been a terrific year of learning at Cannon and we want to make sure our students have the opportunity to continue to engage in great learning experiences throughout the summer.
    We have designed a Summer Learning Calendar for our K-4 Cannon students that will provide them with information about how to participate in fun summer reading challenges, math practice, engineering and design challenges, and even brain-based physical fitness activities!  This calendar will also include FUN events that are going on right here in the Grapevine community throughout the summer that your family can participate in for FREE!! 
    Although it will be possible for all K-4 Cannon students to participate in our fun Summer Learning Calendaractivities, we are encouraging our students to complete the activities in a “digital way if possible.  As a result, we would like to allow all Cannon students that are planning to return to Cannon next year to keep their school-issued device throughout the summer. 
    ALL PARENTS MUST DO THE FOLLOWING SO THAT YOUR CHILD CAN KEEP THEIR iPAD THIS SUMMER:
    • Click on this link to let us know whether or not you give permission for your child to keep their iPad throughout the summer. 
     
    • All students who receive permission to keep their iPads during the summer will have the Summer Learning Calendar and any related apps downloaded on their iPad next week. Parent Information will also be sent home, so that you know how to help your child throughout the summer.
    • All students who do NOT receive permission to keep their iPad during the summer will receive a paper copy of the Summer Learning Calendar to bring home to share with parents next week and their iPad will be collected next week to be safely stored for the summer.
    We hope that you will allow your child to keep their iPad for the summer and take advantage of our Summer Learning Calendar Fun!! All students that participate and complete summer challenge requirements will be eligible for fun prizes and recognition when they return to school next year.  Help us keep YOUR  child engaged in learning…..in a FUN way, all summer long!​

  • Air Dry Clay!

    Posted by Deborah Highfill at 1/29/2013
    The students wanted me to post the link to where I buy clay. I use low fire clay that has to be hardened by firing it in a kiln BUT, this company also has AIR DRY CLAY!!!! It is only $15 for 25 pounds of it. That will last a long time! Enjoy!
