  • 3D Printing Pens

    Posted by Deborah Highfill at 2/3/2015
    This would be awesome for the Art/Design Studio here at Cannon! Help us win!

    Dr. Schroeder is sponsoring a Teacher's Grant Contest and giving five teachers in GCISD with $1,000 for their classrooms.

    I could use your help by having your child that attends Cannon to draw a picture or write a one page explanation about how having a class set of 3D Pens would benefit the students. (See video below)

    The pens allow students to illustrate – in 3D – concepts in math, history, science, art, design, and so much more giving them a tangible means to explore complex ideas.
    Please have your child turn them into me by February 5th. Make sure they have their name and grade on the back.

  • 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. 
    • 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!​
