A campus-wide community service project is an annual tradition at Cannon! We want ALL of our Cubs to be involved in giving back to our community. This year, our community service project was inspired by an artist who creates small "robots", called Botjoy. These are robots painted on the backs of dominoes, which are "programmed" to help someone in need. There are many types of bots, including Brave Bots, Joy Bots, Love Bots, and more! This artist, Gary Hirsch, paints these Bots and he donates them to children's hospitals, to offer comfort or courage for sick or grieving children OR he just leaves them in public locations for strangers to find. He encourages others to “steal” his idea and make their own....so that's EXACTLY what we did this year!
Our students made & presented bots to:
Kindergarten - Grapevine Fire/Police Dept - Brave Bots - for children who are afraid during crisis
1st grade - Cannon school community - Kindness Bots -for Cannon support staff (bus drivers, nutrition, custodial); Students who are enrolling/leaving
