Growing with STEM in Fourth Grade
This Week in Fourth Grade
I hope everyone enjoyed a relaxing Spring Break and took some time to relax during their time off of school. As we come back to school for only a 4 day week (YAY!), scholars will be working hard to get ready for the fast approaching Writing STAAR test on March 29th. Our scholars have been working hard all year on their writing and have come a long way. We can't wait to see them show off what they know!

Help Us Help Cannon
In an effort to provide an opportunity to Cannon parents to help support Cannon, we are doing a Greenback Fundraiser. Your scholar will not come home with catalogs with cookie dough, wrapping paper, or candy, parents can make a one time donation directly to cannon. Funds raided will help support our growth as a school and curriculum materials/other resources for our scholars and teachers. And donating is super EASY. You can donate online, using a credit card (no fees involved!) or by cash/check. All checks should be made out to Cannon Elementary. Each donation is tax-deductible and a form will be provided on request.
Look for a donation flyer coming home with your scholar soon!
Or if you can't wait: Click here to make a donation ONLINE now! Select the button - Cannon- Growing the Future!!
