Jumping for Joy

This week, Jump Rope for Heart concludes with a whole day of fun on Friday, March 2nd, when we will celebrate just how much we have been able to help the American Heart Association. Throughout the day, students will be using their specials time to take part in an all-out jump rope extravaganza! Parents are invited to attend or participate, and both long and short ropes will be available for sharing in the fun activities.
 
Muffins with Moms is also this week, taking place on the same morning as Cannan's big Jump Rope for Heart day of fun. Mothers and significant mother figures are all invited to join in on a special breakfast with their students to kick off a wonderful Friday at 9 AM! We look forward to seeing you there.
 
Cannan also kicked off its Pennies for Patients collections on Monday, with the students viewing a presentation on the program itself and how they can help the fight against cancer and other illnesses. The class that contributes the most will win a pizza party, so spare some change to make a change in others' lives!
 
Finally, Cat in the Hat Week/Read Across America is next week. Students will be able to enter their name along with their favorite Dr. Seuss book at the library from Monday through Thursday, and at the end of each day we will have a drawing with prizes before dismissal. Pennies for Patients will have dress-up days for most of the week, and Thursday will be "crazy" Cat in the Hat Day with our hats and socks. Please look forward to even more learning and fun to be had by our Cannan Wildkats!
