Welcome to Lower School!

Greetings Lower School Community,

I am ecstatic to serve as the Head of Lower School at Cannon School. To this role, I bring my experience in working with curriculum and teachers from lower and middle school, my enthusiasm in partnering with parents, and my love for educating students.
As you continue to learn more about our school community, we believe you will find that what makes our Lower School a place where your child can grow is summarized in the words of Cannon’s mission statement:

Cannon School nurtures relationships at the heart of learning and engages the learner in a journey of growth.

In fact, I encourage you to test us by looking for how we can bring these hallmarks of the Lower School experience, and Cannon’s mission, to life for your family:

  1. My child will thrive at this school and be known at this school.
  2. My child will grow and mature and fulfill potential at this school.
  3. My child will develop emotionally and socially in a healthy environment at this school.
  4. My child will cultivate natural and developed talents at this school. Intellectual curiosity and a love of learning will be developed through in-class activities, co-curricular classes like science, music, library, art, Spanish, physical education, and technology and STEM experiences.

I hope there will be many opportunities for us to talk and learn from one another as we move through this year. I am honored and humbled to lead and learn from the Lower School community at Cannon School.
Regina Nixon
