Cannon Cultures is a parent organization committed to cultural diversity and inclusion at Cannon School. The organization serves to help support students, parents, and teachers to help create cultural awareness and acceptance.

Our goal is to host a variety of educational and entertaining activities that help enhance the overall Cannon School experience. In doing so, we hope to provide resources to parents, students, and faculty at all levels. We hope to create healthy dialogue between different groups in the community to enhance the connections that are similar to all of us.

Please join us this year as we go through the "Celebrations of the World." Not only will we learn about each other, but we will continue to celebrate each other!

Thank you for your continued support.
