Cannon School hosts event for middle-schoolers

CONCORD — A middle school student is a work in progress. A child’s growing need for independence, coupled with his or her still-developing sense of self-confidence can mean a potentially tumultuous time for children and parents alike.
Charlotte area parents and their rising fifth- through eighth-grade children are invited to learn more about how the distinct developmental needs of middle school students are given careful consideration at Cannon School. “Exploring Middle School” will take place Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 11:30 a.m. on Cannon’s campus at 5801 Poplar Tent Road.
Students will enjoy a pizza lunch with current Cannon middle school students. Interested parents and students will meet with Head of Middle School Dr. Matthew Rush and the middle school deans, guidance counselor and director of academic technology.
Parents are encouraged to pre-register at www.cannonschool.org/openhouse.
“This event will introduce parents and students to how Cannon’s middle school program is an exciting opportunity for children,” explains Rush. “By including fifth grade in the middle school as an important transition year and carefully considering the many factors that come into play in the world of preadolescents, our middle school community strives to balance the unique developmental needs of our students that run the gamut from intellectual, to physical, to emotional and social.”
