Cannon School goes Hogwarts for Halloween, raises cancer research money

For Halloween, the upper school at Cannon divided its students into four houses a la "Harry Potter" -- House Animus, House Impetus, House Humanitas and House Integritas.

(The house names came from the school's core values: courage, passion, kindness and integrity.)

The houses competed in their own team-building games on Halloween and also raised money for the American Cancer Society for Cannon's annual event, Cannon Runs for Cancer Research.

Runners went through a 1.5 mile obstacle course Thursday, designed by Cannon's Relay for Life Club. In honor of Halloween, each house had students dress up as zombies along the course who tried to capture flags from runners.
