The Cannon Upper School Paper (CUSP) is the independent voice of Cannon Upper School community. Our goal is to unbiasedly report about changes in news, sports, and life within the Cannon community. We also work to amplify the voices of students, teachers, and faculty within the community of pressing issues and opinions.
 
In this edition, take a deep dive into the Cannon community through a new faculty spotlight, updates on Cannon School’s football team, an overview of Club Fair, and solutions to the cafeteria crisis. If current events are more your style, learn about the implications of the summer of Supreme Court Cases, September’s Self-Improvement Month, and the top 8 films of this summer.

***Fall 2022 Driver Education Program (Virtual)

This year, Cannon School has contracted with a local company to offer a virtual driver education program during the fall semester. Classes and behind-the-wheel instruction will be provided by WatsOnWheels (https://www.watsonwheelsnc.com/). WatsOnWheels has agreed to offer Cannon students a discount and provide the course for $450 per student.  The classes will be held Monday, November 7th through Friday, November 18th from 4:00 – 7:00.

Students must be 14½ years of age when the classes begin to be eligible to register. To complete the class, students must have thirty hours of class time and six hours of behind-the-wheel instruction.  We hope to offer another class in the spring through WatsOnWheels, but we have yet to schedule specific dates. 

After the class portion is complete, the instructor will coordinate with students individually to complete the behind-the-wheel requirements during their school drop periods or after school hours.

The $450 fee is due on the first day of class and may be charged to the student’s Cannon School account or paid in the form of a check made out to “Watson Wheels LLC”.

To register for the fall driver education class, please complete this Google Form

Read on for information on the process, and scroll down to your category to see how to submit your work by September 30.

Students can submit up to three (3) creative pieces of varying genres/mediums.  Please include titles for all works. We’ve received a lot of “Untitled” selections, and encourage you to take this opportunity to be creative. Stick to appropriate topics and subject matter as we are a student-based magazine for a JrK-12 school.

POETRY — Submissions can be any length. Choose a pseudonym for your work, and include both it and your name on your submission. Print two copies of your submission and place in the English office Ink bin AND submit a copy via Google Drive to theink@cannonschool.org.

FICTION, ESSAY, and ALL PROSE — Submissions should not exceed 2,000 words in combined length. We accept fiction and nonfiction, including (but not limited to) essays, travel writing, short stories, flash fiction, and reviews. Excerpts from longer works are fair game, but please make that distinction clear during the submission process. Choose a pseudonym for your work, and include both it and your name on your submission. Print two copies of your submission and place in the English office Ink bin AND submit a copy via Google Drive to theink@cannonschool.org.

VISUAL ART —  We accept drawings, prints, illustrations, photography, paintings, graphic design/digital artwork, and multimedia. For each work, please make sure that all files are high resolution. At a minimum, images must be 300 dpi at 8.5” x 8.5” for 2550 x 2550 pixels. If you are unsure of how to scan your art, see Mr. Rogers. Please include any specifications, captions, and/or other information you would like to publish with the piece in your email body. Share your submission from Google Drive to theink@cannonschool.org.

OTHER — If none of the above categories quite fit your work, do not fear. To name a few examples, we are also interested in publishing musical scores, short plays, screenplays, and innovative creative work. Use your imagination! If you are interested in submitting in one of these pieces, please contact Mr. Rogers. 

The deadline for submissions is Friday, September 30.

If you have questions that aren’t answered here, please see one of the faculty advisors: Mrs. Coughlin (mcoughlin@cannonschool.org), Mr. Rogers (narogers@cannonschool.org), or Mr. Smith (rmsmith@cannonschool.org).
