***Cannon School Students Spread (Project) JOY

In this time of uncertainty and isolation, Drake Griffith ’21 was certain of a few constants—one being that the senior citizen population, already isolated before the COVID-19 crisis, would struggle more than ever before to connect with others. That was how Drake felt about his own grandmother before she died this past April. “My Nana didn’t have a whole lot of company even before COVID-19. This pandemic made things so much worse for her” he said. “I wanted to do something to help other older adults who may be experiencing the same type of isolation and loneliness she felt.”

In his grandmother’s memory, Drake founded “Project Spread JOY” in April, JOY standing for “Joining Older Adults and Youth.”  The concept is simple—pair teen volunteers with older adults for conversation, camaraderie, and connection either through the mail (pen pal services) or by phone. With the partnership of seniors Reilly Kungl from Cannon and Harrison Powe from Lake Norman Charter, Project Spread JOY has had tremendous success in spreading JOY to, and making connections with, over 5,000 senior citizens in ten states through the efforts of its team of over 150 teen volunteers. Project Spread JOY has since incorporated as a non-profit company. To reach its ultimate goal of spreading JOY nationally, Project Spread JOY is looking for more teen volunteers who want to help spread JOY.

If you are interested in becoming part of the Project Spread JOY team, please visit spreadjoy.info.

Hi, I’m Deven and I am the president of the Upper school Robotics Team! If you are interested in robots, or coding, or learning about  the Robotics Team would like to invite you to the in-school interest meeting on Monday, September 21 during office hours in the MiLL.

Hello all my name is Josh Reid and I am an 11th Grader in Mr. West Advisory. As we are rapidly approaching the winter months, my goal is to donate as many winter coats as we can to the Eliada Foster Home. Eliada is a home to over 700 children and youth annually, as well as a 5-star child development center, Residential and Day mental health program and many other amazing resources. We need your help to provide these children with coats so they can enjoy all the activities a child should be able to enjoy without getting sick especially in times like these. All Coats in any kind of condition as long as usable will be acceptable. Flyers will be placed throughout the upper school and I will place a box in the upper school atrium (Area you pass after you walk up the stairs from the parking entrance to the upper school near the senior lounge) labeled coat drive and you can drop of coats until the 20th of October. Thank you for help everything is greatly appreciated.


Cannon School Students Spread (Project) JOY

In this time of uncertainty and isolation, Drake Griffith ’21 was certain of a few constants—one being that the senior citizen population, already isolated before the COVID-19 crisis, would struggle more than ever before to connect with others. That was how Drake felt about his own grandmother before she died this past April. “My Nana didn’t have a whole lot of company even before COVID-19. This pandemic made things so much worse for her” he said. “I wanted to do something to help other older adults who may be experiencing the same type of isolation and loneliness she felt.”

In his grandmother’s memory, Drake founded “Project Spread JOY” in April, JOY standing for “Joining Older Adults and Youth.”  The concept is simple—pair teen volunteers with older adults for conversation, camaraderie, and connection either through the mail (pen pal services) or by phone. With the partnership of seniors Reilly Kungl from Cannon and Harrison Powe from Lake Norman Charter, Project Spread JOY has had tremendous success in spreading JOY to, and making connections with, over 5,000 senior citizens in ten states through the efforts of its team of over 150 teen volunteers. Project Spread JOY has since incorporated as a non-profit company. To reach its ultimate goal of spreading JOY nationally, Project Spread JOY is looking for more teen volunteers who want to help spread JOY.

If you are interested in becoming part of the Project Spread JOY team, please visit spreadjoy.info.

The pre-order system will still be in place for those that choose to use it for fast, quick convenience. The open cafe sales, is to allow those students, that may have forgot to prepare-order, or didn’t pre-order but are hungry on that given day, or are just looking for a different option.

Just a couple of rules in place. Capacity will be at 15 people in cafe area, otherwise please stagger line to enter cafe by following the cougar stickers on the floor.  Cashier will be open, for day of purchase, please have your PIN number ready for cashier to enter for you.

***Hello all my name is Josh Reid and I am an 11th Grader in Mr. West Advisory. As we are rapidly approaching the winter months, my goal is to donate as many winter coats as we can to the Eliada Foster Home. Eliada is a home to over 700 children and youth annually, as well as a 5-star child development center, Residential and Day mental health program and many other amazing resources. We need your help to provide these children with coats so they can enjoy all the activities a child should be able to enjoy without getting sick especially in times like these. All Coats in any kind of condition as long as usable will be acceptable. Flyers will be placed throughout the upper school and I will place a box in the upper school atrium (Area you pass after you walk up the stairs from the parking entrance to the upper school near the senior lounge) labeled coat drive and you can drop of coats until the 20th of October. Thank you for help everything is greatly appreciated.

Cannon School Students Spread (Project) JOY

In this time of uncertainty and isolation, Drake Griffith ’21 was certain of a few constants—one being that the senior citizen population, already isolated before the COVID-19 crisis, would struggle more than ever before to connect with others. That was how Drake felt about his own grandmother before she died this past April. “My Nana didn’t have a whole lot of company even before COVID-19. This pandemic made things so much worse for her” he said. “I wanted to do something to help other older adults who may be experiencing the same type of isolation and loneliness she felt.”

In his grandmother’s memory, Drake founded “Project Spread JOY” in April, JOY standing for “Joining Older Adults and Youth.”  The concept is simple—pair teen volunteers with older adults for conversation, camaraderie, and connection either through the mail (pen pal services) or by phone. With the partnership of seniors Reilly Kungl from Cannon and Harrison Powe from Lake Norman Charter, Project Spread JOY has had tremendous success in spreading JOY to, and making connections with, over 5,000 senior citizens in ten states through the efforts of its team of over 150 teen volunteers. Project Spread JOY has since incorporated as a non-profit company. To reach its ultimate goal of spreading JOY nationally, Project Spread JOY is looking for more teen volunteers who want to help spread JOY.

Hi everyone!

If we haven’t met before, my name is Heidi Coppa and I started a film production club last year called Cannon Film Studios. We didn’t make anything, but I’m choosing to blame that on the pandemic. And now we are excited to get started on our first short film of the year!!

The concept- a short film made up entirely on the spot. The only plan is that I will hold auditions that will give me an idea of who is best to act in a film with this much improvisation, and then once it is cast we will coordinate a day when all of us will show up with some cameras and 2 props and we will start shooting! If you are interested in working behind the camera, your help will also be greatly appreciated as we would like to have 2 cameras operating as well as sound!

Of course, it will be mandatory to mask, sanitize, and maintain social distance because this is no covid party. Getting sick is unprofessional.

If you are interested in acting or operating equipment during the shoot, please email me at hcoppa@cannonschool.org !!

We are excited for a lot of fun, chaos, and exploration! I can’t wait for you to be a part of the process!
