Gossage Cup

David Boisvert displayed COURAGE and INTEGRITY when he shared and interacted during a presentation by an Upper School Faculty Candidate.

Tucker Kelley exhibited PASSION when he made a teacher who is known to yawn at sports laugh out loud at his entertaining Super Bowl commentary. Back to you, Tucker Kelley…

Grace Kramer showed PASSION by practicing two hours daily for three weeks, filming herself doing routines for a week, then participating in a weekend of virtual try-outs to ultimately win one of three spots (out of 98 competitors!) on the Clemson Tigers Rally Cats, a feat rarely achieved by a freshman!

Courtney Phelps showed KINDNESS when she sent a thoughtful appreciation and thank you email to a teacher.

Alivia Calabrase demonstrated KINDNESS when she drove to personally deliver a surprise gift bag full of disinfecting wipes and cleaning supplies to Ms. Legra! She sure knows how to make her advisor feel loved during a quarantine. Thank you Alivia & Calabrase Family – Bennett and I are very thankful! ❤



No birthdays.

Cannon Spring Invitational Overwatch Tournament

What: During these unprecedented times, electronic gaming presents an opportunity to unite Cannon School students and give the Cannon community something to support and look forward to.

An eSports tournament hosted by Cannon and powered by LocalLive will stream eSports matches, providing students positive interaction with one another. Students will compete in 6v6 matches within Overwatch, Blizzard Entertainment’s award-winning team-based action game, and a flagship title within the global eSports scene. Players select from a roster of over 30 in-game characters known as “heroes,” each with unique strategies and play styles. Each team of six players must work to secure or defend various map-based objectives, using teamwork, strategy, and individual skill to outsmart and overpower the opposing team.

The tournament will be restricted to Upper School teams. We are planning to partner with LocalLive, who will stream and narrate the matches for an online audience. The Cannon Technology team would organize and run the tournament.

Where: Online

When: TBD (Potentially the weekend of May 16-17)

Students who are interested in playing Overwatch or any eSports please reach out to Mr. Tran at
