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 ( 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”.
