Cannon Theater Company is excited to present the first ever theater production to be performed in the Cannon Performing Arts Center! “Hay Fever” is a play about a hilariously dysfunctional family in 1920s London, and was performed to uproarious laughter this past weekend at the North Carolina Theater Conference. Our performances at Cannon will feature a few extra scenes and songs, as well as a brief presentation by sophomore Sara Serulneck on the playwright Noel Coward. Come join us next week Thurs Nov 13, Fri Nov 14, and Sat Nov 15 @ 7:00pm-8:30pm.

Highpoint Davis!

the service (fundraiser approval process) changes:

  1. Administrative Team Level – We will engage in up to two school-wide service projects each year (division heads will be the first point of contact if further projects are proposed).  We will call for proposals on May 1, and ask that they be turned in on June 1.  The administrative team will then spend retreat time (possibly) to decide which one(s) will be school wide.  The planning begins at that time and owners are designated.  This year’s school wide projects are as follows: the Student Hunger Drive (US & MS), Project Wrap-in (US, MS & LS), and the JDRF walk in the Spring.  These may change next year.
  2. Division initiatives in addition to the school-wide initiatives will be at the discretion of the Division Head, and if the Heads decide to join forces that is an option.
  3. Student-led initiatives (fundraisers, etc.) will remain in the division in which they are initiated, and other divisions will NOT be “solicited” for participation.
  4. Any project involving the raising of funds or materials, must be approved by the Division Head, the Director of Community Outreach in that division, and the Advancement office through a form available on the Community Outreach Haiku page.
  5. Publication of fundraising efforts will be done with a “click through” in the Cupola or other Push pages indicating that parents have an option to view these projects and get involved but only if they are interested.  This page will change based on current projects, summaries of concluded projects, etc.
  6. Celebration/Publication of service projects may take the form of the same “click through” page, or perhaps a feature in Cannon Magazine.
  7. Capstones/Cornerstones – MS and US Division Heads have encouraged minimal fundraising efforts, but this will be at the discretion of lead teachers.  Fundraising efforts should follow the same intra-Division policy as listed in items 2 and 3.  Solicitation or participation involving  other divisions might come from a Capstone Mentor or Cornerstone teacher.
