Cannon's Upper School Winterm 2020 experience is scheduled for Monday, January 6 through Friday, January 10, 2020
. Winterm is an opportunity for our students and faculty to come together in a non-traditional learning environment, with on-campus and off-campus course offerings, as well as domestic and international travel experiences designed around a love of learning and a passion for knowledge without the pressures and constraints of grades and assessment.
Cannon's Upper School faculty and staff, as well as several special guests including members of our administration, alumni, and parents, have been working hard to create courses and experiences based upon their passions that will interest, engage and inspire our student body. Students are encouraged to sign up for courses that follow their own passions or explore courses that will challenge and stretch them in ways the formal curriculum cannot. Our experience has shown that Winterm creates an energy in the Cannon Upper School unmatched at any other time in the school calendar and lasts well into the spring semester!
Cannon issues credit for Winterm on all student transcripts. This will be a participation credit, a ¼ credit per year in Cannon’s Upper School, for satisfactory completion of the student’s Winterm experience. Students will need to be present for the entire Winterm experience to receive the credit. There will be no grade associated with the credit, and it will not be calculated into a student’s GPA.
New this year, morning classes will take place from 9:15 am – 11:15 am and afternoon classes from 12:15 pm -2:15 pm. All-day classes are from 9:15 am - 2:15 pm.
Students may still arrive a school at 8:05 am and leave at 3:00 pm. Registration for Winterm will take place online.
The online registration period for students will begin on Monday, November 11, 2019.
This process will be completed via a link sent to each student. Once a course is filled, it will disappear from possible course options. If a student registers before their designated time, their course selection will be deleted.
Registration for each grade level will open at 3:00 p.m.
according to the following dates:• November 11 – Senior registration begins • November 12 – Junior registration begins • November 13 – Sophomore registration begins • November 14– Freshman registration begins
