Corbett Prep first and second graders have learned both about economics and giving back to the community through two fundraisers this year. The students raised almost $3,000 for Heifer International and Big Cat Rescue. Teacher Ted Richter says it helps the students understand what it means to "pay it forward."

Students will enjoy a morning of storytelling, sharing and writing on Friday, April 28 as Corbett Prep welcomes three authors to campus. The writers will talk to students about their experiences and motivations. Afterward, students will divide into smaller groups with older students acting as buddies for younger ones.
