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."
Corbett Prep eighth grader Rishi Padmanabhan successfully made it through Round 2 of the preliminary rounds of the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.! We are so proud of how far he has come! His journey began earlier this year when he competed in the school spelling bee against more than 100 other students in grades 2-8.
Before they move up to middle school, Corbett Prep students take time to reflect on lessons they learned in the International Baccalaureate Programme and how they can use this knowledge from the IB perspective to give back to the community. Please join the fifth grade class on Friday at one of two performances of their Exhibition where they share what they have learned to inspire others.
