We have two Admissions Open Houses coming up this fall! Thank you ahead of time for sharing the gift of a Corbett Prep education with your friends and family by informing them of these upcoming dates.
The Open Houses will start at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15, and Thursday, Nov. 14 in the Grand Room. Please remember that if you have friends whom you would like us to contact, reach out to Maribel Garrett, Director of Admissions, and/or Dawn Bronson, Admissions Assistant, at (813) 961-3087. They will be sure to personally invite them to the Open House or to visit Corbett Prep for a personal tour!
We also will be conducting the first face-to-face training for the Four Pillars of Wellbeing, which began with Corbett Prep as the pilot school with Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence. It has now evolved into a nonprofit called The Contentment Foundation. There will be educators coming for the training, along with the head of The Contentment Foundation and other leaders on their team, through Wednesday.
Corbett Prep, thank you for your generosity! So many of you have already given donations for the Bahamas. After the catastrophic hurricane, two Corbett Prep parents made contact with a group of retired Air Force pilots who have clearance to fly the most-needed items to the Bahamas to get to where they are most needed. They have already had a couple of pickups from the front office. You can join in this effort by dropping off the items listed in the East Side main office.
The PFA's annual Fall Festival is coming up on Sept. 27 with fun and free activities for the whole family! Enjoy a synthetic skating rink, a rock-climbing wall, bounce house, face painting, a bubble show and much more! There is only a cost for meal purchases, and you can save money if you buy in advance online. The event starts at 5 p.m. on the East Side of campus.
