Heads' Letter - Weekly & Archives
Corbett Prep is celebrating literacy all next week in honor of Read Across America Week! We're having a Spirit Week with surprise guest readers for the entire school. Each day at 8:05 a.m., our elementary and Middle School classes will log on to a special Zoom link to enjoy a story from guest readers. Students are invited to bring a book connected to the theme of the day AND dress up to match that theme!
This weekend, 30 students from third to eighth grade are going above and beyond to participate in the Perennial Math Problem Solving Tournament! Perennial Math was created by an Alabama teacher specializing in gifted education to offer students more venues to showcase their talents through challenging problem-solving scenarios. We would like to take this opportunity to celebrate these students for living the Olympic mentality of the best getting better! Please wish all of our math competitors good luck!
Our Community School of the Arts (CSA) students used their creativity and teamwork to create a hilarious and entertaining virtual show that will be available to view Feb. 19 and 20.
The Show Must Go Online features two casts of our CSA students. Pay attention to the drama teacher as you will see our surprise guest actor who is a member of the Corbett Prep community. He is a surprise for the cast members too!
We have so much gratitude for our teachers for their commitment to professional development!
All of our teachers and members of our administrative team have enrolled in an intensive month-long International Baccalaureate training. Elementary teachers are collaborating in cohorts for PYP training (Primary Years Programme), and Middle School teachers work on MYP (Middle Years Programme) studies within their subject areas several hours a week. The teachers also work independently throughout the training.
School picture day will take place Tuesday, Feb. 2. We have protocols in place to ensure everyone stays safe. Our remote students are invited to come to campus for their pictures Tuesday or Thursday morning. Picture make-up day is Feb. 4.
These photos are important for our 2020-21 Yearbook as well as great memories for families.
