Heads' Letter - Weekly & Archives
It is time for us to offer you again the choice between on-campus or off-campus learning at Corbett Prep. At this time, Corbett Prep will remain in Learning Scenario #3 - Hybrid Community Learning through the remainder of 2020. This new learning period designation will be extended from Monday, Oct. 5 and last through Friday, Dec. 18. The extended time frame will allow our teachers and students to gain rhythm and consistency through the end of the calendar year.
Our first PFA General Meeting will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 16 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. via Zoom. We are excited to see new and returning faces and will introduce you to our Executive Committee members. Stay tuned for the Zoom link at the beginning of next week.
It's time to launch the 2020-21 Corbett Prep Odyssey of the Mind season!
Odyssey of the Mind (OM) is a creative problem-solving competition where students from all over the world form small school-based teams to solve complex multi-dimensional "problems" through collaboration. Corbett Prep teams may include students in grades 1 through 8, and students can participate from both in-person and virtual platforms. Please join our program coordinators for an informational session about Corbett Prep OM on Tuesday, Sept. 8, at 6:30 p.m. via Zoom.
Corbett Prep's academic strengths and its passionate community of teachers, parents, students and alumni have helped us win the designation of "Best Private School" for the second year in a row.
The Tampa Bay Times published results of its "Best of the Best" readers' poll on Aug. 23. Corbett Prep was honored in two categories for 2020: Gold (Best Private Elementary/Middle School) and Bronze (Best Preschool). Thank you to everyone who showed Corbett Prep spirit by voting!
All of our Board of Trustees, administration, teachers, and staff are forever grateful for the partnership we created to use remote learning to come into your homes for over two months. Connecting with your children from PreK3 through 8th grade was enormously inspiring and quite an amazing accomplishment.
