Heads' Letter - Weekly & Archives
As we reflect on the past year, it is always our hope that at Corbett Prep, our families know that we value every moment with every student. Our focus is to ensure that every child is visible, cared about, and challenged to embrace academic excellence moving forward to meet and exceed the individual's needs and levels. In addition, embedded in learning are opportunities and lessons designed to develop wisdom, mindfulness, self-reflection, and a lifelong learning mentality. We also want our students to experience the joy of giving to others and contributing to the greater community.
Corbett Prep 8th graders showcased their volunteerism and altruistic interests in the 2019 International Baccalaureate Community Service Project Expo held in the Grand Room Wednesday! The students began combining years of learning with IB expectations by asking themselves, "How can I make a difference?"
Through this process, our 8th graders came up with service projects with a purpose. This exploration brought awareness to the diverse needs for service locally, nationally and internationally, which ranged from reading to children at an orphanage in India to raising money for animal shelters.
The Fifth Grade Class would like to inspire YOU and share our experiences on how we chose to make the world a better place.
We cordially invite the Corbett Prep school community to Exhibition at 8:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. on Friday, May 24. Exhibition brings together everything students have learned in the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme.
We are busy researching worthy causes, writing action plans and learning the intricacies of advertisement. We are experiencing different ways to create awareness locally, nationally and internationally as we try to change the world in some way, shape or form.
May is always an exciting time for the Community School of the Arts. Please take a look at our upcoming programs and join us for an exciting and uplifting event or two or three – or all of them! We look forward to seeing you!
The CSA Summer Session is a wonderful time for new students to take up one of the arts and we always encourage our continuing students to move ahead by studying during the summer. Details will be available online next week. Please contact us with your questions.
Corbett Prep students and teachers are preparing for our annual Spring Fine Arts Week, May 6-10.
Our Spring Fine Arts Day concerts will be at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Thursday, May 9 in Gatlin Hall. We offer two performances so parents can choose to be part of the audience for either the morning or afternoon performance. The student art exhibit opens Monday in the Farish Center and runs through Friday, May 10. All students appear in the Fine Arts performance and all students are represented in the visual arts show. Parents, please plan enough time to tour the art exhibit after either of the performances.
