Available all night will be pizza, drinks, and other concession items in Gatlin Hall. There will also be games for students, performances by our Cheer Squad and the Mini-Cheerleaders, and a 5th grade dance performance. Remember the annual Free Throw and Hula Hoop contests are open to ALL who attend. We hope to see you there!
As a school, we envision that our students will be leaders one day in an increasingly global world. With that mission in mind, the Spanish Department at Corbett Prep is thrilled to coordinate another opportunity for this academic year to take classroom learning to real-life experiences. Please review the Spain Study Tour flyer for more information. We will be visiting our sister school in Madrid, Colegio Ramon y Cajal. This international experience is still one of the favorite memories of many of our IDS/Corbett Prep graduates!
Students across the Corbett Prep campus have been busy participating in Computer Science Education Week, a program that challenges students around the world to code for at least an hour. Technology teachers Mr. Matt Melnick and Ms. Madonna Davis have been busy stretching our students' abilities by completing months of coding through various platforms and in multiple coding languages.
Kindergarten through 5th grade use a platform called Code Monkey, a program written specifically to educate kids about computer science. As students navigate through various Code Monkey challenges, they learn computational thinking, programming concepts, problem-solving skills, sequencing, and write their own code using CoffeeScript.
Feeding Tampa Bay will feed thousands of families in need this holiday season, and Corbett Prep can help! Our Middle School Student Council Leadership is again partnering with Feeding Tampa Bay to organize our annual holiday food drive. The Middle School Student Council is sponsoring this drive and has set a schoolwide goal of collecting 1,000 pounds of food during the drive. We can easily reach this goal if we remember "Give a can, if you can!"
All students, PreK3 through 8th Grade are encouraged to bring canned or dry boxed foods item to school during the food drive. The drive will run from Monday, Dec. 16, through Friday, Dec. 20. Look for the white Feeding Tampa Bay boxes that will be set out throughout campus!
