Intermediate and Middle School students will have the opportunity to learn about the writing process and the power of imagination from two professional authors next month. Frank L. Cole, author of the popular Potion Masters series and several other titles, will speak to third and fourth graders on March 1. On March 11, third through sixth graders will hear from Karen Kane. Ms. Kane is the author of Charlie & Frog: A Mystery and a sign language interpreter. She will talk to students about deaf characters, the inspiration for her book and how a growth mindset leads to success.
Both authors will sign books for our students that have been pre-ordered. Parents are invited to join any of the presentations!
Corbett Prep welcomes seven Chinese students for our 2019 Winter Study Program this month. We are very proud of our students for the friendship they are sharing with our visiting students from Beijing. We are pleased to be able to give our students and teachers these kinds of experiences as part of their learning opportunities. Becoming globally aware and knowledgeable are key standards for success in the 21st Century.
We are truly grateful to our host families and students for their amazing generosity and excitement to share our American culture, while learning more about the Chinese culture. One teacher and seven students will be with us through Feb. 20.
