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 and leaders, Mr. Tim Mimbs (middle school) and Mrs. Madonna Davis (elementary), stretch our students' young minds by completing months of coding through various platforms and in multiple coding languages.
The International School Connection is working with Corbett Prep teachers throughout the 2018-19 school year to advance global learning, a project that supports and enriches the global learning features of the International Baccalaureate Program at Corbett Prep. The goal is for our students to become globally aware, knowledgeable, articulate, and comfortable with understanding that global connections and interactions are increasingly an integral part of our contemporary world. Corbett Prep faculty have the privilege to learn from this dedicated group of educators who are back together again to continue the ISC program. For a number of years, Corbett Prep hosted the International Summits for the ISC when they occurred in the United States.

Grandparents and Grandfriends Day is coming up on Nov. 21!
This day is for all students at Corbett Prep, with or without their own personal guests. Everyone prepares in music, dance, and their classrooms for weeks for this special performance and the guest visits to classrooms. This is a special opportunity for students to give service to others by their smiles, deeds, and community spirit. This is also a wonderful time to unite the generations with joy and appreciation for all!
