After a successful run of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, these amazing young people are ready to produce their second show of the season.

Our fabulosos students have been celebrating this month to recognize many of the positive contributions that Hispanic individuals have made.
From PreK through 8th grade, our students explored and engaged in many activities. They decorated the campus and classrooms with colorful and beautiful flags and "papel picado." They researched Hispanic artists, athletes, Spanish speaking countries, and presented their findings in creative ways. Some students delighted their classmates with traditional food! As a culmination of this celebration, they reflected on the concept of heritage and its meaning.

Fifth graders this week explored the relationship between kinetic and potential energy by building paper roller coasters in the Tomlin Family Application Lab. To start the unit, students were introduced to the University of Colorado at Boulder's Phet Energy Park simulator where they virtually tested kinetic and potential energy. Now they have begun the process of building a paper roller coaster. After a small test, the class will attempt a bigger, longer and more complex coaster.
We are excited to launch our Corbett Prep-ConnectOcean series of Experiential Learning Family Events on Saturday, Sept. 18 at beautiful Weedon Island. We will be at the Weedon Island Preserve Cultural and Natural History Center from 9 a.m. to noon.
Registration is on the Parent Portal and is limited to 30 students (1st-8th grades). Weedon Island provides valuable habitats for many kinds of animals including oysters, stingrays, and small sharks. The extensive mangroves protect nearby areas from flooding and coastal erosion through reducing storm surge. The trip will also provide students with an opportunity to learn about the rich cultural heritage of the prehistoric "Weeden" people who lived in the area 1,000-1,800 years ago.
