Heads' Letter - Weekly & Archives
All summer reading assignments were sent home in Thursday folders at the end of the year. Please remind your children to have the reading and assignments completed prior to coming back to school on AUGUST 15! That first week is all about working with those assignments when they return!! If you need anything, including helping our students understand the importance of making the most of summer moments for learning, we are all here to help! The start of school will be full of reasons to celebrate learning and to dive in right from the beginning in the same way that every moment is key at the end of the year! Thank you, parents, for your partnership is helping our students/ your terrific kids be successful!
Corbett Prep's dress code is designed to support choices in unique ways within boundaries through color, style and fabric. Dress code expectations for Monday through Thursday are changing for the 2018-19 school year, allowing teachers to focus on teaching and building positive classroom environments rather than functioning as dress code monitors. Online ordering is coming soon!
If you are coming to CAMP IDS this summer, plan ahead! If you have prepaid for your camp sessions (or would like to), we invite you to stop by Corbett Prep between 2-5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 23, for our VIP Day! You can collect your packet of camp information. For each week paid IN FULL, you will receive a first-day wristband (allows you and your camper to go past the registration line on first day of camp each week).
If you have ALL your sessions paid IN FULL, you will receive a cool CAMP IDS swag bag! Swag bags are ONLY available on May 23. Whether you have a camper starting Week 1 or later in the summer, join us on May 23 and check this off your to-do list!
Corbett Prep's fifth grade class would like to inspire you and share their experiences abut how they chose to make the world a better place. The students must apply what they have learned as International Baccalaureate students during the Primary Years Programme (PYP) to complete in-depth projects that emphasize service learning and finding solutions to real-life issues. The fifth graders will share what they learned during the Exhibition projects during a performance on May 25 and audience members will be able to meet the students and learn more about the topics they researched.
Congratulations to all our Duke TIP participants! Many students qualify academically. Those honored at our April 30 assembly chose to go above and beyond by participating in Duke TIP by taking the High School Level College Entrance Test. These students gave a Saturday of their time to go to a local high school and sit for either the College SAT or the College ACT. This week, we officially recognized the students who participated in the 2018 Duke University Talent Identification Program's 7th Grade Talent Search. Nineteen students participated and five qualified for state recognition. The honorees earned this award by scoring approximately at or above the national average of recent high school graduates on at least one part of the ACT or the SAT. They are invited to a special recognition ceremony to be held at The University of South Florida and offered the option to attend a summer program at Duke University.
