Middle School Musical Theatre Presents: The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Three casts of 7th and 8th graders have treated audiences this week to the hilariously charming musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee!
This laugh-out-loud show follows students competing in a spelling bee with all the ups and downs that the contest brings. This play also features audience participation! YOU could win the Putnam County Spelling Bee!
There are two more opportunities to see the Bee! Join us at 5:30 p.m. April 15 and 16! The show will be performed outdoors at the Middle School in front of Dean Dining Hall. Seating will be socially distanced, and masks are required.
STEAM Symposium Spotlights Student Innovation
We are pleased to announce we will hold the fifth annual Corbett Prep STEAM Symposium at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 22 outside at the Middle School!
STEAM education refers to the areas of science, technology, engineering, art of design and mathematics.
At this event, 30 students from grades 3 to 8 will showcase STEAM-related projects they have researched and prepared to present.
Seating will be socially distant, and masks are required to attend the event.
Modeled after TED talks and the Middle School's annual Poetry Coffeehouse, the STEAM Symposium offers students the opportunity to practice public speaking while they demonstrate their excitement and creativity on topics of interest in the STEAM field. Students volunteer to participate and work with mentors to develop their ideas, gain feedback on research and determine how best to share their information.
The STEAM Symposium encourages students to become innovators and inquirers beyond the classroom in order to drive their love of learning.
