Happy New Year, Corbett Prep!
What a wonderful week we have had, welcoming back our students and starting the new year with a "WOW." Smiles were everywhere, and teachers and staff were so ready to continue the 2020-21 school year with enthusiasm for helping each student reach and exceed expectations.
REMINDERS: Key Dates
Monday, Jan. 18 – DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. NATIONAL HOLIDAY: On Jan. 18, we join America in celebrating the exemplary legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This holiday is always an excellent opportunity to have family discussions with our children about tolerance, holding tight to dreams that seek to make a difference, cherishing the importance of human rights, and valuing the U.S. gift of freedom for all. This day has also evolved into a national commitment to service.
Wednesday, Jan. 27 – NOON DISMISSAL: Teacher In-service and conference preparation, half-day for students. Extended Day is available for this half day.
Thursday, Jan. 28 & Friday, Jan. 29 – PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCES: Parents, be sure to check in with teachers to sign up for conferences. Our goal is always to reach 100% participation!
Monday, Feb. 1 – RE-ENROLLMENT CONTRACTS DUE for 2021-22: Re-enrollment information arrived last week by mail and email. If you need assistance, please call the Admissions Office at 813-961-3087. Thank you to all of our early birds who have already turned their contracts in to the Admissions Office. We hope you are enjoying the ease of our online re-enrollment.
