After-School Activities Session II
We are excited to offer students the opportunity to participate in our wonderful After-School Activities (ASA) program.
With 15 available options, After-School Activities enrich the Corbett Prep experience by allowing students to go above and beyond. Students of all ages can enjoy favorite hobbies, explore new interests, and challenge themselves artistically and athletically.
After reviewing our protocols in place and our campus procedures, After-School Activities Session II will begin the week of Oct. 19. Each program will have safety protocols specific to each area to align with our Back-to-School Plan. All programming will be reviewed daily based on safety and is subject to change if the need arises.

Corbett Prep Honors Hispanic Heritage Month by Celebrating History, Culture, Traditions and Contributions
By the Spanish Team
Hispanic Heritage Month, observed from Sept. 15-Oct. 15, is an opportunity to honor people from more than 21 different nations around the world who share a related cultural heritage.
At Corbett Prep, we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with colorful representations that our students enjoy creating. From flags to banners, these decorations show Hispanic traditions and influence in creative and beautiful ways.
Kindergarten and Upper Primary Division learned about influential Hispanics who have given great contributions to humanity. The Intermediate Division gathered information about countries and locations where Spanish continues to be an official language. Middle School students presented a research project of well-known Hispanics who have contributed to society in many different fields.
It is a privilege for us to see our students demonstrating an appreciation for other cultures!
