Best of all, participation is free! Just wear your favorite Corbett Prep attire, bring bug spray, sunscreen, a snack, a lunch and a smile!

October is Annual Giving Month
The Corbett Prep Development Department would like to share a short reminder to families that October is Annual Giving Month here at Corbett Prep. We appreciate those of you who have supported this important program, and we would love for all of our families to be involved. As part of the Annual Giving initiative, our Board of Trustees will conduct a Phone-a-Thon later this month to connect directly with parents. Please remember the critical nature of this campaign is to fund the school's operating budget, helping pay for items ranging from faculty salaries and professional development to facilities' maintenance. You may make a gift by check or online. We'd also like to congratulate Ann and Byron Holloway, winners of our Early Bird raffle for Annual Giving! The Holloways won four tickets to a Tampa Bay Lightning game! The financial support raised through Annual Giving goes directly back to the classrooms so we can create a learning environment that challenges and inspires. If you have any questions about Annual Giving, please contact Mark Nouss or Lauren Davies at (813) 961-3087 or by email.

Share the Gift of a Corbett Prep Education
Admissions Open House: Oct. 11 at 8:30 a.m. We would love to meet other families like yours who embrace our mission and vision! Please invite your family and friends to join us for our first Admissions Open House of the year on Oct. 11. Corbett Prep experienced record enrollment this school year with wait lists across all grade levels. The sooner families start the admissions process, the more likely it is for them to secure a spot! Our open houses include a conversation about Corbett Prep's exciting educational approach, the unique benefits of a K-8th grade school, and an engaging tour of the campus and classrooms. If you know a family who would like to learn more about the Corbett Prep experience, have them reach out to our admissions team!
