Explore Weedon Island with Experiential Learning!
We are excited to launch our Corbett Prep-ConnectOcean series of Experiential Learning Family Events on Saturday, Sept. 18 at beautiful Weedon Island. We will be at the Weedon Island Preserve Cultural and Natural History Center from 9 a.m. to noon.
Registration is on the Parent Portal and is limited to 30 students (1st-8th grades). We kindly request that one parent attends with their child. Cost is $25 per student, free for parents.
Students will need to bring a water bottle (with water), snack, sunscreen, bug repellent, sturdy walking shoes, sunhat, binoculars, camera/phone for photos, and enthusiasm! Students will learn about the important role preserves play in protecting our environment.
Weedon Island provides valuable habitats for many kinds of animals including oysters, stingrays, and small sharks. The extensive mangroves protect nearby areas from flooding and coastal erosion through reducing storm surge. Students will also learn about the rich cultural heritage of the prehistoric "Weeden" people who lived in the area 1000-1800 years ago. We will also have a photo contest, a scavenger hunt, and other fun learning activities!
High Schools Meet with 8th Grade
Our eighth graders are in high demand! Private high schools in the Tampa Bay area are visiting the Middle School throughout this month to meet our students and talk to them about their programs. So far we have welcomed Academy of the Holy Names, Academy at the Lakes, Jesuit and Tampa Catholic. More schools are scheduled in the next two weeks!
One of the amazing benefits of a PreK3-8th grade school is that during their years at Corbett Prep, our students are able to develop leadership skills, explore many different opportunities and discover their passions. It's helpful to eighth graders to hear from different high schools so they can find the best fit for their next four years!

Class Fund Reminder
Wow! It's that time of year when your child's classroom starts to rely upon its Class Funds for upcoming events such as Halloween, Grandparents Day, and multiple events to come. Let's help each class by ensuring their funds are ready to go!
If you have yet to view your incidental invoice or make a payment, please log into the parent portal, and click on the button PAY 2021-22 TUITION & FAMILY INVOICES.
Our GOAL for each class is to have 100% participation if possible!
