The seventh grade trip to Wolfcreek pushes students to overcome their fears and learn to rely on one another as they spend a week in the woods with minimal supplies. ABC Action News visited Corbett Prep to capture the excitement when the students returned home.
Wednesday will be a "Great" and "Grand" Day! We are all looking forward to welcoming Grandparents and Grandfriends!
On Wed., Nov 27, the program begins promptly at 9:00 a.m. Grandparents and Grandfriends, please report to Gatlin Hall. Doors open at 8:05 a.m. Following the program, Grandparents and Grandfriends will visit the classrooms for a wonderful reception hosted by all Corbett Prep students, CAs, and parent volunteers. All students will have a chance to greet our guests, learn the protocol for being a host/hostess, and gain comfort and skill in meeting and greeting new people while spreading joy!
Thanks to one of our wonderful alumni parents, Jan Baskin, our 8th grade was the only middle school to ever be invited to a city summit like Connect and Propel led by Dr. David Cooperrider. Dr. Cooperrider is considered the world's leading expert on whole system change using a framework called Appreciative Inquiry.
For three days, our 8th graders interacted with around 600 leaders of all ages and experiences from the Tampa area at the Convention Center. Their speaking skills, confidence, poise and ability to comfortably interact with others received accolades by many, including our mayor. The summit was designed to create work groups of individuals from all sectors to work together to bring their hopes for Tampa's future into fruition and build a bright and exemplary future for the Tampa Bay area.
The Ultimate Warriors Volleyball Academy (UWVA) draws from international training techniques and strategies for youth volleyball in addition to Division I coaching philosophies. As part of the Community School for Sports (CSS), the volleyball academy is based at Corbett Prep but open to students from any school in the Tampa Bay area. It is modeled after CSS' popular Ultimate Warriors Basketball Academy and takes a positive approach to learning sports.
