As we reflect on the past year, it is always our hope that at Corbett Prep, our families know that we value every moment with every student. Our focus is to ensure that every child is visible, cared about, and challenged to embrace academic excellence moving forward to meet and exceed the individual's needs and levels. In addition, embedded in learning are opportunities and lessons designed to develop wisdom, mindfulness, self-reflection, and a lifelong learning mentality. We also want our students to experience the joy of giving to others and contributing to the greater community.
Corbett Prep 8th graders showcased their volunteerism and altruistic interests in the 2019 International Baccalaureate Community Service Project Expo held in the Grand Room Wednesday! The students began combining years of learning with IB expectations by asking themselves, "How can I make a difference?"
Through this process, our 8th graders came up with service projects with a purpose. This exploration brought awareness to the diverse needs for service locally, nationally and internationally, which ranged from reading to children at an orphanage in India to raising money for animal shelters.
The eighth-grade students began by considering the many ways they could make a difference in the world. Through the IB Community Project, students experienced the responsibility of completing a significant piece of work over an extended period of time and put their chosen subject into a global context
Corbett Prep Drama/Dance Teacher Julie Nelson traveled to New York in November to see one of her students appear on Broadway. A few months later, the fourth grader returned to Tampa with a surprise for his influential teacher.
