Meet the PFA
The Parent-Faculty Association (PFA) is a vibrant partner in the education of children at Corbett Prep. Parents at Corbett Prep are a significant part of the child’s learning experience both in and out of the classroom. The PFA includes all parents of current students and all members of the school's faculty and staff. The organization meets monthly.
Numerous opportunities are available for parents to volunteer in whatever way suits their schedules best. We welcome your help throughout the year to plan and organize events, assist in classroom communications and community building, attend meetings and participate in activities. At the beginning of the school year, we send out a PFA Volunteer Survey to find out the areas that interest our parents and their special skills.
An executive committee of parents oversees the PFA, and they organize standing committees for each year to meet different needs.
Annual PFA Events
The PFA hosts special fundraisers and "friend raisers" during the school year to build community and support our school. Here are some that you'll have as much fun organizing as you will attending!
- Golf Tournament and Fall Social
- Fall and Halloween Celebrations
- Grandparents' Day
- Field Day
- The Big Event
- Community Service Opportunities
- Teacher Appreciation Week
PFA in the Classroom
Our Classroom Ambassadors help teachers communicate with families, coordinate classroom volunteers and organize events such as holidays celebrations and cookouts.
We had a wonderful evening at the Big Event, Corbett Prep's annual adult-only "party with a purpose!" Hundreds of parents, sponsors and Corbett Prep friends came together on April 1 for the Corbett Royale, a casino-themed evening with food, drink, entertainment and an auction that raised money for Corbett Prep technology, transportation and classroom upgrades.
