Parents who want to help their children make smart choices online are invited to learn from the experts at two upcoming evening presentations at Corbett Prep.
The adults-only sessions will address the challenges of parenting in the digital age. On Feb. 20, attorney Lori Smith will share "The Parent's Playbook," discussing the top 10 mistakes kids make online. On March 27, parents will watch the documentary Screenagers and participate in a discussion with psychologist Dr. Wendy Rice.
Both sessions are appropriate for all parents, especially those with students in fifth through eighth grade. They will help adults learn more about social media, protecting children online, how screen time affects kids and more.

We are proud of our students for the warm welcome and friendship they are sharing with our visiting students from Beijing, Shanghai, and Nanjing. Our guests are being immersed in English in a safe and positive environment as they learn how we learn. We are pleased to welcome teachers, students and even another parent. Becoming globally aware and knowledgeable are key standards for success in the 21st century. We invite all families to an assembly at 8:30 a.m. Feb. 13 as Corbett Prep partners with the University of South Florida Confucius Institute for a special presentation for the Chinese New Year!
Corbett Prep Middle School students are gaining more than STEM knowledge as they set up the new aquaponics system on campus! It's a lesson in problem solving and creative thinking. The Tampa Bay Times visited Corbett Prep recently to learn more about aquaponics and how the program benefits students.
