We are in the midst of a unit about the history of the local area. Your child should be able to tell you all about “heritage” as well as the 3 main reasons people originally came to the Corbett area. We sent home a questionnaire and family tree for you to fill out with your child. Please return it Monday if you haven’t already.
We had a driving field trip around Corbett this week. The guide is a wonderful local historian named Chuck Rollins. We found out that Corbett used to be a collection of 11 schools (almost all of which burned down at some point). We also heard stories about “the olden days.” If you never have, please check out the 3 display cases in the Corbett Country Market that contain artifacts from our history.
Please remember to send kids with a water bottle, as we don’t have easy access to a drinking fountain!
