The Compass Notes for Families
November 17, 2023
We hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, and upcoming Thanksgiving with your family & friends! We will not be sending a newsletter out next week due to the shortness of the week. Don't forget, Tuesday is the student's last day for that week. Wednesday- Friday all students and staff have off to celebrate Thanksgiving with their families!
Thank you for partnering with us, in your student's education!
Happy Thanksgiving to all our Compass students and parents within our community!

We believe that birthdays are an important time in a child’s life, and Compass students will receive a Birthday Book in celebration of their special day. However, for several reasons including increased food allergies, preservation of the instructional day, and student equality, students are not allowed to bring treats from home or a store or have flowers/balloons or other items delivered to the classroom for birthdays, going-away parties, or other personal events. If a student receives a delivery at school, the student will be notified to come to the office to view the item. Parents will be responsible for transporting the item home. Birthday party invitations may only be distributed if invitations are given to every student in the class.
