The Compass Notes

Compass Elementary Parent Newsletter


Thanks for a great year and have a fantastic summer Compass family!

We want to thank all of our families for a great school year! Thank you for your patience, flexibility, and support as we have navigated an interesting school year. We look forward to the 21/22 school year and hopefully seeing things returning to a more normal pattern as pandemic processes begin to be less restrictive. We have been blessed to be able to celebrate many of our end of year activities and have some pictures to share this edition of the Compass Notes. Also be on the lookout in July as we will begin sharing information in preparation for the 21/22 school year.

Good luck at PCMS 5th Grade!!!

We have truly enjoyed all of the memories and experiences that we have had with our 5th graders during their time here at Compass! We wish them well as they move on to PCMS next year!


Due to the weather, our field day for this year was held on Monday, 5/24/21. We had terrific weather, and our students and staff had a memorable and enjoyable day of activities outside for this event. Thank Coach Gibson and Coach Smith for all of their time and effort in organizing a well planned and fun event for our building. Also, thank all of our staff for their support in helping to run the event so that our students had a great time. Lastly, thanks to our local law enforcement and fire department for coming out to take part in the day with us and spend time with our students and staff. (The kid's favorite activity, may have been getting sprayed with water from the fire truck! The firefighters' favorite activity was participating in the dunk tank!)
