Hello, Pirate family!

Coffee & Conversation with Dr. Jay Harris, Superintendent at Compass
Compass Families! Our new Superintendent, Dr. Jay Harris, is inviting parents and community members to join us for "Coffee & Conversation" connections in our buildings, and will be visiting Compass on Friday, October 14 from 8:45-9:45am in our Compass Cafeteria! These informal events are designed to share our District goals and listen and learn from families to improve our overall educational experience for our students. We hope you can join!
Open Positions at PCR-3
The school year has started, but we still have some openings across our District, including bus drivers, custodians, paraprofessionals, and lunch monitors. If interested in joining our team, click here to apply! Specifically at Compass Elementary, we have openings for a Lunch Monitor and Custodian.
This is our third year implementing "Living Lockers"! This is where we hang a picture of your child up on his/her locker followed by a Power Word that describes them. Why do we do this? For self empowerment and a reminder of how amazing they are. The students always feel so proud to show off their words!
Please chat with your kiddo weekend and discuss what would be the perfect Power Word to describe your child! Next week we will be having those discussions in class and they will get the opportunity to pick their Power Word for the year! Below is a list of different Power Words that you can look at and discuss with your child! CLICK HERE to join in with your family as Dr. Archer reads the book One Word for Kids!
