CAREER SPEAKER SERIES

We will once again be offering our Speaker Series each Wednesday via Zoom to help students explore college and career options. If your student is interested in a career in writing or publishing, encourage them to sign up for this week's career speaker session. Students who attend at least three sessions and complete the related write-ups have the opportunity to meet one of the competencies for Career Exploration, a course for which they may receive a .5 elective credit.

CITY OF ST. CHARLES JOB SHADOWING PROGRAM - AN OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN ABOUT CAREERS OF INTEREST AND EARN CREDIT

Several Compass Academy students have already begun participating in job shadowing through this program, but we are hoping that even more students will participate in this fantastic opportunity throughout the year. In the city's career pathway job shadow program, Compass students can shadow people in many career fields, including engineering, communications, accounting, firefighting, government, law enforcement, construction, forestry, water management, and vehicle maintenance. Students who participate in job shadowing on Wednesdays, and then write reflections about their experiences, have the opportunity to earn credit for career exploration.


Interested students should print and complete the Registration Form and return it to Ms. Ohlson at Compass Academy. Students may also receive a paper copy of this form from Ms. Ohlson in her office.

SCHOOL PICTURE ORDERS

Compass Academy students had their pictures taken on August 11th. If you didn't send your student with an order form but are still interested in ordering pictures, you may order by following this link and creating an account. Once you create an account with your name and email address, you will receive a verification link through email and will then be able to view and order pictures. If your student missed picture day or if they would like a retake, picture retakes will be taken on Thursday, September 29th, from 12:45-2:15 pm. Students will be reminded of this date when it gets closer.
