Food Drive Totals
As a school, we have collected approximately 3,700 food items to donate to families in our community.  Thank you Compass families for your donations!

Christmas Concert
Compass' annual Christmas concert will be held this year on December 14th at 7:00pm in NNU's Swayne Auditorium in Nampa.  $2.00 per person for admission will be collected to help pay for the event center rental, and additional donations will be greatly appreciated. Performing students will need to arrive no later than 6:30pm and be in festive performance clothes (boys - dress shirt, tie, and dress pants; girls - nice dress or skirt and blouse).  This is one of the most impressive and enjoyable events of the Compass school year!  All K-12 families are encouraged to attend, and to invite friends and extended family as well.  The performance is heart-warming and memorable every year, and you won't want to miss it!

Cafe Expectations
The elementary Compass Cafe expectations continue to align with our school's mission, vision, philosophy, and one school rule, "Feel free to do anything that doesn't cause a problem." Students are asked to refrain from talking while they have food in their mouths and are expected to use quiet voices while visiting as they would in a nice restaurant. These two prongs promote good manners and create a calm and healthy eating environment that is conducive to safety and clear communication between students, kitchen staff, and supervising administration. Students are encouraged to focus on eating their lunch while they are in the cafe so they have time to play around and release energy at recess. Compass expectations support practicing good cafe manners while maximizing both time for lunch and the opportunity for recess.
