2017-18 Calendar

Full Day Kindergarten
See attached administrative letter regarding changes in the Kindergarten schedule for both this year and next year.

Elementary Traffic Pattern
Please be considerate to our neighboring homeowners when dropping off and picking up students from school. Make sure not to block driveways or cause safety issues by parking in unauthorized areas or blocking traffic around subdivision entrances. It is important to Compass that our neighbors know we respect them and value them as part of our shared community.

Nutrition Tip
Did you know that the recommended amount of sodium for children between the ages of
9-13 is 2,200 mg per day?  The recommended amount of sodium for ages 14-18 is 2,300 mg per day. Prepackaged foods are notorious for containing large amounts of sodium.  For example a single cup of Maruchan chicken flavored ramen noodles contains 1,190 mg of sodium. Although most pasta is low in sodium, it’s the sauce that’s the shocker.  One cup of spaghetti sauce can contain 1,000 mg.  A suggestion: Keep a close eye on those food labels when you are shopping and try to eat fresh as often as possible.

Fitness Tip
February is American Heart Month. Make one change for the better. To improve overall cardiovascular health, we suggest at least 150 minutes per week of moderate exercise.

Boys Basketball Games
Home games are Feb. 2, 7, 10. Feb. 3 is at Idaho City.  Feb. 10 is Sr. Night, come out and support our seniors at their last home game.
