Special Points of Interest:

National Honor Society "Fun Shop"
The NHS Spring Funshop that was scheduled for Tuesday, April 9, has been postponed until further notice.  There are not enough students registered to make it feasible at this time.  Thank you to those who were interested in attending.  NHS hopes to reschedule the Funshop at a future date when more interested students will be able to attend.

Camp Invention

Discounts for summer camps are being offered for registration by March 28th. See attached flyer.

Art Moms and/or Dads Needed

We are in need of one, two, or three volunteers to help coordinate the art program K-8th for next year.  Please contact Renee Jones at 921-5731 or email artmom@compasscharter.org.
ISAT Testing
When we return from spring break, our students in 3rd through 10th will start ISAT testing. It is important that your student be in attendance on their testing days. Please try to take care of doctors’ appointments, etc. during the break and avoid appointments for the remainder of April if at all possible.

In addition to being present for testing, students should have a good night’s sleep and eat a good breakfast and lunch on the day of their tests.

The stakes are higher than ever when it comes to performing well on the ISAT. New requirements are in place that requires all schools to provide intervention to students who do NOT perform at proficient. At Compass, the intervention courses are provided during the student’s elective period and/or specials class time. According to Statute, these classes can’t be offered during the core class time.

Additionally, the State has a new school rating system which is tied to student performance on the ISAT. The rating system is then tied to funding for school districts.

We don't want our students to stress about the test but it is important that they take their time and give it their BEST effort. Please communicate this with your child.
