Back to School Picnic

The Compass Charter school picnic is this Saturday, September 17th on school grounds from 5pm-7:30pm (grill closes at 6:30). Please pick up your pre-ordered wristbands at the check-in table. (Walk-ups will be accepted.) Important reminders: 1) Please bring folding chairs, there is a very limited amount of seating. 2) Overflow parking is available at the St. Alphonsus Medical Center at 10 Mile and Cherry Lane. You may drop off your family in Compass' east parking lot. 3) Enjoy yourself!

Sports Booster News
Mark your calendar now for the fall Compass athletics booster meeting on Friday, September 30 at 6:00 in the cafeteria. We will have a potato bar dinner followed by a presentation and the kickoff of our fall fundraising event. Boosters will provide potatoes and drinks. Each attending family is asked to bring a favorite potato topping—chili, cheese, sour cream, or your favorite creative way to make this a whopper! Contact Curt Goldgrabe at 921-8332 with any questions or Mr. Pinkerman at the school.

Compass Aviator sports passes are available for purchase at all home games. All home games this year are played at the Homecourt YMCA, 936 W. Taylor Avenue in Meridian, just off Franklin Road west of Meridian Road. Your booster club membership includes an all-sport pass for all home high school volleyball and basketball games and costs only $35. This pass gives you and your immediate family free admission to all home games (excluding post-season games). It’s a great deal, and a great way to support Aviator athletes. See the Compass high school website for volleyball and basketball schedules.

Coming Soon - Compass Athletic Dept. Spirit Packs - $20

Cinch Backpack, Long sleeved T-shirt & Water bottle all with the Aviator Athletic Dept. Logo. Watch for more info soon.

Lunch Menu Change

Due to a lack of volunteers on Mondays, there will no longer be two meal choices. This coming Monday is chicken nuggets. 

John Fearey Fund
Our 11th and 12th grade students have the opportunity to take College of Western Idaho classes for concurrent or dual credits (credits count for both high school graduation and college graduation). 

Some of our students struggle financially so we created a way to give financial assistance. It is called the John Fearey Fund. Students may apply for partial or full funding of their books and/or tuition. If you would like to contribute to this fund (non profit) we would gladly accept any amount you feel comfortable sending to us. Please make checks out to Compass Public Charter School-Fearey Fund. 

We thank you for any help you are able to give to our students who are pursuing a college graduation. 

Compass Spirit Wear 

It's time to order Compass spirit wear! There are t-shirts (short and long-sleeved) and sweatshirts (crew neck and hoodies) available in youth and adult sizes. All spirit wear is navy blue in color and has a white logo. The last day to order will be at the Back to School Picnic September 17th and the shirts will arrive approximately 2-3 weeks after the orders are submitted. Sample shirt sizes will be available at the picnic to help you make your order. Please make checks payable to Compass PFA and return your order to your child's teacher or it may be dropped off at the school office. For questions please contact the Compass PFA
