Summer 2012 Update

Dear Compass Academy Parents and Students,

I would like to update you on the latest information as we prepare to open school in just a few weeks.

Schedules: High school students district-wide should be receiving their schedules at this time.  The Compass Academy schedule was dependent on a few pieces that required the other schools to have their schedules completed so that our master schedule could be finished.  Now that the others are done the finishing touches are being taken care of and I am told the master schedule will be available on PowerSchool next week.

Registration: We will hold registration for all students at Compass Academy on August 23rd from 1:00 PM to 6:30 PM and August 24th from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.  Please enter through the cafeteria doors on the east side of the building.  During registration parents and students will check general information, fill out health forms,  sign parent permission forms, pay fees and other typical registration needs.  Generally speaking all other information will be found on the school website at www.ifschools.org/ca.  Questions about schedules will be noted during registration and addressed during the first week of school.

Athletics and Activity Card: Any student who is participating in athletics will pay his/her athletic fee to the school where the student will be participating.  After school starts we will have pictures and activity cards.  Fees for activity cards ($25) can be paid at registration.  Students will receive a card that is for Compass Academy and the students zoned high school.  Compass Academy ID cards ($5) will also be available. 

Building updates: The building construction is coming along nicely.  The construction is taking place in 3 phases.  Phases 1 includes the area that we will occupy during the 2012-13 school year.  It will be completed in the next week to ten days.  We will be ready to start school on time.  During the year the rest of the building will be blocked off and renovations will continue.  We are excited to watch the progress.

In just a short time we will open the doors to a very exciting and new way of teaching and learning.  If there are any questions or concerns please feel free to contact Compass Academy at (208) 525-7720 or come to the school. 

School Supplies:

Once school starts, students should have the following supplies:
• Pencil and Pens
• Notebooks or tablets of paper for notes, brainstorming, etc.
• Highlighters in a few different colors
• OPTIONAL -- A USB flash drive, which is very helpful in a 1:1 environment, but not required.
(Remember, students at Compass Academy will be in a 1:1 environment so they won’t need as many school supplies because they will do much of their work on a mobile computing device.)
