Bingo Volunteer SignUp

Thanks for visiting Compass’s bingo sign up. Bingo sessions are held at Slammers Bingo Hall (1878 S. Wadsworth Blvd, Lakewood, CO 80232). Volunteers are asked to be at Slammers by 2:15 to get everything set up for the 3:30 session.

If you are helping with a particular classroom or have no previous bingo experience, please sign up as  General Pickle Bar volunteer.

Did you know? The cashier, pickle boss, caller and manager shifts earn double hours AND can designate $50 to the classroom of their choice each time they work bingo? These positions do require at least one training session and we are ALWAYS looking for help in those areas. If you are interested, please sign up for one of the training slots and/or contact Mari Dark at 720-254-8807 or

The 2017 Festa was the most successful yet, raising a whopping $54,773! The clinker was a big hit with the kids (and parents… and staff)– they loved the ability to lock up their teachers and request bail. We may just have some future sherriffs on our hands.

Many thanks to all of our community members that attended the night of the event. A special thanks to all of our ranch hands that generously gave auction items, hooch, in-kind donations, and a sense of humor. We couldn’t have pulled it off without our Festa Committee members, led by Julie Mannina.

A big yahoo and hats off to our 15 event sponsors and 4 in-kind sponsors (check them out on the sponsorship page).

The paddle raise for Ms. Bridget didn’t leave a dry eye in the house.

Be sure to join us this year for the 2018 Old Westa Festa on April 7th.

Compass Parent Teacher Association works to build community and support Compass students and staff. Our PTSA sponsors events throughout the year and raises funds to address Compass needs. These funds are distributed as grants and may be anything from purchasing a greenhouse for student use to paying a veterinarian bill for a sick pig on the farm.
