Letter to the Community

Hello Compass families,

We have very exciting news! Thanks to the tremendous participation from our school community (that’s YOU!) on Colorado Gives Day last week, we were automatically entered into a state-wide drawing…AND WE WON!!!!!

Compass Montessori Education Foundation (CMEF) was randomly drawn for the $15,000 GRAND PRIZE from the Colorado Gives Day Sponsor, First Bank!!!

You can watch the live drawing through this YouTube link.

This is a true testament to how coming together really can make a huge difference!

CMEF is partnering with Compass Administration to make some plans for how to support the school with this money. It’s been a challenging year, and this bonus to our budget is certainly welcomed with open arms! Since we have the most amazing school staff ever, we are hoping to offer some kind of treat for them in 2021, and add the rest to savings to help ensure a solid budget for next year.

What an amazing end to a tough semester – we hope this brings you joy. What a way to end 2020! Our teachers and staff feel so supported by our community, and they hope you feel it right back! THANK YOU!
