Compass Birthday Celebration


Compass has made 20 trips around the sun (20 years is a score). Whether you were here for just one or all 20 (ahem…Carrie, Nicole and Pat), we invite you to celebrate and help set the stage for at least 20 more.

Join some or all our birthday activities and help us raise $120,000 for the school.


December 1, 2018 – Photo Album

Contribute photos of your favorite Compass memories to our giant mural. Photos can be submitted online here through March 2019.  Commemorative prints of the mural will be available in spring.

December 4, 2018 – Group Gift

We are asking each student or family to pitch in $20 once or monthly to secure Compass’ financial future.

March 2, 2019 – Dancing

Join our first ever, all ages Dance-A-Thon. Assemble a team of pledge-seeking dancers and boogie the night away.

April 27, 2019 – Games

Family fun at Young Westa Festa, including Goat Poop Bingo, classroom art auctions and much more.

May 4, 2019 – Besta Birthday Festa

A blow-out celebration for all the adults who have passed through the halls of Compass as students, teachers, parents and friends.

“Thank you so much to all who worked so hard to make the 2017 Old Westa Festa such a great success! The Compass community really embraced the Old West theme and brought the fun while raising record funding for CMEF and our school. I am really looking forward to our next event in 2018!”  — Julie Mannina, Festa Chair
