On Thursday, October 8th, the Compass Community came together with the most incredible show of strength. Substitute teachers, parents and Ms. Brandee held down the fort at Compass so that teachers and staff could be present for a colleague in need.
Not only did everyone survive the day, we thrived. Our students were amazing. Parents were proud to help make the day possible. Many substitute teachers reported that it was their easiest sub day ever because there was so much support and the kids played their part as well.
One parent reflected:
“When I heard the news, one of my first thoughts was ‘what can I do? how can I best help?’ Pitching in at the community day today provided me with a way to do just that; by being at the school, along with the amazing logistics and planning that went along with it, we enabled Ms. Kat to be surrounded by her long time friends. So congratulations to all on the success of a major undertaking.
