PAC Meeting + Parent Ed

Join us tonight for our monthly Parent Action Council Business Meeting from 6:30-7:00p, followed by Parent Education Hour from 7:00-8:00p. Wendy Rose, Futures Counselor at Compass will get parents up to speed on the work our middle school and upper school students will be doing this year to explore their own futures.

Let’s Give Back

The community of Fort Collins and our Community Partners give to our school in very real and big ways. On Saturday, October 19 from 8:00a-noon, we have a chance to give back. We will be participating as a school group in Service Saturday! and lending a hand to seniors in our community with fall yard clean-up and basic home maintenance.
