Homeschool Co-op

All the Extras


Lunchtime is a great way to build community and connect with other families that you may not see during the rest of the day.  

  • Families do not have to sit together during this time.
  • There is no lunch monitor so you will be responsible for enforcing the building expectations with your children, as well as cleaning up after them.  
  • Nursery is not offered during lunch.

Hot Lunch

  • Not wanting to pack lunches or run to the store every Monday?  No worries!  Hot lunch is available for purchase!  
  • Hot lunch menus will be posted at least one month in advance, and payments will need to be made in advance.  


Snacks and Drinks

Snacks and drinks are sold during lunchtime by the Leaders in Training (LIT) students.  

  • They are also available throughout the day, but only parents are allowed to make purchases outside of lunchtime, as there will be no one to take the money or make change.  

Coffee is also available free of charge for parents throughout the day.


All Compass Lunch Days 

This happens a few times a semester including the first day of Co-op.

  • All members of Compass will be required to attend lunch/recess.   
  • Half day only members must come early for this 
  • Full day members will not be able to leave to go get lunch.  These dates can be found on our calendar. 



We highly encourage all families to attend recess. This time will be used for large group activities, free time, board games, etc…

  • There are NO monitors during this time so you are responsible for your own children!!
  • Parents can take turns planning activities for the children if they would like.


Service Project Days 

At Compass, we have a focus on missions, and what better way to learn about missions than to get the children involved in serving others in different capacities? 

  • There will be 2-3 a semester. 
  • 2 on a Compass day and 1 on a non-Compass day.   
  • On these days, only morning classes meet (no elective classes, chapel, or hot lunch happen).   
  • After lunch, we will either stay at Compass for a service project or all meet at a different location.   
  • All families (whether full or half day) are required to attend at least 1 Monday service project per semester.   
  • Attending all of them is strongly encouraged since they are part of our overall Compass mission and values.   
  • Not attending any of them results as an absence.  Please see our absence policy. 



This is an opportunity for classes to display items they have made, pictures of the classes as they work, or perform for parents, grandparents, friends.
