The Compass School, Ashburn Virginia

We are a Reggio Emilia inspired early childhood school located in Ashburn, Virginia serving children aged 6 weeks through 12 years old. Through the Reggio Emilia-inspired approach, children are given the tools and support to steer through their own distinct paths of discovery.

Our project-based curriculum encourages children to be active participants in the learning process and to develop the skills needed to explore their ideas, interests, and questions in a meaningful way.

Happy snow day, Compass Families, from our snow angels to yours! There's nothing like a little bit of snow play to put a smile on our faces. This is a friendly reminder to be sure to send your child to school prepared with full winter gear (hats, gloves, snow bibs/pants, coats, etc) so we can get outside again tomorrow!

This month's school-wide provocation in our Atelier is the book Scribble Stones by Diane Alber! Scribble Stones is about a stone that is used as a paperweight, but it knows he/she has a bigger purpose. With the help of some scribble friends and creativity, the stone becomes a piece of art that brings happiness to others around the world.

We can't wait to see how our friends help bring such creativity and joy to their art!

Our Sound Stage (JK/K) friends enjoyed their holiday at the JK Community Farm today picking various vegetables; feeding, petting, and holding chickens; and identifying herbs before enjoying a picnic together!

The food grown at the JK Community Farm is picked by food pantry partners for immediate distribution. Harvests are picked up daily to ensure the food is reaching families as fresh as possible. We are so proud to be a part of this great cause, and thank you to the Macpherson family for inviting us!

Yesterday we celebrated the end of Intergenerational Month with our senior friends and neighbors at Waltonwood Ashburn. During an exchange of gifts, one of the thank you cards from our Sound Stage (JK/K) classroom inspired a resident to reply with drawing tips! I sense a budding pen pal relationship in our futures πŸ₯°

Thank you, Judy, for believing in our students!

Compass is an all-weather school! This means we go outside during rain, snow, or shine, as long as it's safe to do so. When we have really wet weather like this week, please remember to send your children with appropriate attire! This may include a rain jacket, rain boots, and extra clothes to change if they get muddy.

During our Conscious Discipline staff in-service training day yesterday, we also spoke about how our self-image affects our impact on our relationships and environment. As we learned, "The most important meeting in your life – the one with yourself. Making a self-portrait, to contemplate it, to describe it, to read and hear how beautiful you are. It opens a new quality of how you see, understand, integrate, and treat yourself. And, in consequence how you relate to others."

On a hot day, what's better than a citrus sensory bin? How refreshing! Our infants sure thought it was tasty.

Showing interest in shapes this month, our Nature Center friends arranged and glued together triangular and rectangular "useable" canvases of loose parts. Once dry, they enjoyed building on a base of Legos and math blocks today!

After harvesting lots of vegetables from our garden, our two year olds had fun tasting them today! While some loved them, others were not impressed, but it was so rewarding to eat what we grew with our own two hands.

A hot Monday makes a perfect day to introduce water play days at Compass this summer! Our infants loved splashing in the baby pools and water tables, and getting sprinkled on with the cool water from the hose was so refreshing.
