Principal's Message

  • Dr. Michael Camp

    Dear Compass Families, 

    Welcome to Compass, an active community of learning. We look forward to working with you and your child. You are most welcome to become involved in your child’s daily events at school. It is the goal of our staff to ensure that your child feels safe at school and for them to experience every opportunity to achieve success daily.


    Your positive attitude about learning and the encouragement you provide your child will be an important factor in your child’s success. The grade level expectations have changed over the years. Students today are offered numerous opportunities to assist them in becoming problem solvers. Testing for mastery of the objectives takes place regularly in the classroom through student projects, teacher made tests, district Benchmarks and Scrimmages, reading assessments, and teacher observations. Students are given many opportunities to demonstrate what they are learning by making individual and group presentations, through illustrations and graphic organizers, and through written expression.


    Our staff recognizes children learn at their own pace, and we provide every opportunity for children to succeed. We have a professional, highly trained staff willingly available to be your partner in education. Please take time to meet your child’s teacher and the staff that will be working with your child. You are invited and encouraged to join PTA, become a classroom volunteer or volunteer in other aspects of our school community. We want to be your partner in assisting your child in reaching their full potential in academics and in social and character development.


    Compass office hours are 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Please do not hesitate to call us at 816-316-7750.


    Most Sincerely,

    Dr. Mike Camp, Ed.D.
