WESTMINSTER, Vt. – Regular Thursday Night Bingo returns to Compass School again this year to continue the fundraising efforts of Compass School’s 11th grade class. Every year, Compass 11th graders participate together in an international trip to a Spanish speaking country in the developing world. Compass is committed to ensuring every student can go on this trip, regardless of family income. With over 50% of Compass students eligible for free and reduced lunch, fundraising is essential to ensure everyone can take part in this life-changing travel experience.
Compass School hosted Thursday Night Bingo throughout the school last year with great success – attracting good-sized crowds who consistently commented on how much they enjoyed the evening. The normal schedule for Bingo at Compass is once a month Thursday nights starting at 6 p.m. The general public is warmly invited to join in this event, with all bingo supplies available along with refreshments, baked goods, and a light meal for sale. Bingo cards will be sold per game, and cash prizes are awarded for every game.
The 11th graders are hoping Thursday Night Bingo will be a way to bring the wider community into the school for a fun, shared evening each month. Due to the upcoming holidays, bingo will be Oct. 24, Nov. 21, and Dec. 19. The other dates for bingo are Jan. 30, Feb. 27, March 26, April 23, May 28, and June 25. No bingo in July, but it starts back up the last Thursday of August. All proceeds of the evening benefit the Compass junior class Global Connections trip.
