•   Next Passport Pass-off is Thursday, September 28th. 


    • Help your child study. This week, your child should have received the map to study for the first Passport Pass Off.  Next week, we will be sending out a blank map for practice and a video showing what students and parents should expect from their first Passport Pass Off.  Here are a couple of great links to practice basic geography:  https://online.seterra.com/en and http://www.sheppardsoftware.com/Geography.htm
    • Understand your child’s expectations. Each grade level has expectations for Passport 2.0.  Their progress will be recorded on their interims.  Here are the grade level expectations:
      • Second Grade:  Through Level 2 each month
      • Third and Fourth Grades:  Through Level 3 each month
      • Fifth Grade:  Through Level 4 each month
    • Geography Club:  Students who pass all five levels of Passport each month will receive an invitation to join our school’s Geography Club.
    • Join our Passport 2.0 Volunteer Team. We need a large team of volunteers to help once a month from either 7:35am to 8:30am and from 2:00pm to 2:30pm.  Please visit our Signup Genius Link to time up for the time that best fits your schedule:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0e44adab28ab9-passport
