Passport Check Day Is This Week

The Passport Club is a volunteer run geography program to help students learn the world’s countries, over the course of the school year. Each month, students are assigned to learn to locate several countries on the world map. On “Check Day”, around the end of each month, a group of parents volunteer to quiz the students.

The next Passport Check Day is this Friday, March 30, in the school commons. Students should study the itinerary on their March maps. Recheck is also available on that day.

If you’re interested in volunteering to check student itineraries, please sign up at

2nd grade will have their Passport Check on March 29, at 1:30pm. Parents interested to help with checking may write to passport@benrushpta.org. We really need volunteers!!
