Passport Check Day Is This Friday

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 parent volunteers to quiz the students.

Our Passport Check Day is on January 24th, in the school commons. Students should study the itinerary on their January maps.

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

Math Games Volunteers Needed

Volunteers are needed to help make math games for students! The goal is to send math games home with every student, so they can practice skills they have learned at school in a fun way. You do not need to be an approved volunteer to help as you will not be working directly with students.

Date: Wednesday, January 29
Time: 9:45-10:45

Need a ride? Buses will pick up and drop off at the Onyx and Eaves bus stops.
