Hello Findley Families,
Can your students identify the United States of America or the Pacific Ocean on a world map?  As Findley develops its students into globally-minded citizens, Passport Club wants to do its part by helping students locate their position in the world.
Passport Club is a volunteer-run geography enrichment program offered at Findley to 2nd – 5th grades. This is an optional program and is not mandatory.
  • Each child receives a passport, normally kept at school.
  • During monthly quizzes, your student collects stamps as they learn to identify world locations on the map.
  • Your student’s study map, indicating the countries or geographic landmarks, will be distributed at the beginning of each month. Maps were sent home in last week’s homework folders.
  • Please practice with your child for several minutes a day to help them get ready!
  • Passport Club quizzing is once a month (Wednesdays), and takes place in the school cafeteria. Rechecking takes 2 days later on Friday.
