Passport Club at Cherry Crest

The Passport Club at Cherry Crest offers a multi-year introduction to world Geography. It starts gently, with just five countries a month for the youngest students and eventually builds to all countries by the fifth and final year. Students study the maps during each month at home and at a monthly Passport Checkpoint, show off their new knowledge to parent volunteers and earn stamps for their passports!

Please visit the Passport Club section of the PTSA website for more details.

In order to register your child for Passport Club for the current school year, please email passportclub@cherrycrest-ptsa.org with the name of your child, their grade and the name of their teacher.
