Program Overview

The Passport Club program is run by PTSA volunteers, we train and test Red El students on their Geography knowledge. This is an optional program so it's not graded. It starts from 1st grade and goes up to 5th grade. The program builds on itself for each school year so that students can study about other countries.

We are using a Distance learning program this year, so please go through the following details about the program. We are going to start the passport check from September month maps. 

Every month Students have 5 levels to choose from, beginning with Level 1, and going up to the “Geo Whiz” Level 5. 1st graders study and are quizzed on level 1(about 5 countries)2nd graders are quizzed on level 1 to 2 . Similarly 5th graders study and are quizzed on level 1 to 5 (about 20 countries in a month). 2\3 and 4\5 Quest students get quizzed on level 1 to 5. Students can take the test according to their grade or can take a higher level test. It totally depends how much they can learn.

If they choose Level 1, students will learn 40 countries and the seven continents by the end of the school year. If they choose Level 5, they will learn about all of the world’s countries.

On Test Week

Once a month, Sept-May, we are going to put 5 different test links for every level (on the day mentioned in the above schedule) in the Hawkflash newsletter. Students can take the test in the following week after school hours. Students can take the test according to their grade or can take a higher level test, it totally depends how much they can learn.

A student must pass each level in order to move on to the next level. In other words, if a student chooses Level 5, He/she will first be tested on Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4 before He/she can be tested on Level 5. Students take a quiz and get points for every question answered ,at the end of the test students will be scored automatically and will receive instant feedback.

Students get a new study map every month with different countries for the next month and the process is repeated. Please subscribe for Hawkflash Newsletter as the study map links along with password and test links for passport club all are going to be posted in Hawkflash.
