Know Your States Challenge

Yes, the annual Know Your States Challenge is just around the corner! 

Get ready to study by using the resources and sample tests available on our website   Any and all students are welcome to join in this enriching experience of knowing our country.  It’s a required test for all fifth graders, and it is a wonderful opportunity for kindergartners through fourth grade students to become well prepared while having fun with a variety of learning tools and games on how to learn where our states and capitals are in America.

This challenge will be offered during lunchtime in the Multipurpose Room (MPR) on the following Tuesdays:
February 3rd, 10th, and 17th of 2015.
Mark your calendars!

Kindergartners may have the test read to them by one of our parent volunteers.

Students who know where all 50 states are will be awarded a Know Your States Certificate and Pizza Party!  Those who pass the States Challenge during the first or second week will be given the chance to take the Know Your State Capitals Challenge.  Each student who earns a perfect score on this test will also receive a beautiful medal.

For more detailed information, and websites to help your child, please refer to the “Know Your States” page under PTA Programs.
