    Dates

    If you are writing a formal document should you say:
    ON June 12, 2006, we took a test about grammar.
    OR
    June 12, 2006, we took a test about grammar.
    I know it seems insignificant, but what is truly the "correct" way?

    You can try: We took a grammar test on June 12. Or: On June 12, we took a grammar test. You could also use We had a grammar test on June 12.
