We are excited to begin our Chess Club at J. L. Elementary! GT students and any other students in 2nd - 4th grade with knowledge of the game may participate. Our first practice will be on TBA for students that have returned their permission slip.
The Chess Club will meet twice a week:
*Students MUST have a signed permission slip, and transportation to school.
*Parents MUST drop their child off at 7:30 in the back parking lot by the cafeteria since the front door is not unlocked until 7:45. Only buses are allowed in the back parking lot after 7:45, so it is critical to be on time.
Magnolia ISD has a district tournament at the end of the school year in May. Regular attendance and participation is required to attend the tournament. “Regular” is defined as 75% attendance. The cut-off date is usually 3 weeks before the tournament, so T-shirts can be ordered and received in time for the tournament. We can only bring 20 players to the tournament, so a campus elimination tournament may be necessary.
A permission slip will be sent home in Wednesday folders by the last week in September. Please fill out the permission slip and return it to school if your child would like to be a part of the Chess Club. If you have any questions about the Chess Club please contact me directly at 281-252-2500 at extension 2526.
