Good Morning Chess Club Members,

If you have not already, please get your permission slip to me by Tuesday morning February 19th for our match at Oakman Elementary.

Have a great Valentine’s Day and Mid Winter Break.

Upcoming Tournaments

February 8, 2019


Dear Chess Club Parents and Members,


With all of the Snow Days and Breaks it has been hard to get all of our Chess Club information out to you in a timely matter. On Tuesday, February 12th we will be having our second tournament at Snow Elementary against Becker Elementary. We will begin at 4:00 and end around 5:00. Please make sure your child is wearing either a Snow Elementary shirt or a blue shirt if possible.

Secondly, attached is a field trip form for our third and final tournament. We will be traveling to Oakman Elementary on Tuesday, February 19th. Parents must provide transportation to this match. We will meet in the cafeteria at 3:40 and once riders and drivers are present we will leave for Oakman. Please have your child wear a Snow Elementary or blue shirt that day as well. The signed field trip form MUST be returned to me no later than Tuesday, February 12th.  This is so I can get an idea of how many of our players will be attending and who has transportation. If you are not driving your child, I need to know who will be taking them. If you are driving another child who is not a family member, you must have a background check from the school office. These background checks are good for three years.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.


Thank you again for allowing me to work with a great group of students.

Good Evening Chess Club Members and Parents,

I just wanted to let you all know, Tuesday, January 22nd is early dismissal so I am cancelling Chess Club.  I would like to make it up on Wednesday, January 23rd after school at 3:45 until 4:30 in the Cafeteria.   I understand that some members have other commitments and will not be able to join us.  So I hope to see as many as possible on Wednesday.

Also I wanted let everyone know we will still have practice on the Thursdays on the weeks we have our tournaments.

Thank you again for a great group of players.  Have a safe weekend.

Dear Chess Club Parents,

I hope everyone has a relaxing and fun Winter Break.  After our Winter Break, both groups will be meeting on Tuesdays and Thursdays to get ready for our upcoming Chess Club matches.  This year our School will be hosting each match so we will not be traveling to other schools to play.  I will try to get everyone in to play so be patient with me.  Our A team and B team will consist of our top twelve players.  Our A team will be the team who determines the win of matches.  Each group has been working hard over these past months but now we have to show everyone else how great Snow Elementary really is.

Here is our schedule and all family members are welcome to watch us play.  We will start at 4:00 and end at 5:00.  As always the matches will be held in the lunchroom.

February 8th (Thursday):  Geer Park verses Snow

February 13th (Tuesday):  Oakman verses Snow

February 27th (Tuesday):   Becker verses Snow

Please practice over the break.

Thank you for allowing me to work with a great group of Chess Players.
