Come join the TSD Chess Club! We gather on most Mondays from 3:20 – 4:00 at TIS in the computer lab (TIS 212). Chess Club runs January 8th through April 2nd 2018
January 8, 15 & 29
February 5, 12 & 26
March 5, 12, 19 & 26
The TSD Chess Club welcomes ALL (K-12) students of every ability level, from the complete beginner to accomplished grandmasters. Everyone will learn new tactics, new strategies and will have FUN!
The yearly membership fee for Chess Club is $10 (scholarships available). This small fee will help enables us to purchase new materials and trophies.
You MUST have a permission slip form signed by a parent in order to join. Drop-in’s are welcome. Also, I understand that you may be involved in other after school activities. So you do not have to attend every Club meeting. The days you attend should be arranged between you and your parent. Students should know in advance whether they are walking home or if you are picking them up.
You are encouraged to bring snacks to the Chess Club.
Please contact me if you have any questions or comments.
We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.
That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 4th-8th). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. Our Hour of Code is a statement that Telluride Intermediate School is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills.
During today’s Wired Wednesday we will have an open session. No agenda, just time to work on practicing using instructional technology or learning from each other.
Ideas for coming:
– Explore applications that help you enhance teaching/learning strategies
– Set up and explore Schoology gradebook
– Set up quizzes on Schoology
– Explore using Casper Focus for classroom management
– Investigate Nearpod or a different application that you’ve never tried.
Each session is worth 1/15th of a credit (1 seat hour).
Please bring your laptop and iPad.
