Chess Club Starts Today!

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
  • April 2

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.

Wired Wednesday


Please join me for Wired Wednesday. We will focus on one application, program or teaching strategy that will make life better for you or your students either by enhancing teaching/learning or streamlining work-flow. Each session is worth 1/15th of a credit (1 seat hour). The first class will be “Schoology Assignments” on Sept.
