Congratulations 8th Graders!

How to Get Started with Blogger

Blogger is a simple to use blog site.


The focus is on producing content, not on the creation and customization of the site itself. So, it makes for an ideal place for students to create a portfolio or even to just share information on a certain topic they are studying.

The video below shows you how to get started using so that students can sign in to it using their Telluride School District Googles Apps account.

You can pop the video out to a full size view by clicking on the rectangle in the lower right side of the video after it starts to play.

TIS Chess Club

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Your child is invited to join the TIS Chess Club. This year the Chess Club will be meeting on Wednesdays May 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd from 3:30 – 4:30 in the TIS Lab.

The TIS Chess Club welcomes students of every ability level, from the complete beginner to accomplished grand masters. Everyone will learn new tactics, new strategies and will have FUN!

The membership fee for Chess Club is $10 (scholarships available) and is valid through their entire school career. This small fee will help to ensure that Chess Club will be able to continue next year. There are no refunds. Students will also receive a tournament style board and pieces in order to practice at home with friends and family.

Students MUST have a permission form signed by a parent in order to join. Please indicate below if your child will be picked up, or will be walking home on their own. Please be in the school driveway loop by 4:35 if you will be picking up your child.

Students are welcome to bring snacks to the Chess Club.

Please contact me if you have any questions or comments.
