Chess Club has Changed for 2010

Here is an important note from Mr. Gallagher:


For the 2010-2011 school year students in grades 4-6 will have an opportunity to participate in the Chess Club at Butler. In the past Chess Club has been open to all students in grades 1-6. It was exciting to see over 125 students sign up and participate in the Chess Club, however, the large number of students created a concern with the quality of Chess Club and with supervision.

While our goal in Chess Club is to allow students an opportunity to learn the game of chess and to refine their chess skills, our top priority remains student safety and supervision. Grade level participation in Chess Club will be reassessed after Chess Club begins.

Chess Club registration forms will be made available at the beginning of September. The following are the meeting dates for the 2010-2011 Chess Club. Tournament dates will be posted at a later time.

If you have any questions, or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Daniel Gallagher
Assistant Principal
