Dear Chess Club Participant, Parents & Guardians,
Thank you for your interest and excitement regarding the CHESS CLUB at Ruth Livingston. This is a great opportunity for students to gain valuable experience and practice by playing other students.
- Students must know the basics of chess. Including the names of the pieces, how they move, and the goal of the game.
- Parents are responsible for transportation
- Tuesdays, beginning November 19, 2019
3:40 - 4:45 PM in the gym
Students are required to bring a signed permission slip every Tuesday noting they will have transportation home at 4:45 pm. These permission slips are handed out during chess club or can be picked up from Room B-2. If the student normally rides a bus and does not bring a permission slip, he/she will be required to ride the bus home. Unfortunately, we cannot accept phone calls to the office or class Dojo's.
A small snack will be provided, usually pretzels or goldfish, however students are welcome to bring their own “chess-friendly” snack.
After Chess Club, students will be walked outside near the North parking lot by the flag pole.
Experienced students are encouraged (but not required) to attend tournaments. Tournament information will be handed out as soon as they are scheduled.
