Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,


I am so excited to announce the creation of the Magnolia Elementary Chess Club! This is a fantastic opportunity for your children to learn the game of Chess. The Chess Club will meet on alternating Monday afternoons from 3:30 to 4:30 in the school library.


Students in grades 4 through 6 are eligible to join. Our members will be learning about the board and its pieces, game notation, tournament rules, along with game strategy. All levels of players from beginners to the advanced are welcomed. We are planning to hold school level tournaments throughout the school year. Parent letters will be sent home to inform you of tournament times and dates.


The Chess Club will require a $15.00 membership fee, which will provide each member with a Magnolia Chess Club t-shirt, and contribute to acquiring or maintaining equipment.

The Magnolia Chess Club shirt may be worn during Spirit Shirt Days, and during tournament days.

After each Monday meeting, we ask that your child be promptly picked up at 4:30 from the car rider area, unless they are enrolled in the Student Care Program.


Both the Chess Club Registration Form and Club fees must be submitted by Friday September 1, 2017 in order for your child eligible to join. Our first club meeting will be announced as soon as registration has ended.

I feel that this is going to be a great addition to the many wonderful things that sets Magnolia Elementary apart.  Not only will your child learn how to play Chess, but I believe they will also make new friends and have fun.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me through the school’s office at(337)-369-6120.
