The Cordley PTA offers some fun after school clubs for students to participate in throughout the school year.  Read below about the fun and exciting clubs available!

    CHESS CLUB8172010_53444_0.jpg
    The Chess Club will meet Mondays throughout the school year in the school's Art Room from 3:55-5:00pm. Dues will be $5 per semester. The fees will be used to purchase chess equipment, such as the tournament-style sets and boards we purchased last year, to replenish paper used to photocopy, and so on.

    My primary goal is to teach and promote an interest in the game of chess, both for experienced and beginning chess players. Parent volunteers to assist at the club meetings are much appreciated, as last year we had 30+ club members. Formal Cordley Chess club members will be helping and assisting practices as well.

    I would encourage all students interested in chess to consider joining our club. Beginning players are very welcome, and no one is required to attend tournaments.

    At club meetings and at tournaments, good behavior and a willingness to learn are essential. I will expect children to play chess for the full time they are at the club meetings. Messy snacks and soda pop will not be allowed. I hope everyone will have fun learning chess, and I look forward to working with your children on chess this year.

    I will periodically distribute a chess newsletter with info about club happenings and also providing info about upcoming chess tournaments for players interested in playing scholastic chess. If you will supply me with an e-mail address, I can e-mail you the newsletter.
