At Pinello this year, we will be offering Chess Club to all 3rd - 5th graders who are interested in learning and playing chess. Experienced and new players are all welcome, and although you can bring your own chess set you do not need to. Chess club begins Tuesday August 31st.  Chess will be held Tuesday afternoons from 3:30pm-4:15pm in the library. Near the end of our season, about 5 players will be chosen to represent Pinello in the District Chess Tournament at the end of January. Please have your student see Mr. Letellier or the front desk for a permission slip. Only registered students may attend chess club.
