CHESS CLUB COMMITTEE: Calling all chess club enthusiasts in grade 1-5! Chess Club is coming on Monday, Feb 5th. There will be an instructional video during lunch recess on 2/05 and then start playing Chess, so chess experience is not necessary. We will be meeting during lunch recess in the gym for 6 weeks beginning on 2/5, 2/12, 2/26, 3/5, 3/12 & 3/19. Please return your CHESS CLUB PERMISSION SLIP by Wednesday, Jan. 31st. We always need volunteers, and knowledge of Chess is not required. It’s a great way to help out your child’s school without a big time commitment. Questions? Contact Becky Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org or Julie Soderna at email@example.com.

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS COUNCIL OF PTAs: As part of its commitment to lifelong learning, the Arlington Heights Council of PTAs (AHC) offers scholarships for summer programs and camps to current District 25 students in kindergarten through seventh grade who wish to broaden their education, talents and experiences. Scholarships will be awarded for the full cost of the summer program/camp up to $200. Scholarships are paid directly to the summer camp/program so the award will not have to be claimed to the IRS as unearned income. No scholarships will be paid to the recipient or a recipient’s parent/guardian. The amount approved by the AHC Elementary Scholarship Committee will be paid to the summer camp/program that was submitted on application. Only one application may be submitted per student. The summer program or camp must start on or after June 1, 2018 and be completed by August 31, 2018. To comply with the Bylaws of PTA, the summer program must be “noncommercial, nonsectarian, and nonpartisan,” a camp with the purpose of religious instruction will be ineligible for a scholarship.Submit your electronic application by Sunday, February 18, 2018, 11:59 p.m. Central.
