Carlos Gilbert Elementary

Carlos Gilbert has a chess club which in 2015/2016 won the Northern Schools Chess League, as well as taking second place in the New Mexico state team championship. We repeated the same feat in 2016/2017.

Carlos Gilbert also sports the individual 2013 state grade level champion for 1st grade and 2014 state grade level champion for 2nd grade, 2016 for 6th grade as well as many other strong individual and team results.

The club meets for an hour and a half on alternating Fridays after school at 12:30pm. In the fall of 2017 the meeting dates will be September 8, September 22, October 6, NOT October 20 (because of parent/teacher conferences), November 3, NOT November 17 (but the teams travel for chess league), December 1.

Any student at Carlos Gilbert can participate, but we request that Kindergarten children have a parent or guardian with them (this is a great chance to volunteer!)

We are also eager to have parents volunteer - not required, but it helps. Just let us know that you can show up for one or two Fridays in the term. Nothing technical, just be there to help.

To sign up please fill out the information in this web form:

Or you can just show up with your kid on the first Friday and give us your information.
