Mr Glenn coaching a student

One of our former students who is now a senior at Waltrip, Kaylah Preston, has been the liaison between Waltrip's Coach Mr. Gonzalez, and our Coach Mr. Glenn. After this first tournament, Burbank will host Waltrip the following Saturday, March 5th, at Burbank's library. It is everyone's hope that these initial competitions will pave the way for more schools to participate in the near future.

If you would like to join Burbank's Chess Club, please contact Mr. Glenn in Room A-102.
