Garrettsville – Sarah Bittence and Michael Baczkowski (pictured above) won their respective divisions for the annual 4th grade PTO chess tournament (pictures below). Congratulations to them both! The tournament was held over their lunch break for several weeks, and they recently competed in the finals.
For the boys division, Michael Baczkowski defeated Luke Porter in the final match. For the girls division, Sarah Bittence defeated Hayley Koon in the finals.
The tournament was sponsored by the Garfield PTO and the elementary school. Students were invited to come during their lunch once a week and play chess, checkers, cards, or even just read a book. Over ninety different students participated in the program. Special thanks to the PTO, the fourth grade teachers, and principal Keri Dornack.
