Chess Club

Chess Club

The Chess Club consists of two groups (2-3 & 4-5), which meets once a week on different days beginning in the fall until May. Grades 2-5 are eligible to participate. The purpose of the Chess Club is to teach the students how to play chess with other students at the school in the morning before school starts. There are both informal games and timed games. Although not required, students are invited to attend local chess tournaments. Good sportsmanship, teamwork and relating chess to traditional academic subjects are additional benefits of joining the Chess Club.
