MSCC (Middle School Chess Club)

  • Any 6th, 7th, or 8th grader is welcome to come play chess!  MSCC will meet on Tuesdays after school upstairs at the middle school in room 201 from 3:30 to 4:30. Students do not have to know how to play to join MSCC.  Mr. Leija can teach you how to play.  If you want to come, get a permission slip from the middle school office and have your parents sign it.  Then return it to the middle school office and show up on Tuesdays.  Home-school students are welcome to join chess.
