Chess Club is an all year after school activity. Any 2nd-5th grader is welcome to join the club at anytime throughout the year, including home school students. Chess Club meets almost every Thursday after school in the elementary school library. We start right after school and play until 4:15 p.m.
We have a 5-week tournament at the end of the year. Each year we crown an overall school champion and two grade level champions.
Students must have a parent permission slip to participate.
