Chess Club gives students an opportunity to play friendly games of chess against their peers in a low-stress environment. Chess promotes higher order thinking skills and positive socialization in a fun and friendly forum at school. Students of all levels are welcome to come. Help and instructions will be given to beginners.  

As the year progresses, chess variants and strategies will be taught. Initially Chess Club will be for recreational purposes, however as participants improve we will take part in competitions.
