East Middle will be starting up a Chess Club again this year. It will occur on Tuesday afternoons from 3:15 to 4:15 p.m. It will begin October 29th & run through December. We will then take a break through the snow season, but resume in 2020. (February 18th – June 2nd). 

***There will be no chess club on November 26th nor on non-school days

Students of all skill levels are welcome.

The focus will be developing skills and relationships, not on competition, though we may do a voluntary chess tournament at the end of the year.  Jim Lawson and Ron Peck will lead the club.

How can chess help your son or daughter?

  • It can help students improve their concentration
  • It can help them learn to reflect and not respond impulsively
  • It can help them develop critical thinking skills and self-confidence.
