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.
