Where Chess Players Grow!
May 29, 2019

Our second year of Chess Club and we continue to make steady progress! This year we had over 30 active participants and we were able to take two teams to the annual County Team Tournament.   

Please continue to practice your chess skills throughout the summer.  Being a good chess player requires hours and hours of practice.  log on to your account at ChessKid.com.  You never know when you'll run into Ms. Cassy on this site  ;-)

Another valuable resource is LIChess.org.

I am looking forward to seeing you and some new faces in the Fall.  Enjoy your summer!
