2009 BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE

Chess Club

All Saints Chess ClubTo continue offering Chess Club, we are currently looking for a chairperson for the 2016-17 school year. Please contact the school if you are interested.

The All Saints Chess Club is available to 2nd-8th graders and meets twice a month in the Art Room. The goal of the club is to increase all students’ understanding and enjoyment of the game of chess. Children may bring a snack and/or drink, and must be picked up by 4:15 p.m. or they will be taken to Extended Day.

The fee to participate is $10.00 per child club fee (payable to All Saints Catholic School) which will be used to replenish supplies and purchase award items.

Volunteers Needed:
The Chess Club needs volunteer parents to assist with meetings and greeting the students, supervising games/activities, and helping out as needed. Chess experience is not required.  Please let us know if you are willing to help.  Volunteering at one meeting will earn one share in the Family Stewardship Program.

For the beginners, we will focus on learning the rules of the game.  For the more advanced players, we will study basic tactical principles and checkmating themes.  We will try to encourage a healthy attitude of competitiveness both by encouraging the students to play against and learn from one another and by encouraging the students to participate in local chess competitions.
