    Chess is a critical thinking game that provides intellectual stimuli, training, and enhances the life skills of concentration, sportsmanship, and competition.

    Due to a few school commitments, I am delaying the beginning of the chess club until the first week of October.

    1. Meetings will be held weekly on Mondays, after school, until 5:00 pm in Mrs. Watson's classroom.
    2. Our first meeting will be on Monday (10/3/22).  Permission slips will be given out beginning Wednesday (9/21/22).  An announcement will be made, and permission slips can be picked up during homeroom in Mrs. Watson's classroom or from the front office.
    3. Any grade-level student and ability player (novice, intermediate, or advanced) is welcome to join.
    4. Chess instruction will be based on casual, competitive, computer, round-robin, clock, and score-card play.  The BOE chess tournament will be held in March 2023.                                                                 
    • Students are allowed to bring snacks. Students can purchase snacks at the school store until 4:00 pm.
    • Students need to be picked up at 5:00 pm.
    • Please email me if you have any questions lwatson@effingham.k12.ga.us.
