No class on November 5, 12 & 19
Please note: Children who get out at 2:20 will be brought to the library at 2:20.
At 2:30, the children who are more experienced in chess will remain in the library, to begin class with Roger Poehlmann.
Those who are beginners or beginning intermediate level, will go to room 11 and have chess from 2:30-3:30 with Bob Guiang. (At 3:30, another class begins to use room 11)
Roger's class in the library starts at 2:30 and ends at 3:45, in order for the older children, who join at 2:45, to have an hour class.
After the first day it should be clear whether your child finishes at 3:30 in room 11 or 3:45 in the library.
Please be available to pick up (if you pick up your child) by 3:30 on the first day.
Chess is fun and can be learned quickly and easily. Studies have found that chess helps improve test results in reading, science, and math, and produces growth in critical cognitive skills. Beyond academia, chess influences social behavior including self esteem, respect for others, patience, and good sportsmanship. And did we mention: it’s FUN!
Boards and sets are provided for our classes. The minimum class size is 10; maximum is 20. For siblings, the first child is full price; additional siblings are half price. Also, some reduced fees are available to low-income families upon request.
