There are still spots available for the chess lunch program which starts next Monday. Students in all grades, including kindergarteners, can join the chess club.

Chess teaches girls to calculate and take risks, to become comfortable with loss and the learning that comes with it, and it builds their confidence over time.

Chess lunch club starts this coming Monday for Grades 1-6, and Tuesday for our Kindergarteners.
