Chess Club is coming on Monday, Jan. 30th, but there is still time to register.  We will have an instructional video during lunch recess on 1/30, so chess experience is not necessary.  Chess Club will meet during lunch recess on 2/6, 2/13, 2/27, 3/6, 3/13 & 3/20.   We always need volunteers, and knowledge of chess is NOT required.  It’s a great way to help out your child’s school without a big time commitment.  Questions?
