Chess Club

Chess club is for students with any level of experience in chess to gather and play other students in a casual environment. We provide a brief lesson and time to play chess. There is an annual optional tournament hosted by Orchard in winter. 

Chess club is open to students K-5 (kindergarteners must have an adult present). Students are welcome at any skill level - no experience to advanced. 

We meet weekly after school on Thursdays 3:20-4:00. Our season begins in October and continues through April.
