Our chess club is a user-pay program run by our chess teacher, Jim Cannon. The class has become so popular we have had to split it into 2 ability sessions. The beginner’s class is held on Monday mornings from 8:00am–9:00am. The advanced players attend Wednesday mornings 8:00am-9:00am. Jim does a wonderful job. He has incredible patience and is able to develop the skills of every child through a positive and friendly approach. All children receive public acknowledgement of their achievements at a special assembly at the end of each year. We have had teams enter state championships and recently the National championships.
At this stage we offer a user-pay program for:
