Morning Chess Kick-Off this week!

Our morning chess program launched this week with very strong attendance (~40 in total) for the Advanced group on Monday and Intermediate group on Tuesday.  Also a big thanks to parent coach Elina (Dale's mom) for volunteering to teach a Novice group on Tuesday mornings as well, and to Joanne (Marco's mom) for assisting.

Parents, please let us know if you can volunteer to chaperone morning parent-run play sessions for the children as well. There are many more students who cannot join due to size constraints, but we'd love to give every child a chance to play!
