It was very rewarding to watch the club members embrace the game of chess. It is not the game for everyone. I'm so proud of each one you hung in there to the end.

It is time to register for KMS Chess. I am excited to see new and familiar faces. Players will learn new skills and brush up on old ones as well as play with teammates. This year we will have two (2) groups one on Monday and one on Wednesday. Your child will only attend one (1) day of the week..
Below you will find some of the “need to knows” about chess. If you have questions, please feel free to email me at [email protected]. If your child joins you will also be able to contact me and keep up with your child’s progress through the Remind App. I plan to send you a “Remind” invite if your child is accepted with more information. Club meetings will begin Monday, September 11, 2023 and Wednesday, September 13, 2023.
Requirements: Students will be expected to attend school regularly and have no behavior referrals. The club is open to 20 (twenty) 2nd – 5th grade students. (20 for Monday and 20 for Wednesday) The first to turn in the permissions forms will be selected. This is an after school club. We meet on Mondays from 2:45-4:30 pm and on Wednesdays from 2:45 -4:30 pm. Transportation is not provided. You will be responsible for picking your child up at 4:30pm.
Tournaments – Members will be expected to compete in a chess tournament. Attendance to meetings and tournaments is very important. Tournament dates will come later.
Membership Fee will be $25 for members. The money will cover the cost for a club t-shirts and gold membership on a secure online chess website. Please have your child wear the t-shirt on meeting days to show support. Parents will be asked to donate snacks.
Improving my game – Practice is key in chess. Students will have puzzles and games to practice at home. To encourage fun, please discuss good sportsmanship and practice often at home. If no one at homes plays, please allow your child to play on-line with class mates. We use a secure website called chesskids.com. I will register your child after he/she signs up. Deadline to register is August 25, 2023.
