Welcome to Chess!




Chess is an amazing game with numerous benefits such as raising a person’s IQ level, exercising both sides of the brain, improving memory, increasing problem-solving skills, and many other attributes. We have an ever growing club here at TES that provides opportunities for students to play and gain these beneficial skills. Our program has grown so much that we have a district wide tournament every year in which students compete against other students who are at the same level. Over the past several years, this tournament has grown to include not only elementary schools, but intermediate and junior high. 


TES Chess Club will start  November 5, 2018

We will meet every Monday in  the Science Lab from 4:15 pm - 5:00 pm.  Students will go to the hallway outside the science lab at dismissal time for car riders. right of the office. We will dismiss promptly at 5:00 pm.  We will pick your students up from the back parking lot door near the playground.  


For logistical reasons, chess club will be open only to 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade students. Beginners to advanced players are invited to join.
