The Club is open to all Estabrook students in grades 1-5 who enjoy chess and want to play in an environment that promotes learning, fun and good sportsmanship.
The Club will be split into two groups, each group meeting on alternating Friday mornings from 7:45 AM – 8:30 a.m. in the Estabrook music room/ cafeteria. Grouping will be decided once we have everyone signed up.
Chess Club for Group A: beginning Friday, September 20th (continuing every other Friday), 7:45 – 8:30 a.m.
Chess Club for Group B: beginning Friday, September 27th (continuing every other Friday), 7:45 – 8:30 a.m.
Volunteers are needed! Email Aaron and Jing if you can help.
The Club has some simple guidelines and conditions:
We only take on students who already know the basics of how to play the game.
We kindly ask that you remind your child to be respectful and well-mannered. (Students who repeatedly behave in ways that disrupt the meetings will be asked to leave the club).
There will be 4 tournament sessions for each group (by grade level) at the end of the school year and every student will receive a reward for participating in the tournaments.
To help defray various costs, we request an annual membership fee of $16 / student (scholarships will be available upon request).
To register your child for Chess Club, visit the store in Membership Toolkit.
If you prefer to pay by check, please make out the check to Estabrook PTO and send it to school in your child’s yellow folder in a clearly marked envelope. Please do not send cash. For financial assistance needs, please contact the school counselor, Matthew Willis, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
