Back by popular demand, Holmes will once again be offering an introductory chess program for Kindergarten, 1st Grade and 2nd grade students. This program, run by parent volunteers, will provide step-by-step instruction to beginning chess students with the goal of developing their skills to a level where they can join the Chess Club in the future. Beginning Chess will meet on Fridays during the lunch/recess hour. The program will run December 5th, 2014 to March 27th, 2015.
This program will be able to accommodate a maximum of 20 students. Participation in this program is a 4-month commitment, and members are expected to attend weekly. Three unexcused absences will result in replacing the student with someone from the waiting list. If your child has expressed interest in the Beginning Chess program, please make sure that they have a clear understanding of the commitment involved.
If your child is interested, please click this link to fill out the form and return it to Mrs. Circo by December 1st.
If you are interested in becoming a parent volunteer please indicate your availability on the form as well. All the parent volunteers will receive a consultation with Mrs. Circo and Mr. Grace to facilitate an easy, sequential learning process.
