Once again, we are inviting brave and cunning kings and queens in Lower and Upper El to join the club for weekly games and instruction.
All are welcome—no experience necessary. We plan on meeting every Friday morning before school, from 8:00-8:45 AM, in the Media Center, starting on Friday, September 29. All members who are interested will have the option of playing on a Chantilly team at one or more of the three CMS team tournaments, held throughout the school year. Questions? Please contact lead parent coordinator Mark Wilson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We plan to continue our tradition of not charging any money for participating in this low-key, volunteer-run club, but as usual we are asking parents/guardians of members to volunteer to help chaperonethe Friday morning club meetings a minimum of twice during the school year, if your schedules allow it. Chess experience is not necessary for chaperoning the club, and younger siblings (in Primary) may be brought along any time a parent hosts. Be sure to register as a CMS volunteer–to do so, click here –in advance of volunteering. Use the same website to log hours after each time you serve as a volunteer.
