The MPTS Recreational Chess club offers students an opportunity to play chess against their peers. Managed by our parents, the club typically meets two Fridays each month, from 8:00 a.m. – 8:45 a.m. in the media center. Sign-up to volunteer!
This program is open to students in grades 1-5 and kindergartners who can play independently. There is no chess instruction during the Recreational Chess meetings. Students may join the club at any time throughout the year. This is a peer learning environment that is free, fun and non-competitive.
For more information please email MPTSRecChess@gmail.com.
