Whitestone PTA is excited to offer an enrichment program to our students, the Whitestone Chess Club! This program uses the game of chess to teach students critical math skills in areas of logic, concentration, critical thinking, and strategy.
 
THE CHESS CLUB WILL BEGIN FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 22ND! 
 
Chess Club is every Friday from 7:00-7:40 A.M.
 
This program is completely run by volunteers. We need parents, grandparents, older siblings, etc. to help run this program. We will need several volunteers to mentor the students on the rules and strategy involved in chess. We need 4 volunteers each Friday morning.  Please contact Siva Manikanteswaran at ranjshiv@gmail.com
to volunteer.
 
There is no cost to join the program.  If your child would like to participate in area-wide chess tournaments, they will need to become a member of the US Chess Federation.  Kids are not required to participate in any tournaments to be a part of the chess club.  Please visit www.austinchesstournaments.com for a list of upcoming tournaments.
