Lannon Chess Club to begin in March

Lannon Elementary School is forming an afterschool Chess Club for its students in third, fourth and fifth grades. Students will meet in the school library from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Wednesdays in March.

There are three levels of play to accommodate all types of learners:

  • beginners – for those who want to learn the moves and some basic strategies;
  • players – students who know how to play and want practice playing others; and
  • challengers – chess masters who want to challenge high school chess players.

Lannon School chess champions will be determined March 31 at a chess tournament for Chess Club members.

Lannon third grade teacher Laureanna Raymond is coordinating this activity. Students should send in a signed permission slip and package of cookies for a treat if they are interested in joining the Lannon Chess Club. For more information, contact Raymond at 255-6106.

Lannon Elementary School is located at 7145 N. Lannon Rd., Lannon.
