New Chess Program at St. Stans Starts This Fall!

From July 2017 Principal’s Update: “We are thrilled to announce that we are expanding our curriculum to include #chess! Chess NYC will provide weekly chess instructions during the school day to Kindergarten & 1st grades. Students will receive an exciting introduction to the game of chess and learn strategies and techniques to advance their playing skills. Grades 2nd and upward will have the opportunity to opt-in for lessons and practice sessions during lunch and recess and all chess players can participate in chess tournaments with other chess players from around NYC. We will also have weekly chess instruction as part of our after-school program.”
