Adaire Chess Club
Mondays, after school
The Adaire Chess Club, founded and run by Friends of Adaire board member Stefan Zajic, meets Mondays after school. Each week, 15-30 students of all grades meet to play chess, solve puzzles, learn tactics & strategy, and have fun.
Chess has been shown to have a positive impact on academic achievement for kids of all ages, for topics such as math, science, and problem solving. In addition, chess builds character in areas including fair play, personal responsibility, determination and thinking ahead.
Many thanks to the After School Activities Partnership for their support of chess at Adaire, and to volunteers Bryan, Mark, and Vicki, who help every week.
For more information, please email Stefan.
