The Chess Club
Mr. G - Tuesday from 3:30 - 4:30 - Grades 4 & 5
If you have never played chess before, there are some things you should know. Chess is a thinking 2-player strategy game that involves planning and problem solving. Each player has 16 pieces that all have unique movement. Games usually last for around 25 minutes each.
The club will run from 3:30-4:30 after school in Mr. Guglielmino's room (11C) and is open to 4th and 5thgraders. In the club we will be learning about each chess piece, how they all move around the game board, and effective strategies. We will also learn about proper behavior and good sportsmanship that we should be showing whenever we are playing. Throughout our time together we will have different class tournaments where we can compete against each other. It will be a lot of fun!
Amazing Animal Planet
Mrs. Piller - Friday’s from 3:30 - 4:30 - Grades 2 & 3
Touch down on our amazing Animal Planet where we’ll explore the animal kingdom through tons of hands-on activities. Want to learn fascinating facts about cute, cuddly and even strange and scary creatures? Through crafts, stories, games, puzzles and movies you’ll get to go on the adventure!
If you sign up for this adventure, please make your best effort to attend. Its lots of fun and limited to the first 15 responses. (In case of snow days there will be no club. A make-up day will be added to the schedule.)

As we all know, giving warms the soul and helps us connect with and empathize with those less fortunate or in some way, in need. Join Ms. Andrews on Wednesday mornings at 7:40 starting on October 4th.
