McGraw's student Chess Club, which meets every Friday from 8:00 - 8:45 in the media center, continues to grow in popularity. Every Friday before the school the media center is buzzing with the activity of over 40 students in grades K-5 who are learning the basics or polishing their chess-playing strategies. Several parent coaches/mentors are on hand to provide support.
Throughout the school year many students will chose to participate in local area Chess tournaments, but even those who don't are having a fun time learning logical and strategic thinking skills that will carry over to their learning across the school day. Please contact the McGraw Chess Club sponsor, 4th grade teacher Kristen Anderson, for information about how your child can join Chess Club.
