According to the Chess Scholars, “Current research has shown a strong link between chess and academic performance in a variety of areas, including mathematics and language arts. Also, chess has been proven to enhance children’s motivation, concentration, focus, social skills and creativity.” Chess Scholars offers an after school chess club at MQS for students in K5 through 8th grade for an additional fee.
The club meets once a week for six weeks from 3:05-4:05pm in fall and again in spring and each session includes interactive teaching and guided practice with an experienced coach. A chess competition with pizza and prizes is held on the last day. Registration forms are sent to families through the Wednesday folder a few weeks before the club begins.
