St. Louise chess team at St. Anne Chess Tournament
 

Last weekend 4 members from Chess Club attended St. Anne Chess Tournament in Seattle. This year we have young participants but they did their best efforts and I am very proud of them. Here are the results:

 

  • K-1 U800 Division: Dane Milton and Rachel Sloss attended this group, Dane got 4 points and 2nd place in individual results. St. Louise got 1st place team trophy in this group 😊
  • 2-3 U800 Division: Christopher Antezana and Nathan Victor participated in this group, Christopher got a plus score with 3.5 points.

 

It was great to see Nathan attend his first tournament and Rachel got a medal for great sportsmanship. They did their best efforts in  a challenging group and represented St. Louise school very well.

 

 

Welcome to Winter 2018 session of Chess Club!
 
Tomorrow is our first day of the session and we will start at 2:00 p.m. right after school ends. We will all meet in St. Louise Room (check the map below), so please remind your kids to head directly there. In this first session the coaches will evaluate the students and will split in the proper groups based on their level, bear in mind that this is an initial evaluation and further moves could come later.
 
Classes will end about 3:00 p.m. and pick up will be at the door of St. Louise room. Please remember to sign the class list when you pickup your kid, since it will help us to keep track of our students. If any student is not picked up by 3:20 p.m. we will take them to Kids Club. 
 
Also our club requires the help of parent volunteers, I would appreciate the help of at least 2 parent volunteers per session. 
 
 
Welcome
 
The St. Louise Chess Club is run in order to allow students to learn and improve their chess abilities through instruction, game play, and competition in a fun, respectful, and encouraging environment.  While students will be encouraged to play in some tournaments for the overall experience, the St. Louise Chess Club is primarily a recreational club. 
 
The St. Louise Chess Club is managed by Oscar Antezana.  If you have any questions, please contact us via ChessManager@StLouiseSchool.Org.
 
For any further questions, please contact Maria Zambrano, Extracurricular Activities Coordinator at mariaz@stlouiseschool.org
