Learn to Play Chess Night Set for September 15th

September 7th, 6:30AM

Students Learn to Play Chess

Would your child like to learn to play chess?  You are in luck!  Each year the Madison City Chess League holds a Learn to Play Chess Night that is free to the community.  This year, the event will be held at Mill Creek Elementary located at 847 Mill Road in Madison from 6:00-7:30 p.m.  Students K-12th grade are welcome to register for this free event.  Although the event is free, you must register online to participate.

Parents can learn to play also by sitting with their child during the lesson or they can attend a parent meeting led by the Executive Director of the Madison City Chess League, Ranae Bartlett, who will share information with parents on how they can help their children develop their chess playing skills.  Ms. Bartlett will also answer parents' questions.

Students Who Know How to Play Chess Can Volunteer!

The Madison City Chess League also asks students who are members of their school chess teams to register to volunteer during the event.  Volunteers should arrive by 5:30 p.m. and sign in upon arrival.   At Learn to Play Chess Night a student volunteer sits opposite the student who is learning to play chess and assisting as the instructor directs activity for the evening.  Student volunteers really make this event a success.  We are always grateful to our wonderful students who give back to their community by sharing their knowledge and skill during this event.
