We will be starting a new chess club at Edgewood Elementary on Friday, September 30, 2016, meeting in Room E2 (Science Room). The club will meet each school day Friday, 2:45-4:00PM. The class will be conducted by Jerry Ramey, who has been teaching chess at Eugene schools for over 20 years. Each session will have two periods of about equal length, one for instruction and the other for playing, with the goal of applying the techniques learned in the actual games. Many of our students have been successful in local, state and national chess competitions. Chess is one of the greatest of all games, challenging and fun, and we look forward to making it available to the kids at Edgewood. Fall term runs from 9/30 to 12/16/2016 with a fee of $100.You can enroll your child by going to our web site http://www.southsidechess.com or by emailing Jerry firstname.lastname@example.org. You are also welcome to call Jerry at 541-232-0328 for more information.
