Pine Forest Chess Club has been playing chess for eight years now. It is sponsored by the Alpha, Talented and Gifted Program, for K-5th grade students. Students have met every Thursday after school to play games, watch instructional videos, and to socialize. Any Pine Forest student that wants to learn to play Chess is eligible to play with the school’s Chess Club. For information on joining, call Deborah Jones at 472-3011.


New members can join our club on Chesskid.com and play other Pine Foorest students over the summer.
