Fourth and fifth grade students at West End Elementary School recently participated in their second chess session. The students enjoyed talking strategy and using the pieces in the most effective way. They were also able to use a website to verse a computer and collaborated on the moves while using some skillful strategies. The fifth grade students then used their skills to coach their peers who are new to the game. 

“It was wonderful to watch,” said teacher Chelsea Jaret.
