This is a special information session for all Lower Lab parents who want to learn more about the after school chess program or the Lower Lab chess team. The directors of Chess NYC, our after school chess vendor, will give us an overview of the chess program, introduce their team of instructors, and explain the requirements for the chess team. This will be followed by a preview of upcoming tournament events, parents sharing their experiences, and Q&A.

I am asking that all Yu-Gi-Oh of Pokémon trading cards be kept at home. Students have experienced issues with trading cards of different monetary values. Although I am often drawn to the interest, engagement, and creativity involved with this game, some things are better off left for outside of school.
Thank you for your cooperation and have a wonderful weekend.
