  • Chess club is for students who want to learn to play chess and play it well.  Chess is a 400-year-old game played in every county in the world that is great fun at every level from beginner to professional.  Chess teaches concentration, focus, and empathy:  the only way to succeed is to see the board from your opponent's perspective.  It also teaches how to win with grace and lose with dignity.  These are great skills for life and support Lincoln Elementary's core values.
