Saturday Academy, Chess, and Fencing
January 13, 2018 @ 8:30 am - March 10, 2018 @ 12:00 pm
Saturday programs are open to students by invitation, and parents should consult with their child’s teachers.
This 9-week program Saturday Academy session is for 3rd graders, and builds student skills in reading to meet the grade-level requirements. Classes are from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
In order to accommodate Saturday Accademy students, chess team practices will now be scheduled from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. To be competitive, students need additional chess instruction beyond Yalow’s regular Tuesday and Thursday chess classes; thus we have this Saturday session, where tournament tactics are addressed.
Fencing team practice for 1st and 2nd graders takes place from from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Children compete using steel épée swords using electric scoring.
