"Chess Makes You Smart; Here's the Proof! Playing chess has proven to help students enhance their creativity, improve their power of concentration, develop and expand critical thinking skills, boost memory and retention, and achieve superior academic performance." SIGN-UP HERE
RISE UP! Plans to provide both tangible & digital content to students who register. Monthly, students will receive curriculum that they can do at home and/or with friends & neighbors (25 or less kids of course)! Though we would prefer to be meeting together after school at our local elementary schools, we are excited for a chance to try something new and to see if we can share God's unconditional love with more kids through character development!
