Check and Mate

A game. Not just your everyday board game. A game of skill, strategy, and fun. Queens, Rooks, Pawns, Knights, Kings, and Bishops. You rule over them all.


In fact, it’s like your own little kingdom with your own little army and battlefield. There’s one place at Theisen that you can play this amazing game, Chess Club. Chess Club meets every other Tuesday in room 113 from 7:10-when school starts in the morning. It’s for all grades 6-8. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t touched a chess piece before, or if you play every day. Since I’m in chess club myself I know that if you are just a beginner or really great you learn things you didn’t know before. We also have a chess lesson every day to improve beginners and refresh the minds of others. It’s just a time to play a really great game with other Theisen tigers! Just take a seat in a desk and play!


The wonderful teacher who hosts this awesome game is Mrs. Linden. Mrs. Reynard Theisens 6th grade science teacher has lended Mrs. Linden her room every other Tuesday to play chess. So if you are in chess club remember to thank the chess club teacher, but also remember to thank Mrs. Reynard for lending her room. Since I’m in chess club myself I know that if you are just a beginner or really great you learn things you didn’t know before. We watch videos, learn moves, and have a lot of fun playing the game. So if you have nothing to do on tuesday morning then come to chess club! YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A PRO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
