Then come out and join the Chess Club! The Chess Club meets every Thursday from 3:45-4:45 in Mr. Welder’s room (816)
Chess is played at all levels, beginner to advanced, and SGMS Chess club enters into a fall and spring tournament against other schools.
All 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students are welcome.
Think chess isn’t cool? Tell that to Barack & Michelle Obama, Bill Gates, Jay-Z, Heidi Klum, Chris Rock, Ludacris, Tiger Woods, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Will Smith, Barry Bonds, Derek Jeter, or Anna Kournikova, all of whom play chess. Chess is about outsmarting your opponent – anyone can play. Care to join us?
SEE SOMETHING/SAY SOMETHING-IMPORTANCE
One of the best ways to keep our schools safe is through See Something, Say Something. This means that we all should observe our environment and develop awareness of our surroundings. When we see suspicious activity, something that seems out of place, or hear someone make threats to harm another person, we say something. Even if we are not certain, we trust our instincts and make a report to the trusted adults in the building. Please share with your child the importance of being a leader and not a follower. We are creating a culture of excellence where respect is the norm. Respect is shown through our actions so ensure your child is aware that the norms of SGMS EXCEL will ground them in the traits to be the leader that is within them.
