DPES Chess Club

 DPES Chess Club 

We had over 60 applications for our 36 spots in Chess Club in September. If your student did not get in, they have been placed on a Waiting List. Students need to have a signed permission form to participate. This is the Spanish Version. (It is preferred that your student know some basics of Chess if they want to join Chess Club after December.)

Mrs. French will be at the front porch at 7:45 am to pick up Chess Club Members.  If your student arrives late, they not be allowed to play that day. They would remain on the porch until the bell rings. There is no school supervision until 8:10 am.


To make Chess Club fun and enjoyable for everyone, students are expected to follow ALL Chess Club rules.  

  • Come to Chess Club regularly and be on time (7:45 am)
  • Be an eager learner and a gracious competitor. You will win some and you will lose some. You are learning.
  • Keep up your grades, get good conduct marks and be at school every day.
  • Treat others with respect.
  • Take care with the Chess sets.
  • Leave the library ready for the Librarian.


Please email Mrs. French at or call the school at 281-357-3134 ext. 3074 with any concerns about your student's attendance.  


Here are some great Online Resources for Chess for your student to explore Chess at home.
