ROMONA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

SESSION 1

 

Wednesdays 3:20-4:20 pm

 

Chess-Ed will continue to provide this unique, exciting and dynamic chess instruction
which lifts each student to a new level of expertise. Each week students will enjoy an
engaging lesson with supervised time to play classmates. Students will grow their knowledge
of the game - from the basics through opening theory, middle game tactics and end game
combinations. Students’ vocabulary and math skills will continue to advance. Studies confirm
that the student who plays chess does better academically. Playing chess increases IQ
performance, improves memory, uses analytical and critical thinking skills, and teaches problem
solving, responsibility, sportsmanship, social skills and more.

 

The chess program is open to all students in all grades and of all playing levels.

Girls on the run

Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a wonderful and popular 10 week program for 3rd and 4th grade girls. The girls train for a celebratory 5k run through interactive lessons that encourage positive physical and social-emotional development.  Volunteer coaches (usually Romona parents) are trained by the Girls on the Run organization and run 2 weekly 75 minutes practices which are held right after school at Romona.  

 

Girls on the Run will be offered this spring!
