Dear Dommerich Chess Enthusiasts,

From September 14th through December 14th, Chess Club will be held for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders in the Dommerich Media Center on Fridays, 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.  (All second graders will learn about chess and play matches during regularly scheduled class visits to the library, throughout the school year.)


There is no cost for participating in our Dommerich Chess Club.  However, the application must be received before Wednesday, September 5th.  Once all applications have been reviewed, students will be assigned one of three chess club sessions, via email.

In January, Mrs. Aydt takes a break from chess in order to dedicate herself to other school activities taking place at that time.  In February, a 15 member chess team is selected.  This Dommerich Chess Team competes in smaller tournaments and an elite 10 member team competes in the district tournament at the end of the school year.  Last year, our Dommerich team finished in 3rd place, out of over 80 teams.  Please encourage your child to consider participating in our DES Chess Club!
