CHESS Class Offered for Second Semester

I am proud to announce that there has been approval for a chess-based REACH class for second semester (end of January). The class will continue to implement KLA’s REACH values through the game of chess.

Students of all playing levels (including beginner) are encouraged to apply for the class. More information and questionnaires will be given out during REACH class. Students will develop their concentration, problem-solving, reading, writing, mathematical and communication skills… plus it will be fun!

This will be a very structured class that will begin with the fundamentals and progress to strategy and tournament instruction. It is our hope that we will be able to prepare a team of students for the 2014 National Scholastic Championships, which will be held in San Diego.

Contact Mr. Konitshek at for more information.

    Good luck with the class.
    Internet-chats and debates is affected by many problems, also the chess-servers. Young players feel better when joining good clubs
    for internet-gamings, then they also play better.
    Dont use ICC, try instead! Also Fics is somewhat bettar than ICC -and free.
    This text is spread now:

    Tip regarding chess on the internet.
    My english is a bit weak but I want to express thats its natural that ICC loses members, old and most new players join other IT-clubs.
    This short text is about ICC/internet chess club -degeneration. The main reason is “mental”.
    One example is that Its not possible to send critics regarding unsporty behaviour from an “helper” (the helper behaves unsporty during playing)
    without listening to a bunch of admins that get mad or rabid.. They all protect each other even if one of them acts clearly unsporty and they dont take a relevant debate about the problem but lies, spits and censores -like uneducated kids.
    I was one of the first IT-chess players around 1994, also holding my own tourneys in Sweden.
    I have experience enough. The admins of ICC today really destroyed an old nice club and dont fullfill the intentions from the grounder.
    ICC is nowadays more or less a club for demandless kids, abusers, cheaters and half-figures but still GM:s play there cause its free for them.
    The interfaces seem to be unserious spyware that not much help regarding cheatings.

    (Im an older teacher and one of my WP-blogs is for years mainly about unfairness and criminals in governments etc, fairness and justice is very important for me and I had many successes in the courts here, also alone versus several advocats. As a chessplayer I will spread information about ICC to many blogs and other sites cause I think my special knowledge can be used by many players)
