Chess at PS11
 

• CHESS at PS11 AfterSchool
On Wednesdays, Impact Coaching Network provides a class as part of the PS11 Programs Inc. afterschool program.  Impact Coaching Network instructors emphasize sport and fun and provide as much chess instruction as a child can bear, but not more.  In doing so and providing supervised, spirited play, each student associates chess with fun. For more information and this year's AfterSchool schedule, please visit PS11 Programs.

PS11 Farm Market
The PS11 Farm Market has been in operation since June 2008. As members of the Chelsea CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), PS11 receives fruits and vegetables from Stoneledge Farm, a 90 acre, certified organic farm located in the foothills of the Northern Catskills. The market is run by 3rd grade students. The students learn about healthy eating, good nutrition, agriculture and local foods, as well as learn how to make change, weigh & sort produce and interact with the community. The market operates Wednesday mornings from 8am to 11am in front of PS11 from mid-June through late November.
