Huge Win for PS11 Girls at Nationals 

The Chelsea Chessmates girls were  a powerhouse in Chicago as they played incredible chess, tying for second place in the U10 section at the all-girls Nationals Chess Tournament. Congratulations to our team consisting of Sabella, Indira, and Meera. And an impressive showing by adorable  Kindergartener Emma (U8), playing her first ever Nationals. Girls, your hard work and amazing team spirit makes us proud!

Saratoga Success: Chessmates At the New York State Tournament 

The PS11 chess team fielded 19 players across different sections, for many of whom it was their first State Championship. While we lacked team trophies, we more than made up for it in team spirit.  In individual honors, Avaan placed third in the Primary Championship section and Meera was second in the U800 section. The Chessmates are going strong, watch out Nationals!
