Check Mates

Friday, April 11, established yet another ground-breaking first for the Partnership for Inner-City Education as 115 students representing all six network schools, from Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade, participated in the 2014 Partnership Chess Open. This is the first year the Partnership introduced the after-school chess program in all six schools. Michael Propper’s organization, Chess NYC, made sure that the essential fundamentals were taught to all students and we look forward to continuing the program for years to come. Fox 5 News was on hand with their “NY Minute” crew to commemorate the event. Check out the link:
