Spread the word!  SFJH has a chess club!

According to Mr. Mortimer, “There will be a chess tournament today right after school. Meet in the Cafeteria to play.” 

Mr. Mortimer and Mr. Lawrence have been hosting this club after school this term.  At this writing, this reporter doesn’t know how many more days it will be continuing—we are on end of school countdown after all—but the attendance at today’s meeting was amazing!  If you check SFJH’s Face Book page, you can watch some of the students play during a live session.

Mr. Lawrence and Mr. Mortimer are really fired up when it comes to chess.  In fact, Mr. M. could hardly contain his enthusiasm when he sent this reporter a picture of the top trophies for the tournament winners, “I think they are pretty awesome!”
