Clubs & Activities

Chess Club

Are you interested in learning how to play chess? Or do you already know how to play? Are you looking for other chess players? Come join The Beacon Heights Chess Club! The BH Chess club is run by volunteer parents and chess coaches. The club will meet in the library from 3:20pm - 4:20pm on Tuesdays from October through March. Space is limited, hurry and sign up for the fun!

The club and coaches are funded by parent donations, and the majority of the donations will be used towards paying the coaches. We anticipate chess club donations being approximately $20 per child for the school year.  Registration will close as soon as the space is filled up.  Registrations received after that date will be placed on a waiting list. Questions? Please feel free to contact the club’s organizer, Hoyt Pace, at
