• The Macario Garcia Middle School chess club is designed for the promotion of chess among interested students.  Beginners as well as chess experts are welcomed into the club. Dr. Jack Exum will be co-sponsor this year.  The purpose of the chess club is to promote the game of chess as well as to promote critical thinking and strategic thinking skills while playing chess.

    The chess club this school year 2021-2022 will meet once a week after school on Tuesday afternoons at 4:20 pm in Dr. Exum's 6th grade science room 709-on the second floor.

    The chess club ends at 5 pm., so students need to have their parents pick them up at 5 pm. 

    The only exceptions to meeting dates are major events and/or STAAR testing days.

    Mr. Hesse, with the help of Dr. Exum, will consider possible student participation in chess tournaments if any student expresses an interest in taking part in the tournaments. Mr. Hesse will make facilitate arrangements for any chess club members that are interested in taking part in tournaments.

    The chess club is open to all students as well as any faculty member interested in playing chess. Mr. Hesse can be contacted at james.hesse@fortbendisd.com.
