Please join us in congratulating the PS/MS 282 Royal Panthers chess team, which had an amazing weekend at the 2014 National Elementary Championship in Dallas, TX. These kids are incredible, and once again they had a great run, including these stellar results:
- 2nd in the country in K-3 U800
- 8th in the country in K-5 U900
- 5th in the country in K-6 U1000
- 20th in K-1 Open
- Masai Williams, 5th grader in K-6 U1000 section, went 6-1 and came in 3rd place individually in the nation!
We couldn’t be more proud, congrats Panthers!
If you’d like to help support the team and all the kids at the local school, you can make a donation online to the 282 PTO. Or, if you’re feeling more hands-on, stop by the school at 180 6th Avenue this Saturday to help paint a new, giant mural.
