Mission San Jose Elementary Chess 09-10

May 18, 2010

Tonight was the final night of the school year for the chess team at Mission San Jose Elementary School in Fremont. The team members, parents and coaches all celebrated each others company one last time and reflected on the many success stories of the previous season. During this school year, Mission San Jose Elementary won the most sections at the 2009 Calchess Grade Level Championships, won the most sections at the 2010 Calchess State Championships, and placed in the top ten of all four sections at the 2010 National Elementary Chess Championships. As much as I am saddened to see the year end, I am equally optimistic that the next school year will add  new talent and provide  many more notable accomplishments.
