First day for the JH Book Club ~ Students select books that they want to read and then do book swaps with other students after they are finished reading the books.
Palacios Chess is a club that meets at Palacios Junior High after school on Tuesdays. We are open to and welcome all levels of play from never seen the game to seasoned competitors. Last school year teams from Palacios Chess competed in the UIL Chess Competition at the JH level and took home 4th place in the winter. In the spring we attended a Chess tournament in Rockport TX and our high school and junior high students brought home trophies and medals. A new season is starting up right now – join us as we learn to play and compete in the game of kings. Please contact Chess Coach James Post @ jpost@palaciosisd.org if you have any questions.
