Chessie is a reading program for grades K-3 where students gain both confidence and comprehension skills by reading to adult volunteers and answering questions about what they've read. Students meet before school in the Media Center according to the following schedule:

  • Mondays: 1st and 3rd grade
  • Tuesdays: Kindergarten and 2nd grade (Kindergarteners will start in January)
  • Wednesdays: 1st and 3rd grade
  • Thursdays: Kindergarten and 2nd grade
