Dhrooti Vyas, a senior at Valley High School, will be teaching a free chess class titled “The Hoover Chess Initiative.” This class is for fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders at Hillside and will be held at the school on Monday nights through Dec. 14. We have 30 excited students ready to learn. The curriculum guide is from chess grandmaster Susan Polgar, who is a strong advocate of chess for the average student. Polgar believes chess improves students’ problem-solving and critical thinking skills, improving success in school, especially in math and science.
