Chess Team News

Our CODE Academy chess team has had an AMAZING year!  Our team is one of the top ten primary countywide teams.  A big thank you to our chess coach, Mrs. Jones!


We are proud to announce that we have 19 players participating in the Polk County Grand Championship Tournament on March 10th. Students compete at their skill level with other students with the same skill level. We have one student, Abir Bhushan, who will be in the championship group. He will compete against 16 of the top students in the county. He will get special recognition for being in this group.



Alexander, one of our 5th grade students, received a medal and special certificate for winning all four matches in November.  During that competition, we placed fifth out of 27 teams for the elementary division.
