Loganville Christian Academy Scrabble and Chess Club is an organization dedicated to helping students grow academically and socially through friendly competition in a relaxed atmosphere. Students gather together in the Media Center on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month to play Scrabble and chess with other middle and high school students.
Scrabble benefits students in many ways. It helps them build their vocabulary and improve their spelling. It also sharpens memory and encourages strategic thinking. In addition, Scrabble provides students an opportunity to form bonds outside of the classroom. This is beneficial for all students and especially for students who do not participate in other extracurricular activities. The game of chess is equally as valuable for students. Research shows that there is a strong correlation between learning to play chess and academic achievement. Students who play chess begin to understand the importance of thinking again, develop analytical and strategic thinking skills.
All students are invited to attend, and students can join at any point during the year.
