Chess in Lower School

Waterford is excited to continue our tradition of Chess instruction in the Lower School. Class III, IV, and V students work with Kristin South, our Lower School Chess teacher, during the first months of school, and students who are interested in Chess competition are then encouraged to join our after-school competition chess program. This program attends several chess competitions throughout the year.

Remembering September 11

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

Where were you on September 11, 2001? Upper School students Tabitha Bell and Ty Cramer asked faculty to recall where they were and what they were doing when planes hit the twin towers of the World Trade Center at 8:45 a.m. in New York City. Although the events of September 11 are vividly remembered by our faculty and millions of Americans, current Waterford students have no memory of the day; our oldest students were one year of age when the attacks occurred.
