• We take chess very seriously here at Bell Fork Elementary.  The top chess players from grades 2nd-5th are chosen within the first semester of the year to practice each week in our Chess Club.  From our Chess Club members, we will determine our top 3 from each grade level to participate in the OCS Chess Tournament in the spring. 

    We are always looking for challenging opponents to learn from.  If you are an experienced chess player and are interested in helping our club members become even better at chess, please feel free to contact me at heather.smith@onslow.k12.nc.us.
