Davison Elementary/Middle school is not new to the chess community. Even in years where there was no official club, some classrooms used chess as a part of it’s curriculum.
Over the last 3 years the Davison’s Chess Club has grown from a hand full of kids to over twenty students from 2nd to 8th grade. In 2018-19 a few of the club memebers formed a team who competed on Saturdays with other DPSCD and Detroit schools. Davison’s Chess Team along with two other DPSCD schools has qualified for the US Chess Federation Elementary National Competition in Nashville, TN in May.
