An incredible outpouring of support and an increase in popularity of scholastic chess in Maine resulted in a turnout of three hundred twenty-seven players with ages ranging from six to eighteen and including all grades from kindergarten to high school senior. There were nine teams in the K-3 Championship section.
There was a two-way tie for second place in the K-3 Championship section between Abraham Lincoln School (who received the second place trophy on tiebreaks) and Brewer Community School Team B.
The remaining teams in the K-3 championship section in order of finish were: Brewer Community School Team A, Fort O’Brien School, Hope Elementary School, Piscataquis Elementary School (who received the first place K-3 Novice section trophy) and Great Falls School.
Fifty-eight players and twelve teams competed in the K-6 Championship section. In clear second and receiving the Runner Up trophy in the K-6 Championship section was Brewer Community School with 14.5 points. A special nod to Omair who won all four matches.
Last week, Brewer Community School students learned about the buddy bench during assemblies. The buddy bench is a simple concept to eliminate loneliness, foster friendships and spread the message of inclusion and kindness. Our guidance counselors first spent part of their day reading The Invisible Boy as a preface to the Buddy Benches to all students. Then our Assistant Principal Jason Richards, modeled for the students, situations in a skit, where he needed to sit on the buddy bench. The kids understood the idea and had a good laugh while learning about the buddy bench, how to foster new friendships and how to be kind to their peers. Many thanks to all the teachers, guidance counselors and administrators that were involved in helping to obtain the buddy bench for the Brewer Community School.
