Winter Session 2019 – Thursdays

This winter, we will have at least two teachers and a maximum of 16 students, as usual, to insure that students get plenty of individualized instruction.  Most classes we will have three teachers!  The winter session begins Jan. 17, 2019, and runs until April 4, with a vacation break on Feb. 21. We meet students in the cafeteria, right after class, at 2:35 p.m. Parents or Guardians should pick up their students from Keiko Ishikawa’s classroom, Room 105, at 4:05 p.m, if the students are not going to another after school activity.

For students in grades 1-5. $107 fee ($10 fee for free and reduced lunch students – contact Manager for more info)

Instructors: Brian Allen, Ben Resnick, and Peter Kron.

19th Century Game - Shusaku adjsmallWe play the ancient Asian board game of Go in this club. Go is a strategy game that is fun for both beginner and expert. We start out with small boards and simple instructions, and progress to the full territory-based game in a few classes. Since the game is easily handicapped, beginning players and weak players have an even chance of winning against more experienced and stronger players. This keeps the game fun for all.

The class will be conducted in English. This club is organized by the nonprofit Seattle Go Center, which offers a variety of classes and events. You can find more information about the Seattle Go Center at

Registration for this session is closed. Our next session will be in the fall of 2019.  It will be offered through the McDonald PTA.  Please go to their after school page for more info.
