Dr. Alexey Root welcomed twenty four Newton Rayzor Elementary School students, one teacher, and four parent chaperones to Denton High School. The group visited 10 Denton High School chess club members. The Newton Rayzor students were divided into three groups of eight. Denton High School chess club members further divided the groups of eight into pairs (in the room that had 4 Denton HS students) or one group of four and two pairs (in the other two rooms).

Topics taught by the Denton High School students included the two-rook checkmate, the one-queen checkmate, and how to prevent Scholar’s Mate.
