WEMS hosts several programs that are available to
primary and elementary students for an additional charge.
Guitar, Piano and Violin lessons
Students have the opportunity to study piano
or guitar at school during the instructional day. These lessons are
offered by Dr.
David Esleck, faculty member at the University of Richmond and
elementary music teacher at WEMS.
Championship Chess presents a systematic, fun way to build chess
skills during chess instruction and while students play. Studies
show that chess improves math, reading and problem-solving and our
methods connect these academic benefits to our classes. Classes
include instruction as well as chess play and guided analysis.
