Picture Retake Day

 Picture Retakes
October 25th




Dear Neal Dow Students, Families and Friends:

I would like invite the Neal Dow students, families and community members to

join us at our third annual Parade of Lights. We have had a great turn out the

last two years.

This event has been a lot of fun.

 I am willing to use my truck if we can find a trailer. I like having the trailer for

the Kindergartners and 1st graders to ride and it is fun to decorate with strings

of lights. 

Come walk with us, dress up as Wonders of the Wild and wear lights.  We will

need some creative minds to help decorating the morning of the 15th. 

More details to come soon. I am very excited to be participating in this years

Parade of Lights. 

Thank you all for your continued support for the finest school in Chico,

Mr. D. Murgia

California Distinguished Shool

Chess Club News

Neal Dow Elementary 

The Neal Dow Chess Team is up and running for the 2014-15 tournament season. Neal Dow Elementary currently has a chess team with 29 players who are representing all 7 grades of our school. We are one of approximately 12 north valley teams with almost 150 student competitors from schools as far north as Corning and as far south as Yuba City.  The Neal Dow team meets on Wednesdays after school until 3:20 to prepare for our monthly chess tournaments. If your child is interested in joining the team they need to contact Mr. Obe in room 4. The only requirement is that the student is able to play a chess game unassisted. There is also a small membership fee of $35. Scholarship opportunities are available for families with such a need.
