Picture Retake Day

October 25th




Dear Neal Dow Students, Families and Friends:
It is the time of year that I ask our Neal Dow families to share with us how their school experience has been going this year.  In the past we have sent home a survey for parents to fill out and return. This year we are doing it online.
I have a few options for completing this survey:
First parents can click on this website. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/EFF_PAR_ChicoUSD_NealDow and complete the survey
Second, parents can type the website URL in their device and take the survey.
Third , parents can come to school   starting next week, the 27th, and use a chromebook in room 16 when you drop off your child.
I appreciate all feedback. I will use it to improve. I believe if I am not trying to improve I am not thinking about it hard enough.

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

Mr. D. Murgia

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.
