Dear Neal Dow Students, Families and Friends:

Our school was broken into Sunday evening.  It was discovered early Monday morning by the custodian and it was reported to the Chico Police Department. We were notified and arrived early to see what could be done. Subsequently the police department arrived and did a thorough investigation. The classrooms had some limited vandalism and the front office was gone through. The teachers did a wonderful job of getting everything started for the day.

On the bright side everyone is safe and our great teachers and staff are keeping everything going smoothly.

Chico Unified Senior staff shared with us that they are hiring a Security Firm this week to patrol schools and that the Measure E School Improvement Bond has in the plan wiring for surveillance cameras and alarm systems. 

I will see you around the campus.

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.
