What's New




Dear Neal Dow Students, Families and Friends:

It feels like we might have a real winter on our hands.

I wanted to share with you; Neal Dow is having a couple of fundraisers. The first is coming up on Thursday, November 12th at the Madison Bear Garden from 5-10pm. If you go get a burger the Bear is donating a dollar of the purchase to our school. It is very generous. So in the words of one of our great teachers, "Let's get our burger on!" The second fundraiser is Chico Bags. The fifth and sixth graders will be selling these fantastic, attractive bags to help pay the cost of the Shady Creek Outdoor School trip. These bags have become important with the ban on plastics in Chico. I use the bags I bought last year every time I go to a store and I plan on buying a few more this year as Christmas presents.

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.
