I want to thank Azad's Martial Arts for sponsoring our entry fee and Dragon Graphics for donating the fantastic banner.

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.
