Principal's Weekly Message- February 2, 2024

Campus Updates & Reminders:

Do you have a new TK or Kindergartner starting next year? Do you know someone in your neighborhood that does? It’s time to start thinking about enrollment and come to our annual TK/K information night! Join us on February 20 at 6:00pm in the MPR to hear about the programs, tour classrooms, and talk to the teachers. This is for new, incoming TK and Kindergarten students only. If your child is currently enrolled in this year’s TK/K program, they will automatically be enrolled into next year’s classes.

Girls on the Run (GOTR) is returning for another season at Korematsu Elementary! GOTR is a program for 3rd-5th grade girls which inspires participants of all abilities to recognize their individual strengths while building a sense of connection in a team setting.

Yee haw! We are so excited about the auction, but we are in need of 10-15 volunteers to help with getting the items needed to make the auction a fun and successful event. This task can be done on your own time and is mostly emailing businesses asking for donations. You can do as little as 10, or as many as you desire! 

If you would like to help with this fun event in any capacity, sign up here:

Do you own a business and want to sponsor or donate? Do you have a vacation rental, season tickets, etc. Would you be willing to donate for our live auction big ticket item? If so, please email ashley[email protected].
