IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YEARBOOKS!
Thanks to Korematsu’s DECA club for helping guide the 2018-2019 yearbook. These students have contributed ideas and photographs, made key decisions, and added energy and enthusiasm. But we still need your help! The more photos the Korematsu community provides, the better our yearbook! If you have photos of students or events please send them to us using one of the methods below. We need lots of photos soon to make our first Jostens deadline next week, so don’t delay, send them in today!
TWO WAYS TO SEND IN PHOTOS!
One easy way to send photos is to use Jostens’ mobile app called ReplayIt! Just download the app to your phone or tablet, select Korematsu as your school, then add photos. https://www.replayit.com/#/home
A cool thing about ReplayIt is that your photos (once approved by Jostens) will appear on the web site. You can also use this link to upload photos from your computer.
An alternate method of submitting photos is to use the Dropbox we have set up. Just upload photos to: https://www.dropbox.com/request/dmoKUQUIljZQ2Ov6yVKI
