We’ll teach you everything you need to know.

Help Make the Yearbook Great
It’s 2019 and the yearbook is well underway. But we greatly need your help! So far, we have very few photos from the Korematsu community, and we could use many, many more!
Please send any photos of students or events to us using one of the methods below. We’d love to have at least 100 photos by the end of January, and we’re currently far, far short of that goal.
Two Ways to Send in Photos
Method #1 – Dropbox: The easiest way to send photos is using the Dropbox we have set up. Just upload photos to: https://www.dropbox.com/request/dmoKUQUIljZQ2Ov6yVKI
Method #2 – ReplayIt: Another 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. Plus, you can add photos whenever and wherever you have internet access, so it’s a great option for photos at events.
Order Your Yearbook Today Before the Price Goes Up
Right now, you can get a Korematsu Yearbook for $30. But the price goes up next month! So order your yearbook TODAY to get the lower price. https://www.jostens.com/apps/store/customer/1003883/Fred-T.-Korematsu-Middle-School/
After Feb 1, yearbooks will cost $40.
Add Special Recognition for Your Student
Want to add a personal message to your student in the yearbook? This year we are including special recognition ads, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the DECA club. These ads will appear in the back of each yearbook, letting you recognize the accomplishments of your child.
Visit the Korematsu store page on Jostens’ site to place your order. https://www.jostens.com/apps/store/customer/1003883/Fred-T.-Korematsu-Middle-School/
Note, too, that you can use the store link to order your yearbook.
Reserve Your Yearbook! Order Today!!
