ptsa-giving-header-1

It’s time to show you care about public education, which is still underfunded in California. Please donate to our Annual Giving Campaign 2016. Our goal is to raise $50,000 by December 16 to support programs that will help our students. Your contribution will help pay for much-needed extras such as a math tutor for enrichment, remedial, and after school homework help, classroom grants for 31 teachers, library books, paper, assemblies, and more. Every little bit counts. 55 cents a day would amount to almost $100 over the course of our school year. And if every family donates $100 or more, we would surpass our fundraising goal.

WELCOME AND WELCOME BACK!

welcomeAnother school year is round the corner. The Korematsu PTSA is here to help you navigate middle school. We also work closely with school administration to organize programs and events that support student success.

FIRST DAY!
School begins Monday, August 22nd

First Bell rings at 8:10 a.m.  It is a Minimum Day.  School ends at 1:25 p.m.

SCHEDULES, ID’s 
Schedules given out at orientation were draft schedules. There could be changes. There will be lists posted around the school and also adults standing around campus holdings lists, directing students to their first period class. Once they are in their first period class, they will get a copy of their official schedule.If a student was unable to come and get their ID picture taken prior to the first day of school, they need to go to class and we will make an announcement letting them know when they can come to get their ID. This will NOT be done on the first day.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

  1. School ID on lanyard.
  2. Map of campus.
  3. Sharpened pencils and erasers (mistakes OK!!).
  4. Lunch or meal card or cash to purchase.
  5. Binder with paper inside.
  6.   Backpack to hold it all!
  7.   Some returning students report they used a composition book for each class. You may need a 5-tab binder with pockets to hold handouts.  Teachers will tell students what is required for class.If you buy ahead, save the receipt in case a teacher changes it up.
  8. You do not change for P.E. on the first day.

DROP OFFS AND PICK UPS
Drive around the school in a clockwise direction.  Drop and pick up students at the marked, designated areas on Norvell and Lawrence.  For student safety, and to improve traffic flow, drop students on the school side of the street.  Please refrain from dropping students directly in front of the school on Donal Avenue.  In the mornings and afternoons, Donal Avenue is used by AC Transit and other buses, therefore, it must be kept clear so that the buses can make their stops.

student drop off and pick up

Parking
There is no parking on the school side of Donal Avenue. The school side of Donal Avenue must be kept clear for AC Transit and other bus use.  Please park legally on Lawrence, Gladys or Norvell Streets.

AC Transit
AC Transit runs dedicated routes to and from Richmond.  These routes run only on school days Monday to Friday and the schedules are timed to match the hours of local schools and operate only when schools are in session.  Even though these buses are specific to school schedules, they are open to all passengers at regular fare.

Registration Update … Location Change, Immunizations… More!

REGISTRATION UPDATE

LOCATION CHANGE

Registration has moved to the MPR!

Apologies for the change in location, but this is our first event on the new campus! After analyzing flow, we think we’ll have a much more efficient and positive experience in the MPR.

Enter at the Lawrence Street or Donal Avenue entrances.
Registration has moved to the MPR!

PE CLOTHES

PE Clothes are $22. $11 for the top, and $11 for the bottom. Cash only.  However, if you don’t like ours, and because we are a public school, you do not need to buy them from us.  Any plain grey top/short combination as pictured above will suffice as long as it allows for easy movement.

PE Clothes PE Clothes

IMMUNIZATION RECORDS

We realize the notice is short….if all incoming 7th graders can bring immunization records, it would be very helpful.  There are new laws in effect this year and the Tdap shot is required among others. Eventually, if records are not received, your child will not be allowed to attend class.  If you can bring them, great.  If not, additional communication will go out about the new law and the new immunization needs.

MAKE-UP REGISTRATION

JUST COME ON IN!

Thank you all for calling!  Due to the overwhelming number of people that are unable to make the August 9th-11th dates, please come to the Main Office August 15-19 anytime between 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. There is no need to set an appointment.  It is our preference for you to come in before school begins, because learning begins on the first day.  But, if you absolutely can’t come before the first day, there will be plenty of staff on hand to direct students to their first class and coordinate student schedule pick-up. Announcements will be made during school.  Don’t worry!  Everyone will find their way!
