50 IN 50

annual-giving5
We have only 16 days left in the PTSA Annual Giving Campaign and are just over 35% of the way towards our goal of $50,000. Many thanks to the families who have already participated!

We encourage every family to donate whatever amount they are comfortable with. Making our goal is important but knowing that we, the Korematsu families, are ALL committed to helping our students achieve is also important.

If 50% of Korematsu families contribute, we will give students an ice cream party! If we hit 75%, we will give them a pizza party! For more information on what your PTSA supports see our flyer. Every donation is gratefully appreciated, so donate now! Also, please consider copying this message into an email to friends and family members. Or, share our flyer with others. Every donation helps!
