It really does take a village!
Thank you to all that played a role in Celebrate Korematsu. Whether you set up, broke down, cooked, cleaned, donated an item, solicited an item, transported equipment, watched kids in between sets, sold tickets, listened to the kids while they practiced, and more, we thank you deeply. This truly is a community effort, and we deeply appreciate your efforts.
Right now, unofficial results put us at $20,000 gross. We’ll report again when we have it all accounted for. THANK YOU AGAIN!!

Parents and guardians, please join Tanise Smith for our Parent University classes. The curriculum is based upon the California State PTA’s wildly popular and research and data-driven “School Smarts.” This is an opportunity for you to learn how the school system works, and how you can best support your child. Even those of you that think you know will come away with new knowledge. And knowledge empowers us!
