Korematsu “RECLASSIFIED” Students Celebrated at Richmond Auditorium!
Congrats to our newly “Reclassified” students! For those that aren’t familiar with “Reclassification,” these students were English Language Learners and tonight they were “Reclassified” to proficient English speakers! They’ve mastered both academic and conversational English and have met the state and district criteria for fluent English proficiency. It’s a lot of work! We are very proud of their achievements!! And, congratulations and thanks Ms. Soto, their teacher, who works tirelessly with them. We love you!

GOOD WORK COMMUNITY!
THANK YOU FOR STEPPING UP!
WE STILL NEED YOU!
THIS WEEK’S DIRE NEED IS….. BAND
Great work community, and THANK YOU ALL for stepping up. We were able to fill many key positions last week. We are looking much better for next year. We are still in dire need of Band Parents. The Korematsu Music Parents group runs as a large “committee” under the Korematsu PTSA. As many of you know, we have an elaborate music program run by ONE PERSON (Tiffany) on a completely anemic budget. She needs help!
That’s where you come in. The Korematsu Music Parents group provides volunteer labor and some funding for our amazing program. We provide many of the extras that we need to run this program. We provide volunteers for concerts and events, printing of programs, funding for reeds, sheet music, musical instruments and more.
Please consider stepping up for one of these positions. It is really important!

NEW TECHNOLOGY COMING!
This summer, the District is purchasing and/or refurbishing all student tablets. In August students will return to newer, faster and more secure devices! YAY!
In order to accomplish this, all student tablets will be collected before the last day of school on June 7th. (Your principal or school administration team will communicate the specific collection plan for your particular school.)
Remind your student to prepare for collection with this one step:
● If there are files stored on the tablet’s hard drive or their H:\ drive, please remind your student to move those files to Google Drive before tablet collection, so that they can be accessed from the new device. Once tablets are collected, anything stored on the hard drive of the computer will not be retrievable. Some computers will be retired and some will be completely refurbished. Your student will not get the same machine back.
● Students will take a tablet home if they have an IEP that specifically calls for a tablet.
● Summer schools will have devices. Seniors doing independent study will be able to take them home.
Thanks for your support in the transition!
¡YA VIENE LA NUEVA TECNOLOGÍA!
Este verano, el Distrito comprará y/o renovará todas las computadoras portátiles (tabletas) para estudiantes. ¡En agosto, los estudiantes contarán con dispositivos más nuevos, más rápidos y más seguros! ¡HURRA!
Para lograr esto, todas las computadoras (tabletas) de los estudiantes se recogerán antes del último día de clases el viernes 7 de junio; (el director o el personal de administración de su escuela le comunicarán el plan de recolección específico para su escuela en particular).
Recuérdele a su hijo/a que se prepare para la recolección haciendo lo siguiente:
● Si hay archivos almacenados en la memoria de la computadora o en su unidad H: /, recuérdele a su hijo/a que transfiera esos archivos a la Unidad Google antes de la colección de las computadoras, para que pueda tener acceso a estos archivos desde el nuevo dispositivo. Una vez que se recojan las tabletas, cualquier cosa almacenada en la memoria de la computadora no se podrá recuperar. Algunas computadoras serán retiradas y otras serán completamente renovadas. Su hijo/a no obtendrá la misma computadora de vuelta.
Además debe saber lo siguiente:
● Los estudiantes llevarán una computadora (tableta) a casa si tienen un Programa Individualizado de Educación (IEP) que específicamente requiere del uso de una tableta.
● Las escuelas en las cuales se realizará el programa de verano tendrán dispositivos. Los estudiantes de doceavo grado que realicen estudios independientes podrán llevar las computadoras a casa.
