It’s a WRAP!
THANK YOU to all of our volunteers, our outgoing 8th grade parents, the boards of our PTSA and Korematsu’s Music Parents Association. We couldn’t have done it without you. Whether you volunteered in classrooms, volunteered for an extracurricular, worked for the WriterCoach Connection, went on a field trip, contributed to Teacher Treat Day, worked on the yearbook, volunteered for one of our band programs, coached sports, or helped your child with homework, you made (and make) our school a better place. We can never say enough good things about this kind, caring and generous community. We are very lucky!
Good luck to our 8th graders as you move on to high school. We are expecting great things from you, and know you will change your communities and the world for the better!!
Oh yeah…. the first day of school is Monday, August 19, 2019! It is a minimum day.
We will publish registration and incoming 7th grade information very shortly. We do publish over the summer.

You leave a better school behind. We thank you for your inspiration and the way you’ve touched us all. Your new school is lucky to have you. We wish you well. Stay in touch!
