Please join our PTSA. We came out of registration light with less than 100 members. Last year, we had more than 300 members. Please join our association and donate to our organization if you can. We do amazing work on campus, and we really do support the school. We are your forum for school concerns and communications, we organize all the school volunteers, and we raise and spend $40,000 per year on programs that the school and district cannot afford. Our suggested donation is $100. We humbly and gratefully accept donations at any level. PTSA Memberships are $15.00 each.

DONATE TO SUPPORT PROGRAMS
We make a real difference in the programs and services that can be offered at Korematsu. We spend more than $40,000 per year on many campus extras. We’ve employed a math tutor, we’ve paid for the track, cross country and drama programs. We’ve paid for field trips. Every teacher at Korematsu gets $400 to spend on classroom supplies. If every family gave $100, we’d have more than enough to provide for our needs. You can set up monthly donations using the Paypal link on our website: www.korematsumiddleschool.org
