With the holidays fast approaching, now is a great time to reserve a yearbook for your child. Until Jan 31, you can get a Korematsu Yearbook for $35, after which the price rises to $40! So order your yearbook TODAY to get the lower price. https://www.jostens.com/apps/store/customer/1003883/Fred-T.-Korematsu-Middle-School/
=== Send Us Your Photos ===
We greatly need your help! So far, we have very few photos from the Korematsu community, and we could use many, many more! Our yearbook staff would love to include your photos in this year’s book! Share your pix with us ASAP. The easiest way to send photos is using the Dropbox we have set up. Just upload photos to:
=== Add Special Recognition for Your Student! ===
Want to add a personal message to your student in the yearbook? This year we are including special recognition ads, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the DECA club. These ads will appear in the back of each yearbook, letting you recognize the accomplishments of your child.
Visit the Korematsu store page on Jostens’ site to place your order. https://www.jostens.com/apps/store/customer/1003883/Fred-T.-Korematsu-Middle-School/
Note, too, that you can use the store link to order your yearbook.
