The Hillside Natural Area and Ohlone Greenway as valued recreation amenities that are unique to El Cerrito
Improved general maintenance in the City’s parks and recreation facilities
Pedestrian access throughout the City’s parks and recreation network – walking, hiking and biking
A Senior Center as an important recreation amenity

8th Grade Promotion Activities
Dear Korematsu Families,
Can you believe we only have 7 weeks until graduation? This year has zoomed by!
Graduation is a special time for 8th grade families. Many of them move on together to El Cerrito High, and some fly off to other schools, so for our 8th graders, the graduation commencement events are vastly important.
That being said, we can not pull off all the activities without your help!
There are 3 events that need 7th AND 8th grade families to help with. We have included a link to a google doc that you can sign up.
The events are as follows:
1. Promotion practice: Before the picnic, parents are needed to help organize and supervise the 8th graders as they practice for the promotion ceremony.
2. Help with the 8th grade picnic: This happens prior to the kids vs. teachers softball game. We have 3 point persons already and need people to sign ups for food, set-up, clean-up etc. BOTH 7th & 8th Grade families can help!
3. Graduation: This is a huge event where the kids cross the stage. Tradition has been 7th grade families sign up to help with some of the larger day of jobs so 8th grade families can watch their babies cross the stage! Then next year, we continue that tradition and you get to sit back and watch your babies cross the stage!
There are other day/night-of items for 8th grade families as well as a sign-up to help order, pick-up & deliver appetizers, drinks & desserts to the school.
Please note there are 3 tabs on the sign up sheet!
WE NEED YOU! We cannot do this without your help!
