Principal's Message

Principal Andrews

Hello Korematsu families and welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! We are so excited to launch another year back on campus as we continue our mission to build community with our students, staff, and families.

Fred T. Korematsu serves the Mace Ranch neighborhood of Davis. With over 500 students in grades ranging from transitional kindergarten to sixth, our student population is representative of a diverse culture and community. In honor of Fred T. Korematsu, our school’s mission is rooted in social justice. This year, we are continuing to expand our social justice identity to be a prominent focal point of our educational program.

We will continue to place focus on educating the whole child this year. Through Multi-tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) staff will be implementing various strategies and systems to meet the needs of all individual learners. We will also be continuing our work in Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) as our P.A.W.S. behavior system rolls-out school-wide. Alongside these systems and programs, social-emotional learning will continue to be at the forefront of our mind with the implementation of Second Step curriculum in our classrooms.

Korematsu has a wonderful reputation of the power of inclusivity and equity as part of our learning model. On behalf of the staff, I can say that we are excited to continue that on that path for our students this year and for years to come.

I am thrilled to be with you again this year as your principal.

Laura Andrews, M.A.
