Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year. We are starting this year off in a distance learning model. Although it is not how I envisioned starting the school year, our staff has been working tirelessly all summer to make the year a successful one for each of our students. During this time, communication is key to help with the success of our students. Please make sure to reach out to your child’s teacher as we navigate through distance learning for the fall.

Fred T. Korematsu Elementary School is located in the Mace Ranch neighborhood of Davis and serves approximately 500 students from transitional kindergarten through sixth grade. Our students come from a variety of backgrounds and cultures; we currently have 24 languages spoken at Korematsu! Our staff works closely with parents, community members, and UC Davis students to bring innovative learning practices to the site. Korematsu has an active PTO that works hard to support students in various enrichment activities during and after school such as bringing hands-on science to primary aged students, choir, Girls on the Run, chess club, to name a few. Although we are not currently able to do some of our in person enrichment activities, the PTO is working with staff to find other ways to creatively meet the needs of our students.

Here at Korematsu, we focus on the whole child to support the many different social, emotional, and academic needs of our students. We believe in creating an inclusive environment that focuses on the uniqueness of each child. Our staff is experienced and extremely dedicated to the current and future success of each student who comes through Korematsu.



I am honored to be the principal of Korematsu and look forward to when we will be back in person at the school site.



Sincerely,



Diana Curtaz
