Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year. I am excited to have our students and staff back in-person at Korematsu this year. Although we are back to normal with our bell schedule, we will still be practicing social distancing, mask-wearing, and regular hand washing at all grade levels to support in keeping our students safe. 


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. 


This year we are excited to continue to focus on creating a welcoming classroom and school environment where everyone belongs. We will continue with our training in Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS), and are working to refine our Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) which works to support all students both academically and socially. 


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 a successful school year for all students, staff, and family.


Sincerely,


Diana Curtaz
