Dear Korematsu Families:

This last week, Ms. Kerin Kelleher served as Principal at Korematsu. Ms. Kelleher most recently retired as Principal at Harper JHS and was also Vice Principal at Harper. Prior to her time at Harper she taught English and was Vice Principal at Holmes Junior High. Ms. Kelleher and I have been in close contact all week and we will share administrative duties during the week of March 14-18. We have both enjoyed getting to know your students and working with the Korematsu Team the last two weeks. Below I am sharing some news and updates
