Principal's Weekly Message- December 1, 2023

Campus Updates & Reminders:

Traveling for the holidays? Don't fall behind. We know that this time of year brings extra travel for many families and this means that students may have to miss school. Short-term independent study (STIS) is available for students who know in advance that they will be absent for three+ school days, and enables the student to stay current with coursework provided by their teacher(s). For more information on STIS, please visit the District website

PTO Message:

Yearbooks are on sale now! You can order at and enter our school code: 718507. Purchase before 1/1/24 for $27. After that, the cost will increase to $30.

The Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT), the nation’s largest touring children’s theatre. A tour team will arrive in their “little red truck” loaded with a set, lights, costumes, props and make-up, everything it takes to put on a play…except the cast. The 2 person Missoula team holds an open audition and casts 50-60 students to perform in the production. The show is rehearsed throughout the week and the public performance on that Saturday. This year's production will be Beauty Lou and the Country Beast and will be the week of January 8th -13th. Auditions for the Missoula Children's Theater and Korematsu Elementary's production will be Monday, January 8th in the MPR at 3:45. 

We need your help! We are looking for someone to host the directors to save on hotel fees ($1,500). If you are interested and have 2 extra rooms or have a connection at a local (ish) hotel. Please email Ashley at [email protected]
