  • Korematsu Student Wins Middle School Spelling Bee

    Righteous has three definitions according to Merriam-Webster. And if Korematsu’s Ghouran Chang used it in a sentence, it might go something like this: I capped a righteous win at the West Contra Costa County Unified School District Middle School Spelling Bee by correctly spelling the two-syllable adjective.

Principal's Update

    Posted by L. Renee Lama at 5/23/2017

    Hello Junior Titan Families

    Sixth Grade:

    We will be going on a picnic at Refugio Valley Park on Friday. This is a big undertaking and we are grateful to have our parents doing the majority of the planning. If you are a badged volunteer and would like to support us by walking along, chaperoning at the park, or supporting clean up, please contact Ms. Chen. We are asking that our 6th grade student not bring a heavy backpack that day. Since we will be walking to the park and back here and many backpacks do not fit in their lockers. Students will only be attending classes for periods 1 – 3.

    Walking trip forms were sent home yesterday and today, so please ask your child if they haven’t given it to you. We will be taking donations of water cookies or chips. Please send them labeled 6th grade picnic to the office, please no nut products.

    Students should be prepared with sunscreen and a hat, since we are outside. They may bring a blanket to sit on if they wish. They will be responsible for their own belongings at the park. If you child has the 6th grade t ’shirt please have them wear it. They may also wear Titan colors, we will be taking a picture at the park.

    Seventh Grade:

    We will be hosting a nacho movie party for our 7th grade students on May 30th. If you are the parent of a 7th grader at our school, please consider coming down and helping with this activity.

    Eighth Grade:

    Information about our end of the year activities is coming remember, we will have a dance, a breakfast, a picnic, yearbook signing, and recognition night event. A connect ed message will be sent out soon.

    All Students:

    Please remind your child to be on their very best behavior for the remainder of the school year. On June 1, we will be hosting a HMS carnival from 2:30 to 6:30. This event will raise money to support our arts program at the school. We are asking for help as always with set up, clean up and or working our many booths. Family and friends are welcome at this end of the year event.

     

    I’m looking for a group of 10 to 20 parents of mixed grade levels to participate in a focus group. The group will provide me with valuable information about their personal experiences with the school and our flow of information. The goal is to have discussion items to bring to a full staff discussion about what things we can do to improve our home to school and school to home communication. This group would meet once for a two hour meeting on a Saturday June 3 beginning at 10:00 a.m. in room 513. If you are interested, please let me know. As always, thank you for your consideration.

    Monday May 29 is a school holiday, classes will resume on Tuesday at 8:15.

    Thank you everyone, Have a wonderful day and stay Titan Strong.

    Hello Junior Titan Families

    Testing is over!  Our kids were awesome and staff did a wonderful job facilitating the very different type of testing, so, props.  I look forward to seeing our results and sharing them with you. 

    8th grade t-shirts have been given to students, they look amazing. If your child has the bundle, make sure they came and picked up their shirts.  We still have several who haven’t gotten their shirts Please have them come and get their shirts tomorrow.  Ms. Chen can check the list.  We are still taking preorders for 6th and 7th grade shirts.  The early orders for 6th grade should arrive sometime next week.

    I’m looking for a group of 10 to 20 parents of mixed grade levels to participate in a focus group.  The group will provide me with valuable information about their personal experiences with the school and our flow of information.  The goal is to have discussion items to bring to a full staff discussion about what things we can do to improve our home to school and school to home communication.  This group would meet once for a two hour meeting on a Saturday May 6 beginning at 10:00 a.m.  It is not a group where you will come and list your grievances. It will be a group of parents who can support me in coming up with realist suggestions about things that parent, administration, staff and teachers could do to make things better for children.  If you are interested, please send me an email at llama@wccusd.net, let me know the grade level of your child.  As always, thank you for your consideration. 

    Thank you everyone, Have a wonderful day and stay Titan Strong.
