The Korematsu Parent Teacher Organization (KPTO) fosters relationships between parents, teachers, students, and staff and provides funding and volunteers to support academic and social growth for all students at Fred. T. Korematsu Elementary School at Mace Ranch.
Parents and teachers are encouraged to become members. All are welcome to attend meetings and to volunteer, only dues-paying members may vote or hold elective office. Dues are modest ($20 annually) and provide a core base of funding. KPTO is a is a 501(c)3 nonprofit (Federal TaxID #202323643) and donations are tax exempt.
We strongly urge all families to join the PTO, even if you are not able to volunteer. We are hoping for more than half of our families to join this year, and would love 100%. It really is a cheap and easy way to show your support!
