Tom Matsumoto is implementing a wonderful program for our students called Saturday Academy! Saturday Academy provides enrichment opportunities for all students while allowing our students to make-up missed days of attendance. Missed days of school also result in lost revenue to our schools.

We are excited to announce that the Board has approved Matsumoto's Kindergarten Expansion. We will be renovating Rooms 4 and 5 to expand the classrooms to meet school compliance and also to add a new Kindergarten playground, tables, and awning structure. From now until May 15th, our school will be under construction. Since the fence area is tight between Room 7-12, we ask that parents wait at the top of the stairs in the front parking lot for students to exit. Please ask your child to meet you at the top of the stairs in the front parking lot or a different location of the school. If you need to walk down the stairs to find your child, please wait until foot traffic has lessen. Thank you in advance for your patience as we get this project underway.
