activities. If you would like to donate to the fund, simply send
us a check made out to “Friends of Matsuyama”. If you have
something specific in mind, please call our principal and maybe
she can give you some ideas.

Thank you to all of the families that participated in the
Raley’s/Bel Air program. The Friends of Matsuyama fund
received approximately $2000 last year. Because Raley’s/Bel
Air changed their program from the Quality of Life card to the
new Something Extra card, you must go to the Something Extra
website and designate Matsuyama as your recipient. Even if
you participated last year, you must re-designate our school.
