Anderson Munger Family YMCA breaks ground

On January 31, 2013 Charles H. Kim Elementary was proud to host the groundbreaking ceremony for the Anderson Munger Family YMCA, currently under construction right next door to the school.

The Multi-Purpose Room was filled to capacity, where guests heard speeches by YMCA officials, representatives from the Anderson and Munger families, community leaders, and Councilman Tom LaBonge.

Principal Kehrley has established a strong relationship with the YMCA, and Charles H. Kim students are already benefiting from physical educational classes taught by YMCA personnel–thanks again to the generosity of the Anderson and Munger families.

We look forward to many years of strong collaboration between the Y and our school!

$25,000 gift for computer lab

The Charles H. Kim Education Fund was thrilled to receive a generous $25,000 donation from BBCN Bank to upgrade the school’s computer lab. Thus, the “adoption” of Charles H. Kim Elementary by BBCN has taken hold in a significant way. Teachers and students are thrilled to have computers that now work properly.

The dedication of the new lab will take place on February 14, 2013. What better Valentine’s Day gift to all of our deserving students and teachers?

The entire Charles H. Kim community extends heartfelt thanks to BBCN Bank for their generosity and commitment to the school.
