Holiday Program December 10

The Micheltorena student body shone brightly at the Holiday Program this past Friday, December 10.  With the orchestra led by Mr. Stolmack, and the choruses led by Mr. Bockelman (not to mention some really fun dance numbers in between!) the program was a rousing tribute to the holiday season.

Pyjamarama Family Reading Night, December 9

Micheltorena students, parents and teachers came out with pillows, blankets and their finest pyjamas for a fun reading night in the auditorium this past Thursday.

Parents Candace Ryan, Peter Healey and Hector Blanco all put on a great show as they read to the children in 30 minute shifts.  Teachers Mr. Hummer, Carillo and Moreno joined in the fun as well, with Mr. Hummer regaling the group with poems by Christina Rosetti and his furry bear slippers, and Mr. Moreno manning the bookmark making table.  Mr. Carillo acted as co-host, and sported his Cat-in-the-Hat hat!

Parent Candace Ryan reads from her own book, "Animal House."
