Congratulations to Ms. Vargas’ 6th grade class for taking the second place prize (and $750!) in Environment California’s first-ever “Sunlight. Camera. Action” video contest, where contestants submitted two-minute videos to make the case for Los Angeles to become a world-class solar leader.  See their video below!  A school-wide assembly was held on Friday, November 2 at 1:30pm in the auditorium where the class was presented with its prize from Environment California. Great job, 6th graders!!

Second Annual Great Pumpkin Fest was awesome!

Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate at the Second Annual Great Pumpkin Festival last Saturday. It was a lot of fun, with a super lineup of local bands, delicious food, games, garden tours and a haunted house.  The Micheltorena PTA raised over $3000 to support school field trips and other activities!  Dozens of parents came out to volunteer their help, and a big thanks goes out to teachers Mr. Moreno, Mr. Hummer, Mr. Carrillo, Ms. Williams and Community Rep Peter Valverde who came in to volunteer on their day off to make the day a great success.
