For November and December, Friends of Micheltorena would like to remind everyone about the Shop and Earn with Amazon. Remember that by clicking on the “Shop Amazon” link from our website, we can earn 0.5% through Amazon Smile and 4.5% or more through the Amazon Associates program. This higher earning percentage is only available if you click on or bookmark the link from our website.
Better yet, if you sign up for a FREE 30 day trial for Amazon Prime, Micheltorena will make $3 per sign up and you will get free two day shipping from Amazon this holiday season. Consider signing up on Black Friday to get the online deals and have shipping available up through Christmas Eve. Amazon Prime shipping has saved many Christmas’s by getting that last forgotten gift delivered on time. Prime also comes with a number of other free benefits like Prime Video.
If you already have and love Prime, consider buying an Amazon Prime Gift membership. Micheltorena will receive $5 per gift membership purchased through this link.
Want something completely free that you don’t have to cancel? Download the free Kindle reading app through this link and Micheltorena will earn $3 per download. Don’t need a kindle reading app? Maybe download anyway to earn money for your school!
Additionally for extra reminders and inspiration, we will be showing amazon ads on our site for the next month. Happy Holidays to all, and to all have fun shopping!

We’re so happy to announce the return of classes in our wonderful outdoor classroom.
All classes will receive 6 weeks of interdisciplinary garden based education connected to the NGSS science standards. During the Fall semester, our 3rd-5th graders will be working in the garden. During the Spring semester our K-2nd graders will be working in the garden. These lessons will be taught by our Garden Ranger from Enrich LA. The ranger program encourages parents, teachers, students, and community involvement. Our Ranger will also blog about their work with our students weekly so parents can see what the school garden is up to and get involved! We also have a volunteer-based Parent Ranger, Lois Tryk, and our community garden coordinator, Leyna Lightman, to support engaging parents in our garden program.
Thank you for your contributions to FOM, which fund this program.
