March-a-thon 2019 is in the record books, but we are still taking pledges through March 31st!
You can PLEDGE ONLINE HERE, or drop off your donations at the school office.

Schedule of Events:
This event is a fundraiser and celebration of good health and an active lifestyle. All students will walk a course around the perimeter of the school and are recognized for going the distance.
March-a-Thon is one of our school’s largest fundraisers. Funds raised help Friends of Micheltorena pay for things like school supplies, teacher’s aides, campus beautification and our PE program.
Let’s work together to reach our goal of $40k. Last year we raised $25,700. Let’s see what we can do this year!
Please SPREAD the word to your fellow Michel parents who may be too busy to read the emails, and friends of Michel and family who may not know about the March-a-Thon.
Remember that strike? Let’s come together again and show support for our school ‘cause we all know there just isn’t enough funding for all the great things we want our kids to have access to, such as arts programs, teacher aides, a beautiful campus, classroom reading and writing materials. So we need to dig deep and help out as a team. So REGISTER ONLINE TODAY and get those contributions in!
1) Go HERE to register online, set up your child’s fundraising page, and send out ready-made emails to family and friends. It’s fast and easy!
2) If you wanna be old-school, grab your March-a-thon envelope and script and knock on your neighbors’ doors for cash and check donations that you can bring with you on March 10!
3) Use social media! Your friends want to support your kids. Post your child’s fundraising page link on to FB and Instagram.
Sign up HERE to help us make the event fun and safe!
This event is great fun for the kids, but it’s also one of the best events each year for parents and families to chat over coffee while the kids are taking their laps around the school. We need help to make it all run smoothly:
- cheering on the kids and checking off their laps
- making sure kids are hydrated and getting their treats for reaching lap milestones
- setting up the course and breaking it down
- selling Bake Sale goods and Michel merchandise
So join up with your bestie, your partner, that awesome school friend you never get to see anymore, and sign up for a shift at our SignUp Genius page.
AFTER PARTY!!! EAT, DRINK and KNOW you’re supporting your school:
Three local businesses are stepping up to support March-a-thon – and all you have to do is eat and drink yummy stuff. Easy, right?!
*Haché will donate 15% of their sales on March 10! After working up a sweat, you can head over for gourmet hamburgers, wine, and beer.
*Diablo will donate 10% of their sales on March 10. Feast on scrumptious tacos, slake your thirst with beer or sangria, and support your school.
AND…Naturewell is going EVEN further by donating 10% of sales during the ENTIRE MARCHATHON WEEKEND (3/8 to 3/10). If you want delicious, organic smoothies and 100% natural juices, this is your place. They will have a sign-in sheet on the counter to track all sales to Micheltorena families.
Now let’s get marching!
*Please note that during these special promotions, Haché and Diablo will not be providing FOMO card discounts. Instead, they will be donating that money to the school.
