The PTA is holding a fundraiser until February 28th to raise money for field trips. We are asking all parents to donate what they can, and place either cash or check in the donation box on the counter in the school office. Envelopes are provided next to the box. Please make checks payable to Micheltorena PTA. If you would like to mail in your contribution, please send it to: Micheltorena PTA, 1511 Micheltorena St. LA, CA 90026
All funds raised will go to pay for buses for our field trips. Our goal is to raise $6000 by the end of the month!! Parents and the PTA have already raised $2000. We can do it! Look for the “thermometer” in the entrance hallway that will track our progress!
Thank you for your support! When we meet our goal, we will celebrate!

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!!
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.
Our reading mentor program, Reading Eagles, meets in our school library every Monday and Wednesday from 7:20-7:50am. Parents and children are welcome to come and read with us! Read more about this program by clicking on the “Reading Eagles” link on the left on this page.
Every Thursday in October 2012 and November 2012 Dr. Raymundo Berdugo will be covering health topics pertinent to 4th graders’ understanding. California state standards are addressed in class. These classes are held in the school auditorium and are immediately made more relevant by having a medical professional disseminate the information. Children are not only ‘glued’ to what Dr. Berdugo teaches but enjoy getting their questions answered and clarified.
