    Fillmore's "Back to School Night" On Tuesday, August 11th Was a Big Success! (updated 8-21-20  3:05 pm, with Title 1 Presentation in Spanish)

    Dear Fillmore students and parents,

    This school year, Fillmore's "Back to School Night" was held "online" on Tuesday, August 11, 2020 from 4:30 - 6:00 pm.  We had many parents log on with their children's Chromebooks and join in on many of the various Zoom/Google Meeting meetings.  It was outstanding to see so many parents and students see and hear Ms. Duangsawat, Principal's Title I presentation, and then log on to their grade-level Zoom meeting to hear presentations from their teachers.

    We hope next year's Back-to-School will be in-person and will allow parents to, once again, come on to the Fillmore campus and meet in-person with their child's teacher.

    To hear the Title I Presentation in English, CLICK HERE to see and hear the video presented in English with Ms. Duangsawat.
