Dear Fillmore Parents and Students,
Welcome back to Fillmore Elementary School for the 2020-2021 school year! I am excited and looking forward to seeing our returning students and new students online with their new teachers. Ms. Duangsawat and I will be visiting our teachers' online classrooms and seeing our students engaging in their learning. For now, we will get to know one another through our virtual interactions in our students' classrooms.
Since we are unable to have meetings on campus or send home weekly newletters, I will use our school website as the main source of communication with parents and students. I am committed to keeping current information posted on our school website and maintaining a professional look to it as well. As many of our former and current students remember, I enjoy technology and will use my skills to maintain current information posted on Fillmore's website, and improve the look and communication of our website for the benefit of our Fillmore parents and students.
Similar to last year, I will help coordinate our English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) meetings. Last year we held five ELAC meetings prior to the COVID-19 stay at home order! Our meetings were engaging and informative. Our first meeting had over 40 parents present. We made classroom visits to view instruction with the new curriculum. We circulated a survey to elicit parent opinions on how to improve student attendance and student achievement. I am committed to building upon our successes in ELAC for our new school year.
I will also continue providing support to our parents as well. Many of our parents and students have come to our school office with tech issues. Between Mr. Rafael Avila and I, we will provide you tech support onsite so that you do not need to contact our district tech support. Please come to the school office with your questions if you choose, or call me here at the school. I am more than happy to take your call.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come to me. I am here to serve you and our school community.
Mr. Larry Hernandez
