Dear Fillmore Parents and Students,
Welcome Back Fillmore Lions!
On behalf of Fillmore Elementary, it is my honor to welcome our students and families to the new 2021-2022 school year. We hope you had a safe and healthy summer break and enjoyed time with family. We also hope you are looking forward, along with us, to a new school year at Fillmore, and to a full return back in person.
As you remember, last year at this time we announced all students would remain on virtual learning. We stayed on virtual learning for nearly the entire school year. But due to a break-through vaccine rollout throughout the country, we are finally returning back to school in full capacity. Although our students will still be required to follow health safety guidelines and protocols such as mask wearing and social distancing, we are pleased to say Welcome Back Fillmore Students to a New School Year in Person!
Please be aware of Stockton Unified School District's safety mandate: Fillmore is a closed campus and parents will not be allowed to enter the school campus unless for a parent conference or meeting. I ask you for your cooperation and thank you in advance for your understanding to help ensure the safety of your children.
When we are permitted in the near future, I invite all parents to join us at all school activities and parent meetings. In the meantime, we will continue to hold virtual meetings and invite all parents to attend. Come to our monthly Coffee Hour meetings, English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) meetings, and the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) meetings. All meetings occur on the last Thursday of each month. In addition, we will host a variety of events that showcase the instruction in your child's classroom and their learning, such as Literacy and Science nights. There are many more activities planned for this school year, and we will keep you informed through our phone message system, our school website, and on our electronic billboard.
On behalf of our school staff, we will continue to provide your child with the very best educational experience here at Fillmore.
Ms. Thongthip Duangsawat, Principal
