It's that time again...Back to School time!

Whew, did summer fly by at light speed or what?  And we've been busy at the Friends of Fillmore Arts Center.  We have dotted every i and crossed the last t on our fantastic, new website and are now ready for the BIG reveal!  Please check us out at www.friendsoffillmore.org 

Also, make sure to forward this email or our web link to your fellow parents and Fillmore lovers who we may not have on our mailing list yet.  They can sign up by using the "Subscribe" link in the upper lefthand side of the home page.

On our site, you can...
  • Donate quickly and easily via PayPal AND Great News!!  The Cafritz Foundation match is STILL in effect, so if you procrastinated just a bit with your donation to keep our kids in glue, paint, glitter, clay, field trips, and visiting artists for another year, don't worry, you still can.  But please, make your tax-deductible donation TODAY!
  • Stay on top of upcoming Fillmore event dates by using our Calendar page
  • Help us by participating as a Friends of Fillmore Board rep for your home school.  All our pending Board meeting dates can be found there!
Go Green AND Give to Fillmore!
Another exciting opportunity is that the Friends of Fillmore has teamed up with Clean Currents.  For every PEPCO customer who changes their power usage to clean wind energy from now until Earth Day, 2012 (April 22nd) Clean Currents will make a $25 donation to the Friends of Fillmore.  Then, we'll use the money to purchase environmentally-friendly art supplies for our kids.  It is definitely a win-win!  A cleaner tomorrow and a more creative, colorful today.  Just go to Clean Currents and refer to Friends of Fillmore when you sign up. 

Questions?? Just take a look at this flier for more details.

Upcoming Events at Fillmore
  • See what your kids are making at our Fillmore Open Houses! The events will take place 10-11am and 1-2pm, Fri., Oct. 21st and Mon.-Thurs., Oct. 24-27th.  Visitors are welcome at any time during the open house hours.  Check to see when your child comes to Fillmore.
  • Get in on the action yourself at "Be an Artist" Night! Wednesday, November 9th from 6-8:30pm
As the Board Chair for the Friends of Fillmore I hope I will get the opportunity to meet many of you at the various Back to School nights or initial PTA meetings at your home schools this Fall.  I have already introduced myself to all the Fillmore-West principals via email and let them know I plan to attend their coming events.

Lastly, I hope you have started to recognize our new logo and identity for Fillmore.  I know everyone loved the buttons from the Spring Arts Show.  Look for more exciting materials to get the word out coming soon!

Remember, the arts make us smarter,

Kelly
