Winter Break is right around the corner, but tonight is Fillmore's Winter Concert...

Yes, Fillmore Friends, it's SHOWTIME!

Last Monday I went to a Messiah Sing-Along, but tonight I'm going to hear the music of Fillmore students.  Won't you join me?

Winter Concert is TONIGHT, Monday, December 12th
  • The concert features 3rd to 5th grade students
  • Strings, Intermediate Band, and the Chorus will perform
  • The concert begins at 7pm at Fillmore-West, Main Auditorium
  • NOTE: Student performers should arrive at the auditorium by 6pm and wear black on the bottom, dark shoes, and white tops
Can't get enough music of the season?
  • Go check out "A Gospel and Motown Christmas" presented by our neighbors, the Duke Ellington School of the Arts Show Choir
  • Thursday, December 15 & Friday, December 16, 7:30 PM at the Ellington Theater, 3500 R St NW
  • Tickets are $15 and will be available at the door or online at http://ellingtonschool.org/quicklinks/buytickets.html
Blustery GOOD NEWS!
  • Clean Currents extended its double-donations, but only until December 14th! Let's get $50 donations for Fillmore, rather than the regular $25!
  • Change to Clean Currents and start 2012 using clean, green wind energy. NOW is the time to sign up!!
  • IT IS SO SIMPLE -- If you pay a monthly bill to PEPCO, you can sign up.  This doesn't require any other changes -- you won't need to place a wind turbine on your roof or anything.  Just go to the website, have your PEPCO account number, and it will just take 5 minutes.
  • We have until Earth Day (April 22nd), 2012 to reach our 25-family goal. (We have gotten 3 sign-ups so far!)
End of Year Donations
  • Don't forget to get those last 2011 deductions by giving to the Friends of Fillmore
  • Use this link to contribute easily using your credit card through Paypal.  Every bit helps!
  • Don't forget in-kind donations too.  Take a look at the  Fillmore teachers' Wish List for this school year.  Maybe you already have an item or two they are hoping for or would be interested in purchasing something directly for the teachers
I'll see you tonight and in the New Year!  Stay warm, bright, and filled with festive cheer.

Remember, the arts make us smarter,

Kelly
