I am pleased to report that the response to our petition and your support of Fillmore Arts Center is really gratifying. THANK YOU! Since just last night when things were “officially” released, we’ve had over 250 Fillmore “friends” sign the petition and reading all the tremendous comments of how Fillmore touches the lives of children past and present who have been able to attend touches my heart. I am including a selection of these below, as I couldn’t have said it better myself.
Please continue to spread the word! ~Kelly, Board Chair, FoF
High quality arts program is essential to the whole student. Tests are not everything, it must be acknowledged that tests miss too much of the learning experience and arts support broad learning. ~Jeff
The power of the arts to shape young minds and hearts is extraordinary. Both of my children attended Fillmore. Not only do they both have vivid memories of Fillmore times, but they are engaged today in careers which call on their creativity developed in the experiences they had at Fillmore. ~Gail
The arts are a crucial component of children’s education. ~Ginger
The extraordinary arts education offered at Fillmore is a key part of our children’s school experience – and an example of why more and more parents are enrolling their kids in DC schools. ~Michael
Art education is key to success. ~Meredith
The arts are critical to the development of well-rounded and creative young adults. ~Andrew
