Congressman McNerney Visits Fillmore - November 5, 2013
Letters to Our Troops Brings Congressman Jerry McNerney to Visit Fillmore
On Tuesday November 5, 2013, Congressman Jerry McNerney visited Fillmore's STEP Up After-School Program to collect and deliver student written letters to our overseas U.S. troops based in Afghanistan. When Congressman McNerney arrived, STEP Up students were busy writing their letters. McNerney visited students at their tables and spoke with them as they worked. In addition, he spoke to the entire group and praised their letter writing project as one that would definitely be heart-felt especially to soldiers who are thousands of miles away from home and will not be with their families during the upcoming holidays. Later during the visit, selected students read their letters to Congressman McNerney and the entire STEP Up student assembly. The student letters to the troops were filled with encouragement and appreciation for their service to our country. This project is an annual activity spearheaded by Fillmore's STEP Up Facilitator, Michelle Loftis. Thank you Congressman McNerney for your visit and continued support for Fillmore students and our U.S. troops abroad!

Fillmore's Science Night January 2013 a Huge Success!
Fillmore's Science Night on Wednesday was the place to be! Over 800 parents and students were in attendance to see and hear the evenings activities. MESA teachers and students hosted a Star Lab and special science presentations, including several hands-on science exhibits! But the "star" of this evening was NASA astronaut and former Fillmore student Jose Hernandez, who gave an hour long presentation on his life growing up in Stockton, his parents influence and support of his goal, and career in NASA. His presentation included 2 videos including his training and flight into space on the Space Shuttle "Discovery" in 2009. His message to students and parents was, "Set a goal, make a road map to get to your goal, know how far away you are from your goal, work hard in school so that you can achieve your goal, and have determination in order to fulfill your goal." After his presentation, Jose Hernandez stayed to sign autographs and have his picture taken with students and parents. The Fillmore community thanks NASA Astronaut Jose Hernandez for his visit and looks forward to his return!
