What makes a comprehensive


school site comprehensive is the
multitude of extracurricular programs
and activities that are offered. These
programs are dependent on donations
and volunteers. Recently the Fillmore
Lions Club donated money to 3
different programs at Fillmore High
School.

Athletes in Action
The Fillmore High School Cross Country team
competed at the Ventura County Cross Country

awarded to the Flashes.

The Varsity Football team put forth a valiant


effort before falling to a determined Nordhoff
team. The Flashes look to bounce back today
against Carpenteria in its final regular season
game.

Activities
The Mighty Fillmore Marching Band competed
at its first band competition of the year. The
band played well and performed admirably at
the Simi Valley Band Competition.

After a one year hiatus, College and


Career Day made its return to Fillmore High
School. Vendors from colleges, universities, the
military and many careers set up booths in the
gym. Throughout the day all students were
able to explore areas of interest and interact
with the vendors. The greatest part of the day
was when students were overheard talking
about what they learned and some had actually
decided on a change of their future plans. A
special acknowledgement goes out to Isela Larin
for spearheading a superb event.

Day set up in the gym.

The artistic works of the students in the


Spanish classes were displayed in a special
room in La Fondita restaurant. The theme was
centered on Day of the Dead or Dia de Los
Muertos. Students walked each period to La
Fondita to hang their art work on the walls. A
special thanks to Luis Herrera and Lourdes
Juarez.
