School Supply Kits are NOW  available to order on-line until June 2, 2017.

Flint Hill has chosen to use Schoolkids, a Staples Company for ordering school supplies for the 2017-2018 school year.  You can order online at www.shopttkids.com.  Please know we can not accept orders after June 2, 2017.  The supplies will be available for pick up at the Open House in August.  If you are unable to make the Open House, we will leave the supplies in your child’s classroom.

Please feel free to contact Gizelle Gorkowski at gmgorkowski@verizon.net or Anne Winters at annefwinters@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Flint Hill will celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week on May 1-5.

This year’s theme will be a Garden/Spring Theme. “Thank you FHES Teachers for helping us BLOOM!”

The PTA has planned the following school-wide events for the teachers & staff:

Monday (5/1) ~ Mr. Rivera, Mrs. Hoak, & Staff Breakfast

Tuesday (5/2) ~ PTA Snack Bar (Coffee from Café Amouri)

Wednesday (5/3) ~ SCA Breakfast and Treats in Mailboxes

Thursday ~ (5/4) ~ PTA Luncheon (Italian Gourmet)

Friday (5/5) ~ PTA Smoothie and Dessert Bar

 We are looking for a couple parents to make a few treats for our PTA Snack/Coffee Bar on Tuesday the 2nd and desserts for the teacher luncheon on the 4th.  Please sign up HERE if you are able.   

Classroom Notes – Please send in any decorated flowers and handprints starting Wednesday.  Collections baskets (marked “Teacher Appreciation Project”) will be placed in the classrooms (near the doorway) starting Wednesday, April 26.  This year the flowers will be used to decorate the classroom door during Teacher Appreciation Week. The hand prints will be used to create a large mural in the hallway for all staff to enjoy.  ***Extra notes will be available in each classroom for those who forget their notes as well as for those students who wish to make notes for other teachers (e.g., art teacher, music teacher, etc.).  Please send in notes by Friday, April 28.

 Teacher Raffle Gift Card Donations – For the 2nd year, the PTA is holding a gift card raffle for the teachers & staff every day of Teacher Appreciation Week.  They are asking Flint Hill families to gift cards (anywhere from $5 to $25) for this raffle.  If you are interested in contributing to this raffle, please send your gift card to the main office in a sealed envelope marked “Teacher Raffle” with the amount of the gift card listed (sometimes the gift cards do not list the amount, and the PTA wants to make sure they are distributed evenly).  Please send in gift cards by Wednesday, April 26.

Walk n Wheels Wednesday – May 3rd

Just a few more Walk n Wheel Wednesday’s left!  If you can help out to hand out toe tokens to the students that walk, please sign up HERE.
