Snack Donation Request

FHES is collecting snack donations for our students in need.  We are looking for individually wrapped snacks like pretzels, goldfish, and chips.  If you are able to donate, please drop items off at the main office.  If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Williams at aywilliams1@fcps.edu.  Thank you for your support.

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 HERE.  Type in the schools account number: 93745. 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.

From the BoxTops Committee 
It’s hard to believe, but our last collection date of the school year is coming right up! Our third and final Box Tops collection date will be Friday, June 9th, so feel free to start dropping your clipped, unexpired BoxTops in the collection box in the main lobby any time in the coming weeks. Thanks to you, we’re over 60% of the way to our goal of $2,000 for the school year – let’s finish strong!

As a reminder, we ask that BoxTops be returned to us in baggies labeled with the names of the student and their teacher and the number of Box Tops included, or pasted/taped onto a collection sheet (see attached). Remember, expired BoxTops cannot be redeemed so please make sure to turn your BoxTops in by each collection date! For more information on the BoxTops for Education program, including a list of participating products and our school’s progress, visit www.BTFE.com. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Sally Richards at pcvschicker@yahoo.com.

Book Collection for The Little Free Library
The school is collecting books to use to fill up the Little Free Library in front of the school during the summer.  If you have any to contribute, please donate them to provide students with something new to read over the summer months.
