Join the PTA!
The purpose of the PTA is to support the faculty, staff, parents, and most importantly our students. In order for us to be successful, we need the support and involvement of our families, faculty, and staff. We hope you decide to join the PTA again this year and support the many programs that
enrich our Flint Hill students’ experiences.

To join the FHES PTA, please visit the PTA website  and click on JOIN. PTA membership
is $20 per family, and you must join the PTA each school year. Join before September 15th and you will receive a newly designed FHES car magnet!  When you join the PTA, you can also make a tax-deductible donation to the Friends of Flint Hill fundraiser.  All proceeds support PTA Programs that benefit your students!

If you have questions, contact Mimi Tom at membership@fhespta.org  or Sarah Speer at fhesfundraising@gmail.com

Falcon 5K & Fun Run Chairs Needed! 

The 9th Annual Falcon 5K & Fun Run will be held on Saturday, May 5th.  We are looking for chairs for both the race committee as well as the sponsorship committee.  This race is a family event that celebrates both fitness and community.  It is our largest event of the year.  We promise you plenty of support and guidance.  Interested?  Intrigued?  E-mail Gayle Schlueter at fhespres@gmail.com.

FHES Snack Donation Program
Welcome back, families! For anyone interested in making a donation, we are currently collecting individually packaged nut free snacks to distribute to our FHES students in need.  If you would like to donate, please  send items to Mrs. Williams via the main office.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mrs. Williams at aywilliams1@fcps.edu.

Reflections Contest

Reflections is back for another year and we love to see what students come up with! Reflections is a nationwide program for promoting the arts while encouraging students to use artistic ways to express themselves.

The theme this year is “Within Reach.”  Artwork can include a variety of different mediums such as dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography or visual arts.

Entries will be due in the fall, so there is plenty of time to participate.  Any grade and any ability can participate in Reflections. Information can be found HERE or by contacting the chair, Jessica Snow at vice_president@fhespta.org with any questions.
****If parents have experience in one of the art areas above and would like to be a judge,
please reach out!
