Reflections Update

On December 12th, Flint Hill had one student, Luke C. (2nd Grade) advance to the NOVA District level for his literature piece called Within Reach.

Great job, Luke!

Looking for something fun to do in January? 

Please join us for ice skating at Skatequest in Reston for a fun evening on 1/13/18 from 6-8 pm.  The cost is $7.00 per person which includes the ice skate rental.  Sign up is available now on pay4schoolstuff.com.  Sign up early to reserve your spot!  Please bring your whole family for a fun filled night benefiting Flint Hill ES.  Feel free to contact Gizelle Gorkowski (gmgorkowski@verizon.net) or Megan David (meganbrwn@aol.com) with any questions.

Help Us Meet our Fundraising Goal!

Don’t forget Flint Hill when you make your end of year tax-deductible donations!  We still need to raise almost $4,000 to meet our $20,000 goal for the Friends of Flint Hill Fundraising Campaign.  We need the support of ALL Flint Hill families to meet our goal.

Last year, the PTA spent approximately $100 per student enrolled on programs that improve the educational experience and enrich the lives of our children.

You can make a tax-deductible donation through pay4schoolstuff.com or use the online form or submit a check to the Flint Hill office.  Be sure to make your donation by December 31st to receive a tax letter for 2017.  Don’t forget to check with your employer – many will match your gift!
