January Dining For Dollars!

Our first Dining for Dollars event for 2018 is at Maggio’s & Skorpio’s on Wednesday, January 17 from 5 – 8:30 pm!  Maggio’s & Skorpio’s features Greek and Italian cuisine, with American favorites such rotisserie chicken, served in a relaxed atmosphere.  Mrs. Hertzberg will be joining us for the first part of the evening and Mr. Bechtle plans to stop by too.  Get to know your principal better while enjoying a night with no cooking or clean-up, all while helping FHES raise money!  FHES PTA will receive a portion of the sales (carry-out and dine-in) when you mention Flint Hill!

Maggio’s & Skorpio’s is located at 421 Maple Ave. Check out their menu at: http://maggiosvienna.com/

Thank You for Your Generous Donations to Friends of Flint Hill!

Thank you to everyone who gave so generously to the Friends of Flint Hill (FOFH) Armchair Fundraiser.   We raised more than $17,000 of our $20,000 goal, with matching donations still coming in!  Did you know that 65% of Fortune 500 companies match charitable donations?  If you donated to FOFH, be sure to check with your employer to double or possibly triple your gift!

Tax receipts will be mailed in the next few weeks.  If you have questions or want to check if your employer’s matching gift was received, please contact Sarah Speer at FHESFundraising@gmail.com.

It is time to order your 2017-2018 Yearbook!

The deadline is January 24th.  Extra yearbooks will NOT be ordered.  If you miss this deadline, we will not be able to order a yearbook for you later.

Please do not miss your chance to buy this remembrance of the school year.  The 2016-2017 FHES Yearbook received the Gallery of Excellence Award for elementary school yearbook publishing from Walsworth– an amazing achievement for our hardworking yearbook staff.

How do you order?

  • Go to https://yearbookforever.com/#.

  • The purchase price per yearbook is $22.

Do you have a 6th grader?
