Thank you for making our 7th annual Read-A- Thon, “Open a Book…and Start Your
Adventure!” such a rousing success!

Our students read 218,444 minutes and raised $14,634 that will be used to support Flint Hill! FHES readers surpassed our goal of reading 200,000 minutes.

The Read-A- Thon Committee and the Flint Hill PTA would like to recognize all the people who helped make this year’s event such a success.

Thank you to Ms. Rankin and her news team for helping us keep readers up to date on minutes read. Thank you to Ms. Hertzberg, Mrs. Hoak, the Flint Hill teachers, and office staff for their assistance and enthusiasm. The students will not forget those amazing dance moves or get the chicken song out of their heads!

And last but certainly not least, thank you to the Flint Hill parents, family members, and friends for their overwhelming support of our students and the Read-A- Thon. We appreciate the time and effort that you put into helping your students participate in this event.

In addition to taking part in this fun-filled event, we have many parent sponsors who own small businesses or medical/dental practices, or secure donations from their corporate employers. The Falcon 5K Race offers a dynamic marketing opportunity with exposure to over 500 community members in the Vienna/Oakton area. We thank our sponsors by listing their business names and logos on our T-shirts, website, fliers, and race day signs.  Funds raised go directly to programs that provide technology, curriculum supplies, and student enrichment programs at FHES.  Please contact us at flinthill5k@gmail.com if you are interested in becoming a sponsor.
