Racers can also pick-up their packets prior to the race on Saturday, May5th from 7AM-8AM outside on the school basketball court.


Please note the Falcon 5K will start sharply at 8AM, with warm-ups taking place prior to the start (approximately 7:45AM).  The event is held rain or shine.

Again this year we will have a WAVE START so we ask participants to line up according to their Grade (sibling/parents can run with their children).  Elite runners should start in the first wave.  *Remember, timing starts when the runner crosses the timing mat so no need to rush!  Waves will be approximately 10 seconds apart.

The Fun Run will be held at 9AM, upon completion of the 5K.

Awards Ceremony to follow the Fun Run at approximately 9:30AM.

   Teacher Appreciation Week

Flint Hill will celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week on May 7-11.  This year’s theme will be a Camping Theme…  “The World Needs S’More Teachers Like YOU!”  

The PTA has planned the following school-wide events for the teachers & staff:

The PTA also needs YOUR help during Teacher Appreciation Week:

School Decorating with Chalk–All are invited on Sunday, May 6th to help decorate the sidewalks with chalk!  Bring your own chalk and let’s write loving messages to all our Flint Hill teachers.  Meet at school at 4pm. Students are welcome to write messages on parking spaces, and sidewalks.  PLEASE do NOT draw on the building.

Classroom Notes

Yesterday in your student’s Tuesday Folders, was a packet explaining teacher notes and the teacher raffle. Collections baskets (marked “Teacher Appreciation Project”) will be placed in the classrooms (near the doorway) starting April 30th.  This year stars will be used to decorate the classroom door during Teacher Appreciation Week. The “Happy Camper” cutouts will be used to create a large mural in the hallway for all the staff to enjoy.

Extra notes will be available in each classroom for those who forget their notes as well as for those who wish to make notes for other teachers (e.g., art teacher, music teacher, etc.).  Please send in notes by Friday, May 4th.

Teacher Raffle Gift Card Donations — For the 3rd year, the PTA is holding a gift card raffle for the teachers & staff every day of the Teacher Appreciation Week.  They are asking Flint Hill families to donate restaurant or store gift cards (anywhere from $5 to $25) for this raffle. If you are interested in contributing to the raffle, please send your gift card to the mail office in a sealed envelope marked “Teacher Appreciation Raffle” with the amount of the gift card listed (sometimes the gift cards do not indicate the amount and we want to distribute the cards evenly).  Please send in gift cards by Wednesday, May 2nd.

Thank you for your support!
