Holiday Gift Card Collection to Support Flint Hill Families

We will be collecting gift card donations over the next several weeks for our Flint Hill families in need.  If you would like to participate, please send all donations to Mrs. Williams attention.  We are looking for Giant, Safeway, Target, Walmart, and Visa/AMEX gift cards.  All donations will go directly to support families in our Flint Hill community.  Thank you for your generosity and for helping to make someone else’s holiday season brighter!  If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Mrs. Williams at aywilliams1@fcps.edu.

Call for Disinfecting Wipes for the Cafeteria

Flu season is approaching!  Flint Hill needs your help!   Please consider donating disinfecting wipes to be used in the cafeteria to keep it as clean and germ-free as possible.  Donations can be dropped off at the main office.  Thank you for your help!

Join Artsonia for the Opportunity to Purchase Quality Keepsake Items with Your Child’s Artwork

Artsonia is an exciting online digital art gallery that provides parents with access to their student’s artwork throughout the year.  In addition to viewing your child’s artwork, Artsonia offers families and friends opportunities to purchase quality keepsake items that earn money for Flint Hill  – great for the holidays!  For your child to participate in Artsonia, you first need to grant permission for the school to provide your email to Artsonia by using this online form.  After you have granted permission, you will receive an email from Artsonia to activate your child’s account.  Once the account is activated, parents can start viewing artwork as it is posted, and share it with family and friends!  For more information on Artsonia, please contact Ms. McAlister at sdmcalister@fcps.edu.

Join the Falcon 5K Sponsorship Committee!
We are looking for people to join the 5K sponsorship committee! It is a fun event that brings the school together and a great fundraiser.  There are co-chairs in place, so any extra help would be useful.  If you would like to help, contact Ellen Mek at  or Brian Merritt at flinthill5K@gmail.com .
