Does your child love Fortnite? Unicorns? Lacrosse? Dance? Art projects to share? We invite all of our students to show off what they know at Flint Hill’s Show What You Know. SWYK is Flint Hill’s annual learning fair where all K-6 students are encouraged to share your knowledge and interests with the Flint Hill community. PBL’s (Project Based Learning projects) done at school are welcome! Students can work alone or with a partner.

Please note that this is NOT a science fair (even though science experiments are welcome!). Projects will not be judged – this is an information-sharing event only. So, grab a tri-fold board, put some information together on your favorite topic (photos, drawings, etc), and VOILA! – you are ready for Show What You Know!!

International Night – Friday, March 15

Mark your calendars for this great annual event!
