SAVE THE DATE!!!  Registration is OPEN! 

It’s Time!  Sign up NOW and grab your shoes.  The annual Flint Hill Elementary School 5K and Fun Run is right around the corner.

If you sign up before April 9th, you get a discounted fee AND a t-shirt!

Not up for running?  Sign up HERE to volunteer before and on race day.  We need a lot of people to make this event a success.  You’ll also receive a Staff t-shirt for those volunteering on race day.

April is designated as the Month of the Military Child; a time to honor the sacrifices made by military families worldwide, with an emphasis on the experience of the dependent children of military members serving at home and overseas.

Flint Hill is excited to celebrate the month of the military child by wearing purple to show support on Friday, April 12th.  Our active duty and military students will be recognized on the FH Morning News Show.  We hope that your child will participate and “Purple Up!  For Military Kids” on Friday.

Volunteers needed for Picture Day THIS Tuesday!

Picture Day is THIS Tuesday, April 9th.  Flint Hill is looking for volunteers to help out with Picture Day.  Volunteers will receive a $35 voucher to put towards your picture purchase.  You can choose from the following shifts:  9am-12pm (need 3) or 12-3pm (need 2).  Please e-mail Patricia Aranibar De Salinas (in the office) @ pearanibarde@fcps.edu if you are able to help out this Tuesday!
