Parents’ Association Spring Uniform Exchange for Grades JK-8

Mark your calendars for the final Uniform Exchange of the school year!
This is a free event for our community. Please note, all parents and guardians are welcome to participate. Whether or not you have items to donate, please come and shop and prepare for the spring!
We depend on volunteers to make it happen. Help is needed to organize clothing and set up the Exchange on Thursday, March 7. On Friday, March 8, volunteers help families “shop” and re-stock as additional uniforms are donated. If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up here. Volunteers get to preview and get the first pick of all items simply for helping out!
If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering, please contact Adrienne Robinson in the Development Office at email@example.com.

Volunteer at the Igloo
Join the fun as a volunteer with our Upper School students — the Igloo needs you! Whether you’ve never worked at the Igloo before or are ready to get back to it after some time off, please consider volunteering! It’s a great place to see Upper School students at their finest — at the end of another busy day and ready for a snack! It’s a quick shift — 2:15-3:40 p.m. daily — and no prior experience necessary. Click here to view February opportunities, and sign up for a shift or two. Thank you for your support. We hope to see you there!
We Need your Boxtops!
Clip your Boxtops and provide funds for Flint Hill! Just 10 Boxtops are equal to $1 for our school. Collection boxes are located in the Upper, Middle and Lower School Offices as well as the Miller House. Save Boxtops year-round (and drop them off as you have them); we will be counting more Boxtops in the spring! Want to get involved or have questions? Reach out to this year’s Boxtops Chair Emily Weems P’29.
