Join us for a morning in the life of your student and get a special glimpse into the classroom experience at Flint Hill. Your day will begin just like it does for every husky, with a cheerful greeting in carpool, and continue as you shadow your student throughout their class activities. 

This event is for grandparents and special friends of Lower School students in grades JK-6. We politely request parents visit during open classroom days throughout the school year in order to accommodate grandparents and special friends on this exciting day.
