Lower School Newsletter - June 8, 2022
Message From Division Director
Last week was filled with fun in the sun! Congratulations to Chris Brown, the P.E. team, and parent and teacher volunteers who made our 2022 Field Day a success. Despite the constant pivots and adjustments implemented for the best interest of our Huskies, it was so nice to see some of you on campus with us enjoying the festivities.
Our Closing Ceremony and Sixth Grade Promotion were two of the many highlights of my year. As I acknowledged the JK-5 Huskies, I could not help but notice the bright smiles and even a few of them dancing and jumping in excitement during their reflections. They truly loved school and their teachers, which was evident when many did not want to leave campus. The event also highlighted our first Promotion since our JK-6 realignment in 2020. Our oldest Huskies have made memories to last a lifetime, and I know they are looking forward to next year as seventh graders in the Middle School with their new director, Brian Lamont. Congratulations to all of our Huskies, faculty and staff for a fantastic school year!
Thank you for your partnership, support and love for the Flint Hill School community!

Interim Director of the Lower School

Spring Cleaning: Drop Off Uniform Donations
It’s the end of the year and time to clean out any old uniforms. Parents can drop off uniform donations to the Miller House front porch each day, between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Our next uniform exchange will be in August before the start of the year.
A Great Day on the Links — Golf Invitational Photos
We had so much fun at this year's Golf Invitational and Skills Clinic at Westfields Golf Club. It was wonderful to spend the day with 25 alumni, who returned to play, and over 125 clinic and tournament players, consisting of parents, alumni parents, trustees, grandparents and community partners. Thank you to our generous sponsors and incredible co-chairs for their hard work in helping us make the return of golf special! Enjoy these photos from the day.
We Made It!
That’s a wrap on the school year! I took advantage of every moment here at Flint Hill. And, I’m so glad YOU did too! I’m filled with joy and gratitude for all our time together this year – the wonderful people I have gotten to know and all of our moments shared. Read more.
