Upper School Newsletter - June 8, 2022
Message From Division Director
It was wonderful to have the Upper School together last week for our 2021-2022 Closing Ceremonies. Though I have been a part of many similar events, I thought last Friday’s event showed a little something extra from the students. The students were cheering so loudly and so enthusiastically for each other, more so than at your average end-of-year awards ceremony. It was so heartwarming to see how they try to lift each other up in those moments and celebrate each other’s wins. It was the perfect way for the students to head off into the summer.
But the crowning event is still yet to come. On Friday, we will say goodbye to the Class of 2022 at Commencement after celebrating all of their accomplishments. In the short time that I have had to get to know them, I have quickly seen what my colleagues meant when they called this class “exceptional!”

Upper School Advisory Placement Process
Advisory experiences supplement the day-to-day academic and social-emotional growth of our students. Our placement process is intentional and centered on the student, like everything else at Flint Hill. The process involves many voices and steps in creating a well-composed advisory that becomes a tight-knit community the following year. Read more.

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.
