New Excitement

Last Wednesday, we hosted more than 100 new families at the New Parent Information Night in the Peterson Middle School. These families have been accepted and have made their decision to come to Flint Hill. It was a fantastic evening to meet other new families and begin to get acquainted with all things Flint Hill.  

I have never been with so many excited people! I met new Kindergarten parents who are anxious to plan play dates and get to know everyone. I met incoming freshman families who asked about tryouts for Certamen (don’t worry, before I was a mother of a Latin student, I didn’t know what that was either) and people who wanted to know what brought our family here 13 years ago. I heard stories about what excited these families most about Flint Hill and why, with tons of academic choices in this area, they made this one.  

This weekend, I also hosted the Sophomore Parent Dinner with the Illaria family. I was a little worried because it was a rainy Friday night, but it all worked out, and we had so much fun!  I met so many parents that I hadn’t met before. Jim and Tammy Ilaria were wonderful hosts; they even had a chocolate fountain! I think this group of parents really felt and appreciated the sense of community on Friday night. I think everyone left with at least one new friend and will now have many more familiar faces at community and sporting events.

As we continue into the last few weeks of this school year, I again encourage you to volunteer at the Igloo (Upper School) or the Den (Middle School). Try to attend every event you can. We have a few spaces left in the Golf Clinic, and Mica Howard P’19 and I promise everyone will have a great time even if you have never played golf!

 

Thank You, Flint Hill!

You showed us that no part was more important than the other – academics, mental health, fun, athletics and the arts all were intertwined…

Thank you to all who participated and volunteered at the Flint Hill Golf Invitational. It was great to see everyone!   For me, one of the best things about being a parent at Flint Hill is the opportunity to volunteer.
