Take meaningful risks. Be yourself. Make a difference.

By now many of us have had an opportunity to meet our children’s teachers and fellow parents and to visit campus for events and activities. Homecoming is this weekend, and I encourage you join your Flint Hill community for a weekend filled with athletic events, food and fun for the entire family.  

It’s going to be a phenomenal weekend. Here are some DOs and DON’Ts to ensure you have the best time with our Flint Hill community.

  • DO visit the Homecoming website to see the schedules for all events, including spirit week, athletics and alumni events.
  • DO wear your Flint Hill colors or gear to show your Husky pride. Need new gear? The School Store will open a Pop-Up Shop, featuring limited, new items that will be introduced at Homecoming!
  • DO stop by the Spirit Giveaway Tent hosted by the Parents’ Association, Advancement and Athletic Departments. This is a great way to connect and collect coveted Flint Hill spirit gear!
  • DO fuel up at The Den and The Igloo with concessions, including pizza, Chick-fil-A, assorted beverages and snacks. Remember cash for concessions! All funds raised are donated to the Parents’ Association Endowment for Financial Aid in Honor of Sally Hazel.  
  • DO allow additional time for parking. We expect large crowds. For your safety, please follow all traffic directions and signage.
  • DO sign up to volunteer. In my last letter I noted that there are over 112 roles available. There are only a few slots left — sign up and join us! This is how I know Homecoming weekend will be phenomenal — more than 100 volunteers have already signed up. I’m grateful for the time you give to our community.  

Some helpful additional tips:

  • DON’T be shy about stopping by the Spirit Giveaway Tent or introducing yourself to other families. We’re all part of the Flint Hill community, pulling that sled together.  
  • DON’T forget — the only pets permitted on campus are Klondike and service animals. This is new, and the change was made to ensure the safety of our community. I know this can be a tough one; our pup, Tripp, loved being on campus, however, this change was made with safety in mind.
  • DON’T miss this exciting weekend — even if you can only stop by for a short time, it’s a meaningful all-school moment when you can show your Husky pride.  

Take meaningful risks. Be yourself. Make a difference.
