For the first time FHES PTA is sponsoring a "meet and greet" mixer event for all FHES families. Having a hard time meeting other FHES families or just want to connect with FHES friends at a fun venue? Come out and mingle at Shipgarten in Tysons Corner  - admittance is free and the PTA has reserved a section of the venue (which has playground equipment, areas to run around, a dog park, picnic tables and food and beverages to purchase). 

Note: Please visit venue website for parking information (offsite parking with shuttle or walking from street parking) and FAQ's for more details about the venue. Please also note that the PTA is hosting this event to encourage families to get together, but due to budget constraints is not catering food or drinks for the event. 
Additional details from Shipgarten below about activities that will be going on during the 17th below! As a reminder, we will be gathering between 1 and 4 pm!

Shipgarten is having Frozen and Spiderman host their Kids & Family Festival on September 17th from 12-6 PM. Bring the whole family for an unforgettable experience and see live performances from Spiderman, Elsa, and Anna. We also have live music, moonbounces, and a full playground so everyone can have a blast! Dogs are welcome at Shipgarten too, whether on-leash or in our off-leash dog park! We offer lots of treats such as Pup Cups and Kongs filled with peanut butter so the whole family can enjoy a treat.
