Flint Hill Elementary School PTA is committed to supporting the experience of our military-
connected students and their families.
For two years in a row, Flint Hill Elementary School has been named a “Purple Star
School” for its support of military families. The annual recognition is presented by the
Virginia Department of Education and Virginia Council on Educational Opportunity for
Military Children. The PTA supports FHES in retaining its Purple Star Designation by
providing additional resources and guidance to its military families. If you are a new or
continuing military parent, please contact our Military Parent Liaison for additional
support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
