FH Spring Break Update

Dear Freedom Hill Community,

We hope you are well as we enter Spring Break. It sure was a busy end to March at Freedom Hill! The students and staff loved our visit from SaulPaul (thank you Mrs. Coleman!), our Book Fair (thank you Ms. Trott!) and we saw many families in the building with several grade levels holding learning celebrations.

The school building will be closed this week. We'll see everyone on April 10 when school resumes for the last week of our third quarter! Wishing you a safe, restful time this week with your student(s), wherever your plans take you. Thank you for your continued support of our school community and students.

Nicholas Zapadka

PTA Updates


It's coming back! Thanks to Rachel Shabica, the Faculty Volleyball Game against Westgate ES will take place on April 28th 6:30-8 pm in the Marshall High School gym. This used to be a great tradition at FHES but hasn’t taken place since 2019. The teachers of Freedom Hill play against the teachers of Westgate ES. The kids LOVE coming to watch and cheer on their school’s team with pom poms and foam fingers, eat yummy pizza and snacks and wear their FHES spiritwear or red clothing. We highly encourage folks to purchase their tickets online on Pay4SchoolStuffCheck out the flier here. We will need help with volunteers! Sign up here.



Bingo Night is a beloved event that will take place this year on May 12. In order to prepare for it, we'd love to start collecting potential prizes. If you are doing a little spring cleaning, you can drop off prizes at Sahar Javadi's house at 8518 Quaint Lane, Vienna, VA 22182. Just email president@freedomhillpta.org to make sure we know it's a Bingo Prize donation. What makes a good prize? Unopened Games, Toys, Art & Crafts Kits or things remaining from the holidays.



Ms. Rossman is updating her summer Bookmobile collection with kid friendly graphic novels/comic books, early readers (ie: step 1-3 Scholastic books) AND early chapter books (ie: rainbow fairies and magic treehouse).  If you have any of these that you'd like to donate to FHES, please drop them off with a note for Ms. Rossman at the front office.
