Flint's Hints

Welcome, S.M.S. Junior High students and parents!
 
"Flint's Hints" is the website of Mr. Mark Flint, Jr. High Coordinator and Eighth Grade Teacher at St. Mary's School in Melrose, Massachusetts.

This website is designed primarily for use by Mr. Flint's students and their parents. Students should check this site on a regular basis to obtain homework assignments, receive updates on long-term projects and to look for important announcements pertaining to life at St. Mary's Junior High.
 
Parents are invited to periodically check "Flint's Hints" to verify that all required work is being completed by their son or daughter on time.

My primary goal for all of my students is that they will come to know and experience God by walking the walk of discipleship through prayer, service and dedication to studies.
