SHA COMMUNITY SURVEY: As we planned at the beginning of the year, the SHA Executive Committee wants to hear from the rest of our family. There will be a survey available to fill out and of course time for conversation and sharing ideas so we can continue to make great strides for our children in 2018! 

PLEASE RSVP VIA KONSTELLA so we are able to plan for the proper amount of food. 
- If there are dietary restrictions please note them in the RSVP. 
- If you want to vote for the movie please visit the post that will be on Facebook or put it in the comments of your RSVP - HAPPY FEET / ICE AGE / MR. POPPER'S PENGUINS

Gift Wrapping pick-up will be in a room on the same level as the movie.
