This month only, we will carry a limited inventory of $5 Starbucks cards and $10 Target cards for the holiday season. Sounds like a great stocking stuffer! They will be available Thursday, 12/6.

Street Smart at SouthGlenn   
It's easy to help our school earn $250 to $2500. Just shop and log receipts from any of The Streets at SouthGlenn stores and restaurants between August 15, 2017 and April 30, 2018. Our school earns five points per dollar spent, with many additional bonus points opportunities. Receipts can be logged at the Retail/Residential Management Office or dropped in the collection box in the Concierge Lobby if you do not need them returned. Remember to tell your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers to log their receipts. Anyone can support your school in the Street Smarts program. Questions? Contact Audrey Monson, AMonson@sothfamily.org.

QUESTION:
  My kids want to see every movie that comes along because all their friends do.  They ask:  "What's wrong with it?"  Give me some guidelines, please!
 
ANSWER: 
Personally, I don't see many movies.  Frankly, I don't want to.  The same goes for most of what's on television.   Hollywood could have so much good to offer our culture (What a powerful medium!), but it has generally taken the low road.  That said, it is the spiritually immature Christian who asks:  "What is wrong with it?"  The mature Christian always asks:  "What is right about it?"  (Parents, ask your kids:  "What's right about it?")
