The HSA sponsors all cultural events for Mendham Borough Schools.  We have a team of amazing ladies who have lined up really fun events for our kids this year.  

OCTOBER 18

Kit's Interactive Theatre:  Kids will witness 4,000 years of history to life by participating in performances that feature improvisation, dance, music and humor. 

Grades pre-K - 2: Set in Sleepy Hollow, NY - 1799, this interactive performance weaves the characters from Washington Irving's classic story into a new and exciting tale.  Designed to be spooky (but not scary), the show begins where the original story left off.

Grades 3-4: Set in 1920 Nashville, the Women's Rights presentation re-enacts critical events in the development of the early women's movement, focustin on both the women and men who shaped its early days.
