It is no secret that kids share in America's love affair with junk food (I refuse to call it “fast food”, since it is usually neither fast nor worthy of being called food). Educating our children about the benefits of good nutrition and proper exercise is a task well worth attempting. Catching them when they are young is the best way to encourage the adults of tomorrow to practice better eating and living habits and so establish a positive trend.
Education Through Entertainment
In our continuing series, a Mobile Ed Guide to School Assemblies, we offer assistance to you, the parent, who has been given the unsung task of selecting and arranging shows for the children at your school. And, in this series, we attempt to answer all the questions you may have or may not have even considered yet as you approach this job.
When it comes to picking school assembly programs some people know exactly what they would like to schedule. Some don’t have a clue! (There is a lot of that mentality about, actually!) When you set out to determine what shows to schedule you will find that you may have some staff who saw, say, a guy doing a Martin Luther King program at another neighboring school and thought it was great. They would really like you to get it for your school. You may also find that the principal really wants something on character issues or "character counts”. You may have a librarian who really wants to get in a particular author. The art teacher may want a residency by a particular artist. And so on.
So, you just got home from a PTO meeting and, somehow, someway, you have been, shall we say "volunteered" to be the new cultural enrichment officer, or school assembly coordinator for your school. And you, proud parent of a newly minted kindergartener, have absolutely no idea what a school assembly is. OMG! Wow! What do you do now? Well, relax. We have you covered. Welcome to Mobile Ed Productions' Guide to School Assembly Programs. We have your back!
