Education Through Entertainment
As recent articles here have made clear, most of the school assembly performers Mobile Ed sends into schools are on tour, traveling from town to town, from state to state throughout the year. Some major metropolitan areas, however, allow us to station a performer there year round, much to the delight of schools in that area, since this opens up a whole lot more dates from which they may choose. Last week I wrote about a couple of our performers resident in the greater Chicago area. Today I wish to draw your attention to New York and New Jersey.
Hot on the heels of some great reviews in Kentucky and Indiana, our new anti bullying school assembly - Stronger Than a Bully! - is heading out to the East Coast for the month of October and will be visiting schools in New Jersey, New York and parts of New England, as well as some of our schools in Pennsylvania both on the way out and coming back.
This outstanding new program focuses on empowering the victim and teaching kids techniques to use to prevent them from becoming victims. These are very important lessons to learn not just for their time in school, but for dealing with life in general. And Dave Mitchell, the performer behind this program is extremely adept at making the message fun, moving and exciting!
The tour is virtually sold out in most of the country but there are still a few dates left in Michigan and a few left open out East. For schools in New Jersey and around New York City, remember that we also offer a second awesome new anti- bullying program this year with Shine Through and the extremely talented (and pretty!) Kristina Coia.
For the rest of the country, if we cannot find a date for your school for Stronger Than a Bully, don’t forget about The Inspector!
Inspector Iwannano is Mobile Ed’s great school assembly take on Character Counts and the Six Pillars of Character, and it covers some of the same ground as Stronger Than a Bully! Limited dates remain open in most areas, and this is also a really exciting and important program!

Great news for schools in New Jersey and New York seeking exciting an anti bullying school assembly this year!
Sky Dome Planetarium is one of the most popular school assemblies in the country. And why wouldn’t it be? For kids there is hardly a more awesome experience than to enter their gym and discover a huge silver dome occupying half the room and standing some sixteen feet high. And then to enter the dome itself through a mysterious tunnel, sit in the dark inside and then to be treated to a wondrous journey into outer space and beyond! We have never met a child (or adult!) that did not think this a totally awesome experience.
With curriculum based instruction embedded thoroughly throughout the program this great school assembly is also a huge hit with teachers, as it reinforces educational benchmarks in several areas.
And so we are happy to alert you that we have made more than one tour available this year in the midwest. Michigan and Ohio schools, being right in our backyard so to speak, ave always had great opportunities for scheduling this show, but with extra performers now available, Skydome will be able to visit several states that have not had great access to this portable planetarium school assembly before.
Sky Dome (sometimes confused with the older Star Lab program) is available this school year to midwestern schools in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, West Virginia, Tennessee, Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minneapolis and even Texas, Utah, Colorado, Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota!
For those in other parts of the country, do not despair, as we have additional performers resident on the East and West coasts and available to service schools both in California and the eastern states of New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, Delaware and all of New England.
So let the stars shine over your school!
Most schools that schedule our Martin Luther King school assembly program usually try to have it in January, near to Dr. King’s birthday or for Black History month in February. So we do not usually have to many performances of this school assembly playing in March. But this winter was a little rougher than most! Quite a few schools missed programs due to snow days and as a result are making up their performances now.
