Popular School Assembly Visits Huntington Elementary
BRUNSWICK, Ohio- On September 14, 2012, Huntington Elementary had the opportunity to see the most popular school assembly in America. This wonderful assembly is called the NED Show.
The NED Show stands for Never give up, Encourage others, and Do your best. It teaches students a great lesson about achieving goals, thinking positively, and encouraging others. And what better way to teach something like that than with yo-yos?
The NED Show first began in the Northwest in 1989. At the time, the company was known as the “USA Yoyo Extravaganza.” In 2004, the company renamed itself All For KIDZ® to “better reflect its vision,” according to http://www.thenedshow.com.
Now, the NED Show travels all around the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. They teach students about how to reach goals and how important it is to think positively, help and encourage others, and do the right thing. They use the adventures of an imaginary kid known as NED to help students understand how never giving up, encouraging others, and doing their best can help them throughout their lives.
The NED Show might also talk to students about displaying respect and anti-bullying. But where do the yo-yos come into play?
The NED Show incorporates yo-yos, along with magic tricks and dramatic speech, into their shows to deliver a visual lesson. By using visuals and dramatic speech, the NED Show is very hard to forget, and therefore the messaging being sent sticks with the students.
All in all, the NED Show provides an entertaining, interactive show with a great message for students that will help them achieve great goals in life.
