  • The program was age appropriate with a positive message about literacy.  It was enjoyed by the staff and students.  All of the feedback I received from the AES staff was positive.  I observed the response from our students during the programs and it was evident they understood the message and enjoyed themselves!

  • This presenter was so engaging and really managed all 200+ students very well. He called many kids up to participate and the kids learned about the purpose of reading and did numerous fun reading/spelling activities. They came away saying it was one of their absolute favorite assemblies! We can't wait to book him again next year!
