NED's Mindset Mission

Parent Letter

Description of event:
This is follow-up to last' year's assembly, "The NED Show." There will be two of the same assemblies, one for grades K-2 (8:45-9:30), and one for grades 3-5 (10:00-10:45).

Students Will Learn:
- The Power of Yet – If you’re not good at something, it just means you’re not good at it…YET
- How to spark courage in others through the use of kind words and encouragement
- How to keep learning and growing, even when they think they already know something

About the Show: NED’s Mindset Mission is an interactive, 45-minute all-school performance. We use storytelling, puppetry, illusions and yoyo tricks to take the students on an entertaining journey with our character NED. He follows clues, meets memorable characters and learns valuable lessons. First, a yeti teaches NED to overcome Mt. Everest’s toughest obstacles and Never Give Up. With Captain Kindly, NED discovers inner treasures on a Caribbean island and how to Encourage Others. Finally, while repairing a sputtering spaceship, NED grows his brain while learning the message Do Your Best. The organization also provides 200 free online lesson plans, videos and activities that connect to common learning themes – preventing bullying, building relationships, achieving excellence, test prep, growth mindset and healthy choices.
