"Your assembly is the best we've ever had. Often assemblies do not include performers who are representative of our student body, and they are difficult for our students to comprehend (meaning the performers do not scaffold enough). We loved your assembly. It is the perfect length, highly engaging, it involves students emotionally and physically and it is bi-lingual. It is the first bi-lingual assembly we have ever had. And the performers are diverse and representative." Nicole O'Brien, Principal
