“In 20 years of education and 13 years as an administrator, I have not seen a student body so engaged in an assembly!”

    Destin Haas, Superintendent, North Newton School Corporation

    “I would definitely recommend Attaboy. The kids were very in tune with the band. It’s music that the kids like, and I think it got them connected. The message the band delivers is something that our kids need to hear from young people. They need to hear real life experiences like Attaboy shared today.”
    Troy Merillat, Principal, Fairview HS

    “Attaboy was amazing! It was by far the most engaging, memorable and meaningful assembly we have had in a very long time. The students have been raving about it."
    Nicole Baldner, Counselor, Windham Ashland Jewett Central School

    “I thought the message was something that the kids really needed to hear. I love the message of having the power to make your own decisions. For someone who is looking for the perfect group to bring for an assembly, it would be Attaboy.”
    Lauren Hurtig, Teacher, Fairview HS

    “The band connected with our students like nothing we have had in the past. This was by far the best assembly I have seen in my 33 years of education.”
    Gayle McRoberts, Principal, Pana HS

    “We have been having the same old STALE events year after year, but Attaboy did not disappoint. They have it all down to the right mix of good, straightforward advice the students can relate to and great music that kept them engaged. I cannot think of any way it could have been better."
    Leigh Gould, PTA President, Frank Lloyd Wright Intermediate School

    “The message was great and the show was fantastic! Our students were clearly engaged and excited!! Thank you for a positive, current program that touched our students!”
    Tammy Murphy-Flynn, Guidance Counselor, John Deere MS

    “Not only was their music high-quality, their original song lyrics were very relatable and well-received. The band members were genuine as they interacted with the audience, and the students appreciated their humor, honesty, talent, and transparency."
    Bruce Jennings, Principal, Bremen HS

    “The students and staff really enjoyed the assembly and were very pleased with the experience. I heard SEVERAL times how having Attaboy was much better than other assemblies we've had in the past!"
    Amber Maurice, Guidance Counselor, Triton Central MS


    “The music was great, and it was so much easier to relate to than other assemblies.”
    Olivia, HS Student

    “It’s not often that you see a bunch of high school kids getting up and into an assembly.”
    Joe, HS Student

    “I thought the message was very powerful. It was something new and refreshing.”
    Ashley, HS Student

    “I thought it was really fun, and I really enjoyed it. Normally when you have school assemblies, they’re kind of boring, and the speakers tell you the same stuff over and over again. I think Attaboy brought a new story, and I was really into it.”
    Laura, HS Student

    “One of my favorite assemblies.”
    Jason, HS Student

    Stand your ground.  Don't back down.

    What does it mean to stand your ground? People today are
    constantly making commitments and breaking them.  Look at
    divorce rates, credit card debts, New Years's resolutions... and
    the list of unfulfilled promises goes on.  It it even possible to
    keep our commitments?

    Stand your ground,  Don't back down.

    Joel Penton says, "Yes it is possible" - he knows from
    experience.  Like most of your students, Joel was put into
    situations in middle school and high school where it would
    have been easy to compromise and break his commitments.
    However, he chose to rise above the pressure and keep the
    committments he made in school, in football, and in life.

    Stand your ground.  Don't back down.

    Joe will say that it takes character, it takes will, and the road
    will be hard.  But his personal experience is proof that ordinary
    people can accomplish great things by simply following through
    with the commitments they have made.  Your students will be
    inspired and reminded of the importance of not just making
    committments, but also keep those commitments.

    Don't back down.  Stand your ground.
