The NED Show - School Assembly logo

A new, exciting program
is coming to your school.

Dear Program Coordinator,


Thank you for giving your time and energy to planning NED’s Mindset Mission at your school! Because of your efforts, students will enjoy a fabulous character education assembly that will inspire them to have a positive mindset for learning.


We want each step to be efficient for you, so we’ve provided this guide and checklist to help you coordinate our program from beginning to end.


As you plan for the assembly, we encourage you to also explore our year-round resources for teachers, parents and kids.
