A Note From The Principal’s Office

Posted By SuperU! | Posted in News | Thursday, July 17th, 2014

The Super U Challenge will be starting our 7th season of touring schools this coming school. Since we began, we have always operated with one mission statement in mind: “Provide schools with a quality performance that engages and motivates students in a unique and entertaining way.” Nothing makes us more proud than hearing feedback from Principals that our show was well received and that the students connected with the messages in the show. Below are a few letters from schools that reaffirm that after 7 years we are still meeting the goals of our mission statement.

As we start the 2014/15 school year, we will continue to improve and expand our assembly program to make sure we are meeting the every changing needs and character education / PBS(PBIS) goals of schools across the country.

Amelia Elementary Hosts Super U! Challenge Character Program

Posted By SuperU! | Posted in News | Monday, September 10th, 2012

reprinted from West Clermont Local School District Newsletter

Elementary students at Amelia Elementary in the West Clermont Local School district participated in an action-packed school assembly that promoted a bully-free school environment by encouraging students to make positive character choices when interacting with peers and stop bullying behavior.

The 45 minute presentation was all about challenging students to become their own “personal super heroes” and let their best character traits shine – at school and at home.

The Super U! Challenge was designed after classic Kid’s TV game shows such as “Double Dare” and the current Nickelodeon smash-hit “Figure It Out”. During the program for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade contestants from the audience were invited to take part some “crazy”  interactive challenges that involved everything from Superman’s underwear to a hat full of oozing, green slime.  While they were cheering and having fun, they were also learning, as each challenge was meant so support an important “life lesson” topic that ranged from respecting others to building relationships with trust.

Unlike a traditional “quiz show” assembly that requires students to answer questions about curriculum, The Super U! Challenge did not put students “on-the-spot” or require that they have memorized any facts. The only requirement of the hand-on challenges was that the volunteers (and the audience!) were ready to have fun. Students from all grade levels were able to participate in the show – and as soon as they saw the wild challenges, there was never any shortage of eager volunteers.

In addition to helping kids identify bullying behavior and encouraging positive character traits, The Super U! Challenge also promoted teamwork, good sportsmanship, and cooperation among students.

The Super U! Challenge will be visiting over 100 schools in Ohio for the 2012-13 school year, helping schools promote their a safe school environment.  Schools find the program a great way to complement their specific character education programs that they are implementing in their school. If your school is in Cincinnati or Dayton, we are currently offering some discounts and grants for booking this program. Booking dates are also available for Cleveland, Toledo and Columbus areas.

Super U! Challenge Comes to California

Posted By SuperU! | Posted in News | Thursday, September 6th, 2012

 

Due to the high number of requests we get from California schools, we are excited to announce that The Super U! Challenge will be available for school assemblies in California for the 2012-13 school year.

This is the first year this popular bullying and respect assembly will be touring California. Since 2009, however, the show has been presented at over 500 schools across the Midwest and East Coast. Read more about this show to see why the Super U! Challenge is always the most talked about school assembly of the year.

Super U! Challenge helps California schools meet educational enrichment requirements for anti-bullying and behavior programs, as well as remind students about the importance of respect and responsibility towards others.  It is also an excellent way for schools to energize students to get them thinking about character and behavior choices as they reach the middle of the school year.

During the California tour dates, Super U! Challenge will be available for either morning or afternoon assembly sessions at each school, as well as for evening family night presentations. The program can be presented as one all school assembly, or the audience can be broken down into 2 or 3 back-to back performances.

Dates for school assemblies in California are:

December 3-7, 2012 (Southern California)
February 4-13, 2013 (All of California)

During these dates, Super U! Challenge will be available for booking at a discounted fee to California schools. Booking space is limited and open dates will fill up quickly.

If the above dates do not work in your school’s schedule, discounts can still be arranged for other times of the year if three of more schools in a district schedule the program on consecutive days.  Performances at a single school can also be scheduled for other times of the year at the full booking fee.

For information about having the Super U! Challenge come to your California school this school year, contact us today!

Character Education Show In Armada Schools

Posted By SuperU! | Posted in News | Wednesday, September 5th, 2012



This article originally appeared in the Armada Voice, when the Super U! Challenge was presented at Krause Elementary School in Armada. The article gives an overview of the show and shows how the program ties in important character education messages.







Armada Students Learn Life Lessons Through Entertainment
By Matthew Fahr, Armada Times Reporter

ARMADA, MI  It is not often slime and superhero costumes can be used to explain bullying at the elementary level, but Chris and Brandy Lynn of Midwest School Shows did just that last Thursday morning at Krause Elementary.

The pair came to put on their “Super U Challenge” show for a gymnasium packed with enthusiastic and curious students.

The “Super U Challenge” is an interactive game-show style program that reinforces messages about friendship, bullying and making positive choices.

“It gives kids 45 minutes out of their day to have fun and learn life lessons that hopefully they take home with them and remember long after we are gone,” Lynn said of his show.

They mimic a Nickelodeon game show and use slime in one game and in another students race to put on a superhero costume in front of their classmates.

“It really gets the message across,” Lynn said of the show. “You don’t want it to be a lecture or all fun, but you have to find the right balance for the kids to stay attuned to what you want to get across.”

Aside from slime and superhero costumes, they use colorful props and animated games to help teach students about trust and respect of their fellow classmates.

“It is a great time and you hope that the message is sticking with them, but making it fun gives the kids something to remember later,” Lynn said. “They get to have fun and get the themes through to them at the same time.”

The Sterling Heights based company, Midwest School Shows,  was created by Brandy 10 years ago and the “Super U Challenge” is in its third school year of traveling through the Midwest.

Lynn said the group books over 300 shows per year and that the Armada show was about the 70th or 80th show they’d done this year.

He said there are about six different sets of people who travel on behalf of the organization. The group offers shows on over 20 different topics, for students of all ages, ranging from bullying and character eduction to science and reading skills.

“I have a great time performing for kids,” Lynn said of his job. “I tell my friends that I get paid to travel and the shows are done for free.”

The pair did a show in Cincinnati the day before coming to Armada for the first time and they were scheduled for a show in Dearborn the next afternoon.

“It keeps us pretty busy,” Lynn said. “I am amazed at how organized she (Brandy) is with coordinating everything because we are constantly out on the road and always on the go.”

Preparing For Super U! At Your School

Posted By SuperU! | Posted in News | Thursday, August 9th, 2012

 

WHAT TO EXPECT THE DAY OF THE SHOW

It is our goal to make the Super U! Challenge one of the easiest and most hassle-free school assemblies you will ever bring to your school. The program is self-contained and requires no assistance for set-up or special equipment.

A little pre-show planning, will help make sure the school assembly performances run smoothly and avoid any last minute surprises. A few things you should review before the show day are highlighted below.

ARRIVAL TIME AND SET-UP:
The presenters will arrive approximately 45 minute before the start of the first assembly to unload and set-up. They will need access to the performance space at that time. Please be sure that the performance area is clear and that there are no other programs scheduled in the space during the set-up time. If there is a scheduling conflict in the space, please let us know and we can arrange to work around it.

PERFORMANCE SPACE:
Super U! Challenge needs a performance space for school assemblies that is a minimum of 24 feet wide x 18 feet deep (from back wall to first row of students). If the show is going to be on a stage, there must be steps or access to the audience for the host to bring up volunteers from the audience. The show can work with smaller spaces, but please let us know before the performance date.

REQUIREMENTS:
Super U! Challenge brings everything they need for the show, including a sound system. The presenters will need access to an electrical outlet near the performance space, but otherwise, there is nothing else your school needs to provide (except of course, an audience of smiling students).

AUDIENCE SEATING:
The audience should be divided into two sections with a small aisle down the middle for the assembly presenters to walk. The presenters have cones and markers to help mark the aisle and define the audience seating areas for the school assembly. If it is bleacher seating, we can work to divide the audience as evenly as possible. During the show, these audience sections will be divided into teams for the challenges. There should be a mixture of grades in each section of the audience (example: one first grade class on one side and one first grade class on the other side….etc). This avoids having a team of all younger students competing against a team of all older students.

SET-UP EXAMPLE:

Below is a graphic of a typical set-up for school assemblies on a gym or cafeteria floor.

Set-up Graphic

 

 

START TIMES:
The show is expected to start at times listed on your performance agreement. Please start having students come down to the assembly 5-10 minutes before the show to ensure the program starts on time. The program is often booked in multiple schools in one day, so if the assembly program starts late at your school, the performance may have to be shortened. If there needs to be a time change, please let us know before the day of the assembly.

PAYMENT:
The balance payment for the performance is due the day of the show and should be given to the presenters before the start of the first presentation. Payment requests should be made with the school district or treasurer with enough advance time to have the payment ready when it is due. If any paperwork or additional invoices are needed, please contact our office immediately and we will be happy to submit them to ensure smooth payment. If you prefer to pay by credit card, please call our office.

INCLEMENT WEATHER:
If there is a cancellation or delay in school due to inclement weather, please call our office to alert us of the closing. An emergency phone number for the presenter is also listed on the performance agreement for you to contact. To avoid losing the deposit paid, all assemblies canceled due to weather must be rescheduled.

If you have any other questions or concerns at your school assembly date approaches, please feel free to contact us.
