From start to finish, Alden's performance was just outstanding. The students just loved him. After the performance I had a few teachers tell me how much they enjoyed the assembly. My personal favorite part of the performance was when Alden had the signs on stage for the words to the song for the students to sing along with him. I am not sure that my son knew that Alden was getting him to read, or else he would have not enjoyed the assembly so much. My son, who is 7, told me later that day that, "I am going to miss that guy, he was awesome!"

Fun songs that were musically appropriate for pre-kindergarten to second grade, well as great science and social studies connections.

Awesome, active engagement from all students. Every student had a part or job to do. Alden was fantastic! He challenged and motivated every student in a fun and meaningful way.
