The Ned Show at The Dearborn Academy

Posted Nov.3, 2015

The Dearborn Academy Student council was thrilled to bring The Ned Show to The Dearborn Academy in on Wednesday, September 30, 2015. The assembly was for K-5 students. The assembly promotes character building and is built around three principals: Never give up, encourage others, and do your best!

Ned stands for "Never give up, encourage others, and do your best!"

Part of the assembly is based around applying the three principals to learning new skills...yo-yoing!

Gary and Ned shared their adventures with students while reminding them to live by the three Ned rules each and every day. Gary showed off his amazing yo-yo skills and students were able to purchase yo-yos for the two weeks following the assembly.

Please visit for more information and classroom resources.
