Pricing and Booking Information
Here’s how to book the assembly programs that you want and your students will LOVE!
The fees for the presentations are $775 for a full-day (3–4 presentations – split between morning and afternoon), or $475 for a half day (1–2 presentations back-to-back in the morning or afternoon).
A full day can be split between two schools at no additional charge. Thus you could have 2 assemblies at your school in the morning and again at a different school in the after-noon. Each school would pay one half of the full day fee ($387.50 each). This will allow each school to have up to two assemblies. The only caveats are that both schools must book the same program, and on the same day, of course. Also, each school must be in the same or neighboring school system.
The After-school program is $475 for one single program.
However, if the after-school program follows a half-day or full-day of programs the additional after-school presentation can be added for only $250. These events are a single performance given after school dismisses but before 5:00 p.m. Your choice of program may be limited by what program(s) were presented during the day. Sometimes an after-school event can be booked or shared with a neighboring school. For instance, if School A books a half-day or full-day, then School B could take the discount for the after-school program. This option is limited to schools that are in the same or neighboring systems. Additionally, an after-school event can only be booked AFTER a full or half-day has been booked on the same date in said school, or neighboring school.
Evening Programs are a great way to promote book fairs, science night, reward programs, fund-raisers, family-nights, and a guaranteed way to increase parent involvement in the PTA/PTO. These programs usually occur after 5:00 p.m. and often include students, parents and family members in attendance. Evening programs are $475 for one single program.
However, for maximum impact and effectiveness you may want to schedule this program on the same night as the day time program. Perhaps as a follow-up or emphasis to proceeding events. Should this be the case, the additional evening presentation can be added for only $275. The evening program will ALWAYS be different from the program that was presented at your school during the day unless you specifically request otherwise.
*Travel fees may apply. However, we offer incentives that can reduce/waive travel expenses.
To Book a Program for Your School or Library
First, read through the website and decide which program you want. Keep in mind that all of our educationally significant programs promote reading and library use, and get the kids so excited about reading that they can’t wait to get to the library to check out the books we discuss.
Next, you need to decide how many assemblies you will need to get all the students in to see the program. Depending on how the set up at the school is, we can break the students into groups as large as 175 kids if they are sitting on the same level as the presenter (like a gym floor). Any more than this and the kids in the back feel that they can’t see and it is a constant battle to keep them seated. No one gets as much out of the program in these situations. If a differentiated performance area can be provided (such as a stage for the performer, OR risers or tiered seating like bleachers for the kids) then our presenter can handle as many as 600 students at a time.
Now, decide on a date(s).
At this point, complete the online contact form including your chosen date(s). You may also email or call 601-940-9930 with this information. If we are not able to answer the phone, leave a message and you will hear from us within 24-48 hours. If there is a date conflict I will get in touch with you to see if an alternative date can be agreed on.
After we book the assemblies (and any other schools in you area) you will receive a “Performance Agreement” that will serve as both a confirmation letter and invoice.
For years, it has been my goal to be the EASIEST assembly visit you will ever bring to your school. Check out some of the testimonials on this website to see what other schools and libraries have had to say about the programs we offer and you’ll understand why so many schools invite me back, time after time.
