NS - Everyday Leader assembly

Ronald McDonald presents an "Everyday Leader" assembly for grades K-3. This show is designed to inspire elementary age children to grow into “everyday leaders” at home, school and in the community.

This 40-minute, fun-filled, educational program uses a creative mix of music, magic, puppetry, audience participation and games to reinforce the value of becoming “everyday leaders,” the positive effects it has, and the enjoyment that comes from it.

“Everyday Leader with Ronald McDonald” helps kids learn the attributes of being a true leader. The key elements of the show are:

Leaders - know how to lead and follow
Listen – the importance of being a good listener
Example – be a good example, set goals
Action – actions speak louder than words, be responsible for your actions
Do – do what’s right and do your best even when no one is watching

In addition, the show reinforces the importance of working together, taking responsibility for your own actions, making good choices and being a good example for others. Ronald McDonald delivers a powerful and positive message to children that will help them grow into “everyday leaders” that inspire others to be their best to make the world a better place.
