Enlist a few TEACHER/PARENT VOLUNTEERS to assist with the Pay-It-Forward sale.
FORWARD the "MEET NED" email to all staff.
Approximately one week before the show, you will receive a "Meet NED" email from us. If your school is willing to send a staff-wide email, we highly encourage you to forward this email before we visit.
The email contains a short video for teachers and staff that summarizes our assembly program and provides a quick look at our many free resources.
If you do not receive this email within 5 days prior to your show, email your Account Executive, or download the OUTLOOK TEMPLATE of the Meet NED email and send it to all staff.
Print and distribute the TEACHER LETTER to your staff. This letter introduces our program, lesson plans, activities and resources.
Make copies of the PARENT LETTER (from Pre-Show Packet) and send it home with the students 1-2 days before the show.
For an electronic version of the Parent Letter, please email our Customer Care Team.
