On Thursday, February 18th, 2016, Art City Elementary School had the opportunity to hear from Steve James, a motivational speaker who helps students become better.r”Steve James has been positively affecting the lives of children and families through his effective and entertaining school assembly programs for many years. Steve’s original music and interactive elementary school assemblies help build character, instill self-esteem, encourage good citizenship and service to the community, promote tolerance and understanding, and a whole lot more.rSteve has released several wonderful CDs that have been enjoyed by thousands of children across the nation, both in the classroom and at home. The U.S. Department of Education and The Center for Substance Abuse Prevention have called his music an “exemplary and promising” program component. But Steve’s true genius for motivating kids to be better can only be appreciated in a live school assembly.
Steve’s innovative and entertaining school assemblies change children’s lives. His catchy and original tunes deal with peer pressure, being nice to others, honesty, friendship, thinking positive, and many other important topics.” (quote from Green Light Booking)
