Super U! Challenge Assembly:

Third, fourth and fifth grade students at Amelia Elementary participated in an action-packed school assembly that promoted a bully-free school environment by encouraging students to build positive character traits and identify (and stop!) bullying behavior. It was all about challenging students to become their own “personal super heroes” and let their best traits shine – at school and at home.

The Super U! Challenge was designed after classic Kid’s TV game shows such as “Double Dare” and the current Nickelodeon smash-hit “Brain Surge”. During the 45-minute show, contestants from the audience were invited to take part in imaginative, funny, and wacky interactive challenges that involved oversize props, creative costumes, and yes…even some slime!  Each exciting challenge was based around a specific message about bullying and positive character traits that reinforces what students hear in school.

Unlike a traditional “quiz show” assembly that requires students to answer questions about curriculum, The Super U! Challenge did not put students “on-the-spot” or require that they have memorized any facts.  The only requirement of the hand-on challenges was that the volunteers (and the audience!) were ready to have fun.  Students from all grade levels were able to participate in the show – and as soon as they saw the wild challenges, there was never any shortage of eager volunteers.

In addition to helping kids identify bullying behavior and encouraging positive character traits, The Super U! Challenge also promoted teamwork, good sportsmanship, and cooperation among students.

Topics highlighted in this program were:

  • Building friendships and trust
  • Avoid being a bully
  • How your actions build character
  • The importance of honesty
  • What to do if someone is bullying you
  • Respect
  • Being a part of a community
  • Good Sportsmanship & Teamwork
