“I attended every one of the assemblies and was impressed at the ability of the three performers to adjust and adapt to the various grade levels. The K-3 grade students really loved the music and were an excited audience. Grades 4-6 took a little bit of time to warm up, but they got into it! One of my biggest concerns was about the Middle school kids, especially since they seem to be the ones who always sit back and say: "go ahead, just try to impress me." Well, I was pleasantly surprised to watch as these students became enthralled in the personal stories and with the songs/lyrics of our three young performers. In fact, teachers mentioned afterwards that the students seemed more attentive and engaged than in any assembly they could remember.
Greg and the middle school Principal, Clay Emery, created a survey for the 7th and 8th graders and there was tremendous response. In fact, 370 students out of the 460 enrolled, replied to the survey. That is incredible! Our alternative school has about 75 students and they had their own assembly and seemed to be quite impressed and touched by what was said and shared through song. My other huge concern was wondering how our students at Safford High School would respond. We had 800 students in the Center for the Arts and to get high school students to wave their arms in the air or clap to the beat isn't easy, and I think the three performers knew that. However, Luke, Jess, and Chaylyn seems to be electrified as they came out on stage and saw the audience. They were immediately able to identify with these students and our kids identified with the three because they are all close to the same age. It was by far the best assembly of the three days.....and they were all excellent! The message to our students that they Matter, that they have Value, and that they have a Purpose could not have come at a more needed time.
We also appreciate them going to the schools during the school day, eating lunch with students, visiting classes, and sharing time. I highly recommend these assemblies to any and all schools.”

Q: WHAT HAPPENS DURING AN ASSEMBLY?
A: The assembly is a blend of pop music and stories led by Jess Angelique and other student-aged performers.
Q: WHY use music in an assembly?
A: Music captures students' attention and the lyrics support your message of positive self-worth, respecting others and being the best you can be.
Also, the message of the music continues weeks and months after the assembly as your students remember the songs and their positive message.
Q: WHAT IS THE TARGET AGE OF JESS ANGELIQUE ASSEMBLIES?
A: We tailor the event toward the age of your students focusing on self-worth.
Q: HOW LONG IS A JESS ANGELIQUE ASSEMBLY?
A: We tailor the assembly to your needs. Generally the assembly lasts between 45 minutes to 1:15.
Q: Is there a concern with the performers being young?
A: It is actually a benefit. They will relate to your students as they understand how to communicate your message to youth not much younger than themselves. The performers are gifted speakers and musicians that range in age from 19 to 21 years old.
Q: WHAT IS THE FEE TO BRING IN A JESS ANGELIQUE ASSEMBLY?
A: Obviously, this is a difficult question to answer for both of us. You have a limited budget. We have expenses getting to your school. We all have the goal of helping students cope with everyday challenges.
As you are considering a Jessica Angelique Assembly, a range to consider is $1000 to $2500 for a day of programming. Let us know you are interested and we will go to work finding other schools in your area.
The more flexible you are in scheduling the more flexible we can be with pricing as there is a cost in travel and routing of the event.
We also greatly appreciate your help in connecting us to schools in your area that could coordinate a day of programming before or after we are at your district.
Answers are best determined with a phone call.
