"The presentation by Nate Roe was engaging, heartwarming, and truly provided the students with a message to live by. Hearing from a Professional Baseball Player discussing healthy eating habits, hard work, determination, sacrifice and goal setting in such a dynamic and enthusiastic way from a role model has created a buzz amongst our fifth graders as they are striving to hit a 'homerun.' The messages Nate provided concerning safety, leadership, bullying and healthy choices has now resonated throughout our 5th grade. Parents have approached the administration and staff on how positive their children were about the assembly program."
