The Fun Way to Teach Health & Fitness

Posted On: March 02, 2014

We've all heard the statistics from the AMA Journal: Obesity has doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years. In 2012, more than one-third of our children were overweight or obese.

Schools play a particularly critical role in reversing the trend by providing opportunities for students to learn about and practice healthy eating and physical activity, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

The Health & Fitness assembly program from Hollyrock Entertainment is a great place to start. Like all our shows, it combines learning with fast-paced, high-energy  fun that encourages all children to participate.

Educators and camp directors facing the challenge of teaching good habits to our kids can look no further than Hollyrock for a Health & Fitness program that entertains as well as informs.

Contact Hollyrock for information on Health & Fitness Assemblies for all ages.

Stop the Bullying!

Posted On: November 13, 2013

With the advent of social media, opportunities for schoolchildren to bully or be bullied reach far beyond the classroom walls and extend long after the school bell rings. It seems the media regularly report stories of children who take desperate measures to end bullying they experience from classmates.

School teachers and administrators are searching for ways to prevent the problem from going too far in their own schools. Others are looking to remedy an existing problem. What they're looking for is a way to attack the issue in a positive, memorable way.

Hollyrock Entertainment is proud to take an active role in efforts to stop bullying and teasing in schools. We offer Anti-Bullying Assemblies that teach respect and consideration to all age groups. Our unique "game show"-style school shows have been well received throughout the East Coast.

Our Anti-Bullying Assemblies are effective, reponsible educational entertainment that follows a TV game show format. Questions for our Anti-Bullying Assemblies were written by noted New York clinical and child psychologist Dr. Howard Gurr.  For more information on this important topic, call us at 516-364-5408.

Happy New Year From Hollyrock!

Posted On: January 10, 2013

Happy New Year from all of us here at Hollyrock entertainment! It's been another great one for us and we hope that we were able to share some portion of it with you. If not, their is always this year for you to give us a call and set up a assembly; why not a casino night down at the senior center (Bingo is a must of course), or get 2013 off to "Rocking" or "Hip-Hopping" start by having us down to D.J. your son's Bar Mitzvah or daughter's confirmation party. No matter what the occasion we here at Hollyrock entertainment have exactly what it is you are looking for. Whether it be to organize the whole event or just provide an extra degree or area of enjoyment, we will never let you or you party/assembly down. For over 30 years we have been showing our clientele in the entertainment arena a great time and wish to extend our services to you as well. There are few ideas we won't consider in helping you create that special event and we are always expanding our offering's to not only keep up with the times but with the people's tastes in the age groups we cater too. "Honey Mooners" jokes most likely won't fly with the children just like few if any of our senior groups know who Justin Beiber is. The knowledge of genres our experienced staff has is quite vast and we always know just the right representative to send to which event. We hope that your 2012 was a blast and look forward to sharing the blessing of a fresh start with you this 2013.

Bring Informative Assemblies to Your School!

Posted On: October 29, 2012

School bullying has been proven to have serious negative impacts on children of all ages– both mentally and physically and has continued to see an increase of public concern over the last several decades. Different approaches and programs have been put into place by the public school systems to bring knowledge to our children on the damage done by these hurtful displays of bullying and victimization. It is important that we educate ourselves and our children on the realization that bullying is a major issue within our school systems that can be eliminated with the right tools. Great avenues for education on these issues are in school assemblies, with topics varying from not only bully awareness, but also peer pressure, internet safety, drug and alcohol awareness and any other topic that is hitting home in your school district. These programs are a great way to capture student attention and naturally discuss preventative ideas that in other ways would not be easily conveyed with young children.  For over 20 years, Hollyrock Entertainment has been an advocate in this process of age appropriate Assembly Programs throughout New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania - you can read our ever growing School Assembly Testimonals in addition to viewing our School Assembly Program pages, including Elementary School Programs, Middle School Programs, and High School Programs, to learn more about what Hollyrock Entertainment can do for your school!
