Ronald McDonald’s Assemblies:

On the Inside: The Importance of Good Character!
Students learn that it is their character, what’s “on the inside,” that really matters! Ronald explains the importance of being trustworthy, responsible, respectful and fair to others, and how those traits help us build strong character! Written in collaboration with top character experts and educators, this assembly strongly supports many schools’ existing character education programs.

Everyday Leader with Ronald McDonald!
In this new interactive assembly, Ronald McDonald shows the importance of how a person’s actions can help make them a leader and inspire others! Through the use of fun skits, magic and audience participation, Ronald demonstrates that although there are many different types of leaders, anyone can be an Everyday Leader! An Everyday Leader is a person who tries their best and takes responsibility for their actions. By setting a good example, students not only improve their own world, but can inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more!

It’s Book Time with Ronald McDonald!
Ronald McDonald will be visiting libraries across San Diego County during his summer tour of 2015! Ronald shares his excitement for reading and introduces many good "friends" – books! The show introduces kids to the concept of "book time," the time we set aside each day to read. In addition, the show reinforces appropriate library use, the proper care of books, and the use of excitement and imagination while reading. Ronald teaches children that reading is fun and book time is an important time of day. To see when Ronald will be visiting a library near you, view his schedule here.
