Elementary School Programs

Real Character is no Accident / Free to Be Good

Created for:


Honesty, Courtesy, Integrity, Responsibility, Respect of Ourselves, Respect of Others, and Respecting Authority! It’s laughs, music and life stories to help kids choose the path of integrity! Have Jerry design a school assembly specifically for your school, using pieces that emphasize the character traits your school is currently working on!


The ‘Free to Be Good - The Antidote to Bullying’ assembly program uses comedic stories, music and audience involvement to present the following points:

After the introductory opening song featuring 228 names, the show progresses through the above mentioned points using story and song. Please note that the term “bully” is not used as kids know when they’re being preached at and keeping hearts open and positive is the goal. Also note that the feelings of the “bullied” will not be addressed since the bully needs no encouragement that his or her actions can be effective, negative though that effect may be.

Repeat Performances:

With over 60 pieces to choose from, repeat customers can always look forward to a brand new character-encouraging show.

Family Night Concerts!:

Hundreds of organizations and schools have sponsored one of Jerry Jacoby’s Family Concerts as a great way of bringing the bonding effects of humor and song to their communities. Jerry is great at reaching all ages-toddlers through grandparents so everyone can relax and enjoy a great show. Moms and Dads will especially appreciate the emphasis on clean humor and audience involvement that is always encouraging for participants, never demeaning. Since Jerry’s emphasis is always on character & integrity, his memorable stories and songs give parents another opportunity to talk about important issues with their children.

Other Assemblies:

Junior high students love Jerry’s Junior High: the best 10 years of my life, dealing with peer pressure and the sequel Hot Dogs on a Nervous Stomach which deals with decision making skills, accepting reality and getting help leads to a healthier and happier life.
