Attaboy is a band with a positive message for students.

    By uniquely combining energic and relevant music with a powerful spoken message, the band is impacting students more effectively than ever before.

    Administrators agree. In fact, over 98% of schools that hosted Attaboy said the band’s presentation was better than other assemblies they’ve had in the past.

    Attaboy is NOT a group that just recounts stories of past mistakes, hoping to scare students into making positive choices. Rather, the band shares personal experiences of taking a stand for what is right and encourages students to make their own decisions.

    Students everywhere are saying that a school assembly with Attaboy is one of the most engaging and relatable assemblies they have attended.

    It’s easy to understand why.

    Stand your ground.  Don't back down.

    What does it mean to stand your ground? People today are
    constantly making commitments and breaking them.  Look at
    divorce rates, credit card debts, New Years's resolutions... and
    the list of unfulfilled promises goes on.  It it even possible to
    keep our commitments?

    Stand your ground,  Don't back down.

    Joel Penton says, "Yes it is possible" - he knows from
    experience.  Like most of your students, Joel was put into
    situations in middle school and high school where it would
    have been easy to compromise and break his commitments.
    However, he chose to rise above the pressure and keep the
    committments he made in school, in football, and in life.

    Stand your ground.  Don't back down.

    Joe will say that it takes character, it takes will, and the road
    will be hard.  But his personal experience is proof that ordinary
    people can accomplish great things by simply following through
    with the commitments they have made.  Your students will be
    inspired and reminded of the importance of not just making
    committments, but also keep those commitments.

    Don't back down.  Stand your ground.
