We are now scheduling assemblies for September through early November 2019.
Please note that requesting an assembly does not guarantee we will be able to visit. Please wait 2-3 business days for an email from the Don’t Be A Monster team.
What:Don’t Be A Monster is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that was founded by haunted house owners and runs an engaging bullying prevention assembly that is put on by actors in the haunted house. We have an iconic mascot named Frank that is a huge hit with students. Our presentations are creative, and a lot of fun for students during the Halloween season.
Cost: Free with the exception of San Antonio, where presentations are $200.
Where: Anderson, IN / Austin, TX / Caldwell, ID / Chicago, IL / Cleveland, OH / Denver, CO / Dubai, UAE / Kansas City, MO / Lake Charles, LA / Louisville, KY / Phoenix, AZ / Pontiac, MI / Salt Lake City, UT / San Antonio, TX / Seattle, WA / St Louis, MO / Stone Mountain, GA / Ulster Park, NY / Waukesha, WI
When: Late September through early November. Availability varies across markets.
Who: Students in grades 4th – 10th, though some cities limit the range.
How Long: 45 minutes per ~300 students (but we can also present to an entire school at once). Depending on the city, some presentations are one hour long.
Content: Our assembly focuses on cyberbullying and the role of an Upstander. We help students identify cyberbullying incidents. We discuss truths/myths around cyberbullying and talk about its lasting effects and why it is so dangerous. We bust myths about usage of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and more. Additionally, students learn ways that they can be an Upstander in school. We show a short video and have a 45-minute powerpoint presentation. We also encourage schools to have a meet-and-greet with our icon character Frank. Students love meeting him!
