"We look forward to you returning to our school in the future for sure. Here is some of what I told them about you. We were very impressed, best show we have gotten from Lov so far. Our school loved you. Your show was Great. Very entertaining and high energy. Everyone loved it. The kids were still humming, chanting and clapping at the end of the school day. Teachers, staff and parents that were there enjoyed it too. It was awesome! We look forward to your return next year Onye!"
Sincerely, Gina Shelley and the Blacow Bobcats

Mr. Onye brought a lively, interactive, and engaging performance to our Pre K—5th grade students. His focus was on having students participate actively, rather than sitting passively. He worked with us to customize the program, aligning his comments with our schoolwide focus on celebrating diversity, mutual respect, and kindness to all. It was a pleasure working with him! Thank you again for all you did and brought to our students and families.
