I've create a jsFiddle here:
Click the broken image and my content will pop up.
I would like my content to slide in from the top of the browser window and stop in the center.
<div id="assignments-main-container">
    <img id="show-hidden-popup" class='click-assignments' src="~/Content/ImagesAppBar/appBar-Assignment.png" style="width: 58px; height: 50px;" />
    <p class='click-assignments' style="margin-top: 5px; font-size: x-small;">

    <style type="text/css">
        .notifier-Container {
            position: fixed;
            top: 0;
            left: 0;
            width: 100%;
            height: 100%;
            z-index: 100;

            cursor: default;

@jagadishdulal, the .show("slow") method simply implements a "fade-in" effect from the position I set in the CSS.  I do not want to use an image to slide down from the top of the browser, jQuery does not require it as it can animate the div.  However, the animate() method does not show a hidden element so I'm looking for a some magic trickery to get the job done!

A much simpler version here:

BTW, using long id and class names are confusing and bad for maintenance. To make it easier, try using shorter names. Hope this helps!!

The slide effect back up does not work, however, since I did not explicitly ask for that in this question, I cannot complain!!
Great work, thank you so much!
