KNPB presents the PBS KIDS Summer Learning Initiative at ARTOWN
More than half of the achievement gap between lower and higher income youth can be credited to unequal access to summer learning opportunities.*
To help address this, KNPB has partnered with the ARTOWN Family Series. Every Monday night in July at Wingfield Park, a PBS character will greet the whole family, kids can participate in a hands-on art or learning activity and a KNPB a staff will hand out Summer Learning Activity books that can be taken home. Information about online learning provided by PBS KIDS and the National Corporation for Public Broadcasting will be available.
As kids spend time outside of the classroom this summer, KNPB is releasing new content and resources to help keep them active and encourage exploration at home and outdoors with their favorite PBS KIDS characters.
As part of its annual summer learning initiative, PBS KIDS is airing specials and episodes from ODD SQUAD, NATURE CAT and READY JET GO! and offering free digital resources at pbsparents.org/summer to make learning fun all summer long.
