Engage students with GPB resources                    May 2018

In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, we would like to thank all Georgia teachers for their commitment and dedication to helping students achieve their dreams. In this video, First Lady of Georgia Sandra Deal and other special guests express their appreciation to Georgia teachers for all they do to inspire and encourage students.

As kids spend time outside the classroom this summer, GPB is releasing all-new content and resources to help keep them active and encourage exploration at home and outdoors with their favorite characters. As part of our annual summer learning initiative, we will air all-new specials and episodes, beginning in June, and will offer free digital resources here and at pbsparents.org/summer to make learning fun all summer long.
