KSPS Weekly Education Newsletter
June 15, 2020 - June 19, 2020
The mission of KSPS is to provide on-air, online and multimedia programs that entertain, engage and educate to all the communities we serve.
Dear Caregivers and Educators,

As the school year comes to an end, we know that your children and students will not be able to participate in many of the traditional summer time activities. We want you to know that KSPS is here to support you. Beginning this week, we'll be providing a weekly e-newsletter that will include a variety of engaging and fun activities for children of all ages and a curated list of PBS educational programming that you can watch together.
 

Kind regards,
Bukola Breczinski
