The mission of KLRN is to open a world of lifelong learning through trustworthy and enriching programs on-air, online and in our community.
Happy New Year Wishes & Greetings,

The New Year brings the excitement of new beginnings, new experiences and new opportunities to learn and grow. The enthusiasm and wonder of children reminds us that each child goes to school with tremendous hopefulness and anticipation for their very best year.

Another year of learning, anticipation, wonder and fun lies ahead. We are excited in sharing educational information and looking forward to all the gains we will achieve by working together this year.

A New Year is like a blank book, and the pen is in your hands. It is your chance to write a beautiful story for yourself and your family. 

You can find additional resources at, a trusted PBS source.

With appreciation,

Sesame Street in Communities
Every day, you make a difference by helping kids and families grow smarter, stronger, and kinder. Sesame Workshop has created Sesame Street in Communities to support you in this critical work. You’ll find hundreds of bilingual multimedia tools to engage kids and adults in everyday moments and daily routines—from teaching early math and literacy concepts, to encouraging families to eat nutritious foods, to serious topics such as divorce and food insecurity.
Healthy Kids Project - Healthy Choices A to Z
KLRN's Healthy Kids Project supports healthy lifestyles by influencing eating decisions and physical activities. Through project resources, the audience is introduced to songs, live action movement, animation, and a cast of “perfectly imperfect” characters to deliver key messaging that contrasts healthy choices and attitudes with unhealthy behaviors. Lessons include activities for children ages 0-9 and all school age lessons are aligned to the TEKS. 

Videos available in English & Spanish.
