American Graduate Day returns on Saturday, September 27, 2014 from 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. (EST) on PBS stations around the country and locally on WCVW PBS. The 7-hour live broadcast celebrates the exceptional work of individuals and groups in local communities and around the country whose daily heroics help youth stay on the path to graduation.
This September, PBS KIDS makes it easy for families to stay healthy and active with PBS KIDS Eat Smart for a Great Start. Studies have shown that poor nutrition and lack of exercise can negatively impact children’s academic performance. To help start the school year off right, PBS KIDS has developed online content to provide kids and parents with resources that support health and physical activity.
