Sandy Wiseman, a Librarian at Woodsdale Elementary School, Ohio County, is named as one of 52 educators from across the country selected for the fifth annual PBS Digital Innovators Program. The program recognizes classroom changemakers: educators who skillfully approach education with a bold and fresh perspective, and who integrate digital media and resources into their classrooms in a way that sparks a love of learning for their students.

WVPB education participated in a community book festival at Mountain View Elementary School on Saturday, February 18.  Over 400 parents and children turned out for a day filled with books, stories and family activities.  

In WVPB's session clips were shown from the newest PBS KIDS show, Splash and Bubbles, about fish friends who explore themes of friendship and life in the deep ocean.   As a part of the learning session, children created their own deep sea creatures.
