Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The Magic School Bus is based on a series of children's books about science written by Joanna Cole. The show features the ingenious Ms. Frizzle, an elementary school teacher and intrepid explorer who piles her students into her Magic School Bus and takes them on amazing field trips to impossible locations. The goal of each field trip is to answer questions or learn many new things about the place the class visits. Each episode is a fact filled expedition to places as diverse as the solar system, the human body or even inside weather systems. The bus transforms to suit the environment and the kids freely explore and share their learning with each other and with Ms. Frizzle, who nudges her students to "make connections" and answer their own questions with research. The class pet, Lizzie, accompanies the class on their field trips. The content of the show is appropriate for children from aes 4 to 9 and in addition to all the factual content, the children also have a socio-emotional problem to solve that is embedded into the story line. This show was pre-empted on 7/2/11 due to Wimbledon.

Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. WHAG, in conjuction with the NBC affiliation, aired a number of PSA's "The More You Know" PSA's. The July total was 109, the August total was 98 and the September total was 74. The :10 and :30 themes of these PSA's deal with the enviornment, tolerance, mentoring, and violence prevention. The More You Know's website (www.nbc.com/tmyk) features scripts from the award-winning public service anouncements, referral information for the organizations referenced in the PSA's, a general campaign over view, and educational metarials produced in connection with NBC programming. The site also includs al ist of the campaign's most recent accolades. During the quarter, there were 24 news stories appropriate for children that aired on either the 5PM or 6PM newscast. The content of these stories ranged from...Fourth of July may be over, but kinds in winchester weren't forgetting why we celebrate Independance Day. Kids from all over gathered at the Museum of the Snenahdoah Valley to learn about the presidents, play historic games, and learned how people from the past celebrated the 4th of July...Summer youth camps all over Washington County enjoyed a fun day at Marty Snook Memorial Park at the 8th Annual Happy Campers Day...The Crossroads Community Church Youth Group repainted Victory House, a transitional home for veterans. Kids Cast - every Wednesday during our 5PM newscast weather segment, a third to fifth grade school student gives our weather forecast. Children draw a picture of "weather events" and submits it to our local Kids Cast sponsors. Each week, a picture is chosen, and the child that drew it sits in on our live news set and delivers the local weather. The child arrives early and in addition to learning about the weather, they get to see how a live newscast works "behind the scenes". During the month of July 61 30-second promos for the WHAG Student Athlete of the Month. During the month of August 61 promos aired, and during the month of September 61 promos aired. The community nominates the students. Then each month, a male and female athlete is chosen for their outstanding efforts in the classroom and on the field. A feature story is done on each winner and aired within the local news. Congratulations promos air during the following month.
