Themes of taking responsibility, being patient and persistent in hard work, respecting peoples' privacy, learning to cope with unforseen changes and being honest, are presented in this animated series centered on the young orphaned elephant who becomes king. Based on the books by Laurent de Brunhoff. Specific topics in this quarter's shows included: lying and making excuses will not work, you must work hard to get what you really want; complaining to others is not the way to deal with something your parents say, you should talk to them directly; and if you want to help, make sure you understand what's needed, or you might cause confusion and a mess.

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. Broadcast efforts targeted at younger audiences include the weekly 'My School' segment within scheduled newscasts, narrated by students who show what makes their learning environments unique. We also air 'CNY Central Athlete' weekly, featuring high school sports stars who are also academic standouts. Off-air, staffers are also committed to age-appropriate interactions which encourage math and reading skills, as well as understanding technology and career planning: grade school-aged groups are welcomed in station tours that emphasize workplace applications of skills being learned; we attend career choice fairs for middle- and high schoolers who are also encouraged to apply for day-long job shadows, and college students interested in broadcasting are eligible for semester-long internships in several areas of the broadcast center. In addition, we are gearing up for our 25th year of Book Breaks, with staffers reading to children at area libraries in an effort to keep up reading skills over the summer.
