Promotion Packet August 1987

Going to school may be a child’s first great transition in life. Because school is something that impacts all children, Fred Rogers devoted a week of Neighborhood episodes to the topic. This packet of materials was sent out to PBS stations to publicize the week of programs.

The press release and booklet contain helpful advice for parents whose children are starting school for the first time. Parents could write to their local PBS stations to receive a free copy of the booklet.
