MPTV Hosts First DAY OF THE CHILD on May 1

Milwaukee, WI - PBS characters Maya and Miguel will be on hand to greet children at MPTV's first El Dia de los Niņos/Day of the Child on Friday, May 1, at 1036 N. 8th Street. Two sessions will run from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. and from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. This is a free event for children ages four through eight. Reservations are required due to limited space, and schools are limited to bringing classes of 30 children or fewer.

MPTV's celebration of children includes mural making, creating milagros, storytelling, crown decorating, photo opportunities with Miguel and Maya (bring own camera), and other fun activities which bolster children's confidence, develop skills, encourage setting goals, and promote an appreciation for multiculturalism.

For reservations and more information, contact Darlyne Haertlein, MPTV Community Relations at (414) 297-7514 or haertled@matc.edu.
