Students in the Drama Kids Club from the Valley Stream Union Free School District Thirteen’s Wheeler Avenue Elementary School recently had the exciting experience of filming an appearance for NBC’s The Today Show. The segment is set to air on Friday, April 27, during the show’s fourth hour of programming at 10 a.m.— Today with Kathie Lee and Hoda.
The students were asked to play with an age appropriate toy as the Today hosts and Toy Insider Mom Laurie Schacht discussed this season’s trending toys that are perfect for springtime weather. Following the taping, the students received a tour of the historic Studio 1A and learned about the intricacies of producing a live broadcast. The District is always seeking ways to provide students with unique educational experiences outside of the classroom—and giving students the opportunity of being part of a top-rated, nationwide morning show surely counts as a unique educational experience.
