WKTV Meteorologist Bill Kardas Visits Westmoreland Road Elementary School

A handful of Westmoreland Road Elementary School’s students were able to meet a familiar face on television - - in-person.  Bill Kardas with students

WKTV Meteorologist Bill Kardas visited the school’s third grade students on December 9 to discuss the basics of weather.

Kardas’ visit coincided with a unit on weather, which the third graders studied for a couple of weeks.

While at Westmoreland Road Elementary School, Kardas discussed many topics, including the dangers of extreme weather, the difference between snow, sleet and hail and how thunderstorms form. He gave two presentations - - each to a different group of third graders - - and students were able to ask him questions at the end.

Westmoreland Elementary School would like to thank Bill Kardas for taking time out of his busy schedule to meet with its students to further educate them about the weather!
