Area classrooms remain closed to students due to the ongoing crisis. But, at the United Way, we believe learning opportunities should always be accessible — because kids succeeding in school and life is necessary to ensure our community’s success for years to come.
Education is one of our BOLD GOALS. That’s why we couldn’t just let parents and educators adjusting to remote learning go at it without more help. We’re pleased to announce the United Way of the Quad Cities, KWQC-TV6 and 14 local school districts have come together to develop LEARN UNITED QUAD CITIES to give educators a tool to keep students engaged in their learning at home.
LEARN UNITED is a one-hour education program brought to you by teachers and trusted community partners EVERY WEEKDAY from 3 to 4 p.m. on KWQC Channel 6, May 11 through May 29.
Area school districts, teachers and local cultural institutions are teaming up to provide this free educational content, available by broadcast and on the internet.
Each day spotlights a different school district or cultural institution and is geared to different age ranges.*
- Monday: Preschool through 2nd grade
- Tuesday: 3rd through 5th grade
- Wednesday: 6th through 8th grade
- Thursday: 9th through 12th grade
- Friday: Cultural institutions (all ages)
