Get a JUMP! on School

WQLN Education is making BIG plans to ignite, inspire, and engage the academic potential of all students, from kindergarteners to seniors in high school, who are preparing for the 2016-17 school year. On Sunday, August 14, 2016, from 11am to 3pm, we will present the JUMP! Back to School Expo at a brand new location in the Penn State Behrend Junker Center. JUMP! will provide families a one-stop experience of the latest in products, services, and resources that will contribute to their child's academic success. Students will have a chance to JUMP! into technology, science, and math when they visit some of the cool exhibits. And this year, admission is FREE!

JUMP! is presented by WQLN Education and sponsored by Sarris Candies.

All proceeds from JUMP! will benefit WQLN Education, which is committed to improving the lives of children in our community by intersecting media and learning, providing teachers and parents the tools to encourage learning in the classroom and home, and strengthening community partnerships that foster early childhood education.
