There will be construction on 24th Avenue between 27th and 30th Streets the week of May
13 – 17. The road will not be closed, but students and parents are urged to use caution
when driving this street or encouraged to find another route to school to avoid this
construction zone. Thank you for your cooperation!

MHS' creative arts magazine, Kaleidoscript, is now available at the MHS Bookstore for $3.00. The 46th edition is packed with student-generated talent and makes for a wonderful keepsake. Get your copy before they are all gone, and thank you for your support of our talented students.
Watch Spring Highlights!
There are a lot of activities going on at Moline High School this spring. Click on these links to view videos of some of the many events that have been happening!
MHS goes Google!
Moline High School is very excited to announce that this fall students will have access to mail and collaboration materials powered by Google. This includes Google Docs, Gmail, Calendar, and Google Sites! Please watch for the “Google Parent Permission” form at registration, that must be completed prior to students receiving an account. More information about what Google has to offer our students is available at: http://www.google.com/enterprise/apps/education/benefits.html
Attention Seniors and Parents
Do you know where you are attending college in the fall? If so, be sure to ask Mrs. Hastings, in the Registrar's Office, to have your final transcript sent to that school. Be sure to do this before the end of the school year. Parents are not able to request this for students once they graduate. It is a privacy law.
Art Students Win Awards!
Moline High School students were the winners of four out of six Brand Boeshaar Scholarships awarded by the Figge Art Museum. Davenport resident Lillian L. Brand established the Brand Boeshaar Scholarship in memory of her nephew, William Brand Boeshaar, an art student who attended St. Ambrose University. Four $12,000 scholarships are awarded each spring, and each scholarship is named after one of Lillian L. Brand’s family members. The competition is open to graduating high school seniors in eastern Iowa and western Illinois, and recipients may use the scholarship for any accredited college art program. Since the inception of the scholarship in 2000, the Brand Boeshaar Foundation has awarded 40 scholarships totaling $480,000.
Congratulations to the 2013 Scholarship Recipients:
The Isabelle M. Brand Scholarship: Marina Kruger, Moline High School
The Lucille Brand Boeshaar Scholarship: Emily Grooms, Moline High School
Honorable Mention: Chris Miller, Moline High School
Honorable Mention: Lilia Torres, Moline High School

Important Information for all students on new Immunization Requirements
In January of this year, the Department of Public Health adopted changes for immunization requirements. Beginning next school year, Fall of 2013, all students entering, transferring, or advancing into 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grades will be required to show proof of receipt of one dose of Tdap vaccine (containing tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis). Most students may have already received the vaccine and simply need to provide the school with verifying documentation from the family health care provider.
Grade reports available online
A feature is available in Skyward Family Access that allows parents/guardians to view their student’s report cards and progress grades online. As a result of this access, report cards/grade reports will no longer be printed and sent home, unless the parent/guardian requests to continue receiving a paper copy. Click here to download the printed report request.
To view report cards, log-in to Skyward Family Access. On the main screen under “General Information” there is a link to "Report Cards." Click on that link and a list of available grade reports will be displayed. Select the grade report you wish to view and a copy will open up in pdf format which is available for printing.
If you need to sign-up for Family Access, click here to download the “Family Access” form. Fill out the form, print it, and bring it, along with a valid ID, to the MHS main office between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Forms are also available in the main office.
