Spotlight on…

Note May 6th Schedule
All freshmen and sophomore students will be taking a standardized assessment on Wednesday, May 6th, a half day in-service day. Freshmen will be testing on the PLAN and sophomores will be taking a practice ACT. These assessments are an essential component of our academic program, as they provide information to our teachers on students’ skill acquisition and knowledge. All 9th and 10th grade students, regardless of when they normally start their day, need to be in attendance by 8:10 a.m. on this date. Please make arrangements to arrive at school in time for testing.

All juniors and seniors will be attending an Operation Prom presentation that same morning. 11th and 12th grade students should not arrive at school prior to 8:30 a.m. because of the testing going on for underclassmen. Juniors and seniors may only enter the building through the doors by the auditorium or by the student parking lot, and should report directly to the AUD. There will be no other access to the building on that morning for juniors and seniors.

Attend and Support Project Graduation
A Moline High School tradition continues with the 29th annual Project Graduation, on Friday, May 29th at the Two Rivers YMCA in Moline. This annual event will begin at 10:00 p.m., following the Class of 2015 Commencement ceremony, and is open to all graduating MHS seniors. The event will conclude at 4:00 a.m. Students receive a ticket to Project Graduation, in their graduation packets, to this fun-filled evening with their peers. Some of the planned events include laser tag, casino games, visit from a hypnotist, dance contest, food buffets, and prizes!
The goal of Project Graduation is to provide a drug-free, alcohol-free, lock-in event for graduating seniors. This event is coordinated by volunteer parents who raise funds to provide this unique evening for our students. Monetary donations and volunteers are still needed to support this worthwhile event. Please consider contributing to this cause by sending a check, payable to Project Graduation - MHS, and sent to Project Graduation - MHS, 3600 Avenue of the Cities, Moline, IL 61265. If you are able to volunteer your time at the event, please contact Angela or Rick Baker, Chairmen, at 792-2063 or arbaker@mchsi.com. Thank you for your support!

Math Students Celebrate Pi Day
The celebration of Pi Day is an annual event in Mrs. Lamphier’s AP Calculus class, although this year’s Pi Day was even more significant. Pi Day, celebrated around the world, on March 14 because 3/14 spells out the first three digits of π, or pi, 3.14. However, this year’s date of 3/14/15 included the first five digits of pi, 3.1415, the first occurrence in a century!
