Freshmen Welcomed to MHS
The Class of 2019 was welcomed to MHS with a rousing Freshman First Day on the morning of August 13th. Freshmen were split into small groups to work with their assigned Link Crew leaders. Among the various activities of the day, students were able to find and open their locker, follow their schedule to find their classrooms, participate in a Selfie Scavenger hunt and become comfortable as they transition to high school.

LEAD Moline Provides Opportunities
This year, the freshman class is participating in a 1:1 technology initiative called LEAD Moline (Limitless Engagement, Amazing Discoveries.) This approach utilizes personalized learning and technology to accelerate learning opportunities for students. LEAD focuses on three core areas: personalized learning, increased 21st century skills, and greater access to educational opportunities. Ninth grade students received a Chromebook that they are expected to use in class and can take home with them to assist with their studies. In a personalized learning environment, students are assessed to determine their current level and then are provided with lessons and activities that address their unique needs while giving them the skills they require. Teachers of freshmen have participated in professional development sessions and will continue to receive specific training to incorporate these core areas into their classrooms.
