Student safety is the number one priority!
Moline High School Awarded Grant
Moline High School is pleased to announce that MHS was selected to receive federal 21st Century Community Learning Center grant funding for the 2014 - 2015 school year. In a highly competitive selection process, the state chose 87 programs out of the 142 proposals they received. The goal of Moline High School's grant is to continue to close the achievement gap for our at-risk populations. Programs offered will address the acquisition of academic skills and provide students with opportunities to earn credits needed for a high school diploma. The $135,000 award will allow MHS to offer night school courses, Saturday school, after school tutoring, extended semester credit recovery, family activities, and both transitional and remedial summer school courses.
Second Semester Period 1 Opportunities for Students
Students, who are not enrolled in a period 1 class, have several opportunities during period one to improve their skills and understanding of the curriculum. Period 1 is available for students to make up tests, get extra help, and complete assignments. There are several intervention rooms available for students to utilize from 8:10 – 9:00 a.m. Second semester, the staffed Intervention rooms include English (rooms B215 & J231), Math (rooms B303 & J308) and Science (room J137.) Students may show up any morning during period 1 and receive a pass to an intervention room. Students must bring their student ID.
Students Named as Illinois State Scholars
The Illinois Student Assistance Commission named 48 MHS seniors as 2015 Illinois State Scholars. The students were honored at a ceremony on December 16th. The State Scholar program recognizes Illinois high school students for outstanding academic achievement. Congratulations to all our Illinois State Scholars!
New Security System in Place
As part of the Moline High School safety plan, all exterior doors are locked at 9:00 a.m. This includes the main entrance doors at the front of the building. A new security system is now in place that requires visitors to push a button to signal their intent to enter. Once visitors have been verbally acknowledged by a security person inside the building, the door will release to allow entrance. All visitors must sign in with the front door attendant upon arrival. This security system is the same as the ones in place at other buildings in the district.
New Club formed at MHS
Moline High School student athletes have created an after school club entitled “Sports Unlimited”. This club pairs students with special needs with student athletes to develop friendships and increase student involvement through non-competitive games and activities. The club meets approximately once per month after school. The club sponsors are Sue Dell, Kristin Sanders, Jeff McCracken, and Lisa Martinez.
