MHS Conferences held on October 27th and 28th

Moline High School will hold parent/teacher conferences at the end of the first quarter on October 27th and 28th. Conferences should be seen as an opportunity for students, parents/guardians, and teachers to work together to improve the student’s educational outcomes. We strongly encourage your student to attend the conference with you, as this provides students an opportunity to share in the responsibility for their education.  In order to facilitate your schedule, you are encouraged to reserve a ten-minute conference slot in advance with the teachers of your choice. You may also sign-up on the sheet next to the teacher’s door to reserve a time slot the day of conferences. This will allow you to schedule appointments and reduce the amount of wait time.  Due to time constraints, we must limit conferences to ten minutes. If you need to meet with a teacher for a longer amount of time, please contact the teacher and set up an alternative day and time for a conference. Teacher contact information is listed in the staff directory on the right side of this webpage.

The conference dates and times are:

Thursday, October 27th from 3:30 – 7:00 p.m.

Friday, October 28th from 8:30 a.m. - Noon

Other opportunities on Thursday evening will include Kirk Marske from Career Cruising, ISAC representatives, and Boys & Girls Club staff members. Kirk will have a kiosk set up in the main hallway.  He will have information for students and parents about career exploration and Career Cruising Quad Cities’ scholarship and financial aid resources.  Representatives from the Illinois Student Assistance Commission will be at a table near the main office to answer questions about Financial Aid and filling out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Boys and Girls Club representatives will be here to share opportunities and applications for their program. Remember, we encourage both student and parent(s) to be in attendance. We look forward to seeing you on October 27th and October 28th

Moline High School students receive recognition in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program.
Congratulations to Karthik Prakash--Commended Student, Connor Dessert--Semifinalist, Nathan Fields--Commended Student, Lucas Petre--Commended Student, Ashley Barker--Commended Student, and Pranjal Kadwe--Commended Student! 
Commended Students in the National Merit Scholarship Program are being recognized for the exceptional academic promise demonstrated by their outstanding performance on the PSAT/National Merit Qualifying Test last October.  Although they will not continue in the 2017 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2017 competition.  
Semifinalists In the National Merit Scholarship Program are the highest-scoring entrants in each state and represent less than 1 percent of each state's high school seniors.  They are the only participants to qualify to continue in the competition for National Merit Scholarships to be awarded in the spring of 2017.  


School Safety

Moline High School is pleased to announce that for the 2016-2017 school year we will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System to build on campus safety for students and faculty. Part of keeping students safe is knowing who is in our building at all times. The Raptor System will better allow us to track visitors, contractors, and volunteers in our school.


Upon entering Moline High School, all visitors will be asked to present a valid state-issued ID, which will be scanned into the system. The Raptor system will check the national database to identify dangerous or wanted individuals and sex offenders. It is important to note the Raptor system only scans the visitor’s name, date of birth and photo for comparison with the national data base. Student safety is our highest priority and the Raptor Visitor Management System provides a consistent way to deter people who may present a danger to our students. Therefore, all visitors to the school must be scanned into the system and obtain a visitor badge. Thank you in advance for your understanding and support of enhancing school safety protocols at MHS.
