Optimists continue to support Jefferson with “Shoes and Coats that Fit”  

Jefferson Early Childhood Center continues to collaborate with the Moline Breakfast Optimist Club.  Optimist members will be presenting Jefferson students with a new pair of sneakers and/or a new coat complete with a hat and pair of mittens on Wednesday, December 5, at 10:00 am at the center located at 3010-26th Avenue.  

This is an annual event for the Optimist Club, which uses fundraising and member donations to fund the “Shoes and Coats that Fit” program.  The club has provided approximately 2,000 pairs of shoes and over 250 coats to students at Jefferson since the program began 19 years ago.

5Essentials Survey for Parents


The Illinois 5Essentials Survey is now open for you to provide input on the school that your child attends. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about the school your child attends.  Our state also asks students in grades 4-12 to complete the survey as well and the school will provide time for students to take the survey during the day beginning in December.

Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvements. Your identity and survey responses will be kept confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. This confidentiality is also true for students.  The survey is online and the state does not share any individual responses with schools.

The survey is available now through January 18th.  Thank you for participation and for supporting the improvement of your child’s school. Access the parent survey.


Moline High School Kicks Off Annual Share Joys Campaign

The Moline High School Share Joys campaign will take place December 3 – 7.  This year’s events will kick off with a Donut Eating Contest, sponsored by Donut Delight, on Wednesday, November 28,  at 7:00 a.m. in the East Gym at Moline High School.  Shopping for the students will take place on December 9 at JC Penney, Moline.    

The Moline High School Share Joys program has raised over $1,207,732 since 1949 for children in need from Moline-Coal Valley Schools.  Last year, Moline High School students and staff, together with the community, raised over $46,180.00 to clothe more than 275 children who needed assistance.

Contributions of any amount are currently being accepted for the 2018 Share Joys campaign. Every dollar that is contributed will go directly toward helping make this holiday season happier for Moline School District children. Checks can be made payable  to Moline High School Share Joys, and can be sent to Allison Ryser, Moline High School, 3600 Avenue of the Cities, Moline, IL 61265. For further information, contact Allison Ryser, at 309-743-8827.
