Press release submitted by Moline School District No. 40


You are cordially invited to attend the first Moline High School "Community Connections" presentation
Tuesday, February 26th at 6:30 p.m. in the MHS Auditorium. High schools have undergone significant changes in recent years and it is sometimes difficult to navigate the different initiatives and to understand the implications for your local school. The Moline High School administration will highlight some of the significant changes that have occurred at MHS over the past five years. This 45 minute presentation will provide parents, community partners, and stakeholders with information on the recent evolution of education and how the high school has responded to these challenges and opportunities.
We hope to see you there!
