Press release submitted by Rock Island-Milan School District


The Rock Island-Milan School District will be hosting "Coffee and Conversations" again this year, an event that offers an open forum for parents and community members to talk with the school district in an informal setting.

"We will be discussing many topics and want to encourage everyone to participate in the process, whether it's taking the time during the busy holiday season to attend a Coffee and Conversations event, or going to the web site to submit a comment or question," said Dr. Oberhaus. "Every bit will help us guide our school district in a beneficial and efficient manner."

Coffee and Conversations will be held on Saturday, Dec. 8, 8 a.m. at Rock Island Hy-Vee, and then at 10:00 a.m. at Milan Hy-Vee.

In addition to the Coffee and Conversations forums, a web form is available on the front page of www.rockislandschools.org for people to submit comments (name and email not required) as well.
