 Linn-Mar Drama presents Disney's Peter Pan Jr.

In anticipation of the upcoming Children’s Theatre and Linn-Mar Drama Department’s production of Disney’s Peter Pan Jr., ninety-three third graders from Indian Creek Elementary visited the high school and learned about the workings of live theatre.

Through "Operation Backstage" the eager young students learned about costumes and make-up, set construction, dance, and took a tour of the main auditorium. Sixteen of our district's high school students helped them along this entertaining journey.

Children’s Theatre of Cedar Rapids and Playtime Poppy organize this event every year to encourage the future generations to become involved in theatre.

Show dates for Disney's Peter Pan Jr. are March 5th and 6th at 4:30 and 7pm, and March 7th at 2 and 4:30pm in the Linn-Mar High School Auditorium. Tickets are just $3 at the door.

 Novak's Stuffed Animal Drive

Congratulations to our Novak families for their successful Stuffed Animal Drive.

Students helped organize this drive - and then donated the cute and cuddly stuffies they collected to the Marion Police Department. Police officers carry the stuffed animals in their squad cars and share them with kids who need comfort when responding to calls.

Good work Novak!

 LMHS students' ceramic work selected for national show

Three of our artistic Linn-Mar students have had their ceramic work selected for the National K12 Ceramics show.

This show is in conjunction with the National Ceramics Conference held in Providence, Rhode Island, this year. Our students' work will be on display from March 25th through the 27th where ceramic artists, teachers, professors and others can view and enjoy!

This is the second year Linn-Mar students have entered their work. This year a total of 1409 works of art were submitted for judging - and only 150 pieces were selected from all grade K-12!

The selected student's work (shown below) are from:
Madi Morris 11th grade- short vessel in green
Jerra Whapoe 12th grade- Large coil pot with trees
Jessica Smart 12th grade- coil pot with graffiti

 Halupnik to leave Linn-Mar at end of school year

Linn-Mar CSD Deputy Superintendent and Chief Academic Officer, Dr. Dirk Halupnik, has been named to lead Southeast Polk CSD as superintendent of schools starting July 1, 2015.

“He’s going to be missed at Linn-Mar,” said Linn-Mar’s superintendent, Dr. Katie Mulholland. “Dirk is an intelligent, collaborative and proactive leader. His hard work and dedicated service while at Linn-Mar has helped ensure learning for all students that prepares them for success in life. I have no doubt Dirk will be an effective leader at Southeast Polk with his outstanding qualifications.”

Dr. Halupnik has been with Linn-Mar since 2002, serving first as Associate Principal at LMHS and then as Executive Director of Instructional Services before taking on his current titles with the district. He earned both his master’s degree in educational leadership and doctoral degree from University of Northern Iowa. Halupnik’s bachelor’s degree is in biology along with a coaching minor, also from UNI.

“It’s exciting,” said Halupnik. “I’ve loved my time at Linn-Mar and both my sons went to school here. My wife and I feel lucky to have raised them in this community. But I’m enthusiastic about moving forward and the positive impact I can have on students by taking on this new leadership position at Southeast Polk.”
