 Linn-Mar Growl Prowl and Weather
 

The Linn-Mar Growl Prowl is set for Saturday, April 25th, starting at 9AM. Unfortunately, the race weather forecast shows possible heavy rain. The race will go on with rain! However, if there is a forecast of lightning, the race would be cancelled in order to keep everyone safe.

Race officials will make the determination by 8:30am. Notifications will be made on the Growl Prowl website (www.growlprowl.com), Growl Prowl Facebook Page, Linn-Mar Community Schools Facebook page, and on the “red banner” of the Linn-Mar CSD website (www.linnnmar.k12.ia.us).

Hopefully the race will go on! But if lightning forces the cancellation, a BIG thank you to all who registered and supported the Growl Prowl’s mission to raise funds from the community in order to provide the basic needs for living and for learning that a growing number of Linn-Mar children lack.

REMINDER: Race packets can be picked up at Excelsior Middle School between 4-8pm Friday, 4/24 or Saturday, 4/25, in the morning at the Aquatic Center next to Linn-Mar Stadium beginning at 7:30am.

 Linn-Mar's Farber awarded Building Bridges Outstanding Educator
 

Recently Linn-Mar’s Amanda Farber was awarded Building Bridges Outstanding Educator for use of Assistive Technology in the classroom. A 2nd grade teacher at Linn Grove Elementary, Farber was nominated by Patty Soldner of Grant Wood Area Education Agency (GWAEA). The following was her nomination letter:

I would like to nominate Amanda Farber in recognition of her use of AT to meet the needs of a special education student in her classroom. Amanda is a second grade general education teacher at Linn-Grove Elementary school in the Linn-Mar school district. Amanda has a strong interest in the use of technology in her classroom. She has embraced learning how she can use technology to facilitate the diverse learning needs of her classroom. She completed the Century 21 Learning course through GWAEA and embedded much of what she learned in this course into her instructional techniques in the classroom. In particular, she has recognized the need for one of her students with significant learning needs in reading to have access to accessible instructional materials. Amanda sought the help of the AT consultant and the literacy consultant at her school to set up a Bookshare account for this student. This allows him to obtain reading materials in a digital format, including some of his text books. This student is then able to listen and read along using text to speech and highlighted text on the classroom ipad. Amanda went further in setting up her whole class with having the availability of digital text reading on the classroom ipad using Tumbleb... more


 Many of Linn-Mar's FBLA students recognized
 

by Madhuri Belkale, LMHS junior and Reporter of Linn-Mar's FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) Chapter

At the FBLA State Leadership Conference, on March 12-14, the theme was "Step up to the Challenge." Linn-Mar FBLA stepped up to the challenge at their State Conference!

LMHS had many students receive high honors on their competitive state events. Anyone who received 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in a National Event qualified for the National Leadership Conference in Chicago this summer. With only 24 students attending, Linn-Mar also placed 4th at State, which is impressive for the number of students we took! We also had two students elected to State Officer Positions: Junior Sruthi Palaniappan as State President and Sophomore Jonathan Wisner as State Treasurer!

Below are all of the placements Linn-Mar FBLA students received:

National Events

  • Accounting II, Cole Kirchner 2nd
  • Accounting II, Greg Spies 4th
  • Business Communications, Kinnari Karia 1st
