 Linn-Mar Orchestras take top spots at Invitational

Our Linn-Mar High School & Middle School Orchestras take the top spots at the 2015 Jefferson Orchestra Invitational!

Congratulations to all of our Orchestras who received superior ratings at the annual Jefferson Orchestra Invitational on Saturday, April 25th. It was a great day for the orchestra program with the High School Symphony Orchestra placing 1st within their division receiving superior ratings from all the judges. This marks the eighth year in a row that this ensemble has placed 1st within the 4-A division. The Concert Orchestra and Philharmonic Orchestra placed second and third respectively overall within the same division beating out other top ensembles from around the metro area. Our high school orchestras are under the direction of Mr. Joshua Reznicow and Mr. Jonathan Welch.

Like our high school program, our middle school programs also had a great day at the Invitational with our Middle School Chamber Orchestra competing within the middle school division receiving superior ratings from the judges and placing 1st overall. This marks the twelfth year in a row that our middle school orchestras have placed 1st within their division. Our middle school ensembles are co-directed by Mrs. Kristine Schamberger and Mrs. Katie Vail.

This event marked the twelfth year that our Orchestras have gone out and participated in a contest of this kind. There were a total of seventeen Orchestras performing throughout the day from around the state of Iowa. Each group performed for three judges and one adjudicator, who gave them a twenty-minute clinic following their performan... more

 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!
