 Indian Creek Elementary Named One of the Best in the Nation
 

Indian Creek Elementary School gathered for a surprise announcement at an assembly this afternoon. Everyone was asked to wear blue today for the occasion.

At the assembly, a special announcement was delivered to the school administrators and then announced by Associate Superintendent Shannon Bisgard, Indian Creek Principal Marilee McConnell, former Indian Creek Principal Tina March and Director of Elementary Teaching and Learning Kelly Kretschmar.

The announcement was from U.S. Secretary of Education, John B. King, Jr., and announced that today, Indian Creek Elementary has been named a 2016 National Blue Ribbon School. Indian Creek is one among 279 public and 50 private schools to receive this honor. In addition, Indian Creek Elementary is among only five Iowa schools to win this year's award.

Schools are nominated for the award by the state department of education, and then complete a comprehensive application about school practices. Schools may apply for status as Exemplary High Performing -- among the top schools in a state -- or Exemplary Achievement Gap Closing -- schools making the fastest progress in their state in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups.

The school will be represented at a two-day awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. to celebrate their hard-won achievements.

Congratulations to all students, teachers and staff of Indian Creek Elementary for your monumental achievement!!!


 L-M Girls Swim Team Show Their True Color
 

The LMHS girls swim team participated in a meet hosted by the Washington Warriors Tuesday, September 27.

It was senior night for the Warriors, which made the event very special for their entire team. One of the team's seniors, Glenna Houtz, is currently battling leukemia.

In an amazing and beautiful display of sportsmanship, every L-M swimmer and coach came on deck sporting an orange leukemia awareness ribbon. Then, after all the Washington Warrior seniors were introduced, the seniors from the Lions walked around the pool deck and presented Glenna with a bouquet of orange flowers.

Glenna, her parents, and sister were very touched by such a display of kindness.

A representative from Washington High School said, "thank you to your swimmers for being such caring individuals, and thank you to you and your coaches for fostering an attitude of sportsmanship among your athletes."

The LMHS girls swim team is an inspiration to us all, this is truly Linn-Mar Lions at their finest.
