 The Linn-Mar Invention Convention Finalists

Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs are alive and well at Linn-Mar as evidenced by another successful district-wide Invention Convention held in the LRC Gym.

This was the second step for fourth graders from across the district. Each elementary school held their own Invention Convention earlier in the school year. The top prize winners from those events advanced to the district-wide event.

All the students have the opportunity to compete at Invent Iowa, a statewide event held April 27th in Des Moines. The district supplies the entry fee for the top winners of the district competition. Usually it's the top ten winners. This year there was a tie, so eleven students and their projects were honored including:

Magnetic Cargo Containers, The Temp Taker, Test Bank, Hook Hanger, Glove Keeper, I Spy Unlucky Leprechaun, Pull-O-Hanger, The Transformable Tray, You've Got Mail Detector, Prostheticanator, and the Tidy Pig Pen.

Congratulations to all the participants!!

 Oak Ridge Middle School Honored

Oak Ridge Middle School was one of five Iowa schools honored by the Iowa Department of Education with a Breaking Barriers to Teaching and Learning Award.

The award was presented to Oak Ridge Principal Erica Rausch in a ceremony held by the State Board of Education in Des Moines. The accolade recognizes the school's efforts to raise achievement among groups of students who traditionally face challenges in the classroom.

Oak Ridge was recognized for having the highest proficiency rates in math and reading among specific subgroups of students. Those subgroups include those whose first language is not English and those from low-income backgrounds. The last three years of state assessment results were examined to confirm a positive trend for each school.

The school was chosen for their work with Hispanic students who are 98 percent proficient in reading and math. The statewide average is 66 percent.

Congratulations to Oak Ridge Middle School on this tremendous achievement!
