 Early Childhood/Preschool Update:

Various preschool scenarios for the 2016-17 school year have been explored due to space challenges in the elementary schools. To alleviate space issues at Echo Hill, both the Little Lions Preschool Program and the Early Childhood Blended Program (ECBP) will be moved to different buildings. Building locations for our preschool programs for 2016-17 will be at Linn Grove and Novak.

 IHSSA State Speech Contest Results

Linn-Mar High School students were empowered by their achievements at State Speech Contest held at Kennedy High School on Saturday, February 6, 2016.

LMHS Speech had nine events which had advanced to State. Of those, seven events received a Division I rating. In addition, four of those seven received the high honor of being given a Division I by all three judges in the room. Those four groups were:

  • The one act play - The Other Room
  • Group Mime - A Flight to be Remembered...Or Forgotten
  • The group Improvisation team
  • One of the radio teams - WDNR

The short film entry, Ghost Girl, the musical theatre entry, Take Me or Leave Me, and the freshmen solo mime entry, Blast From the Past, all received two Division I and one Division II score - which results in an overall Division I rating.

Any of these groups could also be eligible for an All-State nomination.

The other radio and our Reader's Theatre each received a Division II rating, which is also impressive!

Congratulations to our hard-working Speech students! Mrs. Fry would also like to thank all involved for all their support of this team of talented students.
