 LMHS Band students do well at the CRMB Young Artist Competition

Congratulations to Evan Brown (french horn), winner of the Cedar Rapids Municipal Band Young Artist Competition, and also to runners up Anna Ausman (oboe) and Claire Liske (clarinet). Out of an extremely competitive field of Cedar Rapids area metro high school musicians, all three represented themselves and our community with class and distinction!

Since 2011, the CRMB has sponsored the Young Artist Competition each year to encourage the development of outstanding high school musicians. The winner of the competition will be the featured guest soloist during one week of the summer season and given a financial award of $250 in support of future music endeavors. Runners-up may also be named and have an opportunity to perform with the band.

 Linn-Mar's first hires under Teacher Leader Plan announced

The Teacher Leadership Interview Team is pleased to announce the selection of Debra Barry and Erin Watts as the Teacher Leader Plan Coordinators for the 2014-15 school year. Debra currently teaches 8th grade social studies at Excelsior Middle School. A Linn-Mar teacher for 18+ years, she has also taught at Bowman Woods and Linn Grove. Erin, Excelsior Middle School Spanish teacher, is in her 10th year of teaching at Linn-Mar. Both Erin and Debra helped put together the application for the Department of Education’s Teacher Leadership Compensation Grant in collaboration with the Teacher Leadership (TL) Plan Committee. The Teacher Leadership Plan Committee met in December and January to give input on the plan and feedback on its development.

The Interview Team was impressed with the quality of the candidates and each person’s vision for Linn-Mar teacher leadership opportunities. Currently, the Interview Team is interviewing applicants for the remaining 19 released time positions that were created in Linn-Mar’s Plan. In addition, postings for 96 additional stipend positions have been released under the Teacher Leadership Plan.

Department of Education (DE) regulations for the grant required that school districts use a rigorous process for teachers applying for all the positions. The actual grant application that Linn-Mar submitted outlined the application process to be used per the DE regulations.

We are excited for this new, totally State funded opportunity to compensate Linn-Mar teacher leaders to actualize our mission: Inspire Learning, Unlock Potential. ... more

 SUCCESS Center spices things up!

Recently the Linn-Mar SUCCESS Center spiced things up with their Annual Chili Cook-Off! Students from both the high school and the SUCCESS center formed teams and prepared a variety of chili recipes for the judging and tasting event. Members of the Cedar Rapids Rugby Team acted as judges, but found it difficult to pick a winner because everybody scored high with their tasty recipes!

Chili teams and recipes from the high school teams included: Chili Hot Hot Peppers' Taco Soup, Hot Chili Pot Boilmakers' Tailgate Chili made with venison, the Baconators' Bacon Chili with hot dogs, Fire Masters' spicy Kickin' Hot Spring Chili, Stir It Up's white Tasty Touchdown Chili, and Chili Madness' Pig Skin Chili made with pork.

Chili recipes from the SUCCESS Center included: Smoked Cheesy Chicken Chili and Sweet Dreamy Chili, which was a dessert chili.

Following the judging, the students served up their delicious creations for guests to enjoy. All of the students were rewarded with wonderful prizes from community sponsors for participating in this year's Chili Cook-Off!
