 Linn-Mar to Partner with Iowa BIG for 2017-18 School Year

Linn-Mar is very excited to announce a partnership with Iowa BIG in addition to the creation of the Innovation Center, an extension of Iowa BIG, which is scheduled to open for the 2017-18 school year. The announcement came Wednesday, November 30th during the Iowa BIG open house and XQ Super School Award Winner celebration.

Currently, there are 125 students enrolled in the Iowa BIG program, 15 of which are Linn-Mar students. With the addition of a second site, Iowa BIG will increase its enrollment allowing them to reach a broader range of students in the Cedar Rapids and Marion communities.

The location of the Innovation Center is pending as the administration works with local businesses to determine the best spot for the program. The second site is an exciting opportunity for students and is made possible, in part, due to the million dollar grant awarded to Iowa BIG by XQ The Super School Project, which promotes a "different style of learning."

The program's curriculum is initiative-based and allows students to engage in authentic community projects, problems, and opportunities for a deeper connection to people and resources. Iowa BIG "produces students who become makers, designers, storytellers, and social entrepreneurs by creating curriculum with business, nonprofit, and government agencies." Students are able to earn college-level credits through the program as well.

We are Linn-Mar!

 Linn-Mar Cheer Gives Back to the Community

Tuesday, November 29th is Giving Tuesday, a movement to create an international day of giving at the beginning of the holiday season.

For many, the giving spirit extends well beyond Giving Tuesday. Over Thanksgiving break, the 30 cheerleaders of Linn-Mar Basketball Cheer made 25 blankets and 15 sock monkeys to donate to pediatric patients at the UIHC Children's Hospital. The team anticipates presenting the blankets and sock monkeys to the UIHC volunteers by the end of the week so they can be distributed before the holidays.

According to Athletic Director Dave Brown, altruism is one of the Athletic Department's five culture pieces. "Linn-Mar Basketball Cheer has shown a great example of this by doing what they can to give back to the community," he said.

Linn-Mar Varsity Cheer will also give back to the community by hosting a free gift-wrapping event during the basketball double-header on December 9th. Any spectator can bring their unwrapped holiday presents to have wrapped by the cheerleaders by the end of the game. Freewill donations will be accepted and 100 percent of the donations will be given to the local Gems of Hope Charity group who provides gifts to local cancer patients.

Thank you for showing the importance of giving back L-M Cheer!
