 Novak Mirror Ball Typing Traveling Trophy
 

Courtney C, from Mrs. Frette’s room at Novak Elementary, was a recent fifth grade winner of the coveted Novak Mirror Ball Typing Traveling Trophy.

Using NitroType.com, students are given a sentence to type. Their typing skills are then judged on speed and accuracy. The students are also encouraged to use proper form when typing.

For those who may have forgotten, here’s a refresher: Make sure to have the correct body posture. Sit erect. Keep your feet flat on the floor and keep your wrists elevated above the keyboard.

Those are real keys to success! Congrats Courtney!


 Indian Creek Students Share Why Marion is a Great Place to Live!
 

Four Indian Creek fourth grade students attended the Marion City Council meeting on Thursday, February 4th. They led the Council in the Pledge of Allegiance and then each student had the opportunity to read their essay about why the City of Marion is a great place to live.

The students who participated were Ella Frale, Howie Ighedo, Kylie Wassmer, and Rachel Dunnwald.


 Highlights from February 8th Board Meeting
 

Below are some of the highlights from the February 8th Linn-Mar Board of Education meeting.
Please note these are just some of the highlights and do not represent the official minutes.

During the work session the Board participated in a brief discussion on completing a survey to determine where they are as a Board and to determine areas of focus, strengths, and improvements.

As a result of applying for the maximum amount of the grant and incorporating potential funding into the grant application for the summer reading program, the monies spent to fund these programs out of the general fund will be freed up for other uses.

Five requests for proposals were sent out regarding the before/after school childcare programs housed at Bowman Woods Elementary, Indian Creek Elementary, and Westfield Elementary for the 2016-17 school year. Four proposals were received, reviewed, and rated by members of the Administration, Building Principals, and Buildings School Administrative Managers (SAMs). A recommendation will be made to the Board during the February 22nd regular session.

 Early Childhood/Preschool Update
 

Various preschool scenarios for the 2016-17 school year have been explored due to space challenges in the elementary buildings. To alleviate space issues at Echo Hill Elementary, 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 Elementary and Novak Elementary.
