 Linn-Mar COMPASS Garden Coming to Fruition Literally
 

The garden, which was started by the Botany class in the spring, is tended to by Teacher Bernie Kraft and student volunteers during the summer. Produce from the COMPASS garden is shared with COMPASS students, families and local food banks. This year, a composting component was added to the garden project. Students learned about proper composting and collected material that would normally be thrown away to compost. This is the third year COMPASS has had a vegetable garden. Some of the produce growing in the garden include tomatoes, carrots, snap peas, beets and watermelon (a favorite among the students). Inspiring Learning at Linn-Mar!


 Extended School Year Program Wraps Up a Successful Year
 

Participants and student volunteer mentors gathered for a group photo to celebrate the end of this year's Extended School Year (ESY) program. ESY is held four days a week for five weeks during the summer months to provide additional educational guidance for students with special needs. Middle and high school students served as classroom aides to the instructors. Over the five week period, the volunteers became inspiring, positive role models for the younger students. Staff members were in awe of the dedication shown by the student volunteers. Many of them gave up more than 50 hours of their summer vacation to help make this year's ESY a complete success.

We ARE Linn-Mar!


 Readers on a Roll
 

Linn Grove Elementary students participated in the Readers on a Roll (ROAR) summer reading program on Thursday, July 14th at the school.Thus far, more than 200 Linn Grove students have participated in the program during the first three sessions; which started July 7th. At the event, students rotated among three reading stations. At one station, Marion Mayor Nicolas AbouAssaly read to the students and answered questions related to his responsibilities as Mayor. Students were also read to by Reading Support Teacher Mary Ellen Oglesby and were able to read on their own in the media center. The ROAR program is open to 2015-16 Linn Grove students from kindergarten through 5th grade. For more information visit the ROAR web page.


 Robotics Summer Camp
 

Linn-Mar 4th through 9th graders are discovering how entering a series of commands into a computer program can tell a robotic vehicle what to do. It's part of the Linn-Mar Robotics Summer Camp. Robotics instructors and High School Robotics students are leading three camps across the district. The camps are full for this summer. Watch the LM Robotics website for registration information for next year's Linn-Mar Robotics Summer Camp.
