 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 lead the Council in the Pledge of Allegiance and then each got to read their essay about why the city of Marion is such a great place to live.

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

 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.

During the At-Risk/Dropout Prevention Modified Supplemental Amount Application report it was shared that the 2016-17 application will request the maximum amount of the grant, add funding to support a summer reading program for students identified in need of additional support based on their FAST assessment results, and that there was a change in the submission date for the application from December 15th to February 5th. 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 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.
