Community Relations

Community Involvement

The Community Relations office offers parents, grandparents and community members opportunities to be involved with our schools.

More than 1,740 people have already taken action to become active volunteers and support our students and staff. Volunteers have recorded more than 26,400 hours of time during the 16-17 school year. Linn-Mar volunteers assist in the classroom, read with students, fundraise, prepare learning materials and support the schools and staff with their time. The impact of their time is seen in the individual attention for our students, the special events that they coordinate and staff, and building a school climate where parents and our staff are partners.
