Volunteer and Community Involvement:

The Community Relations office offers parents, grandparents, and community members opportunities to be involved with our schools. Linn-Mar volunteers assist in the classroom, read with students, lead fundraisers, 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.

Learn more about our volunteer program here.

Parent Learning & Communication Opportunities: 

Parents are encouraged to learn more about the district by attending Lion Learning hosted by Superintendent Shannon Bisgard. Lion Learning opportunities will be hosted in the LRC boardroom (2999 N 10th St, Marion) at noon and 5:30 PM  during the school year.

Information on upcoming sessions is posted on the Linn-Mar website homepage approximately two weeks in advance of the scheduled date.

Parent University:

Parent University is an opportunity to learn about current parenting or school issues. Parent University is announced on the district website and through school newsletters. These learning events begin at 6:30 PM in the boardroom of the Learning Resource Center (2999 N 10th Street, Marion) for our school community and run about an hour in length.
