Buchholz and Ludwig Named Principals of 5th-6th Grade Schools

Linn-Mar is proud to name Chad Buchholz and Dan Ludwig as the principals of the new 5th-6th grade intermediate buildings.

Principal Buchholz will oversee the school that will be located next to Echo Hill Elementary. Principal Ludwig will oversee the school on 35th Avenue (near 44th Street).

Both are excited about the new schools and the new opportunities they bring for students and staff. “I look forward to blending traditional ideas with innovative and new practices to ensure the best learning experiences,” Buchholz said.

He also went on to say that he will rely on his experiences at the middle and elementary school levels in helping to design this new conceptual experience at Linn-Mar.

“I’m very confident the great staff at Linn Grove will continue to build positive relationships and provide the quality experiences to the students and families at Linn Grove,” he said, “I’m very thankful for the next two years I will spend with the amazing students, families, and staff at Linn Grove.”

Principal Ludwig said he is ready for the challenge the next two years will bring as the district works to define, design and construct the new 5th-6th grade buildings. “As a lifelong learner, this will allow me to continue to grow as an educator,” he said.

“I have truly enjoyed the 11 years I spent at Echo Hill and I will miss the relationships that have developed over that time with the students, staff, and families of our amazing school,” Principal Ludwig said.
