Important Message Regarding Homecoming Week

Linn-Mar High School Volleyball Homecoming Parade Float

Linn-Mar Community and LMHS Parents,

Many people are involved in the planning and preparation for the 2017 Linn-Mar High School Homecoming celebration the week of October 2-7. Our Homecoming honors all of the students currently in the district as well as our LMHS alumni. The goal for the specific Homecoming events is to promote a spirit of unity within the school district and to provide opportunities for our students, the school community, and alumni to be involved in the celebration. The LM CSD parade will be held on Thursday, October 5, beginning at 5: 15 p.m. The parade will feature students representing all Linn-Mar CSD schools, including many high school clubs, organizations, teams, and fine arts groups. Friday, October 6, events include 1oth grade and varsity football games and performances by cheer squads, JV and Varsity Poms, and The Marching Lions.

The purpose of this letter is to communicate times and dates for these events and to continue to ask for the support of our parents and community to ensure for a safe and appropriate week. We ask for your cooperation as parents and community members in preventing reckless and unlawful behavior. It must be clearly stated that it is unacceptable for anyone to engage in reckless or unlawful behavior, to damage private or public property, or to harass any individual at any time, including during Homecoming week.

The only official Homecoming events for the week are the parade/coronation/powderpuff game on Thursday night, the pep rally and games on Friday night, and the dance on Saturday night. As always, the focus in school during the week will continue to be on current academic coursework.  Our hope is that the Homecoming events are well attended and a

highlight for everyone involved. In the last few years, the efforts of our parents, our school community, many business owners, and law enforcement have helped to ensure a safe and appropriate week.

We invite the Linn-Mar community to join our seven elementary schools, two middle schools, LMHS (including the Success and COMPASS Centers) in celebrating Homecoming in an appropriate manner and with Linn-Mar spirit. We thank you for your support in making LM Homecoming 2017 an appropriate and spirited week.  Go Lions!

Thank you,

Principal Jeff Gustason
