 Linn-Mar Receives ASBO Certificate of Excellence

The Linn-Mar Community School District has received the Association of School Business Officials International Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2014.

This is the 11th consecutive year the District has received this honor, which represents a significant achievement and reflects a commitement to fiscal integrity and high-quality financial reporting.

Congratulations to Chief Financial JT Anderson and Business Manager Angie Morrison for their assistance in completing the financial reporting for the District.

 SODA Mock Accident Video

Recently our LMHS SODA committee members created a video with the support of the Linn-Mar staff and other community members to promote safe and healthy choices to students during the prom and graduation season. This was a mock accident and with the help of student actors, Brooklynn Ophoff and Lotukalafi Ahomana, the Homecoming King and Queen, the students were able to create a powerful message that emphasizes the consequences of drinking and driving.

Other students involved in creating this powerful video were Emma Miller, Tim Paulson, Phil Adams, Rylie Frese, Trevor Noble, Lane Halupnik and Ryan Schmidt.

This video was shown in the LMHS homerooms this morning. Students were allowed to leave if they did not feel comfortable watching the video and counselors were on hand to assist those who had a hard time or needed to talk about the content of the video.

It is the hope of our students that this video has a lasting impact on their peers so they will think twice before possibly making the wrong decision.

 Chad Buchholz named as new Linn Grove Principal

At its regular Board meeting at 7:00 p.m. Monday, May 18th, the Linn-Mar Board of Education is expected to take action on the recommendation of Chad Buchholz as the next principal at Linn Grove Elementary School, beginning July 1, 2015. Pending confirmation, Mr. Buchholz will be replacing Chad Schumacher who will become the full-time project manager for the High School Renovation Project and Administrator for high school classes at the LRC.

Buchholz is not only a Linn-Mar graduate, but has served in the Linn-Mar district for the past fourteen years. He started his career in education teaching 6th grade at both Excelsior and Oak Ridge before serving as a School Administration Manager (SAM) at Bowman Woods. For the past eight years, Buchholz has been Associate Principal and Athletic Director at Excelsior Middle School.

“I have great excitement and expectation as I begin my tenure working with the families and staff at Linn Grove,” said Buchholz.

“Chad has done a great job serving as a substitute principal at Linn Grove these past few months,” stated Katie Mulholland, Superintendent. “We are extremely pleased to have such a talented professional grow with our community as he continues to inspire learning, unlock potential and empower achievement in the students he works with at Linn-Mar.”

Buchholz has a B.S. in Elementary and Middle Level Education from University of Northern Iowa and a M.S.E. in Education Administration from Drake University.
