 LMHS Course Registration Process

Our students have started the process of selecting courses for the 2015-2016 school year at Linn-Mar High School. Here's how it works...

Linn-Mar's 8th grade students have received their course registration materials at Oak Ridge or Excelsior Middle Schools. The 9/10 counselors have visited both middle schools, distributed the registration material and have talked to the 8th grade students about the registration process. Parents should have already received registration material through their student.

At LMHS, all initial course selection will be online using PowerSchool. Students will receive course registration instructions during a Homeroom session on January 22, 2015. Online registration will take place from Thursday, January 22, through Friday, February 6, at 3:45 p.m.

Following course registration, the Master Schedule of courses is developed. This schedule is primarily based upon student course requests. Every effort is made to fulfill student course requests. Student schedules will be given out the first week in May. Schedule changes can be made during the month of May with guidance counselors.

 Linn-Mar Athletic Hall of Fame Inductees & Ceremony Announced

Linn-Mar Community Schools is proud to induct eight new members into our Linn-Mar Athletic Hall of Fame this year. The ceremony will be held between the Linn-Mar Boys Sophomore and Varsity Basketball home games on January 30, 2015.

The eight inductees are:

John M. Anderson:
John was a 1984 Graduate of Linn-Mar High School. He was a three year varsity letter winner in basketball. He was the starting center for the 1983 State Championship team. John received numerous awards and All-State recognition during his high school career and was heavily recruited by numerous Division I Schools. He chose to attend Ohio State University on a basketball scholarship. He was named the Buckeyes best defensive player his junior year, and as a senior he was named co-captain. John was a quiet, unassuming person who was known as a “blue collar worker” by everyone. He worked hard and was tremendously loyal to his teammates, friends and family.
Following his four years at Ohio State, John traveled overseas to play basketball in a number of countries that included Italy, Israel, Hong Kong and Australia. He also played for a U.S. Team called High Five America based in San Diego, CA. This team would sponsor youth camps and play exhibition games against college teams. In 1994, John again traveled to Australia to play basketball, but was stricken with a rare form of meningitis shortly after arriving. He passed away in Australia in April, 1994. The Anderson family founded a scholarship in John’s memory through the Linn-Mar Foundation... more
