 The Linn-Mar Community Takes Part in America Reads Day

The Linn-Mar Community School District would like to thank the hundreds of volunteers who took part in America Reads Day 2016.

High school students, parents, grandparents, city officials, local radio and television celebrities, professional athletes, and district representatives took time out of their day to share a story without elementary students.

America Reads, now in its 20th year, is a national challenge to improve literacy among elementary-age children. Locally, it is a two-day, joint event with Marion Independent, Cedar Rapids CSD, College Community CSD , Metro Catholic, and Summit Schools.

Last year, more than 2,500 community members shared their joy of reading with over 16,900 elementary students in grades preschool through 5th grade.

 theROARstore Celebrates Grand Reopening with Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Linn-Mar High School students from Mr. Corey Brinkmeyer's Business class were joined by district administrators and members of the Marion Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, October 18th for a ribbon cutting ceremony marking the grand reopening of theROARstore.

The group had been asked to develop a course that would enable students to apply what they had learned through Business classes in a meeting held in 2012 with Principal Dr. Jeff Gustason. In 2014, the initial group of students met to discuss the store's business plan and create a framework for the direction of the business.This eventually led to the opening of a mobile kiosk in 2014 and students selling licensed merchandise for the first time. As a result, interest for both Linn-Mar products and the associated Business course increased.

Currently, there are 19 students in the class. The brick and mortar store currently offers "about 45 different products," said Mr. Brinkmeyer, "we've ordered another 5-10 products that will also be part of our regular inventory."

theROARstore's regular business hours for the 1st quarter are 8:00 am - 4:00 pm on Thursdays and Fridays.

Congratulations to theROARstore team for officially opening!
