Linn-Mar graduation season will soon be upon us.  Pretty soon, nearly 485 Linn-Mar High School seniors will don a cap and gown, collect their diploma and head off to their futures, whatever it may be. It’s an exciting time for these young adults and their parents, but it’s also a time for reflecting on how far they’ve come!

The Foundation has launched a new tradition the senior PRIDE Walk!  Our PRIDE rules of Promote positive attitudes; Respect yourself and others; Insist on your personal best; Discuss and listen actively; Expect honesty and be trustworthy will be modeled by our seniors for our young elementary students.  They look up to these high school students and we know the seniors will also get a lot out of this fun, enriching experience.

Linn-Mar seniors will sign up with our PRIDE captains and be welcomed back to their elementary schools including Bowman Woods, Echo Hill, Novak, Indian Creek, Linn Grove, Westfield and Wilkins and be cheered on, high fived and enjoy smiles galore from our youngest students.  We cannot wait for our first annual PRIDE walk!!
