“The OSMO technology grant has our students working hard on self-portraits for a bibliography project for their 5th grade teachers.  I wish I could have captured how much confidence they have gained while doing their portraits. This is just the beginning of how much fun we are going to have with these OSMO’s”

“For over 10 years, Linn-Mar elementary students have had the opportunity to experience performances and workshops by the OPERAIowa Troupe, an educational component of The Des Moines Metro Opera.  With the generous funding from the Linn-Mar School Foundation, students are able to experience first hand the beauty, technical skill, humor and stage design of a live theatrical performance.  The look of wonder and awe on the faces of students and staff alike is priceless.  Thank you to the Foundation’s donors who make live opera accessible to the entire Linn-Mar elementary student body!”

-Mrs. Walker, Novak General Music Teacher

“The virtual reality technology grant we received will provide our English Learning Language (ELL) students the opportunity to have shared learning experiences and the background knowledge necessary to elevate learning to a new level”

“The Linn-Mar School Foundation was fundamental in jump-starting our Makerspace at the Iowa BIG location on Boyson Road by providing the funding to get a 3D printer, drone, 3D cameras and virtual reality equipment. The students’ eyes lit up when they brought in the equipment that provided a vehicle for them to make their current projects and future projects a reality.”
-Iowa BIG Teaching Staff
