The Principal's Corner
"Be the change you wish to see in the world."  
Ghandi

Hello Bulldogs!!  Welcome back to the Principal’s Corner.  We have a very exciting week ahead here at Linn.  Winter has finally started to peak its head in, and we are seeing leaves fall and frost appear.  At my house Christmas movies have already begun to appear on television regularly.  Yes, we are in November, and this upcoming week is one of the neatest we have at Linn.

First off we have to prepare for the school Play.  This Friday at seven pm Mrs. Friedrichs will be directing the students in another phenomenal show “How the Other Half Dies.”  From my experience in watching what Mrs. Friedrichs does, this will be another wonderful show.  It looks to be both hilarious and dramatic.  The students have been working so hard.  It seems almost every night some kids are at the school late prepping for this.  Their effort, creativity, and courage are undeniable.  I can’t say enough how excited I am to get to see this.  Now, if you are unable to make the show this Friday we will also be having our matinee for our elementary students and Linn Lutheran this Wednesday at one pm.  Again, this looks to be an amazing show, so please come out and enjoy.

Now, a late night can make things difficult for dinner.  It can be hard to get the family fed and then dressed and ready for the show.  Well, have no fear.  The freshmen class is putting on a soup supper for the night of the show.  The supper will begin at five, and will go all the way until the start of the show.  It is five dollars, and along with the soups there will also be an assortment of desserts.  So come out, and we will take care of your dinner needs and you will also help to support the freshmen class.

Next Monday we will be having a very big event here at Linn.  With Mr. Miller moving over to Spanish and PE it was wondered if our annual Veteran’s Day program would continue.  Mr. Cook and the current senior class however have worked hard to continue this event.  We will be hosting our annual Veteran’s Day this coming Monday the thirteenth at nine am.  The whole community is welcome to come and help us support our local veterans, and all men and women who have put their lives at risk to keep us safe.

Then, a week from Tuesday we will have our winter picture day for our clubs and athletes.  Please make sure you have spoken with your athletes about what you want in terms of pictures for this day.  Also, that night we will have our annual fall sports banquet.  This meal will be a potluck meal again, and we will be hearing from Linn alum, and current Wamego superintendent Tim Winter.

Now, I want to give a good news shout out to Mark Oelschlager.  Now, as many of you know, our main boiler at Linn went down.  With winter right around the corner this is a major issue for our school.  We have multiple rooms that do not have direct heat.  Not only did Mr. Oelschlager run around and acquire us some heat sources for each room, but he also spent tireless hours getting bids out and options for our board so that a decision on what to do could be reached quickly.  Not only did Mark work fast, but he also did amazing work.  So, thank you Mr. Oelschlager for doing all you could for the students of Linn.

Thank you

It’s a great day to be a Bulldog!
