Recently, Superintendent of Schools Gene Schmidt, Aspen Elementary Principal Kathryn Vandenkieboom and others took a tour of Aspen Elementary School to see how the $12.4 million renovation of the school is progressing.
The tour included the school’s new cafeteria, the administration area, the music room, the art room and perhaps the most anticipated part of the project, the school’s main hallway, a popular feature from the old school that helped several generations of Los Alamos residents create long lasting bonds with their teachers and made school a fun place to be.
“The one thing the school wanted to retain was the hallway,” said Herb McClean, the construction coordinator for Los Alamos Public Schools. “The kindergartners would come, and they would have to walk down that long hallway to their classroom at the end. After being here for a year, they got to know the other teachers and they got to know them, so as they would really know the teachers as they moved back up the hallway as they progressed through the grades.”
There will be 14 classrooms on the first floor of the hallway and 15 on top.
