Sprucing up the classroom

-A A +A

Los Alamos Public Schools’ physical condition could get some healing through a potential 20-year facility plan, but not all classrooms will be given attention.

“It’s just a matter of priority,” explained Los Alamos Public School Foundation board member Morrie Pongratz. For instance, at Los Alamos High School, the plan addresses B, C and D wings, but not E-wing, the location for science classrooms.

He said the B, C and D wings are next to each other, which makes it easier. Plus, in the past, bond money has been used to create two new science classrooms. Pongratz added, “You just can’t do everything.”

Los Alamos Public School Foundation board, however, is campaigning to give some care to either E-17 or E-19 in the E-wing at LAHS. “Classroom Makeover” will be introduced to the community during the July 4 festivities at Overlook Park. The foundation board will have a booth at the event with information about the campaign.

The goal of the campaign is to raise $100,000 to revitalize the classroom. The foundation members would like to install new flooring, countertops, lighting and windows. Additionally, they hope to create a separate office with storage space for the teacher. One of the ways the money will be raised is through a mass mailing, asking families to donate to the campaign.
