Los Alamos Public Schools (LAPS) Superintendent Gene Schmidt detailed the district’s accomplishments and initiatives at the Back to School Staff Day.
An acknowledgement of community members and organizations that offer continuing support to the schools, including Representative James Hall and Council Chair Sharon Stover.
A thank you to the Los Alamos Fire and Police Departments for protecting the community and school during the Las Conchas fire, and to the custodians who had to do a second yearly cleaning after the fire.
Appreciation for the efforts of Kurt Steinhaus, director of community programs at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), and the LANL Foundation to create a partnership with the Smithsonian Institute to bring “hands on” science into the schools this year.
An announcement about a LAPS Foundation pilot program to place 50 Kindles in classrooms this year. “This may be the first time in Los Alamos history that you don’t see students with 35 pounds of books in a backpack,” Schmidt said.
