  • Students and parents broaden their horizons

    Home, sweet, home when associated with education, is what many kids these days know better than everyone else.
    With the growing popularity of home schooling, more kids are taking part in this alternative form of education.
    In fact, a recent study has shown that home schooling has more than doubled in the last 10 years.
    The U.S. Department of Education said that nearly two million students are being home schooled nationwide, which is a 74 percent jump since 1999.
    To add to the numbers, there are 9,000 registered home school families in New Mexico this year.
    But why such a rise? A few of the main reasons are that the parents don’t like the public school environment or that their children are bullied.

  • ‘A Christmas Carol’ helped kick off the season

    “A Christmas Carol” is just one of the many beloved Christmas tales performed this time of year.
    This time around, the New Mexico Dance Theater Performance Company told the story of Ebenezer through ballet.
    The non-verbal version of this old tale was one that will not soon be forgotten.
    According to dancer Alice Vaeirs, the dancers started preparing for this performance around the middle of August, leaving them with four months until the first show.
    Alicia Bowyer played the ghost of Christmas past. Bowyer’s parents said she danced eight hours a week, preparing for her performances.
    The story portrayed by NMDT-PC was the same as the classic tale, without changing the story line.

    I’ve made you a list and I’ve checked it twice. It’s the time of year for you ladies to start making Christmas wish lists. This year though, I have derived one for you that includes all of the key pieces of clothing that, by all means, should not be missing from your wardrobe. Of course, you should already have most of these pieces, but you may not have all five of the pieces that are essential to a basic wardrobe.

  • Students on a mission

    Just about everyone at Los Alamos Middle School is lending the community a helping hand.
    Each of the LAMS “Hawk” groups has the responsibility of raising money for the community by way of a food drive. Each group is supposed to bring in cans of food that will be distributed to needy Los Alamos families this holiday season.
    Heading up this project is Tina Derr, leader of E2, or Eternal Encouragement, a  Christian club open for middle school students during their lunch break, that allows them to hear some Christian encouragement from local youth leaders and pastors. In addition, the group offers games, fellowship and preparation for service projects.
