  • A quick drive through Taos yields little more than scenic beauty. However, that’s one of the things that attracts visitors to the town. Taking time to explore the downtown area will reveal not only a place that’s rich in history, but also an extensive art scene.
    Those who have visited — and fell in love with — Santa Fe are sure to enjoy Taos. Surrounded by the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the area offers a variety of outdoor activities such as skiing, hiking, fishing, whitewater rafting, climbing, llama trekking, camping, horseback riding and of course, a plethora of art galleries, shops and restaurants.

  • Some staff members at Los Alamos Middle School are working hard to build the 40 Developmental Assets in students — and one is igniting a passion and making learning fun.
    Los Alamos Middle School teacher Caroline Haagenstad builds on the passions of her students with the GATE Passion Project, work that takes place throughout the school year.
    Recently, students had their projects on display and one definitely stood out.
    It’s not everyday that a student is encouraged to graffiti a school, but teacher Naomi Unger urged seventh grade student Evan Oro to do just that.
    The project was done through a process, which included involvement from Los Alamos Middle School Principal Rex Kilburn.
