Today's Features

  • The Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra, skillfully led by Dr. Ivan Shulman in his Los Alamos directing debut April 27, performed a difficult program with authority and depth. 

    The pieces, challenging for a small, community orchestra, were done with excellent dynamic balance and tone and a provoking intensity.  

  • New Mexico Dance Theater, directed by Susan Baker-Dillingham, presents its eighth annual spring recital, “The Sky’s the Limit,” this weekend. 

    “Spring recitals are a chance for each student to shine and perform for their families and friends,” Baker-Dillingham said. “We usually have a theme for our recitals, but this year I wanted to give the faculty free reign in choosing a theme for each of their classes; hence, the sky was the limit.”

  • For most people, when looking back at their childhoods, several memories may come to mind: running through an open field with their friends; gazing at the sky and making shapes out of the clouds. Some may even remember attending the Los Alamos Kite Festival.

    The Los Alamos Public School Foundation exists to raise funds to promote innovative learning in each of the seven public schools in Los Alamos. We believe that our children are our future and that a quality education is critical to prepare them for an increasingly complex workplace and world. The Foundation supports and invests in a successful future for all LAPS students through grants and programs.
    Great Conversations, our signature fundraiser event April 22 at Los Alamos High School, was a huge success.
    The fabulous food and the terrific speakers make this annual event one not to be missed. Mark your calendars for April 2013. 

  • The National Association for Music Education recently announced the members of the 2011 All-National Honor Ensembles based on the audition results.
    Aaron Bao, a junior at Los Alamos High School, was named to the NAfME 2012 All-National Concert Band performing trumpet (cornet).
    He will travel to Washington, D.C. in June to rehearse and perform.

    Dick Tatro, president of LARSO, along with Bert Dennis and other helpers, has built about 100 wheelchair ramps for people in the community and in communities in Northern New Mexico.

  • Haylie Jude works with Los Alamos Middle School Teacher Stephanie Krantz recently, at a community event at the Los Alamos Co-op Market. The event was part of the State Farm Youth Advisory Board’s work with the Los Alamos Youth Food Project.

  • Thank you to the cast and crew of RAGS
    Thank you to everyone involved the recent Olions’ production of RAGS.  It was wonderful.  You all did a terrific job and should be very proud of your efforts. May you all have great memories of your performances and remember all the positives of your work.

  • Please feel free to burst into song with me … “It’s the most wonderful time of the year …”
    Did you know it is staff and teacher appreciation week? I hope you will take a second to show those who really make a difference that they are appreciated.
    I assume the week was selected with the proximity to Mother’s Day, but don’t forget the awesome number of male asset builders out there.
    I also think the idea of appreciating staff and teachers couldn’t come at a better time.
    This seems to be the time of year when students lose their minds, begin to forget the rules or have already left the building mentally in anticipation of summer.
