  • Good morning asset builders. This week, we need your help in raising the asset category of reading for pleasure.
    Our most recent data point for this asset is that 32 percent of local students feel like they spend a certain amount of time reading or listening to books outside of school for pleasure.
    One way I know we can increase this asset across the board is to give books as gifts. You can take it to the extreme by giving the book you enjoy the most.

  • Last month I moved to Los Alamos and very soon I found out - this is a city of science, “where discoveries are made.” I wanted to know if people here are ready to discover their inner world.
    The more I began thinking about restarting my therapy practice here, the more I became stressed out. I literally stopped experiencing the joy of life.
    Every time I feel disoriented I look inside for insight.

  • The LAHS Wish List can help Los Alamos High School staff help students and their friends succeed. Teachers often buy classroom supplies with their own money or students go without needed supplies.

    Donated items may be dropped off at the LAHS front office with a note including your name and the staff name. LAHS will ensure that the items will be given to the requesting staff member.
