More praise from Aspen students

-A A +A

Editor’s note: The following letters were written by sixth graders from Aspen Elementary School regarding recent renovations and rededication of the school. Keep reading the Los Alamos Monitor for more letters.

I am loving our new building for several reasons.
First of all, the dining hall is beautiful. I especially like the quietness of the room.
Second, I like the light sails on the ceiling. They also add to the scenery down on the first floor.
Third I like the glass window next to the elevator because it is cool to see the gears of it. It will be also very helpful for disabled people.
Thank you so much for building the new school and supporting the idea.

I am loving our new building for three reasons. I am grateful for the money you spent for us and I am happy for our new classrooms and I am grateful for the technology. Thank you so much for our new school.

I am loving our new building for several reasons.
First of all, the thing I’m most excited about is the new technology. In the portable, we could not use the internet all at the same time because it would cut us off.
A second reason is the new desks and chairs. They are so helpful for our binders because now we can hang them and not trip over them.
My last reason is how big our classrooms are. Now we are not crowded by each other. I am also loving the windows.
Thank you so much for our amazing new building!

I am loving our new school for three big reasons.
The first thing that surprised me is the class next to the elevator. It surprised me because I never have seen the workings of an elevator. The part I am most excited about is the new lunchroom. I like the new lunchroom because we don’t have to eat in a gym. The things that caught my eye were the tiger paws in front of the school. It caught my eye because I never have seen one thing like that.

I’m thankful for the school for several reasons. First, I feel safer because you have to buzz in before you enter the school.
Second, I love that it’s two stories because when it was one story, the older kids would run over the younger ones.
Third, I have the technology to help me with projects and class work.
Fourth, I’m glad that the music and kindergarten classes are finally in the building. Last, I love the library because it’s big and has really nice Aspen trees panes.
I have a very big thank you to the community and to everyone who voted “yes” for us to have a new school building. Thank you.

Recently, we have moved into our new Aspen Elementary School. In this building children will play, learn and grow. I hope you feel pride in the fact that you have made this possible. I have seen many changes, but one thing I have never seen change is the love for learning in this town. The people here have done many things to inspire and shape the kids of this community. We are so thankful that you have provided us with amazing opportunities to learn, and now an amazing place to learn. The school is wonderful, and we could not have gotten it without you.

I am loving our new school for a few reasons.
First off, I like this new school because it has tow stories. I think it is cool that there are two stories because we are the only elementary school that has to stories in Los Alamos.
Another reason I like this school is the windows. I like the windows because can look out the windows on the second floor.
Third, I think the new school is cool because it has nice walls. I like the walls because they have nice texture.
I like the school a lot because it has nice details.

I am loving our new school for several reasons. The first reason is because we have more room for me to learn. We can do several things without being crowded. We have a lot of new things like new desk chairs that creates an atmosphere of calmness. Thank you for spending money on our new school. I feel that I can learn better here.

I love our new building for so many reasons!
First of all, it has so many unique features like a speaker system, big windows and sinks in every classroom. The art room has a kiln and the library has a fireplace.
We also get a new dining hall so we don’t have to use the gym as the cafeteria. Thank you for being generous and kind and helping us get the new school! We are so luck you have this brand new building.
Thank you so much for caring about Aspen students!

I am loving our new building for several reasons.
First of all, the fireplace is really eye catching. It’s cool. Also, the faster technology. The faster the technology the better. Lastly, the music the teachers can play with a click of the computer. The music helps us focus. Thank you for the new school!
Luke

I love our new school for a few reasons. First is that it has two floors because if there was one, it would have been crowded. Next is the fact that the library is a lot larger than before. In the portables, we could not fit as much books. It helps us because we can learn and research, and these are the reasons I like the new school.
Isabel

I am loving our new building for three reasons.
First of all, I love my classroom because it is nice and big. It is nice because everything in it is brand new. Second of all, I like that there are two stories and I like that because it is less distracting if the littler kids are noisy. Third of all, I like that there is a dining hall and a gym, so that we don’t have to eat in the gym. Thank you so much for our new school!
Dakota

I would like to thank you for our new school for several reasons. Something that really caught my eye was the “Dining Hall.” The dining hall is very fancy, for a cafeteria although I thought it’d be bigger, but we all fit.
Another cool part of the dining hall is the chairs flip and then you are sitting on a bench with a back to lean on. I also like the shape of the building. I love the big doorway. It kind of reminds me of the municipal building. I do think the new school is easier to work in because this school is so neat and organized and I feel that being overwhelmed with clutter it’s hard to work in. In conclusion, the new school is an adventure and a fun one.
