The Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation leverages time, talent and funds to promote innovative learning.
The school children of Los Alamos are our future. A
quality education prepares our children to meet the demands
of an increasingly complex workplace and world.
As an independent organization, the Los Alamos Public
Schools Foundation supports, challenges, and invests in a
successful future for all LAPS students.
The Los Alamos High School Librarian, Ken Holmes, received a grant for teachers to review a variety of young adult literature. This will include teachers of all subjects fifth grade through middle school, K-12 librarians and the Mesa Public Libraries Youth Services Librarians. The group will select contemporary young adult novels across a number of genres that would be appealing to 10 to 14 year old students. They will divide the titles among the participants and will read the selected titles and provide a “book talk” about the novel at the next meeting by telling about its appeal or lack of appeal and applications within the classroom curriculum.
