This year, the LAHS Stay@Home-Coming Court wanted to continue a tradition started last year and similar to other schools nationwide called Court for a Cause. It is a chance for the students who have been recognized to come together and give back to the community, and they chose to support teachers!

The students are encouraging members of the community to donate to the LAPS Foundation, specifically to fund teacher appreciation for the 2020-2021 school year.

Michaela Gonzales, a member of the Stay@Home-Coming Court, said “All the teachers at LAHS work super hard to make school a fun, interactive, learning environment for us students! They make such a big difference in our lives and the least we could do is to show our appreciation and show our thankfulness for everything they do- especially in this crazy time of adjustment and change!”

The Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by the IRS.
