This year, the LAHS Homecoming Court wanted to continue a tradition started in 2019 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. This year’s focus will be supporting student grants implemented through LAPS Foundation. Student grants give high school and middle school students the opportunity to plan a project that benefits students/schools and apply for a grant from LAPS Foundation. It’s an excellent way to involve students in planning the positive impacts they want to see at their schools.
The students are encouraging members of the community to donate to the LAPS Foundation, specifically to fund student grants for the 2021-2022 school year.
Gwyneth Lyons, a senior and member of the Homecoming Court, said “We all love our school so much, so we want to make it even better by giving students the power to improve it! Every donation is appreciated.”
The Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by the IRS.
