Having inspiring learning environments is important to our students’ education. The LAPS Foundation facilitates classroom updates and makeovers as needed. Projects have included the LAMS Band Room, the LAHS Language and Science Labs, the Mountain School Art Room, among others. The LAPS Foundation also installs outdoor classrooms at LAPS schools, made possible by a bequest by Ed and Betty Rynd.
“The Mountain staff and students have greatly appreciated the Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation’s support in improving our learning environment for our students. In 2015, the Mountain art room was renovated through a grant from the LAPS Foundation. The ceiling was lowered and completed to create better lighting and a warmer learning space. The Foundation installed new counters and sinks. The result was a beautiful art classroom that all 440 students visit each week every year. Our art room is now a welcoming learning center for Mountain students.”
