Great Ideas Grants
Twice a year LAPS educators apply for Great Ideas grants through the LAPS Foundation. This program supports teachers who have ideas for enriching the curriculum or providing students with unique learning experiences. It enables the purchase of special materials or resources for the classroom which are not typically available through the schools’ budgets.
“I would like to extend a sincere thank you the Foundation for the grant that was donated to Los Alamos Middle School. The grant award amount of $1500 served 125 students who were, because of this grant, able to create a ceramic project under the instruction of guest artist Pamela Messer. The Los Alamos Middle School in the past has been not able to afford to pay guest artists from our local community to come into the classroom and share their expertise. This grant allowed for a guest artist to come to the middle school and work with the students.”
