Dr. Kurt Steinhaus and kids at Mountain Elementary

To show its gratitude to the LAPS Foundation for 13 years of support, Los Alamos Public Schools helped to celebrate Foundation Appreciation Week. The goal of Foundation Appreciation Week was to spread the word about what the Foundation does for LAPS and how it supports the students, teachers and staff at the elementary schools, middle school and high school.

The LAPS Foundation is a non-profit organization that receives funding through generous donations from individuals and organizations. The Foundation uses this money to make dreams come true for teachers, staff and students. It has been an important funding source for Los Alamos Public Schools since 2005, supporting many projects and opportunities at our schools. In the 2017-18 school year, the LAPS Foundation was able to invest nearly $100,000 into innovative programs, training for teachers, staff morale activities, scholarships and more.

Your donation to the LAPS Foundation will continue to enable innovation and growth in all Los Alamos Public Schools. For your convenience, there are a number of ways to make a donation:

  1. Text INNOVATE to 779-48.
  2. Drop off a donation at your school. A donation box has been set up in the front office through Nov. 30.
  3. Go to the LAPS Foundation website:
  4. Mail a check to the LAPS Foundation, 1900 Diamond Dr. Ste. 1, Los Alamos, NM 87544

Thank you for your generosity and support of our schools through the Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation.

Dr. Kurt Steinhaus
