Greetings from the Superintendent’s Desk!
The longer I am with the Los Alamos Schools, the more I realize that this is truly an amazing place for teaching, learning, and extracurricular activities. Our students, staff, and parents are nothing short of wonderful.
Here is a quick summary from just one weekend (yes, the weekend):
- Los Alamos High School won the regional National Science Bowl Competition in a neck and neck finale with Albuquerque Academy
- The Middle School cheerleaders won first place at their regional competition
- Five robotics teams competed in a state competition and the “Quadrumaniacs” are headed to nationals; they also won the Inspiration Award
- I saw a wonderful production of Beauty and the Beast by the Atomic City Children’s Theater
- Fourteen AP Psychology students participated in the 5th Annual New Mexico Brain Bee; they rocked the competition against students from around the state. Three senior AP Psych-os won the top spots: Antonio Dowdy was 1st, Elodie Thelliez was 2nd, and Catherine Rousculp was 3rd
- The Los Alamos High School Wrestling Team won their district competition and are now two-time district champs
- The Varsity Girls’ Basketball Team is undefeated in district play
- A total of 40 Los Alamos Swim Team athletes qualified for the state meet
We strive to ensure that our students are thriving, our staff is thriving and our community is thriving.
