During the tour, Jan White, Joan Ahlers, David Sutton and Herb McLean stand in the long corridor on the main floor. When the building was designed, teachers asked that the hall be one of the prominent features of the school. This family friendly hall allowed K-6 teachers to get to know all the students.

Los Alamos Public Schools representatives Joan Ahlers and Herb McLean conducted a teacher tour Wednesday afternoon of Aspen Elementary School.
Construction of the $18.3 million project approaches the mid-point in completion.
“We are very pleased with the progress that Jaynes Corp has made with the project,” Ahlers said. “They are a very competent contractor and we have fortunate with the weather. We have experienced zero weather delays. That is rare for a project that spans an 18 month build-out period. We are looking forward to occupying the new building soon.”
