Letter to the Editor: LAPS Foundation Says Thanks

on May 24, 2012 - 8:37am

Good community citizens are not hard to come by in our small town. 

We have those who care for the elderly and those who care for the very young. 

The Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation wishes to express its sincere thanks to the long-time proprietors of Central Avenue Grill, Min and Monica Park.

In a final act of kindness and with their eye on the many students and teacher in our fine public school system, the Parks invited everyone in the community for a delicious array of appetizers and beverages asking only that those in attendance donate $5 to the LAPS Foundation.  

Donations totaling $506 were given and later hand delivered to the Foundation office. 

That was nothing new, hardly a week went by in the life of Central Avenue Grill when the owners were not giving to a soccer team, a Los Alamos Youth Leadership team, a civic group or a local non-profit. 

As the LAPS Foundation strives to fund innovative opportunities and materials for our schools, create a school environment in which students are inspired to learn, and provide quality professional development opportunities for district educators, the Parks once again joined our efforts and helped us succeed in giving our fine school system the financial assistance needed to execute its efforts.

Thank you Min and Monica!

Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation,

Board of Directors and Staff
