Summertime in Los Alamos includes professional development for teachers and major school building repairs to prepare for the upcoming school year. The first day of school for students this year is Thursday, Aug 17.
One project underway at Los Alamos High School this summer is replacement of the 50-year-old floor in Griffith Gymnasium. Workers have removed the old maple wood gym floor and are now putting the wood-slats puzzle back together for a beautiful new floor.
If you would like a piece of history or maple wood for a home project, the old wood slats are free for the taking. Some of the slats even have Topper green paint.
Please be very careful in collecting the old wood slats as they are filled with nails and splinters. Safety first! The trash bin with maple wood is in front of Griffith Gymnasium and will be there until this Friday, June 30.
LAPS projects for this summer include the Smith Auditorium Lobby, design of the Barranca Mesa Elementary School major remodel, Mountain Elementary School Gym floor, HVAC systems at Chamisa and Piñon Elementary Schools, technology upgrades, and a safety shelter and field house at Sullivan Stadium.
All of this work is made possible by Los Alamos people and businesses. LAPS says thank you!
