One of the ongoing activities of the Los Alamos High School Topper Parent Organization is to present a list of items needed by LAHS teachers to meet or enhance educational needs.
Parents, community groups and individuals are encouraged to donate. Based on available funds and priorities, the TPO may also acquire items for staff use.
By providing items on the LAHS Wish List, community members can help cover the gaps in supply funding, so teachers don’t have to purchase so many supplies themselves.
Drop off items at the LAHS front office with a note indicating which department and teacher you would like the donation directed to and your name (optional.)
