When January rolls around in less than a month, we have the opportunity to choose to invest in something that affects all of us at so many levels – our children, our families, our community, and our economy: the LAPS School Bond.

Let's stay up there by voting to support the bond for Los Alamos Public Schools. It will definitely be of benefit to our students, our teachers and our schools, to make our schools top notch!
