Emergency Kits

Emergency Kit Sales:  Emergency Kits are required for each student.  In an effort to make life a bit easier for you, the Lum PTA has prepared Emergency Kits for each student.  We are asking for $5 to offset the costs, and all we ask you to add (if possible) is a sealed fruit or meat item and your personal item (e.g., family photo, letter).  Glow sticks and thermal blankets are also available for $2 each.  Kits are available in the Office.

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

2015.03.23

INTEGRITY
 

Integrity entails the integrating, or combining, of belief and action.  Yet to achieve integrity, it entails the integrating of other character traits and life skills.  It requires perseverance.  Sometimes acting on our beliefs does not always reap the benefits that we had hoped it would.  It requires courage.  Often times our beliefs are in opposition to the beliefs of others.  It requires cooperation.  Acting on our beliefs often requires that we both seek out and provide support for those who share our common beliefs.  Whether we believe in a cleaner environment, preventing bullying, or simply in the power of honesty, our children always have opportunities to build their integrity. Let’s work together with them to achieve integrity by integrating the traits and skills we have been and continue to nurture with our children this school year.

THE GOLDEN SNEAKER POLLUTION SOLUTION CONTEST - APRIL 13TH-APRIL 24TH

Let's reduce nasty pglobal-smog-26819190.jpgollution and car craziness around school.  For the two-week period from April 13th through April 24th, walk, bike, ride the bus, or carpool with another household to and from school.  Be sure to log your mode of transport everyday.  The grade with the highest percentage of students doing their part will win the Golden Sneaker Trophy and celebrate with a smoothie party using the bike blender.  

Don't worry if you live too far to walk or bike, just leave the car a few blocks away from school and walk that bit.

LCAP SURVEY FOR PARENTS/GUARDIANS AND 4TH AND 5TH GRADE STUDENTS DUE 3/31/2015

Beginning July 1, 2013, the State of California changed the funding formula for public education and requires school districts to develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is a plan that aligns the District’s educational goals with financial resources. The LCAP is a critical part of the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). Under the LCFF all Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) are required to prepare an LCAP, which describes how they intend to meet annual goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities identified pursuant to Education Code Section 52060(d).

California school districts must engage parents, educators, employees, and the community to establish these plans. The plans will describe the school district’s overall vision for students, annual goals and specific actions that will be taken to achieve the vision and goals. The LCAPs must focus on eight areas identified as state priorities. The plans will also demonstrate how the district’s budget will help achieve the goals, and assess each year how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.

We invite all AUSD parents/guardians to complete the attached optional and anonymous survey by March 31, 2015. Participating is easy: simply click on the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YSSMZB2

AUSD would also like to survey for student voices and opinions. We encourage parent/guardians to support younger students (4th grade and beyond) in completing the survey and hope that older students also take advantage of the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7SSQBN8

GATE TESTING FOR ALL THIRD GRADERS

We are officially beginning our GATE assessment on Monday, March 30, 2015, and will test through Thursday, ­­­April 2, 2015. Good attendance is encouraged during these days of test administration. The assessment should take no more than one hour each morning. This is not the sort of test that can be prepared for and your students should not be worried or nervous about it. Here is a description of the CogAT (GATE assessment):

CogAT appraises the cognitive development of students from kindergarten through grade 12. The test measures students’ learned reasoning abilities. Although grounded in biological processes, these abilities are developed through in-school and out-of-school experiences. The questions on CogAT require students to demonstrate their reasoning abilities in each of three symbol systems most closely related to success in school: verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, and nonverbal reasoning.

  • The Verbal Battery assesses students’ abilities to use search, retrieval, and comparison processes that are essential for verbal reasoning.

  • The Quantitative Battery assesses students’ abilities to reason about patterns and relations using concepts that are essential in quantitative thinking.

  • The Nonverbal Battery assesses students’ abilities to reason with somewhat more novel questions that use spatial and figural content.

If you would like to learn more about GATE or opting out of this assessment, please contact Principal Lawrence Gotanco at lgotanco@alameda.k12.ca.us.
