School Lunches for Purchase

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.

Fundraising for Our School: Amazon.LumPTA.com

Amazon.LumPTA.com: Holiday shopping has begun for many of us!  Don’t forget to shop at Amazon.LumPTA.com.  A portion of each purchase made at this specific link is automatically donated to Lum PTA.  Last year, this program earned our school $2000!  So bookmark it on your computer, and tell all your friends, families and neighbors.  Easiest fundraiser ever!

March is the month of perseverance, which simply means “not giving up.”  Simple to define?  Yes.  Difficult to do? Often times, yes.

Perseverance is often coupled with a growth mindset, or a perspective that we are not defined by labels or fixed characteristics but rather by the choices we make, the lessons we learn, the steps we take to become better human beings.  Life often presents us with seemingly impossible challenges.  Perseverance and a growth mindset help us to grow in our beliefs, take us to new limits, and squash any doubt that we will achieve our goals.  They help us conquer what we once thought was impossible.  This month, let’s teach our children through our word and our example that when we keep on trying, when we don’t give up, when we persevere, we grow as heroes and allies for ourselves, our family, our community, our world.
