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!

Informational Meeting at Lum Elementary School
Wednesday, January 14, 2015, 6:30-7:30
Multipurpose Room

TOPIC: Enrollment Information for Incoming TK and Kinders



Happy New Year, Lum Family!  I hope you found the break restful, relaxing, and full of joy.

January is the month of courage.  At this time each year, many of us often feel a sense of hope and excitement.  However, sometimes we may feel overwhelmed with a sense of fear.  As in decades and centuries past, we face challenges and struggles in our world that may feel too difficult to overcome or even take on.  Still, like many heroes before us, such as Martin Luther King, Jr., we can find the courage to make the world a better place by choosing to share with others the unique gifts and talents (our own heroic “powers”) within us.

Here are just a few situations in which our children can choose courage over fear:

  • If someone does something at school to them that makes them feel unsafe or disrespected, they can show courage by telling an adult rather than trying to hurt the other person back.
  • If they are afraid of trying something new, they can show courage by thinking of positive consequences (e.g., they have fun, they learn something new) and actually trying.
  • If they are afraid of giving the wrong answer in class, they can show courage by trying to give an answer anyway.  We can never grow fully if we never make mistakes.

This month, let’s work together through our words and our example to teach our children how to be courageous Lum heroes.



Lum Bee's and Super Lum Bear.jpg
On October 24, 2014, the Lum Family PTA hosted Fall Family Fun Night 2014.  This annual celebration included food, games, costumes, and a haunted house.  This year, in honor of our school rules -- the Four Be's -- teachers (from left) Meredith Iserson, Kristen McCarty, (from right) Kim Hare, and Nalani Ngoon dressed as "Four Bee's."  Teacher Michele Silsdorf (third from right) dressed as the "Queen Bee."  They were joined by Super Lum Bear (who was donning a red cape created by 1st grade teacher Denise Ratto's class).
