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!

Students in third grade will be participating in the annual GATE (Gifted And Talented Education) assessment during the week of February 22nd-26th. Students will be assessed over a three-day period using the CogAT 7 (Cognitive Abilities Test). Students are not encouraged to study for the CogAT. This tool simply measures how students think logically, not what they have learned in school.  More information will be provided immediately prior to the assessment window. If you would like to learn more about GATE or opting out of this assessment, please contact the Principal Lawrence Gotanco at LGOTANCO@ALAMEDA.K12.CA.US .


To opt out, please print this OPT-OUT LETTER and submit to your child's Grade 3 teacher.


Problem Solving.jpg



January is the month of problem solving.  We face so many different challenges in our lives and in our world.  We have the opportunity to identify them, but we have an even greater opportunity to create solutions.  As I stated in my letter and the autodialer message a couple of weeks ago, Olivia Torres has joined the Lum Family as our new office manager.  As she has transitioned into this new role, I would like to honor her for facing challenges and creating solutions.  Her organization, her professionalism, her kindness, and her warmth have made transformed this challenging time into an exciting time.  Please join me once again in welcoming her into the Lum Family!

2016-2017 Enrollment Information - TK/K

For information on how to enroll, please go to http://www.alameda.k12.ca.us/enrollment.  Also, please peruse our PowerPoint presentation (click here) from the Kinder Roundup Information Night at Lum on January 14th.



This week, a student was given nuts for a birthday celebration, and he had an allergic reaction.  He had to spend several hours in the hospital, and it caused worry and anxiety for his parents.  For this reason, we want to remind all families that we cannot have nut products in school.  This includes lunches and celebrations.


Also, this is a gentle reminder to please not bring gift bags for children during celebrations.


Finally, please remember that the only type of food that may be brought for celebrations must come from one of the following:

1. licensed food vendor

2. restaurant

3. packaged food from a store


Thank you for your cooperation in ensuring the safety of all of our children!






November is the month of cooperation, which is simply “working together.”  When we practice cooperation, we have the opportunity to see the strengths that others have. We have the chance to see outside our worlds.  We gain the power to grow in our patience, our flexibility, our understanding, and our empathy.  In the process, we gain allies and become allies ourselves.  During this month of cooperation, let’s support our children through both our words and our examples how to cooperate with others and the benefits cooperation bring to our school, our city, our world.
