School Lunches for Purchase
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!

FOOD SAFETY ADVISORY
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
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.
