Golden Sneaker Contest

Lace up those shoes, dust off those bikes, or get ready to share your ride! The Safe Routes to Schools Pollution Solution 2017: Golden Sneaker Contest is coming to your school!

For 2 weeks from February 27 to March 10, every classroom will be tracking and talking about the benefits of using active transportation – walking and rolling (biking, skateboarding or using a scooter) or shared transportation (riding the school bus, using public transportation and/or carpooling with other families) – to come to school. The classroom with the highest percentage of these healthy travel choices will win the Golden Sneaker Trophy and gift certificates to the Student Store!

The Golden Sneaker contest offers a chance for every student to participate. If you live too far from school to walk or roll you can always:

  • Park a few blocks away and walk
  • Meet up with friends who live close to school and walk as a group
  • Start a carpool

Yearbook Photos Needed!

The Yearbook Committee is working hard to put together another fabulous book of memories for our Lum Bears.  We need your help!  Please submit any photos of our students and staff learning and playing!  Class field trips, art/garden docent lessons, fun at recess and in the classroom, PTA events, assemblies, etc.  Your photos are crucial to making this the most wonderful yearbook YET!  Go to the Yearbook page and follow the easy instructions to submit your photos.
