SPRING FLING CARNIVAL & RAFFLE: What a fantastic day at Lum! Thank you to all the families and staff and volunteers who helped make our 3rd annual Spring Fling a huge success. Not only did we raise money for Lum, but we showed that fantastic Lum spirit. Fun games, tasty food, soaked staff, terrific entertainment – it was a blast!!
FIRE UP YOUR FEET: Only 1 more week til the Spring Challenge ends! Fire Up Your Feet is a great national program that encourages families to maintain healthy lifestyles with physical activity. From April 15-May 15, all Lum students, staff, and their families (parents, grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles) can register ANY and ALL physical activity at www.fireupyourfeet.org, and Lum will be in the running for a $5,000 award!! In the past year, Lum was awarded nearly $3000 through this program! Think of all the possiblities–walking/biking to and from school, exercise classes, the gym, afterschool activities for the kids, sports teams, and so much more! Email Kelly@LumPTA.com for more info. Volunteers will be tracking our students’ activity during school hours (recess, PE, etc) but all activity outside of school can be tracked by YOU!
TEACHER & STAFF APPRECIATION MONTH: May is Teacher and Staff Appreciation Month at Lum! It is a great opportunity to show the teachers and staff our appreciation for all their hard work and devotion to our children. Staff expressed much thanks for last week’s beautiful flowers. This week families will be showing their appreciation with a potluck lunch for the staff on Tuesday.
BIKE TO SCHOOL & WORK DAY: Let’s celebrate at Lum this week! Biking to school helps our environment, decreases traffic, and improves our physical health and emotional well-being. On Thursday May 11, ride your bike to school for goodies, refreshments, and dancing fun 8-8:20 am on the yard. See you in the bike lane!
