EJMS Student Council
Welcome to the Eileen Johnson Middle School! In the spring of 2012, the Lockwood Middle School was renamed the Eileen Johnson Middle School in honor of then retiring superintendent Eileen Johnson. Many important projects, including the construction of the new middle school building, were undertaken during Mrs. Johnson's tenure. The school board dedicated the school to Mrs. Johnson in thanks for her many years of dedication to the district.
Sixth grade, seventh grade, and eighth grade students attend classes in the middle school.
Mr. Gordon Klasna is the principa of EJMSl. In 2017, Mr. Klasna was named Principal of the Year by the Montana Association of Secondary School Principals. Mr. Tony Derrig is the Dean of Students/AD. The middle school secretary is Mrs. Stacy Schlepp. The middle school may be reached at 406-259-0154. There are over 400 students and several classroom teachers, specialists and support staff in the middle school who provide a great learning environment for our students. We are the Lockwood Lions!

Games will be played at both their place and Lockwood during the weekdays and also on Saturdays.

Each student who plans to play sports will be responsible for a $40 fee (football cost will be a little higher than the other sports but will be significantly lower than Little Guy), a physical that will need to be done at a licensed facility and turned into the school, complete a concussion release form and maintain grades at or above a 60%.
All middle school students will be required to purchase a PE/Athletic uniform. The cost for the shirt and shorts set is $25. They can be purchased in the middle school office or online payment information can be found at lockwoodschool.org, using the link for the Extracurricular Web Store. These uniforms are to be worn at all times during PE classes and are also the uniforms for our sporting events. Students may purchase a new uniform if they need a different size or have lost one or both of the items. There is assistance for families that cannot afford the cost. Please contact the middle school office at 259-0154 x3 if you have any questions or need assistance.
