Lion in Cave
Lockwood PTA: News from "The Den"

"Check this out!": Thank you to Mrs. Gopp and her G&T 7th & 8th graders who came to visit the PTA at the January meeting. They did a GREAT job presenting their project and will now be partnering with the PTA via the "Lift a Lion" pilot program we implemented this year. If you would like to know how you could support these bright students and their project, please contact Lacey at or Mrs. Gopp: at

Read-A-Thon: We are excited for our Read-a-thon fundraiser coming up the end of February. This will be an opportunity for students K-5 to read to their hearts content and win some sweet prizes while doing so! It will also help raise essential funds to support PTA events and programs throughout the school year. Currently we are seeking prizes (K-5 appropriate) and a grand prize sponsor. If you might be able to help with this please contact Heather at 406-300-2370 or or Loree at 406-855-4399 or Volunteers will be needed for other areas of the event. More information to come on that. Please contact if interested.

Save the Date!!! Monday, February 19 is our next annual "Lockwood Day at the Reef!" from 12:00-7 :00 p.m. More to come on this!!

Spring Picture Day: Wednesday, March 1 will be spring pictures and we need fun, motivated people who would love to hang out with kiddos to help get them "picture perfect!"

We are looking for full or 1/2 day time slots and you will receive a free picture package voucher for helping!!!
