On May 2, the 8th grade journalism class took a field trip to KTVQ2 and The Billings Gazette to see first hand all that they had been learning about this year. They were able to watch the noon broadcast at Q2 and even got to be featured at the end of the newscast. Thanks to Pam at Q2, Dustin Klemann, Aja Gore, and Ed McIntosh for a great tour, advice, and the opportunity to check out the green screen.
Thanks also to John at the Gazette for the great tour. They learned much about the printing process, photography, and other information. For example, The Gazette now has a sound studio where some musical acts featured in the Enjoy section come in, record some of their music, and then have it featured on the Gazette web site? They also have their black ink delivered via tanker trucks--about 1 every 2-3 months.
Finally, our thanks to everyone at Lockwood who has donated their time, talents, and patience to help our budding journalists. It's been a great year!
Mr. Vanderbeck and Mrs. Lagge

The Special Olympics were great this year. Many of the Lockwood players placed first or second. Although the weather was not great, many parents, teachers, and students came to watch and cheer on their favorite athlete for each event. Our team from Lockwood had more than seven kids participating in the events. Ms. Amini, a teacher at Eileen Johnson Middle School, added, "It was very inspiring to see them work so hard and finish."
The fifth grade came to cheer on their classmates and did a excellent job. Not only did the fifth graders cheer on Lockwood school, they cheered on many other Montana teams. Lockwood is proud of the fifth graders for their amazing sportsmanship. Finally, thank you to Mrs. Noyd, Mrs. Poor, Mrs. Lawver, and the student volunteers for helping the Lions do well this year.
