Lockwood is hosting the 8th Annual Yellowstone County Middle School Music Festival on March 2. It will be in Eileen Johnson Middle School.
Three weeks ago, 8th graders who had two or less missing assignments had the opportunity to spend the morning with Mr. Karls volunteering at Montana Rescue Mission. From moving bins of Christmas decorations to sorting clothing hangers, our students worked hard to serve in their community and enjoyed spending time together in a different environment. The spirit of giving was evident during the bus ride as choir kids belted a variety of seasonal tunes. Many students enjoyed sorting shoes and finding peculiar items such as old knickknacks in the basement where we were located. After a quick interview, Tayalyn Williams said, "My favorite part was sorting yarn. It was actually really fun! We threw it in buckets and threw some at each other, too." Students were allowed to bring their own lunches and many of us enjoyed leftover Halloween candy. After many laughs and hard work, we boarded the bus once again and returned to school in time for our lunch period. Although we were only at the mission for a few hours, I'm sure this first-time event will be a new, favorite tradition.
