  • Enrichment Funding

    The PTA funds many enrichment initiatives for Lewis and Clark students. 
    We provide money for projects that support the students' academic, artistic, cultural, and physical development; that help meet students' basic needs; that improve students' and teachers' access to and understanding of technology; and that foster inclusiveness and the celebration of diversity.
    The PTA's largest funded program is paying for the salary of the Family Resource Center (FRC) and supporting the ongoing operation of this very valued program.  The PTA provides $6000.00 to teacher grants used for field trips and special classroom supplies, $500.00 for staff appreciation, $500.00 to maintain the outdoor discovery core, financial support of the EAST program and much, much more.  Over the last few years, every grade level has benefitted by money raised by and provided by the PTA.
    Requests for funds over $150 will be reviewed 2 times a year, at the October, and March PTA meetings.  In order to be reviewed during one of these cycles, this form must be submitted to the PTA one week before those meetings.   
    You can fill out the application form here .

  • Announcements / Events


     Coffee, Toffee, Tea Funraiser - October 13 to October 21.


    The Coffee, Toffee, Tea items for sale are provided by local Montana vendors Florence Coffee, Montana Tea & Spice Co., Bequet Caramels and the Sweets Barn. Selling these items are a great way to support both Lewis and Clark and a local business...and the items make great gifts! 
    The PTA relies on fundraising money  to support the numerous programs and funding  needs of the school. Some of these include teacher grants used for classroom supplies, educational tools and programming, field trips, financial support of the Family Resource Center,  staff salary for FRC as well as programs such as our school's Outdoor Discovery Core, EAST program, Staff Appreciation week and much more. This fundraiser assists all grade-levels and goes directly back to the teachers and students of Lewis and Clark.




    Regular Meeting Schedule:

    We meet on the third Tuesday of each month. The PTA meetings are from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. We start promptly at the designated time.
