What can I do to help?

While we navigate the impact that Covid-19 has on our Lakewood Families, one element remains strong: care and compassion for helping others in our community. Monday’s April PTO meeting addressed this critical matter.

Many have inquired on how they might be able to help our community. We ask those who wish to help our Lakewood families to please make a donation to Food Gatherers.


Thank you!

Thank you to our amazing sponsors for making the auction so successful! We raised over $37,000 for Lakewood Elementary! And a BIG thank you to Dan Appledorn! This auction is only as great as its leader and we had one of the best!

Lakewood Auction

March 6th at Polo Fields Golf and Country Club, 6:30 p.m.

The following is a link to the Lakewood Auction held on March 6th. Please come and help us to support and celebrate our school community: Lakewood Auction – Roaring 20s.

We’re also looking for volunteers to help out at the auction. Sign up for a small time commitment and plenty of fun!

Last year’s auction raised $30,000 for our Lakewood Lizard Community, 60% of our annual PTO budget! These funds are used to pay for teacher classroom supplies, field trip entrance fees and busing, events such as VIP breakfast and the Disability Awareness Workshop, and it helps to pay for a portion of 5th grade camp. In addition to these annual budget items, thanks to this community’s generosity, we have been able to pay for the rock wall in the gym, painting of the hallways and MPR, bulletin boards and a brand new teacher book room. If that isn’t reason enough to go to the auction, consider it a fun evening out to connect with other parents and teachers with dinner, drinks and dancing.


Lakewood Coin Drive

Start saving your coins! Students can donate coins to their classroom everyday during the week of February 10 – 14 to help raise money for Lakewood. Classes will compete to see who can collect the most money to win a pizza party sponsored by the Lakewood PTO. This is a fun way for students to get involved in raising money for their school and have a great time while doing it! If parents are interested, they are welcome to match the donations of their child’s classroom. Thank you for supporting our school!


Student Council Food Drive

Lakewood Student Council is hosting a Food Drive, December 9th– 18th

  • Please bring any non-perishable canned or boxed food to school.
  • Boxes will be located at the front of the school for donations.
  • All donations will go to Food Gatherers of Ann Arbor.

PTO Meeting cancelled for Monday, November 11th

Due to inclement weather tonight’s PTO meeting is cancelled.  We are unsure if it will be rescheduled at this time, but will let the Lakewood community know as soon as a decision is made.  Thank you for understanding!
