GFR Salute to Frontline Workers: GFPS Principals from North Middle School and The Early Learning Family Center

Great Falls Rising is acknowledging groups that are serving our community as “Frontline Workers.” Our first recognition is our Great Falls Public Schools. Our teachers, staff, administrators and all GFPS employees have fulfilled their duties to our children during a very difficult time in their careers. The pandemic has presented challenges far beyond anyone’s imagination, and our educators and front-line support staff have continued to perform their jobs admirably. We will highlight two schools each week.
Tara Rosipal, principal, (, tells us that North Middle School challenges each student to reach his/her full potential. Our Learning community focuses on a friendly, inviting school where teachers want to teach, students want to learn, and parents are confident and proud of our school. We provide a learning environment that engages student through relevant instruction, hands on learning, technology rich experiences, and collaborative practices. We give students opportunities to grow and imagine their future by offering a variety of academic and career explorations. NMS has  grades 7-8 with average of 750 students and 90 staff. We offer face to face and remote learning through Google Classrooms. On announcements each day we end with, “At NMS we take care of each other #protectthisden”  


Colette Getten, principal, ( states that The Early Learning Family Center provides early learning opportunities for children ages 3-5 who are identified as having a delay in their development or meet criteria for an exceptional circumstance. Our mission is to ensure that all children enter kindergarten with the necessary social/emotional, physical, cognitive and communication skills for continued school success.
