GFR Gives Thanks to our Schools’ Frontline Workers: Giant Springs and Mountain View Elementary Schools

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.

Rhonda Zobrak, principal, ( reminds us that Giant Springs Elementary is the Roosevelt Replacement School. She states, “we are currently in our 3rd year with all of the students from Roosevelt; plus some from Whittier, Lincoln, and Morningside joining us. We currently have about 400 students and 19 teachers. When all staff are in the building we have about 47 adults.”   Our school vision is: Live to Learn, Learn to Live.

Our Mission is: Our Giant Springs Elementary community is committed to lifelong learning. Academic, social, and emotional success is fostered through collaboration, consistency, and safety. Our community nurtures an atmosphere of respect in which students, parents, and staff are accepted and valued.     Website:

Jennifer Martyn, principal, ( tells us that “Mountain View Elementary is an open-concept school which creates an inclusive, family-like environment for our students and staff. Our mission statement states ‘students will become life-long learners as they think, act, care and learn in a safe and respectful environment.’  We serve 300 students and have 43 staff members.”
