GFR Gives Thanks to our Schools’ Frontline Workers: Morningside and Chief Joseph 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.

Kim DeFriesprincipal, ( states that “Morningside is a true neighborhood school that keeps us close as a community. Our enrollment is 265 students, K-6. We also have 43 fantastic staff members who work tirelessly to serve our students. Staff, students and families strive for their BEST work and to be their BEST selves!” 


Bobby Ingallsprincipal, ( informs us that Chief Joseph is a 300 student elementary school. We have 2 structured learning classes in addition to the 14 K-6 classrooms. Chief Joseph is a great school with a great staff and great families.  It is the hidden gem on the East side of Great Falls.
