GFR Gives Thanks to our Schools’ Frontline Workers: Loy and Longfellow Elementary Schools

***Every week since February, Great Falls Rising has sent out a message honoring two public schools in Great Falls for their dedication and concern for our students and community during this horrific pandemic. Today we send our last, and our gratitude for the work that has been done continues. We hope you have enjoyed reading about our terrific public schools that presently serve over 10,000 students.
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 Rayprincipal, ( states that Loy Elementary, with a high percentage of students of military families associated with Malmstrom Air Force Base, is a special place for these children who have moved several times and bring their varied experiences to Loy to help create an atmosphere of cultural diversity and cultural awareness. The students and staff are very welcoming and work hard to make everyone feel accepted in the school climate. Loy Elementary received the Military Purple Star Recognition, State School of Character recognition, and the National School of Character recognition, all in 2020.
Shannon Guilfoyleprincipal, ( emphasizes that Longfellow Elementary is the home of the Lynx! “We are a fun-loving group of educators in a brand-new school (THANK YOU GREAT FALLS!) packed with students who are bursting with potential everyday – all day! Come learn with us!”
