Glacier Gateway's Mission

Our School

At Glacier Gateway, we are committed to creating a rich, welcoming, and safe environment that promotes student growth. We share information about our programs, student activities, and student achievements throughout the pages of this web site. We invite you to stop by Glacier Gateway for a visit.

Glacier Gateway is located just north of Highway 2 on 4th Ave. West in Columbia Falls, Montana. You can find us by turning north at the second of four stop lights on Highway 2 in Columbia Falls as you drive west through town. We are located in a long brick building housing about 450 students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade.

Our mission is to provide a quality education through shared responsibility in a safe supportive environment for all students to meet the challenges of a global society.

What's Happening?

------------------------------------------------------

Parents and Staff,

As you are aware, the Governor of Montana has closed all schools through April 10th . Therefore, on Monday, March 30th from 9am to 6:30 pm and Tuesday, March 31st from 7am- 5pm we will be organizing an essential educational materials and Chromebook pickup for Glacier Gateway students in an effort to provide at home/online learning. This will be organized as a curbside pickup only. Please pull up to the designated pickup location at the main entrance of Glacier Gateway and remain in your vehicle. We will have a staff member come to your car, please have your child’s name and homeroom teacher ready to present. At that point, we will retrieve the necessary items your student’s teacher left for them. Please understand that under the circumstances no parents or students will be allowed in the building or out of your vehicle.

Thank you for all you are doing during these difficult times. If we can be of further assistance to your family, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher, call the office during office hours or leave a message at the school office.

Ok, Time for the Joke of the Day

What did the flower say after it told a joke?
I was just pollen your leg.

A Did Ya Know Fact for the day!
a moth has no stomach

Our Daily Wisdom is from John Wooden, “If you're not making mistakes, then you're not doing anything. I'm positive that a doer makes mistakes.”
