  • Welcome, Ms. Scholle!

    Posted by Robin Nygren on 10/12/2019

    Ms. Scholle

    Hello! My name is Katelyn Scholle and I am the new school counselor at here at Rattlesnake. I am excited to get to know the Rattlesnake community and the students, teachers, and families that make up this great school! I grew up in Seattle, Washington and moved to Missoula in 2012 to attend the University of Montana (Go Griz!) I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and then went back to finish my Master of Arts in School Counseling in 2018. I have worked in a variety of settings such as youth case management, foster care and adoption, and previously worked at Stevensville Public Schools as well as Clark Fork School.  When I am not at school I like to spend time with my dog Rosie, hike one of our beautiful Montana mountains, or try to improve my cooking skills. 
     
    I can help students and families with a variety of topics including: social-emotional problems at home and at school, friendships, academics, emotional regulation, feelings, coping skills, good news, and even a quick hello! I meet with students individually, provide classroom lessons, and run a variety of small groups based on need. 
     
    If you are concerned about your kid, want to connect, or need additional support, please reach out via phone, email, or I'd be happy to set up a meeting with you! My contact info is below. 
     
    (406) 728-2400 EXT 4710
     
    Thank you, and I look forward to getting to know you all

    Halloween 

    Student Artwork

    We look forward to having a fun day on Halloween! Here are our guidelines and expectations for that school day:

    • Costumes must conform to the Rattlesnake School Dress Code.
    • Costumes may not be demeaning to any ethnic group, race, religion, nationality, disabilities, gender, or individual (staff or student) at the school.
    • Costumes may not cause a disruption or distraction to the school program.
    • No weapons, toy weapons, or props replicating weapons (sorry no light sabers either!) are to be brought to school.
    • No costumes are allowed that would completely hide the identity of the student, i.e. Hazmat suit, gorilla suit, "Scream" character. Face paint shouldn’t cover more than 50% of the face (again we want to know who you are).
    •  No full face masks are permitted (they may not be worn OR carried)

    Classroom Celebration Food Guidelines

    This school year, our District is focusing on consistent approaches to student health through the foods that are served during classroom parties and school celebrations. Here are some healthy suggestions for those classes who are including food in their Halloween celebrations. Rattlesnake classes will not be serving refined sugar treats on Halloween. Please pay attention to and follow any food allergy guidelines for your student's classroom in order to keep all students safe.  

    • fresh fruit (grapes, oranges, apples, & strawberries, etc) 
    • fruit kabobs 
    • yogurt parfaits 
    • veggies & dip 
    • cheese cubes & baked crackers 
    • turkey rolls with cream cheese 
    • chex mix (homemade with no nuts)
    • popcorn 
    • finger sandwiches (no peanut butter)

    After School Pick-Up

    Rattlesnake School

    Please be on time to pick up your students. Grades K-3 are dismissed at 3pm (2pm on Thursdays). Grades 4-5 are dismissed at 3:30pm (2:30pm on Thursdays). We do not have staff to watch students between dismissal times.

    Thank you!
