• Welcome to Kindergarten! I am so glad you're here.

    Kindergarten is a time of exploration, new friends, new skills, and amazing growth!  I am so excited to be sharing this year with your kindergarteners.  Thank you for sharing your children with our amazing team at Chief Charlo.  

    Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns.  I want to make sure your child's needs are being met, and that their transition to elementary school is as seamless and joyful as possible.  My goal is to make school a place they are eager to go to and bubbling with excitement when they leave.  

    The easiest way to contact me is by email: jkrause@mcpsmt.org.  I will try to respond within 36 hours of receiving your email.

    You can also call the office at (406) 542-4005

    My room phone is 728-2400 x 4951.  I will not answer calls during the school day, so please call the office if you need to get information to me quickly.  

    Here's to a great year in Kinder K!
