FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK

With April now behind us, the students and staff of Mt. Hall Elementary are gearing up for our final stretch of the school year. It always amazes me at how fast May goes. Please make sure to check your child’s take-home folders for important field trip and end of the year information. Also, if you are on Bloomz, please be checking Bloomz or our website often. As the weather starts to warm up, make sure to send your child in layers. Students are typically in sweaters at morning recess and bare sleeves come afternoon recess. Also, please send your child with a water bottle to keep them hydrated throughout the day. Thank you all for your support throughout the year. Mt. Hall is a truly special school, and I’m so blessed to be the principal of such wonderful students, dedicated staff, and supportive parents. Until next month, Go Wildcats!

If you have ever had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Angie Schnuerle, you might be shocked to discover that she has been teaching for 22 years. I say shocked because Ms. Schnuerle does not look like she’s been teaching for 22 years. Her contagious laugh, passion for education, and love for her students keeps her young in the eyes of those her know her.

Ms. Schnuerle took a big leap of faith when she graduated college from LCSC and attended a job fair in the great state of Alaska. She left the fair and came back to Idaho. A couple of months later she was offered a teaching position to teach in a small rural village that was only accessible by plane. Ms. Schnuerle jumped at the opportunity, and she lived and taught in Alaska for 12 years. Being close to her family, Ms. Schuerle was considering moving back down to the lower 48. When she was visiting one summer, she saw that her alma mater, Mt. Hall Elementary was hiring a kindergarten teacher. Having never taught kindergarten, Ms. Schnuerle took another leap of faith and accepted the job of kindergarten teacher. Ms. Schnuerle taught kindergarten for nine years, and in that time she helped shape the minds of almost 200 little Wildcats. From my experience working with Ms. Schnuerle, I know that once you are a student in Ms. Schnuerle’s class you will always be considered one of her kids. Every morning Ms. Schnuerle stands at the front entrance of Mt. Hall, and she greets each and every student with a smile, a hug, and a good morning. In Ms. Schnuerle’s words, “It’s a lovely way to start the day.”

Last year, Ms. Schnuerle was up for another challenge, and she and another teacher approached me about switching grade levels. Ms. Schnuerle suddenly became the new 4th grade teacher at Mt. Hall. This past year has been fun to watch Ms. Schnuerle in a new role. She has had this class before as kindergarteners, and now instead of teaching them to count and read, she’s teaching them to engage with their texts and take academic risks. One skill that Ms. Schnuerle taught in kindergarten that she is still teaching in 4th grade is the importance of being kind. With the help of a generous annoymous donor, the class recently spearheaded a kindness project. Every student has a special shirt that says, “In a world where you can be anything, be kind!” Whenever a student wears their shirt, they draw a kindness challenge from a jar, and their task that day is to complete it. This social experiment has been infectious and has brought a lot of happiness to our school.

Outside of the classroom, Ms. Schnuerle holds various leadership positions. She leads our school in the RTI process, as well as organizes Dr. Suess Day every year. She is a mentor to new teachers, and she is always looking for ways to improve our district. Outside of school, Ms. Schnuerle enjoys spending time with her family, especially her nieces and nephews, and her beloved puppy. It’s such a distinct pleasure to know and work with the lovely Angie Schnuerle. She makes Mt. Hall Elementary and Boundary County School District a great place to learn, play, and grow! Go Ms. Schnuerle, and Go Wildcats!

Dear Parents,

BCSD #101 Food Service has just closed a review from the Idaho State Department. Unfortunately, as of January 8th, 2017 all schools except Valley View Elementary will no longer be participating in the Provision II Breakfast Program. Valley View is on a different base year and still qualifies to participate in the Provision II meal program. BCSD #101 will have to apply for an extension at the end of 2017-18.

How will this affect you? When we come back from Christmas break, students will no longer receive free breakfast or breakfast in the class room. We will go back to standard operating procedure.. Breakfast will be served in the lunch room. If your child eats breakfast, they will be charged the same meal status as lunch.

Breakfast will be served from 7:30 a.m. -7:55 a.m. at the Middle School and 7:15 a.m. -7:50 a.m. at the High School. All Elementary schools breakfast times will remain the same. Students will have to pay for breakfast at the free, reduced or paid status they have at lunch.  Breakfast schedules and prices are as follows:

Middle School                                                                

Reduced .30 a day                                           

Paid is $1.75 a day


High School

Peanut Allergy Update

Thank you for helping us keep all our students safe and healthy.  Most of you know that we have a student this year that has a peanut allergy.  With the help of the school nurse and the student’s mom we have come up with a plan that will allow other students to still eat peanut products while at the same time safeguarding the health of our new student.  Some of the precautions we are taking are:

¨ Designating a peanut-free area in our lunchroom. 

¨ Asking all parents to let their children know if they have packed any food items that have peanuts in them (granola bars, cookies, sandwiches, etc.) so they know not to sit at the peanut-free table.

¨ Being sure to thoroughly wash our hands after eating any peanut products.
