    New Information
    1. End of Year Celebrations – Instead of our previous “Awards Ceremony”, we will be celebrating the end of the year for all of the students, and also include some awards, and some may also be given in the classroom at a different time.  If you would like to attend, it will be held the same day as field day.  June 20th 9:15 for K-4, and 10:00 for 5th-8th.  Field day follows with K-2 from 10:00 – 11:30, 3-5 from 12:30 – 2:00 and MS from 12:00 – 2:00 at the Pinehurst playfield.  We are still looking for volunteers to help with field day!

    2. Hazel Wolf Middle School Girls’ Self Defense Workshop - June 11, 2018, 3:30-5:30 at Hazel Wolf K-8.  Please reply with interest by Thursday, May 31st to linmurdock@gmail.com.

    One of our HW parents teaches self defense professionally and would love to offer our middle school students who identify as girls on non-binary (grades 6-8) a 2 hour self defense program before we move into summer, since students will likely be out and about on their own more over the coming months.  Scholarships will be available for those who need them.
    Instructor: Allyson Riley, allyson@sevenstarwomenskungfu.com

    Organization: WAVE: Women Against Violence Everywhere
    https://thewavefoundation.org/discover-your-power/
    Our Discover Your Power program is committed to empowering young people through training in relationship violence education, sexual assault awareness and self-defense.  Our curriculum is designed to reach a wide range of ages and abilities, and you can find us building impactful relationships in schools throughout the Puget Sound region. Our self-defense programs, designed for the specific needs of each age group, focus on the empowerment model and include skills in boundary setting, assertive communication, confidence building, and intuition honing.  Our college-level programs focus on the themes of social norms, consent, and bystander intervention.
    This year Allyson has taught this curriculum already at JAMS, Madrona K-8, Madison MS, and others.
    Cost: we are requesting $25/student but are also asking families to consider sponsoring a student who might not be able to pay.
    This workshop would be for the students only, not parents at this time.
    If your student is interested and available on June 11th afterschool, please let us know by emailing Lin Murdock at linmurdock@gmail.com and we’ll put you on the list.  Please let us know if you can pay the $25, are willing to sponsor another student, or whether your student would need a scholarship to attend.  We hope to be able to accommodate all scholarship requests through your assistance. 
    We’ll need at least 12 girls to run the event and spaces will be limited based upon the location we can secure to offer the workshop.  Also, it is happening the same afternoon as one of the archery club sessions, but there are also lunch time archery sessions offered, so we’re hoping that will work for students who want to do both.  We’ll make the decision about whether we have enough students to run the course on June 1st.  After that date, if we have enough interest, we’ll set up a registration system, so no money required now.
    Please contact Allyson if you have questions about the curriculum and Lin if questions about registering or paying.  Thanks and hope this works for some of your girls!

    Reminders
    1. Talent Show - Talent Show auditions are June 4th and 5th from 3:30 until we're done (no later than 6 p.m.)  We have almost 60 acts signed up!  Students took packets which have a contract on the first page.  It's a signature page that both families and students need to sign and return to Ms. Burnett by the first day of auditions.  It's information about how the talent show works.  Please remind your students to turn in this form.  Also, if anyone needs help with their act for auditions, please see Ms. Burnett and she will do all she can to help.  Can't wait to see all the wonderful talent from our HW students!  Any questions?  You can email teburnett@seattleschools.org.

    2. Suicide Prevention Informational Night - Please join other Hazel Wolf families and community members on the evening of Tuesday, May 29th 6:30-8:30 pm for a conversation about how to help others move in the direction of hope, recovery, and survival.  Many of us have confided in others during dark times, and vice versa. But it can feel awkward, if not downright frightening, not knowing what to do when a loved one or a peer shows suicide warning signs. Developed by Forefront Suicide Prevention.  LEARN™ is an intervention framework that integrates information on what to look for around suicide prevention, how to ask the question and the safe storage of lethal means – and removes the dangers when someone is at-risk for suicide.   Child care, and interpretation services for Amharic, Oromo, Arabic, and Tigrigna speaking families and community members will be provided.  Feel free to bring your dinner with you and eat in the lunchroom from 6:00 – 6:30.
     
    3. Annual Hazel Wolf Book Giveaway - This will be held the last week of school this year - June 18-20 (set up on Friday June 15thafter school).  This is a fun event when students will have the opportunity to visit the book giveaway with their classroom (and on their own time) to pick out one (or more) age-appropriate books to bring home for summer reading.
    We need your previously-loved BOOKS!  Please drop them in the BOX located in the school office LOBBY.  We also need VOLUNTEERS who want to help give away books to kids!  Sign up here: http://signup.com/go/dUgNHnE
    Questions? Please contact Kristin Gilda kthorness@msn.com

    4. 7th Grade Poetry Slam - Will take place on May 30th in the Hazel Wolf Cafetorium at 7:00 p.m.!  Friends and families of 7th grade students, please join us as we share dessert and spoken word poetry.  This year’s poetic theme is: Empowerment.

    5. Middle School Dance - The final “dance” for the middle school this year will be so, so much more!  The ASB is planning a “Back Yard Blast” on June 8th, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.!  In addition to the usual dance in the Cafetorium (featuring DJ Remixz), backyard games, such as cornhole and Giant Jenga will be offered in the Courtyard area.  Tickets to this dance will cost the same as all other dances, but 3 tickets to see Logic and NF at the White River Amphitheatre have been donated to the ASB.  Any student who attends the Back Yard Blast will be entered in a drawing to win those tickets.

    ASB is also interested in other, smaller prizes that could be raffled at the Back Yard Blast.  Have something to donate?  Contact Katrina Riippa. Also, parent volunteers are needed to supervise outdoor games at this event.  If you are interested in volunteering and/or have outdoor games to share for one evening, please contact Katrina Riippa (kcriippa@seattleschools.org).

    6. Elementary Field Day Lead Needed – We are looking for a parent to help with Elementary field day. The job will include working with school staff to coordinate and oversee the events on June 20th 9:30 am – 2:30 pm. Please contact Christa Kleiner at studentextensions@hazelwolfk8.org if you can help.

    7. 4th – 5th Grade Concert - The end of year Spring Concert featuring our 4th and 5th Graders will be on Thursday, May 31st at the Hazel Wolf Cafetorium starting at 7 p.m.  Students are asked to be here by 6:45 p.m. for warm-ups (or earlier if they are also in Mr. Stevens’ Band or Orchestra.)  This concert is required for all students.  We would like students to wear “dress up” clothes, so no jeans with holes, shorts, or sports clothes.  PLEASE NOTE:  5th graders who are not in Mr. Stevens’ band or orchestra do not have to attend this concert, but we’d love you to come be an audience member.  See you there!
