    New Information

    1.  Girls Soccer Camp - This summer, the Ingraham girls soccer program will be again running two weeks of day camp (July 6th-10th and July 27th-31st).  The camp is reasonably priced ($100 per week) and is intended for elementary school aged recreational players. Flier is included at the end of the update.

    2.  Middle School Spanish – We wanted to clarify where we are in offering Spanish next year at Hazel Wolf K-8.  Previously, we were able to offer Span 1A in 7th grade, and Span 1B in 8th grade.  This provided 1 HS credit when students went to HS and passed the first year test.  With the new curriculum recently adopted, 8th graders will be able to take Span 1A 1st Semester, and 1B 2nd Semester.  This keeps the cost at a reasonable amount since we only need to offer one class so it will continue.

    We would like to hear your thoughts about Black Lives Matter Week at Hazel Wolf. Please take a few minutes to share your view:

    “White Women: How Can We Do Better Talking About Race and Racism?”

    A Workshop/Conversation from the Hazel Wolf PTSA Racial Equity Committee 

    Friday, March 6    6:30-8pm    Hazel Wolf School Library

     Contact:  Maureen McCauley at ptsa_rec@hazelwolfk8.org

    Why the focus on white women?

    Well, we are a significant part of the current dominant culture in the US. White women are well-represented in service professions such as nonprofits, education, social work, and nursing. We are in a good position to leverage those realities for anti-racist work. 

    That said, white women often struggle with the balance of being helpful and cooperative, and being able to speak out against racism, something with which we have no experience in any kind of daily and historic way. We may have grown up not thinking about race and not talking about race. We want to be good people, and may be afraid of making mistakes. Further, here in Seattle, we are surrounded by the reputation of a liberal, progressive culture. We have a great opportunity to be genuine accomplices in the work against racism. We welcome everyone to join us.

    What do white women know about racism? Why are white women talking about anti-racism?

    We white women are often not comfortable talking about race and racism, though we may have good intentions, and we want/need to do better. We are aware of the dangers of centering whiteness, and hope to find a balance in talking about race and taking actions that are anti-racist.

    An overall goal of the workshop is for white women to learn to talk, among other white people, about whiteness and racism, in a space that allows for thoughtful introspection and conversation. One important definition of racism is prejudice plus power, or a system of advantage and oppression based on race

    For example, I recognize that as a white person, I do not experience racism, though I may experience prejudice and surely experience sexism. I have white privilege. I recognize that black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOCs) experience racism in a personal and systemic way, historically entrenched over centuries, as well as through institutional racism and via daily micro aggressions.  We acknowledge that BIPOCs are the experts. We will provide resources that have been written and researched by BIPOCs. We are doing this work with the guidance of BIPOCs, and at their request, so that they do not have the added burden of educating white people about racism. The work can be uncomfortable and challenging, and we must do it now.

    Who will be speaking at this workshop?

    There will be 4 of us, all who self-identify as white women. Our professional backgrounds are in education and nonprofits. We all have children; one has grandchildren. One is part of an interracial family. We are all on Hazel Wolf’s Racial Equity Committee. We do not claim to have expertise: we are very much learning to be better allies and accomplices. We will share our own stories about how we are working to be better anti-racists, and how we are teaching our and learning from our children. We will share our mistakes, our stumbling, our lessons learned, and our suggestions for bringing about real and positive change. In alphabetical order, we are Kristen Cater, Zoe Leverson, Maureen McCauley, and Kelly McIntyre. Join us!
