    3. Head Lice - We have seen a rise in students coming to school or at school with lice, so please check your student’s scalp thoroughly to see if he or she has lice or nits. If he or she has lice or nits, please copy and paste this link into your web browser:  https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/lice/index.html

    This website provides information about symptoms, treatment options, and prevention.
    Please contact me at 206-252-4617 or smjonas@seattleschools.org if you have additional questions or concerns.  Thank you,  Nurse Jonas

    4. 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.

    Reminders
    5. 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.
     
    6. Annual Hazel Wolf Book Giveaway -  We’re gearing up for our end-of-year Used Book Giveaway, which will be held the last week of school June 18-20 (set-up on June 15).  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 an age-appropriate book (or a few) to bring home for summer reading.

    To make it all happen, we need BOOKS!  Please bring in your children’s previously-loved books (or ask at your favorite local thrift shop for a donation) and drop them into the BOX located in the school office LOBBY.  What better way to start your spring cleaning?! More info on VOLUNTEERING for this fun event in the weeks to come! If you have any questions, need help with a book pick-up or want to volunteer, please contact Kristin Gilda, kthorness@msn.com

    7. 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.

    8. 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).

    9. 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!
