Message from Dr. Breuder:

In reflection on this past week, I have been thinking about how we are preparing our students for their next educational pathway, and how we are looking at educating the whole child.  How are students leaving Hazel Wolf as citizens of our community and our world? The events of these past few weeks have left me thinking about how our students are learning about intent vs impact.  As an administrator, I talk with many students about behavioral decisions that have caused conflict and harm.  Many of my conversations with students include, “ But I didn’t mean it.”  While that might be true, those actions could have harmed someone else, despite a different intent.  It’s so important for our students to know that every action has a consequence, regardless of that consequence being negative of positive.  If my actions harm someone else, my intent does not change the harm that I caused.  Understanding the importance of intent vs impact is critical for our students to learn about empathy, compassion, and kindness.  While my actions might not have intended to hurt someone, the impact of my actions could be entirely different, and possibly harmful.  I believe elementary and middle school are important spaces for learning and reflecting.  Seeing and understanding different perspectives is critical for being able to understand how my actions have impacted someone else. 

Thank you for your continued partnership as we work together to educate and support our students at Hazel Wolf. 

The time for new students to register to attend Hazel Wolf for the 2024-2025 school year is coming up soon!  The window to submit a choice application for an Option School is February 1 through February 29.  We want to reach out and give a special welcome to families who may be new to the country and who speak languages other than English.   We need YOUR help.  Do you have relatives, neighbors, or friends that speak a language other than English who are interested in enrolling at Hazel Wolf?  If you do, contact Rachel Projansky at raprojansky@seattleschools.org with any information you have and the Multilingual Enrollment Team will reach out to you soon.
