Field Day Volunteers Needed – Hello families! Field Day is coming up on Wednesday, June 28th, and we need volunteers to help run stations and facilitate activities. In order to be able to do that, you need to be cleared as a volunteer ahead of time. The day before will not get you approved, and then we cannot use your help. Please start the process below to be cleared in time to help out. Elementary will be station based with classes rotating through together, instead of a free for all, which is different than years past. A volunteer sign up link will be coming soon! Thanks, and do not hesitate to email Ms. Sullivan for questions: rasullivan@seattleschools.org.

E-STEM MS Career Day – Call for presenters: We’ve had to reschedule career day and have room for more presenters. Career day will happen on Tuesday, June 27, 2023. Students will hear from professionals and academics working in STEM fields, many with an Environmental focus. If you work in a STEM field, please consider being a presenter. We need people who work with environmental topics or who engage in environmentally thoughtful practices in your chosen field. But the STEM field is key. Or if you know anyone who might be interested, please have them contact me. Presenters have two 45-minute sessions with about 18 students in each session. The time commitment would be from 8:45AM to about 11:10AM on Tues, June 27. Contact Joe Fogarty at jcbaileyfogart@seattleschools.org.

Book Bonanza Donations Needed – Call for books!  The Annual Book Swap (now called the Book Bonanza) will be June 21-23rd  in the Hazel Wolf Library.  Students will be able to select a few books to take home.  This is a great opportunity to swap out books your students may have out grown for newer titles.  Please bring your gently used books to the main office, we are accepting books from early readers and picture books through young adult novels and nonfiction.

Volunteer Opportunities

Join the Racial Equity Committee (REC) —Our goals are focused on helping students and families of color and those who are furthest from educational justice (intersectionality with race, ability, language, gender, socio-economic status, etc). We are open to all families joining and we prioritize Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) for the committee. 

With this help we can continue to support Student Affinity Groups, host listening sessions for BIPOC, work with PTSA and school staff to advocate for racial equity practices in our school, and more! To learn more or join the REC, email ptsa_rec@hazelwolfk8.org

Additional volunteer opportunities  Please see the full list of opportunities.

In most cases, you do not need to have your school volunteer paperwork completed to help out our school!  There are both big and small jobs, the important thing is to just get involved. Questions/ Comments? Please reach out to Christa Kleiner president@hazelwolfk8.org 206-335-2497 if you are interested in becoming involved and/or have any other ideas as to how to make our school and community great.
