Please read the blurb below to learn more about the project. If you would like to submit a video, please complete the form below and then email video submissions to wolfpackspotlight@gmail.com.  We hope to create and share our first compilation with the Hazel Wolf Community before the end of the year that features 2-3 student video submissions. Additional video submissions will be used next school year.

Here are some ideas of what the video could be:

  • What is a family dinner like at your house?
  • What is a tradition that is important to your family? How does it work?
  • What is something special that you do in your community?
  • What is a food that is that is traditional to your family?

More about the Wolf Pack Spotlight: This is a new way we can connect and spotlight members of our community. Students and their family create short videos (1-3 mins. max) sharing something that is important to them (traditions, food, games, holidays, family stories, etc.). A few students’ video clips will be combined to create a video that will be shared in class and with our community. This will help us learn about and celebrate our school community. We aim to create these each month during the school year. Please email wolfpackspotlight@gmail.com with any questions.

6.Laptop & Ipad Returns – Families please send laptops and iPads (if you have them) to school with your students this week (and next week) as they will need them for state testing, please also send wired headphones/earbuds if you have them.  Blue tooth headphones or airpods will not work with the testing software. 

Dr. V will be collecting iPads (grades K-2) and laptops (grades 3-5) this week as they will only be used in class for the rest of the year.  If you still have an iPad, laptop, OR library book at home, please send them with your student as we are starting to inventory both devices and library books.

Dr. V will be sending emails listing the books that are still checked out to your student(s).  It’s important to get an accurate inventory so she knows which books to replace and budget for in the coming year.  This is a great opportunity to do some spring cleaning and find those pesky books hiding under beds, on bookshelves, in old backpacks, etc.!
