New Information

1. Multicultural Night – Thank YOU so much to our amazing Hazel Wolf community for showing up to Multicultural Night, our 1st in person event since the pandemic!!

We had food from every continent in the world. Families also brought drinks, cultural clothing, and information boards about where their families are from.

For new families to Hazel Wolf, this was their 1st time coming to the building.

We also want to thank the many middle schoolers who helped to plan, set up, and do many jobs at this event-particularly to Ms. Alston’s Cultural Identify and Society class. Thank you to the many family volunteers, our parent Racial Equity Committee, and our PTSA.

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.
