Nov 14, 2022 Weekly Bulletin
Dear Families, this was a difficult week in our community. On Wednesday morning I met with staff, and we discussed how we were feeling after the Ingraham shooting the day before, and how we would address it with the students. At the younger grades we decided to only discuss it if it was brought up, and at the older grades we intentionally started the morning with 1st period community circles to allow students to talk about how they were feeling. At lunch on Friday, we had a poster for kids to write messages to the Ingraham community saying Hazel Wolf K-8 was holding them close to our heart. Thank you for helping your students through this time.
