All School Announcements

Message from Dr. Breuder:

We had another busy week at Hazel Wolf K-8! It’s been great to see all of the activity and learning that is happening across our school.  I am part of a Principal Learning Network (PLN) of other principals in the NE Region, so I spent the morning last Thursday with principals from Jane Addams Middle School, TOPS, Roosevelt, and Nathan Hale.  This is an opportunity for us to collaborate, learn from one another, and align practice across schools.  This week, Mr. Winston (Assistant Principal) will represent Hazel Wolf at the elementary PLN in the NE Region, so he will meet with the principals from Cedar Park, Thornton Creek, Decatur, John Rogers, Wedgewood, and Sacajawea.   

  • Mt. Rainier Institute (MRI): The 6th-graders went to Mt. Rainier Institute for four days, and despite the rainy conditions, came back with smiles on their faces and plenty of stories to tell!
  • Third-grade teacher: Please help us welcome Mr. Michael Ogburn, 3rd-grade teacher new to Room 205.  Mr. Ogburn is taking over from guest teacher, Ms. Lowenborg, who has taken another position in the Edmonds School District.  Welcome to Hazel Wolf, Mr. Ogburn!
  • Assemblies: Over the next two weeks, we will have assemblies for our grade-level bands (K-2, 3-5, 6-8), which will focus on continuing our PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports), as well as a celebration of Indigenous People’s Day, which was October 9th. 
  • Associated Student Body (ASB) Council: We are pleased to announce our ASB Executive Council members! We will have our first ASB Executive Council meeting this week.  We are looking forward to working with this group of student leaders!

“The Musical Note” – from Ms. Allenton

Hello families! I wanted to share an opportunity for kids in 1st grade-4 grade  who love to sing and dance. This year, our school spring musical will be Honk! Jr., which is the story of the Ugly Duckling. In order to most effectively tell our story and to invite more members of our learning community, we will host auditions for the duckling siblings beginning this fall. 

Audition requirements:

  • Email a 1 minute video of your child singing to a karaoke/instrumental track to me at cdallenton@seattleschools.org
  • Deadline for initial video is October 15th.
  • Must be 4’5″ or under in height.
  • Be available for a callback dance and song follow up audition in November.
  • Be available for rehearsals after school from April to June. 1x week or less at first. Nearly every day just before performances. Weekend for shows. 
  • Understand that we can cast only 4 ducklings. Not everyone who auditions will be cast in the show. Auditioning can be a great learning experience for kids and families that helps develop resilience and empathy. 

Email Ms. Allenton if you have questions or need clarification. cdallenton@seattleschools.org

  • Sunday, December 3rd: Barnes and Noble Fundraiser. Show Choir sings at 3:30 and 4:30. More details to come including our fundraising voucher code. Proceeds support building our general music library and the drama department.

Plus, any and all snow gear – skis, snowboards, boots, poles, snowshoes, bring it all!
