New Information

  1. Transportation – By now you should have received the letter from transportation stating that due to the driver shortage and the need to prioritize Title 1 and students FFEJ (furthest from educational justice), our general education students will unfortunately be losing bus service for at least 3-4 months. This is beginning on Monday, October 18th. We know this presents a sudden and significant hardship for our families. Together with PTSA we are working on how we can best support families.
    We need volunteers for these three jobs:
    1. Parents/guardians who can drive carpools
    2. Parents/guardians who can walk with kids to school
    3. Parents/guardians who can work as crossing guards and traffic control near school
      If you can volunteer to help in any of these ways, please complete this Form
  2. Ski Bus – If you want to hear about ski bus options for elementary and middle school, please attend the following Zoom mtg on Oct 21st, 5:00 – 6:00 pm
    Zoom Meeting I.D.: 367 451 4575
    Passcode: tLm4MM (case sensitive)
    This session will be recorded and available for viewing, after the fact, if anyone is unavailable for this meeting.
  3. Curriculum Night – Just like everything else this year, Curriculum Night will look a little bit different than usual. Middle school staff will be pre-recording information about each of their classes so you can watch them at your convenience. Elementary classes will be on a Teams Mtg. at the times listed above. This will be a 30 minute opportunity to hear from your grade level team about all the amazing things your child(ren) will experience this year!
  4. Global Reading Challenge!!! It’s time to start thinking about this year’s Global Reading Challenge. GRC is a partnership of Seattle Public Schools and the Seattle Public Library where groups of 4th and 5th grade students read selected titles, meet weekly to talk about those books and then compete in a trivia challenge first with other teams at their school and finally against other school teams. Seattle Public Library is the generous sponsor of this event with prizes, author visits, and all around fun centered on reading great books.

    Dr. V, the Hazel Wolf Librarian, will be talking to the 4th and 5th grade classes about this exciting opportunity in the coming weeks. The big REVEAL of the GRC book list will occur November 1st at Hazel Wolf and on the Hazel Wolf Library FaceBook page. Dr. V will be distributing sign up forms to classes. Families with questions can email Dr. V at: elvaldez@seattleschools.org.
  1. Hall of Fame Team Camp After School Enrichment

    Check out the flier in Kid Mail.
  2. Join the PTSA! This does NOT commit you to attending meetings or volunteering– it just shows that you support the activities we provide for our students! Our goal is to have at least one family member join the PTSA for each student, so we can continue to align our budget and initiatives to our community’s needs.
    Join Now!
    If you would like to be a PTSA member but the dues are a hardship, we do offer scholarships, and all of our activities are open to our entire community. You never need to be a member to participate or volunteer. If you are interested in a PTSA scholarship, please contact president@hazelwolfk8.org.
  3. Dine Out Fundraiser with Don Lucho’s Restaurant — Plan ahead to enjoy a Peruvian feast Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, October 26-28. More details to come!

Reminders

  1. Coat Drive — Each year, we host a coat drive to make sure all Hazel Wolf students have a new winter coat. To sponsor a student(s), please make a donation to the Hazel Wolf COVID fund, which will be used to fund coat requests. When making your donation, consider that the average coat is $50. You can donate to the coat drive between October 15th and December 15th.
  2. Any funds remaining after meeting all coat requests will be used for Family Support programs. Thank you to our generous Hazel Wolf community for your ongoing support, particularly in light of changes necessitated by COVID limitations.

    Hazel Wolf families that want to sign up to receive a coat, can fill out this form:

  1. Calling all Wolfpack Artists! – This year’s Reflections Art Contest theme is, “I Will Change the World By…” Students can submit artwork in six categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts (2D or 3D).
