All School Announcements

Message from Dr. Breuder:

This last week was another busy one, including field trips, assemblies, so much learning in classrooms, affinity groups, club meetings, and more! Everywhere I turn there is excitement and enthusiasm every day at Hazel Wolf. 

As we close out October, this week we will see many Fall/Harvest celebrations in classrooms across the school.  Please note that any food for these celebrations needs to be store-bought and packaged (no homemade items).  This is due to safety reasons for our students. 

This last week we wrapped up our last Indigenous Peoples’ Day assembly with the middle schoolers.  Students heard from a local storyteller, Roger Fernandes, of the Kellum and Makah Nations.  Story, called Pushing Up the Sky. Thank you to our ASB Council members for leading all of these assemblies with our students.
