These groups will take place once every other week during Pack time. The affinity group is meant to be a space where students of the global majority can come together to build community, learn how to collaborate, and celebrate their identities. Students will have an opportunity to sign up during class next week, but if you have any questions please email them to Mr. J (email@example.com) or Susanna Waldrop (firstname.lastname@example.org)
4.ORCA Card for MS and HS Students – In case you didn’t know, transit is free for Middle and High School students through June 30, 2023. Riders aged 13 and older are encouraged to show one of the following to the driver if they have it:
- Youth ORCA Card
- Please “tap” your card when you board. On Sound Transit light rail, please also “tap” when you exit. If you kept the Youth ORCA card issued by your school during the 2021-22 academic year, it will continue to work through June 30, 2023.
- Current High School or Middle School Student ID
- Youth who do not have one of these can still ride for free.
In 2023 and beyond, youth will be directed to get a Free Youth Transit Pass that allows them to tap a card—or eventually their smartphone—to access transit across the region for free.
5.Staff appreciation lunch: Please use the sign-up for the lunch on September 28th! We are looking for people to bring in soup, salad, pasta salad, bread, drinks, and dessert. Food should be brought in by 11AM on the 28th.
6.First ever Hazel Wolf Ski Swap on November 5th. More details to come! This event, in addition to being a ‘ski swap’ will also be a great event for getting winter clothes, hats, and gloves for everyone! Funds raised will be used to support tutors, outdoor learning, field trips and more.
Scouting opportunities for middle school girls: If interested please check out Troop 681 located in North Seattle. Learn more visit Troop 681
1.Lunch Updates – Yes, everyone is eating inside this year. There is no recommendation from the CCC or central office to eat outside at this time. This year lunch is not subsidized from the government so there is a charge. We encourage everyone to submit a free lunch application, even if you plan to send lunch with your child. If you qualify, it provides additional resources to the building whether you take advantage of the breakfast/lunch options or not. The costs at a K-8 this year are $2.25 for breakfast, $3.25 for lunch, and .50 cents if you buy milk separately.

2.K-5 Supply Donation – K-5 requested donation This is a requested donation to cover the cost of basic materials your children will use in class. We do this to make sure all students have access to the same types of materials, and because students use shared tubs of materials vs their own.
