  1. Welcome Breakfasts – On the first day of school (Sept 6), and the first day of Kindergarten (Sept 11), we will hold a short breakfast in the library to welcome you and share some information regarding getting involved with the PTSA and answer questions you might have.
  2. Afterschool options with the YMCA on-site at Hazel Wolf K-8Classes start Wednesday, Sept 6th! Please register asap!

    We’re pleased to be partnering with the YMCA for our afterschool enrichment needs! If you’re looking for care or for activities to keep your HW student engaged, check out the following options:

    Monthly enrichment pass – Perfect for all HW students who need/want afterschool care most every day! Students select from a variety of classes each session and coverage is provided until 5:45pm. All Wednesday early releases are covered.

    Individual classes are the way to go if you’re looking for activities just a few days/week. Class offerings for K-5 and 6-8 student groups, including some off-site classes with transportation there and back provided.

    K-5 class offerings include: Carpentry, Lego Engineers, Martial Arts, Yoga, basketball, field games, crafts, coding and Minecraft, Climbing wall and first aid at the Mountaineers (grades 3-5), ceramics, and more!

    6-8 class offerings include: Climbing wall at the Mountaineers, Minecraft at the Microsoft Store, Babysitting class, Girls self-defense, STEM, basketball and soccer, fine arts and more!

    Full-day care provided on no school days will be available at Hazel Wolf, too! More info to come soon!

    For more information about courses and registering, please see the HWK-8 PTSA blog post at:

    Notes: Online registration available until Sunday, 8/27 – paper, phone and email registrations continue after that deadline. Kindergarteners registered for classes MAY be delivered by parents to the cafetorium on Sept 6-8th, after school, even though they don’t have school those first 3 days.

  3. Open House/Orientation – Make sure you join us at the school on August 31st. The school will be open between 5:30 and 7:30 to explore! Pizza will be available if you don’t have time to grab dinner, class lists will be posted, and middle schools students can pick up their schedules and locker assignments. We will hold an orientation for K-5 families from 6:00 – 6:30, and MS from 6:45 – 7:15. This is a great time to meet new families and learn what is new this year!
  4. School Times – Everyone is on the same schedule this year. Drop off time is 8:35, first bell rings at 8:50, and school begins at 8:55. There is no supervision before 8:35, so please do not drop students off before that time. Each Wednesday (except the first day of school), is an early release day for staff professional development. Students will be released at 2:10 each Wednesday.
