If you have a current 6th grader please consider volunteering for this important role to ensure all 6th grade parents stay informed. Contact Emily Wray at homeroomrep@hazelwolfk8.org if you would like more information.

9. Donations and Support for our ELL Craft and Game night – Our ELL Support Team and PTSA are hosting a game night for our ELL students and families. To make this event successful we need the following support:

  • Donations of gently-used, fun-for-all-ages board games and activity sets (snap circuits, Goldie Blocks, etc.), and children’s books. You may place donated items in the box in the office.
  • Donations of craft supplies including fun stickers, adhesive gems, washi tape, cool duct tape, or colorful sharpies. Anything that will look good on wood but doesn’t make a big mess or take long to dry. These can also be brought to the office.
  • Volunteers to help on the evening of 10/19. We need help serving food, organizing crafts, and playing games. Contact Kelly McIntyre at operations@hazelwolfk8.org.
