New Information

1. MS Basketball – All basketball paperwork is due Wednesday, November 29th. Packets were handed out at the student information meeting or can be found on the Hazel Wolf website.

2. Auditions for School Musical are December 11th and 12th with Call-backs on December 14th. Audition/Crew information and sign-ups are now posted outside of Ms. Burnett’s room (112). Actors must come to one audition day and be available for call-backs. Rehearsals start right when we get back from Winter Break! If you want to be an actor/singer in the play, then you have to be available for all rehearsals you are called for (usually M/T/R with some Friday’s closer to opening the show.) If you are interested in being on crew, you can do other activities as you will not be at as many rehearsals as the actors. There will be an informational meeting on January 9th from 3:30-4:15 p.m. for all students interested in crew. Hope to see you all there for auditions or crew!! If you have any questions, please email Ms. Burnett at

3. Attention all 3rd and 5th grade families! This is a reminder of our upcoming Winter Concert on Tuesday, December 5th, at 7 p.m. in the Hazel Wolf Cafeteria. This is a required performance for all 3rd and 5thgraders. It’s our chance to show off our learning and share our music for the first trimester! Students need to be at Hazel Wolf by 6:40 p.m. for warm-ups. Families can grab seating while we warm-up. This is a dress up occasion. Please, no shorts or sweats. If your students do not have a dress up outfit, then they can wear a Hazel Wolf t-shirt instead. We hope you can all join us for the fun night of music! Any questions, feel free to email Ms. Burnett at
