Dear Hazel Wolf Family,
Hazel Wolf K-8 is a vibrant and resilient learning community that supports and cultivates family engagement. The PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association) is here to help facilitate that engagement and to serve and uplift our school community in many different ways.
We provide financial support to the school – Every teacher receives a PTSA classroom grant to support their teaching. With the new landscape of remote learning—and the extra creativity it requires—this grant is more important than ever. Also we nearly doubled the funds (from $12,000 to $22,500) dedicated to our tutors this year for both elementary and middle school. We know how challenging this year is, and we want all students to have every opportunity available to succeed.
We support families in need – In this challenging year of living through a global pandemic, programs like our annual coat drive, food pantry and our food and household supply drives, are even more essential than they’ve been in the past. In addition, we’ve created a CARES (Community Assistance Response) Team to help identify and provide financial aid to families with specific school-related needs.
We build community – One way we are building community and connection while we are apart is through virtual parent education forums. Topics have ranged from presentations from our School Board Directors, Online Safety, Coping During Remote Learning and Racial Equity. We have also established Parent Wolf Packs, as well as the new Family Engagement and Action Team, to help nurture and facilitate community building. In addition, we are continuing our commitment to partnering with neighboring schools and increasing racial equity in cooperation with the Racial Equity Committee and the school.
These important programs that support our children and school community rely on donations from our families. Please consider making a year-end gift today.
In light of our current situation, direct donations will serve as the majority of our fundraising budget for this school year due to the inability to hold our regular annual auction. Please give what is meaningful to you and your family at this time– this might be a one-time year-end gift or a recurring monthly gift. We are grateful for your generosity in supporting our community and your child’s education through this historic time. We are all stronger together.
