Dear Hazel Wolf Families and Staff,
This school year, so much has changed, but we continue to maintain our commitment to enhancing the learning experience and well being for all of our children. Since we are unable to hold our annual auction, usually our largest fundraiser of the year, we are taking this opportunity to try something new– we are excited to announce the kick off of our first Direct Appeal campaign!
Our goal for this year’s Direct Appeal campaign is $40,000. Your contribution to this year’s Direct Appeal makes up 61% of all activities financed by the Hazel Wolf K-8 PTSA. This unusual academic year has narrowed the scope of our spending to these major areas of focus: School & Staff Grants, Family Support Programs, Tutoring, and Racial Equity & Inclusion.
We’ve created a 2021 Direct Appeal Guide to Participation which will explain more about WHY you should donate, WHAT your financial gift supports and HOW funding choices are made by the PTSA. We hope this guidance will help each family feel more informed as they consider making a donation to this year’s Direct Appeal campaign.
Also, all this week, we are bringing you videos of some familiar faces of staff and teachers. They will be sharing about the amazing work being done through the programs and activities supported by YOUR donations to the PTSA. The videos are posted on the PTSA blog and will be shared daily on the Friends of HW Facebook page.
We know this is a difficult year for many families, and we understand that each family has a different ability to donate. We appreciate all contributions. Regardless of how much you can give, our goal is 100 percent participation. Every donation counts. No amount is too small.
Donations can be made two ways: 1) by mail: checks payable to Hazel Wolf K-8 PTSA, 11530 12th Avenue NE, Seattle, WA 98125, and 2) online: hazelwolfk8.ejoinme.org/2021DirectAppeal
On behalf of the Hazel Wolf K-8 PTSA and our entire school community, we are so grateful you are part of the Wolfpack.
Marina Gray and Camille Mulchi
