Self-declare for the Hazel Wolf K-8 PTSA Executive Board Nominating Committee

The Hazel Wolf K-8 PTSA nominating committee plays an important role in identifying Hazel Wolf community members to serve in PTSA executive board roles as they open up. For the 2020-2021 school year, we anticipate the following executive board roles to fill: Co-President and VP of School Community.

You are encouraged to be a part of the important process by self-declaring your intent to serve on this important committee. Contact Adrienne Kortas at president@hazelwolfk8.org by Monday, January 20th to express your interest in serving as a nominating committee member or if you have any questions about the process.

At the January General Session Meeting on the 22nd, PTSA members will elect 2-3 people to serve on the nominating committee.


ELL Enrollment Night — Thurs. Feb. 6

English Language Learning (ELL) families face prohibitive barriers when it comes to enrolling their children in Option Schools like Hazel Wolf K-8. In the interest of creating equity within the enrollment process, we have created an event to help ELL families navigate the Option School enrollment process. Our goal is to provide equitable access to the program so that our demographics match the demographics of our geo-zone.

This year’s ELL Enrollment Night will take place on Thursday, February 6 from 5:30-7:30pm in the Hazel Wolf Library. Interpreters and admissions staff will be available to help ELL families register for the 2020-2021 school year and complete choice forms. Children are welcome.

Additionally, do you have relatives, neighbors, or friends that speak a language other than English who are interested in enrolling at Hazel Wolf? If you do, contact Rachel Projansky at raprojansky @seattleschools.org or 206-252-4610 (ext. 4623) with any information you have and the ELL Enrollment Team will reach out to you soon.

If you have questions about the ELL Enrollment Night event, please contact Kelly: operations@hazelwolfk8.org.

If you would like to volunteer to support the event, check out the volunteer sign up!
