Use AmazonSmile for Your Online Shopping

Don’t forget that through AmazonSmile, your purchases can automatically support Hazel Wolf K-8. The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of every purchase to our PTSA!

When you first sign up for AmazonSmile at, you will be given an opportunity to choose your charity. Type in “Hazel Wolf” and select “Hazel Wolf PTSA Unit 6.15.24” (don’t be confused by the location listing of Tacoma, WA, this is the correct choice).

If you already have an AmazonSmile account and would like to change your charity, go to “Your Account & Lists” in the top menu on the front page of Amazon. Then select “Your AmazonSmile.” Then click the button “Change charity” on the right side of the page.

Spirit Gear Swap

Hazel Wolf students and families have the opportunity to visit the Spirit Gear Swap bin to choose a previously loved (but still in good condition) Hazel Wolf clothing item. We want all students to be able to proudly rock their Hazel Wolf gear! The bin is located in the front office. There are many items in smaller and larger sizes.

Do you have any previously loved Hazel Wolf Spirit Gear? Please donate any clean and still in good condition Hazel Wolf clothing items in the box located in the school office lobby. We will collect any Hazel Wolf Spirit Gear that your child has outgrown and/or no longer wears. Thank you!

Ten more donors needed for Coat Drive

Our Coat Drive is coming to a close, but we are still in need of at least TEN more coat donors to help TEN more students who are in need of a warm coat this winter. Would you consider supporting our community and volunteering to make a donation?

Just email and you’ll be sent a coat request. To make coat shopping easy, you will be provided with size, color preference and gender information.

Turn in your Box Tops by Nov. 1

Did you know that Hazel Wolf receives 10 cents for every valid Box Top for Education that we submit? Last year we made over $400 from families, friends, and staff who clipped them and dropped them off in the front office.

Not sure what to do? Look for Box Tops on everything from granola bars to plastic bags. You can find a list of products here. Clip and collect the unexpired Box Tops in a baggie or envelope and place them in the collection box in the front office. Easy!

Our first submission deadline is Friday, November 1st, but please turn in clips to the front office as soon as possible – we’d love to start off the school year strong!

Make sure you have the NEW Box Tops app on your phone! It’s the all-new way to earn cash for your school—no clipping required. If you’re ready, learn more here.
