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!

Consider Making a Year-End Gift to Hazel Wolf PTSA

Dear Hazel Wolf Family,

Hazel Wolf K-8 is a vibrant learning community that invites and values parent involvement.  The PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association) is here to help facilitate that involvement and to support our school in many ways.

We provide financial support to the school – Every teacher receives a PTSA classroom grant to support their teaching. Additional funds are dedicated to our library, arts programs, field trips, overnight/outdoor programming, tutors, and more.

We support families in need – Programs like our annual coat drive, weekend food backpack program, and our vacation food drives help support our families needing extra help. We provide financial aid to families with specific school-related needs and we provide grants to other non-profit organizations.

We build community – Through fun, relaxed social occasions, meals at school events, volunteer opportunities, and other activities, we help families connect. We support our Homeroom Representatives to find grade-level social activities and support special events such as the Multicultural Potluck that was held for the second time this fall.  This year we are especially committed to partnering with neighboring schools, offering enriching Parent Education events, and increasing racial equity in cooperation with the Racial Equity Committee and the school.

This work relies on donations from our families. Please consider making a year-end gift today. Your contribution helps fund important programs that support our children and school community.   Our goal is $14,000 for our direct appeal!  Thank you for your generosity.

Ways to give:

  • Online: https://hazelwolfk8.ejoinme.org/give
