Hazel Wolf K-8 PTSA Endorses Levy 1 and Levy 2

At the January General Session meeting last Wednesday, the PTSA membership voted to endorse Levy 1 and Levy 2 that are on the ballot for the upcoming election. We were lucky to have Linda Seabring, SPS Budget Director, talk about the impact of the levies on next year’s budget. The presentation she gave is available for download if you weren’t able to attend.

Ballots are being mailed now – please remember to vote!! Ballots are due February 12.

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

So far this school year we have:

  • Provided teachers with classroom grants and supported a variety of special projects
  • Organized the movie “Angst” for our families and 5th-8th grade students
  • Brought our community together at the start of school open house, coffee breaks, multicultural potluck night, and our 3rd annual Toy Swap
  • Organized staff appreciation events
  • Kept families informed through the PTSA website, Facebook, and the monthly Paw Print newsletter
  • Completed the Hazel Wolf K-8 Reflections art contest
  • Organized weeding parties to keep our campus beautiful, and started several new recycling programs
  • Organized coat, food, and snack drives to support our families

This work relies on donations from our families. Please consider making a gift today. Your contribution helps fund important programs that support our children, and 100% of your gift supports the school. Our goal is $9,000 for our direct appeal! Thank you for your generosity.
