Hazel Wolf 7th Annual Spelling Bee – Monday, Jan. 27

Hey Hazel Wolfers!

What do “deny,” “pressure,” “investigation,” “campaign,” and “misdemeanor” all have in common? They are all words on the 2019-2020 Scripps National Spelling Bee study list, of course!

The Seventh Annual Hazel Wolf Spelling Bee is on Monday, Jan. 27, 2020 at 3:30 p.m. – still a ways off, but there is no time like now to start stretching those mind muscles.

You can find a printed copy of the full 2019-2020 School Spelling Bee List in the communications center next to the Living Wall, or email studentenrichment@hazelwolfk8.org and we will email you a PDF.

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
  • Cash or check: Please make checks out to Hazel Wolf K-8 PTSA. Fill out this donation form and include it with your contribution in an envelope. Please return it to your student’s classroom/home teacher or the office.
