We heard from several families they did not know the Direct Appeal was happening, so we are extending the deadline to March 31, 2022. Thank You to those who have already donated (90 families or 13% of our community) raising $30,000 or 40% of our goal. If each family contributes $110/student then we’ll reach our goal of $75,000. We have new raffle prize in the works, guaranteed to be kid-pleasers! To donate send a check to the school made payable to “Hazel Wolf K-8” or donate online here: https://hazelwolfk8.ejoinme.org/2022DirectAppeal.

It’s the time of year when the PTSA raises money to fund the programs and services that enrich our children’s lives, engage our families, support our teachers, and help our community. This year our goal is to raise $75,000, which is the equivalent to our typical auction proceeds, but even more importantly, we want 100% participation. So even if you only give a dollar, we want to see your contribution. The campaign runs from February 28th to March 13th. There will be raffle prizes for those who donate. Special thanks to our corporate sponsors, Amrit Burn Orthodontics and Emerald Center for Integrative Medicine, and Roosevelt Vision Source.

Mr. Fogarty, Hazel Wolf E-STEM Coordinator, thanks the PTSA and shares the significant ways funding from the PTSA supports his E-STEM role and the E-STEM programs at Hazel Wolf:
Outdoor education scholarships: Reducing financial barriers so all students can attend outdoor education field trips, such as NatureBridge, Camp Sealth and Mt. Rainier Institute.
ESTEM storylines: Funding to help teachers take release time and to attend trainings for E-STEM storylines. This allows teachers to come together to collaborate and work on new curriculum.
Multimedia class and equipment: Enabling purchase of cameras, tripods, digital recorders for use by the MS Multimedia class and by anyone in the school. In class, students make websites, films, podcasts and more. A student from the class has a photograph going on to the national level for the PTA Reflections contest. Also, equipment is used for documenting special events at school and teachers’ work.
Thank you to our community for your support and making these incredible E-STEM programs possible for our school. The Hazel Wolf Online Auction is currently open and closes on Sunday, April 5th at 9:00pm. To make a donation or to participate in the online auction, go to: hazelwolf2020.ggo.bid.
Here is Hazel Wolf’s Drama & Elementary Music Teacher– Ms. Burnett. She’s going to share with you how her music program has benefited by supporting funds from the PTSA.
Key Highlights: Ms. Burnett came to Hazel Wolf eight years ago and was in charge of starting the brand new music program—but she didn’t have any instruments!
Over the years, she has been able to purchase xylophones, drums, tambourines and many kinds of classroom instruments through music grants from the PTSA. More recently, Ms. Burnett was able to purchase a whole classroom set of ukuleles with outside funding plus support of PTSA funding. She looks forward to teaching ukulele to the students soon!
While district funds can only go so far, this shows how support from PTSA funds can help our teachers and staff create stronger programs and bring more enriching experiences to every student in our school community.
Thank you for your support of our online auction going on now. You can go to hazelwolf2020.ggo.bid to make a donation and to bid/buy auction items. The online auction closes on Sunday, April 5th at 9:00pm.
