Chipotle Fundraiser for Hazel Wolf PTSA – Weds. Oct. 21

The Chipotle Restaurant Night Fundraiser happening next week on Weds. October 21 from 4-8pm at Northgate Mall. Chipotle will donate 33% of all our supporters’ sales to Hazel Wolf K-8 PTSA. What a great excuse to order take out!

And good news, you can order online via app or website! Just make sure to use the promo code: XFANBAY, and pick up during the fundraiser timeframe at Northgate. Of course, you can still go in person and order at the restaurant– just be sure to mention Hazel Wolf.

Thanks for supporting Hazel Wolf K-8 PTSA!

Open (Air) Studio for Reflections Art Contest – Oct. 4

i-matter-because-ig-420x420

Let’s come together to make art for Reflections! (Socially distanced, of course.) The Reflections theme this year is “I Matter Because…”

Where: We will meet at the lower part of Maple Leaf park near the east baseball field at the corner of NE 82nd St. and 14th Ave NE.

When: 1-2:30 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 4.

What to bring: a blanket or something to sit on. Also please bring your own water bottles, sunscreen, and snacks. Hard surfaces (such as cardboard or clipboards) that can be put under paper while it is being used would be appreciated. Feel free to bring art supplies too (not required).

Tatiana Kaminsky, our volunteer Reflections Chair, will bring art materials kids can use (paper, markers, crayons, scissors, etc.) in addition to wipes for cleaning equipment between kids’ use and hand sanitizer. She also will have the forms kids and their parents/guardians need to submit with their Reflections entries, which are due Oct. 30.

Please fill out an online form so that I can plan and make sure I have enough materials for the kids!

THIS IS NOT A DROP OFF EVENT – parents/guardians must stay with the kids. MASKS ARE A MUST!

Questions? Email Tatiana at tatiana.kaminsky@gmail.com
