Building Resilience Through Mindfulness Workshop – Tuesday, March 16

As the tedium of Covid continues, parents are feeling a teeny bit stressed and our kids pick it up. Join a supportive workshop for simple family-friendly practices that help you step away from anxiety to revive your energy and boost family connections, taught by Hazel Wolf special education teacher Andrea D’Asaro.

Register in advance for this meeting: http://bit.ly/2O5ArjX

Parents will enjoy proven practices like soft belly breathing, mindful eating and unrestricted movement that engage all of your senses and create islands of serenity for those tough moments. We will enjoy self-compassion practices that transform worries and bring deep care to ourselves and our families. We’ll have fun with infectiously funny animal breathing that can soothe difficult moments with your student and help overcome online frustrations.

Parents Supporting Parents Virtual Community Discussion – Tuesday, March 2

Thanks to everyone who came to the last meeting. There was so much helpful information shared that we decided to have another meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 2, 2021. By then we’ll be coming up on a year of COVID. It’s a good time to take stock and think about where we are now and what we’ve learned. How are we doing? How are we tending to our mental health? How about our kids’ mental health? Let’s get together and share some ideas. Everyone is welcome!

Save the Date for the 2021 Direct Appeal – March 1-14

This year, we are sadly unable to hold our annual auction event, which is typically our biggest fundraiser of the year. However, we are hopeful to find new ways to successfully engage with our generous community during our Direct Appeal Campaign, running March 1-14, 2021.

In a normal year, our annual auction typically raises over $90,000 and is only successful because of donors and families, like you. This year our campaign goal is $40,000, which will enable us to maintain our most important school support programs during this virtual school year.

By giving to Hazel Wolf K-8 PTSA, you’ll be investing in every student and ensuring consistent funding of our existing programs, such as our: Reading and Math Tutors who are successful providing extra support to struggling students, Staff Grants that support our (virtual) classrooms, supplies and enrichment materials, and SO MUCH MORE.

Thank you for saving the date and considering a financial commitment to your child, to every child, through our Direct Appeal.
