Field Day – June 28, 2023!

Field Day Volunteers Needed – Hello families! Field Day is coming up on Wednesday, June 28th, and we need volunteers to help run stations and facilitate activities. In order to be able to do that, you need to be cleared as a volunteer AHEAD OF TIME. The day before will not get you approved, and then we cannot use your help. Please start the process below to be cleared in time to help out. Elementary will be station based with classes rotating through together, instead of a free for all, which is different than years past.

The sign up link is here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B0E4FA5AE2CA0FA7-volunteers1

Thanks, and do not hesitate to email Ms. Sullivan for questions: rasullivan@seattleschools.org.

Hazel Wolf Community Discussion

Hazel Wolf K-8 School: Thanks to everyone who was able to participate in our Community Discussion on May 2! The comments and the questions we received from the community were so helpful!

Ms. Nelsen provided an update about anticipated changes for next year and discussed lessons learned from the threats of violence made in our middle school earlier this year. Our PTSA has taken the feedback from the community to make sure the next budget reflects our priorities.

Thanks to the board for helping facilitate small group conversations and Kim Steffensmeier for hosting the event. We will soon be sharing the powerpoint slides along with a small survey to assure all caregiver voices are heard.

2023 Hazel Wolf Direct Appeal Campaign

Our goal for the Hazel Wolf K-8 2023 Direct Appeal campaign is $75,000, which is equivalent to the proceeds of our typical auction. To reach our goal, we are asking each family to donate $125 per student (or just $10.50/month) in honor of Hazel Wolf’s 125th Birthday on March 10th. 

Message from Principal Nelsen


Thank you to our sponsors
