Spirit Gear Swap

We need your previously loved Hazel Wolf Spirit Gear! Please drop any clean and still in good condition Hazel Wolf clothing items in the box located in the school office lobby now through the end of the school year.

Hazel Wolf will be hosting its first ever Spirit Gear Swap in September! We want all students to be able to proudly rock their Hazel Wolf gear. Next school year, students and families will have the opportunity to visit the Spirit Gear Swap table to choose a previously loved (but still in good condition) Hazel Wolf clothing item. In order to get this new event going, we will need to collect any Hazel Wolf Spirit Gear that your child has outgrown and/or no longer wears. Thank you!

Our Condolences

On behalf of the Hazel Wolf K-8 PTSA, I want to say how incredibly sorry we are for the loss of Yosiyas. To his family, his friends, his classmates, his teachers, now and across the years, please know our hearts and thoughts are with you. It’s clear that Yosiyas has had a profound impact on our entire community. We have all been touched and feel his loss.

We are reminded of how intertwined all of our students are—it’s one of the true benefits of our K-8. Our kids grow together from the time they are small through middle school. Our big kids are buddies with our smaller kids. They all know each other, we are all connected, and during times like this we all want to help.

I know some families are currently looking for ways to support the Zigta family. If you are able to help, please consider donating to the gofundme which has been created to support expenses their family may have during this time.


Kim Steffensmeier, and all of our PTSA Board Members

Updated: Latest Supply Lists and Welcome Letters

There was some confusion on an earlier PTSA website post regarding the latest school supply lists. We also heard that some families did not receive an email with their grade-level letter and supply list. Below we’ve uploaded the latest letters that we received from the HWK-8 office, including the latest letter from Principal Nelsen that went out by email on August 18.

If you see any discrepancies or have questions, please comment and let us know, or email us at Thanks!
