Ski Bus
 
MOHAN’s website is ready for YOU to sign up!
Six Friday Nights: Bus & Lessons = $375-Only Bus=$265
In addition to this you will need lift tickets and ski equipment.
Our program runs Fridays January 9, 16, 23, 30 February 6, 13

General idea: Friday morning students bring ski gear to school and store it in room 302 until the end of the day. Students get gear, change and get on snow bus to Snoqualmie Pass. They have lessons, free ski, eat dinner, and get back on bus at 9ish. Parents pick up students at 10:30ish pm at school. Students can rent gear from Snoqualmie (won’t have to haul it) or at Sports Authority (have to haul it).


Spirit Gear
 Order your 2014-2015 spirit gear!  Order forms should be arriving home 11/14.  You can also look at the attachments for all the fun gear this year.  All orders are due by December 1, 2014 with checks made out to Hazel Wolf K-8 PTSA.  You can also go to the Fundraising link to the left.

Totally Red
 
Our Middle School Drama class has been working on the play Totally Red this semester.  It is a fun re-telling of the classic fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood in six different styles!  Come see what Red would sound like in Shakespeare’s time, 1980’s rap, and in musical theater style.  This play features student directors as well as student actors.  Performances are December 4 and 5th at 7 p.m. in the Hazel Wolf Cafeteria/Auditorium.  Tickets are free, but donations gladly accepted which will benefit our spring musical.  Hope to see you there!

Update on Advanced Learning
Because the Advanced Learning office received more than 5,400 applications, the testing process takes several months. All students whose applications met the October 2 deadline will be scheduled for testing. Please be patient. Testing takes place throughout November, December and January. Families will be notified by phone or email prior to testing. Many students in grades 2-8 will be offered the opportunity to test on Saturdays at the John Stanford Center due to space limitations at school sites. Students in kindergarten and first grade will in most cases be tested at their school during regular hours, as will all students who cannot participate in Saturday testing.Advanced Learning

Winter Music Concert
The 3rd/4th Grade Vocal Music Winter Concert will be on Tuesday, December 9th at 7 p.m. in the Hazel Wolf Cafetorium.  All students who participate in Mrs. Burnett's music class should be there!  This is a time to share our music with each other, our families, and our greater community.  Students need to meet in Mrs. Burnett's music room by 6:40 p.m. for warm-ups.  Students should wear concert attire, perhaps a dress, skirt, or dress pants for girls and nice pants and shirt for boys.  If your student does not have this type of clothing, then feel free to wear our school colors which are blue and green or whatever else works.

Information for HWK-8 Elementary Parents
The Seattle School District has modified the elementary progress report which you will be receiving for your elementary students.  The learning behavior, language arts and mathematics sections have been revised to correspond with the current Common Core curriculum that your students are experiencing in the classroom.  For more information, please see the district's video on this topic, which can be found here:  http://vimeo.com/110191805 (click on the dark gray rectangle with the white arrow in the lower left corner of the report card image).
Volunteering at Hazel Wolf K-8
The district has provided us with a new screening process to volunteer in schools.  Please take the time to fill out each form and watch the video.  The district helps us track who has watched the video. Volunteering is one of the many things that makes a school great.  Do you want to volunteer this year?  If so, please read the following SPS policy and complete all of the following forms before volunteering. 

General Volunteering: PTSA Volunteer Coordinator: Bethany Febus

Green Cards for Buses
To request a temporary green card for your child to ride on a bus with a friend or to get off at a different stop please do one of the following: call 206-252-3584, email hazelwolf.attendance@seattleschools.org, or send a note in with your child.  Currently we are unable to give green cards for buses 520, 521, 524, and 518 as they are listed at full capacity.  Most door to door service buses are also at full capacity.  It is best to request a green card at least a day in advance but can also be done the day of at least an hour before school gets out.
Reflections Program
Please encourage your students to participate in this great arts competition. Kids have many hidden talents and this is an opportunity to discover and display them. 
 
You might consider doing a class project around the theme, "The World Would be a Better Place if ........, " then encourage  the students who did outstanding, creative work to submit it to the Reflections competition. Be sure to follow the guidelines. Entry forms are available on line or near the Reflections posters in the hallway. All entries are due by Friday, November 21. Bring submissions to the office.
 
This year students with disabilities may receive special attention by entering the special artist's division. Check out the website: http://www.wastatepta.org/programs/reflections/program_details.html 
 
All entrants will receive a certificate. Exceptional work will sent to compete on the city level, where this work will be displayed at Seattle Center in January. Some submissions will move to the state level. Last year, Zhenhua Banfill's dance made it to the state level (Go Hazel Wolf!) Some may even make it to the national level. 
 
Let's encourage our students to shine as brightly as they can!

Running Club
Running Club has started!  Interested students and parents are invited to meet school counselor, Mr. Jamshid in the beautiful tree lined median in front of school and run/walk for half an hour.  Did you know that 5 times around is a mile?  Sign-up forms are located on a table in the front lobby and right here: Running Club Hazel Wolf
 
Running Club meets on Mondays and Fridays during 8:00 am to 8:30 am (please note that this is 15 minutes later than planned) to complete laps.  The club will continue to meet until Thanksgiving break.  You would be surprised how the laps add up.  Last year, many students, including kindergarteners, easily accumulated more than 15 miles by the end of the season.
 
Those students who like a challenge may be interested in the Seattle Children's Kids Marathon which is taking place on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, 11/29.    Participants are asked to accumulate 25 miles of running or walking prior to the event; then, on November 29th, participate in the last 1.2 mile run. (This is less than 1.5 miles or 7 1/2 times around the course per Running Club meeting!)
 
The race entry fee is $20.  Some scholarships are available through school.  Please contact Mr. Jamshid regarding entry forms and scholarships.  Entry forms and more information is also available online at:  http://www.seattlemarathon.org/kids/register.php 

Weekly Bulletins
You didn't miss it!  This year there will be a monthly newsletter put out on the first Friday of each month.  The PTSA will give you all the happenings for the month.  We will keep the website up to date as best as we can.  We are still in the process of making sure all items are changed over to Hazel Wolf so if you catch something please let us know at hmoliver@seattleschools.org.
Reporting Attendance
hazelwolf.attendance@seattleschools.org is up and running correctly!  You may also call the attendance line at 206-252-3584.  Please report attendance, absence or late, ahead of time.  Calls are made early in the morning to check in on unreported absences. 

FYI for how attendance works: for elementary the attendance is done two times during the day AM & PM, if your student misses an hour on either end it will be indicated as an absence for that section.  (i.e. Sally arrives at school at 10 AM- that would be an absence for the AM but present for the PM).  Middle School if they miss 15 min of a class it will be marked as an absence for that class period for Monday- Wednesday and if they miss 45 min on their Thursday-Friday block schedule.  To have an absence be excused it must be reported within 3 days of the absence.  As always if you have questions feel free to ask on the attendance line or email. 

You can also check out the district page on matters dealing with Truancy
