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 

Walking Field Trip Form
We are sorry for any inconvenience but we did not send out the most accurate form for our walking field trips.  September 15th your child should have brought home a BRIGHT ORANGE field trip form to be filled out.  We understand you probably already filled one out but it did not have all the information on it that is required to be on it.  The form is also attached if you would like to print it out yourself. Fieldtrip Permission Slip 9-15-14 Update
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
