Lunch Bunch
School counsel, Jamshid Khajavi, offers:

"We will start taking our 3rd-5th grade students here at Hazel Wolf K-8 to Greenlake during lunch time to play soccer or ultimate Frisbee on Tuesdays, beginning September 23rd, 2014. Students will meet in the lunchroom and walk with faculty/staff members to the Greenlak...e fields. Just before lunch ends, the faculty/staff members will bring all students back in time for the start of class immediately after lunch.

If your child is interested in going to Greenlake during lunch time, please complete the form [currently available in the front hall] and return it to school as soon as possible. Students will be chosen to go to Greenlake on a rotating basis depending on the number of students interested. If you have any questions, please call Mr. Jamshid Khajavi (school counselor) at (206) 252-3640."

UPDATE 9/23/14
We have several kids who are interested in Lunch Bunch, there for we are not able to take everyone at one time. We have decided that this week (today, Tuesday, 23rd) we will be taking the 5th grade students only. Next week we will take 4th graders on 9/30. On 10/7 we will take the 3rd graders. We apologize to the 4th and 3rd graders who were planning on going out today. Unfortunately, we do not have enough adults to take everyone in one day.

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 

Two weeks of reading, learning, and fun will begin on Friday, October 3rd, so stock up on books at the book fair and get ready to read! 
The Read-A-Thon is an exciting challenge to all Hazel Wolf students to set a new ‘personal best’ record over 14 days of reading while raising money to support our school. Students gather donations from friends and family members in support of their reading efforts.
Every dollar raised will go directly to fund important programs to support our growing learners.
Prizes will be awarded to students who bring in the most reading pledge donations from family, friends, and community members, and to students in each grade band (K-2, 3-5, 6-8) who document the most minutes read during the Read-A-Thon. The class with the most combined minutes will be recognized, as will most minutes read/money raised by a first timer, and largest % increase in reading minutes.
Visit our Fundraising Page for more Read-A-Thon details, to make an online contribution, or download a fundraising packet. (link to fundraising page)

Through Garden Work Party
We need parent and student volunteers to create a container garden on the south end of our school:
Saturday, 10/4 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Rain or shine.
Jobs include:
  • Wheelbarrowing and then spreading mulch to prepare the surface.
  • Setting steel troughs on cement blocks
  • Lining the troughs with pea gravel
  • Filling the troughs with soil and perlite
We'll provide wheelbarrows, shovels, rakes, gloves, water, donuts, and bathroom access. We're expecting to move more than six cubic yards of mulch and soil, so the more strong backs, the better!
Come for as little or as long as you like. If you have questions, please contact Libby Titus at libbytitus@gmail.com or 206-915-1275
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.  As always if you have questions feel free to ask on the attendance line or email. 
2014-2015 School Times
Middle School start time will be 8:40 AM
Elementary start time will be 8:50 AM
Dismissal will be at 3:10 PM with bus departure at 3:20 PM

The North Seattle Boys & Girls Club has more openings for the Hazel Wolf K-8 Families for afterschool care. For the $37 annual membership students are entitled to participate in not only the after school program but a wealth of other activities including sports, homework help, camps, etc.

Painted Mural by 5th grade students
Ms. Bisagna's 6th grade math class created this mural to understand and apply ratios and proportions, while also promoting bike to work month and downtown Mount Vernon.  They took a poster by a local artist and found a way to make the dimensions of the poster proportional to the building.  They created 4 designs that worked, each with a different scale factor and height/length ratio (but all proportional to each other!)  The business owner chose one that fit the building best, then the class made a full-scale model from a 1-inch grid to 21-inch square papers, measuring all the time to maintain the ratio and enlarge proportionally.  Then the class trekked to Mount Vernon, transferred the patterns using a renaissance technique involving pencil holes and sharpie pens, and painted it on the building!
