We are currently experiencing  issues with the SPS websites. This is an issue with the SchoolFusion hosting servers and they are investigating to find a solution.

Hazel Wolf K-8
520 NE Ravenna BLVD

Through Garden Work Party
We need parent and student volunteers to create a container garden on the south end of our school:
 Sunday, 9/28, 9 a.m. to 12 noon, Rain or Shine

Jobs include:
  • Wheelbarrowing and then spreading mulch to prepare the surface.
  • Setting 5 steel troughs on cement blocks
  • Lining the troughs with crushed rock
  • Filling the troughs with soil and perlite
We'll provide wheelbarrows, shovels, rakes, gloves, water, donuts, and bathroom access. We're expecting to move 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 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. 
All School Fall Dance
Friday September 19th.  6:00PM-8:00PM
Have your dinner then come on back to Hazel Wolf school for some dancing fun. DJ Brian is back and will be entertaining us with music and lights. 
Dancing will be held in the cafeteria. All students are welcome but need a parent or adult present at all times. 
One gym will be open for running around and playing, and will also have some tables set up for simple snacks and treats. 
Snacks and Treats depend on you! Please considering bringing something to share. In the past people brought, store-bought cookies, home-made cookies, brownies and rice crispy treats. 
Water, cups and napkins will be provided. 
Questions or want to Volunteer? 
Volunteers are always appreciated. Primary help would be setting up tables and chairs (possibly moving tables in the cafeteria), and just helping to keep things tidy. 
This dance is always a blast and we hope to see you there.

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!

Auction Fund-A-Need video
Putting the "E" in E-STEM. Did you miss the auction? Then you missed this funny - yet informative - video short by 7th graders Zoey Plut and Anna Preston on the state of our technology here at Jane Addams. Students and staff are asking for better computer and science technology in the classrooms. We need iPads - we can't take the ones from this building to John Marshall next year! And we need high-tech science equipment - like LED microscopes - but also everyday items like Bunson burners. We want to make sure our students are learning at the highest level possible with the best equipment at their fingertips!
This year's Fund-A-Need raised $18,225. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO DONATED at the auction and also on the auction web site! We are well on our way to putting this much-needed technology into the hands of every Jane Addams student! 
It's not too late to donate to our Fund-A-Need! Checks can be made payable to Jane Addams PTSA. Please put "FAN" in the check memo and drop off your donation in the PTSA lock box located in the office. All amounts are appreciated. Thank you so much!
