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!

We will be going to four local restaurants in our new neighborhood. We have scheduled an hour for each stop but feel free to linger for dinner or conversation and re-join the group later. If you are only able to attend for part of the evening, please come find us at one of the places listed.

As you may know, parking near Greenlake can be tricky so carpooling is advised. If the group becomes too large for the restaurants to accommodate, we may break into smaller groups. Please contact Amara Vandervort at afvandervort@gmail.com with any questions.

Washington State 2014 Healthy Youth Survey
 
 
Our district is participating in the Washington State 2014 Healthy Youth Survey during the week of October 13th – 17th. Hazel Wolf will be participating in the survey on Wednesday October 22nd due to 8th grade camp.
 
The Healthy Youth survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, access to school-based services, and sexual behaviors, abuse and orientation. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.
 
The Healthy Youth Survey is given to students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 across Washington State.
 
Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous.
 
Please read the Parent and Student Notification flyer (send home last week) for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey. 

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 

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
