Thank You!

Thank you to the PTO and our families for loving our staff during Staff Appreciation Week. We all felt so loved!

As I greeted the students each morning, they had flowers, candy, gifts for their teachers. I know the teachers felt so appreciated.

Each day the PTO showered our teachers with snacks! It was so nice to have a daily snack to keep us going!

We are all so lucky to have such a caring community at Hazeldale.

Parent/Guardian Input for Class Placement for 2021-2022

Staffing for the next school year continues from late Spring and throughout the summer. Therefore, the school is not able to announce the name of teachers assigned to a particular grade level nor announce class rosters prior to August. Families will find out who their teacher is through communication that is sent to them the first week that teachers come back to work. Be sure our school has your updated email address!

Parents are given the opportunity to provide input to their current teachers regarding the learning needs of their child. Teachers will use this, as well as their own information, to place students in classes for next year. Placement Input Forms are available as a Google Form Link and are due by Friday, May 21st.

We do not accept requests for specific teachers. When current teachers place students in classes, they use many factors to create optimal class groups. Class groups are balanced by gender as well as strengths and needs of students. Additionally, teachers balance classes by Special Education needs, English as a Second Language needs, and Talented and Gifted needs. Teachers also look at the behavioral needs of students. With all of this considered, we also attempt to balance class size whenever possible.

Please use the Placement Input Form if you would like to ensure that certain factors are considered. I can assure you that teachers take this task very seriously. A great deal of time and effort goes into this process and each child is individually considered. Please contact us with any questions you might have about this very important process.

All placements are final. If you wish to provide input, please use this process.

Annual Parent Survey

Annual Parent Survey

Please take a few moments to complete the BSD Annual Parent Survey! Our goal is to ensure that every member of our school community feels welcomed, valued, and informed, so it is important for all parents/guardians to complete the survey.

A link to the 2021 Annual Parent Survey will be sent to all valid parent email addresses via School Messenger on Sunday, May 16. The deadline to participate is Sunday, June 2.

Safe Schools

Dear Hazeldale Parents and Guardians,

It’s data collection time again for Beaverton’s Safe Routes to School program. The purpose of this program is to make walking and biking to school safe, convenient, and fun.

Parent’s and guardian’s input into how students travel to and from schools and their impression of the safety of the route is valuable as the city and county prioritize needed improvements for our roads. The following link was generated from the National Safe Routes to School Center and will be used to give us a good picture of how students are getting to and from schools throughout the district.

The school’s survey will be open for responses until May 31.

We appreciate your help in giving us information to make our program effective for all Beaverton School District students.

Thank you,

Leah Biado-Luis

Estimados padres y tutores de Hazeldale,

Es hora de recopilar información nuevamente para el programa de Beaverton de Rutas Seguras a la escuela. El propósito de este programa es ir caminando y en bicicleta a la escuela de manera segura, conveniente y divertida.

El aporte de los padres y tutores acerca de cómo los estudiantes viajan de ida a la escuela y de regreso a la casa y su impresión de la seguridad de la ruta, es valioso, ya que la ciudad y el condado priorizan las mejoras necesarias para nuestras carreteras.

El siguiente enlace link fue generado por el Centro Nacional de Rutas Seguras a la Escuela y se utilizará para darnos una buena idea de cómo los estudiantes viajan de ida a la escuela y de regreso a casa, en todo el Distrito.

La encuesta de la escuela estará abierta hasta el 31 de mayo para recibir sus respuestas.

Agradecemos su ayuda al brindarnos información para que nuestro programa sea efectivo para todos los estudiantes del Distrito Escolar de Beaverton.

HOPE Hazeldale Meetings

Read here to learn more about what HOPE means from our PTO.

Your Hazeldale PTO Team has been working hard this year providing teacher funding for: classrooms, special grants, teacher appreciation, and trying to keep our amazing community connected and engaged amidst the pandemic. We miss being able to do big events for our entire school, but we are so hopeful for next year!

The PTO Team has been attempting to find ways to better engage more parents- we know the term “PTO” can be off-putting for many and have decided to change our name to H.O.P.E- Hazeldale-Opportunities (for) Parents & Educators. We HOPE this will help encourage more to attend our Community Meetings (we have also changed the wording from PTO Meeting to Community Meeting). Please check out our updated website. We regularly have guest speakers to our meetings as well. In March, Mr. Culbert spoke to us about Social and Emotional Learning, specifically Self Awareness and Regulation Strategies.

He is returning to our Community Meeting on May 10th at 7pm to discuss Social and Emotional Learning: Integration at Home While Supporting Your Student Over the Summer! We HOPE you can join us- Zoom
