Note from the Principal

Dear Hazeldale Families,


One of my favorite days of the year is on Friday! Hustle for Hazeldale! I love seeing all our kids in their matching shirts running, walking, smiling, huffing and puffing as we run for Hazeldale. Below you will see the run times and more about our hopes for the money it raises to benefit the students of Hazeldale. It is our hope that you all have submitted an application to become a volunteer so that your background check has been cleared. If you aren't a cleared volunteer, guests will need to stay in a designated area to be a spectator. It is much more fun to join in on marking tally marks on the student bibs and give them high fives as they run by. So please take a couple moments to just get that application in so you can join the fun.


This Friday Hazeldale is also showing we CARE by going gold. Wear gold in efforts to raise awareness for Pediatric Cancer on Friday, September 27th (until kids change into their fun run shirt!). A former Hazeldale student wrote to me asking if our school would participate—and it really fit with our focus on the Learner Profile of Caring for the month of October.


Caring: We show empathy, compassion and respect. We have a commitment to service, and we act to make a positive difference in the lives of others and in the world around us.


The Student Success Act needs your input—Speak Up for Student Success


Our October 14th PTO Meeting, 6:30-8 pm, will give you opportunity for discussion and input. We will also have a Spanish translator available at this meeting. For more information and the survey, please visit the Student Success Act webpage.


Looking forward to running for Hazeldale with all our students on Friday!

Pumpkin Patch

The Hazeldale PTO had the opportunity to partner with Bella Organic Pumpkin Patch on Sauvies Island for a ticket fundraiser- the tickets are $8 (adults) or $6 (children/senior) and Hazledale get's 50% of each ticket sold to the Bella Organic Corn Maze! It is 2.8 miles and includes games along the way! Bella Organic also has a pumpkin patch, organic store & farm animals! Please complete the attached form and return to the school with a cash or check made out to Hazeldale PTO and we will include tickets for your student to take home. We will also be selling tickets at the Family Fun Night (9/20) & Harvest Festival (10/10).

Green Team

Did you know that Hazeldale’s Green team currently recycles the plastic utensils used at lunchtime? Not only does it keep plastic out of landfills, it is also great practice to prevent loss when we start using reusable silverware later in the year. So, as part of our silverware pilot program we are asking for parent volunteers to help insure that the plastic utensils make it into the proper bin rather than in the garbage. We are also collecting food waste. This needs to be monitored to make sure no garbage ends up in the food waste bin. Volunteers are needed during Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade lunch. The shifts are 20 minutes between 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. Please sign up at: https://app.betterimpact.com/Volunteer/Schedule/SignupFromCalendar
