Hello! This is my second year serving on the PTSA Board. My husband Todd, Barrett and I have loved Hazelwood Elementary since Barrett’s first day of kindergarten. Barrett is currently in second grade in Ms. Dyson’s class. I enjoy event planning, cooking, and glorious PNW summers with family and friends. This year I am especially excited to be working on the Auction this coming spring and look forward to a fantastic and successful year at Hazelwood.
I’m Liz Mitchell, Co-President for the 2017-2018 school year. This is a picture of me and my 4th grader at one of my happy places – Key Arena watching the WNBA Seattle Storm! I also have a 6th grader who is now at Risdon Middle (ack! How do I have a middle schooler?). My husband, Jim, is a Boeing Engineer and we also have 3 cats, Georgie, Chance, and Lucky to round out our family unit. Georgie is quickly becoming our PTSA mascot and like to hang out with us during our meetings!
I have been a member of the PTSA since my oldest was in Kindergarten but I avoided getting involved as I was afraid of the time commitment and those nightmare stories that get passed on where your friend had a friend who had a friend who had a bad experience being a PTSA Mom….. Last year I decided to face my fear and join the Executive Team as VP. What an amazing experience! I wished I hadn’t waited so long to get involved and I was very excited to team up with Rebecca to help out again this year!
If you haven’t realized it yet, Hazelwood is a special community filled with wonderfully involved and caring parents, teachers, and staff. I have enjoyed getting to know the families and staff that make up our school and I hope that you’ll feel welcome to reach out to me or any of our Executive Team to hear more about what we’re all about and how you can be a part of something special.
Hi! So happy to be representing you as a member of this year’s PTSA Board. My son, Max, is in 5th grade at Hazelwood. Looking forward to a fun and successful year!
Hi, my name is Paul! I have a 5th grader at Hazelwood. We are incredibly excited about this school year and all of the amazing events and experiences we’ll share. We have even bigger plans for STEM night this year! Our other favorite PTSA events include Harvest Carnival, Fun Run, and Breakfast and Books.
This is my first year serving on the PTSA Board. I’m so excited to get more involved and help support the students, teachers, and Hazelwood community. I have a 1st grader, Lily; an almost 4 year old, Mac; and my husband is Jim. We love being a part of the Hazelwood family! Our favorite events are Harvest Carnival, STEM Night, Fun Run, and Skate Nights.
I have two kids at Hazelwood – Miles in third grade and Cole in first grade. I am so glad my inner math-nerd can help out the PTSA at the treasurer position! My favorite PTSA activities are the student garden, STEM events and the Harvest Carnival. Fun fact: my high school mascot was also a mustang. Go Mustangs!!
Hi! My name is Heidi & I have a 5th grader at Hazelwood, Coby. This is my second year serving on the board. My favorite PTSA events/programs are YEARBOOK, REFLECTIONS Art Contest and the MULTICULTURAL Festival.
Hi! I’m Vanessa and I have a 5th grader, Aiden; a 3rd grader, Iain; and a 4 year old, Evan. This is my second year on the board. Being on the board allows me to be involved with school events, kept up-to-date with classroom occurrences, and build connections with other board members, staff, and teachers. PTSA is a wonderful way to serve our students, our staff, and our community!
