Returning board member! I truly believe in the force of our PTSA organization to help our school provide the best in terms of academic and co-curricular opportunities while also focusing on community building with all scholars and families. This year, we want to continue to focus our endeavors to support the school with appropriate funding for tools and technologies, while also bringing back some in person fun events that we have missed, no thanks to the pandemic.
I continue to be amazed by our incredibly gracious and warm Hazelwood family – the awesome school staff and the parents who are so gracious with volunteering their time and donations, irrespective of the tide.
Excited to carry forward the great work put in by previous boards and leaning on each one of you to help us realize our collective vision of providing all our scholars with an enriching and empowering ecosystem.
Please feel free to reach out to share ideas, volunteer, and support.

Hello! This is my second year on the board and I’m very excited to serve. I look forward to working with the PTSA community and school to identify funding opportunities to benefit Hazelwood children. I’m passionate about literacy. PTSA has been involved in funding critical literacy tools and books. Please reach out if you would like to find out what PTSA has funded in previous years or what items have been proposed for future funding to improve our children’s education.

My name is Yaz Armstrong. This is my first time as a volunteer on a PTSA Board. I have two children, one who has been in Hazelwood since Kindergarten and starting 5th grade, and my youngest who will be starting Kindergarten 2021-2022 upcoming school year. I have had the opportunity to be a volunteer in the classroom and love to help. As a way to bring people together during this last year, I created a Facebook Community (Mustang Parents Group) for parents of students at Hazelwood, as a way to share and come together during challenging times. My background has been in telecommunications for over 20 years and I am currently an Environmental, Health and Safety Program Manager for a local telecom company specializing in emergency response and COVID-19. I love the Hazelwood community! I look forward to this coming year and working and providing support to the parents, the board and the school.
I have had the opportunity to experience the wonderful teachers, staff and leaders at HWE who have nurtured both of my children over the past 6 years. This year I look forward to supporting the scholars and teachers as a member of the PTSA Board. My background includes leadership and board positions within the greater Seattle area and in my free time you can find my kids and I at the pool or on the ski slopes.
