SBAC schedule Beginning in the spring of 2015, Federal Way students in grades 3-8, 10 and 11 will take new state assessments. These are referred to as the Smarter Balanced Assessments. Students across Washington state, and in many other states, will take them.
The assessments measure student knowledge of the new state standards. This is the second year that Federal Way Public Schools have been teaching to these standards, which are often referred to as Common Core.

Last year Lakota achieved Level One Green School certification, focusing on waste reduction, and this year, we continued our quest by becoming one of ten King county schools who completed Green School Level Two certification by engaging in energy conservation practices, such as turning off lights in unoccupied rooms, setting thermostats at 68-70 degrees, and educating the public about energy conservation, among other rigorous criterion. We still had to maintain the progress in waste reduction with our Level One all the while.

It was a nasty, wet Northwest day but that didn’t stop the dedicated volunteers of Lakota Middle School from breaking ground for their new community garden. Lakota is the Federal Way Community Gardens tenth garden and our seventh Educational Garden. Thanks to Federal Way’s Mayor and Council Members for participating in the ground breaking for this new garden. Stop by Lakota this spring and watch our new garden member grow.
