The next few weeks at FWPA are going to be busy.  First, on April 23 is We Day, a celebration of community service event held at Seattle’s  Key Arena.  This event marks Fwpa’s third year as a We Day participant.  Sixty students from Fwpa will attend We Day 2015.

Next on April 27th Fwpa begins Smarter Balanced Testing for grades 6 to 8.  Our testing timeline begins on April 27th and ends on May 13th.  If possible please do not schedule appointments for your student during these days.  And, as always, we encourage students and parents to get a good night’s sleep and to eat a full and nutritious breakfast before school.

Then, on April 28th, Camp Season begins with the 8th and 9th grade camps leaving the morning of April 28th.

And  remember on May 1st, there is no school, as May 1st is Teacher Data Day.

2015 Federal Way Public Academy Annual Auction

Click here to visit The Federal Way Auction Website!

Watch your mailbox next week for your invitation to FWPA’s 16th Annual Auction on Saturday, March 14, 2015.  Come help us celebrate ‘Pi’ day (3.1415) at this year’s event, “The ‘Pi’rates of FWPA Island”.  Yes, that’s right…only at FWPA can you mix Pirates and Pi (Math) and make it into a fun-filled night that benefits our students.

The grade level ceramics projects; bowls, platters and even a lovely cake plate adorned with student stick figure self-portraits, are in their final stages. Grade level art projects, handmade by FWPA students, are about to get underway.  Each leadership class has chosen a theme for a classroom basket and are beginning to collect donations.  These baskets are sold during the live auction portion of the March 14 event, and include such themes as Chocolate, Best of Seattle, Parents’ Night Out and more.  The proceeds from the leadership baskets go directly to student camping trips later this year.

The generosity of the 2014 auction enabled FWPA to purchase a COW “Computers on Wheels” to complete FWPA’s first mobile computer lab.
