New Course Offerings for 2013-2014 Eighth Graders!
Hey 7th graders – did you know that you have the opportunity to take “Introduction to Ukulele” as a one semester elective next year? Did you know that you do NOT need to have your own ukulele – we will lend you one? Did you know that we will be learning how to play basic chords so you can sing along with some of your favorite songs, as well as learning to read music and tabs so you can learn to play melodies and cool guitar licks, too?
If you didn’t sign up on your registration form, it is not too late! Stop by the office and pick up a new course registration form, select “Intro to Ukulele” as well as one other semester-long elective and turn it into the office ASAP. Questions? Contact Mrs. Swenson at 253-945-4937 or email email@example.com
ROBOTS are coming to SAC this fall! “Introduction to Robotics” is a hands-on experience using the LEGO MINDSTORMS robots. This STEM course (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) is a semester class for 8th graders only. There are still a few spaces left for the fall semester. Students need to (1) complete the ROBOTICS Class Application and return it to Mrs. Bell, and (2) ask two teachers to complete a ROBOTICS Teacher Recommendation form. Questions? Call Mrs. Bell at 253-945-4951 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Safety in our Schools: A Message from Board President Tony Moore
The safety of the children in our schools is a top priority for Federal Way Public Schools, and we are continually working to improve on the security measures we already have in place.
A local citizen’s proposal to place armed volunteers in our schools has recently received media attention. Our board and district officials are always open to good ideas. However, the school board unanimously believes that armed volunteers in our schools are, plainly, a bad idea and a step in the wrong direction. <more>
