Strategic Planning Initiative

Creating a vision for our children’s future.

Federal Way Public Schools has embarked on a Strategic Planning Initiative to develop the vision and direction for enhancing student achievement and success in the coming years.

The strategic plan will be our roadmap toward a future vision and provides unity, clarity and direction to the important work of the district.

In developing our plan, the District will use an approach that is inclusive and intentional and values all voices, and will continuously engage all stakeholders within the Federal Way Public Schools community.

This work must be collectively developed by members of our greater school community. There will be many opportunities to provide input on the Strategic Plan over the course of the year. The online survey is the initial effort to gather input, a series of forums for students, families and communities is another opportunity for participation.

We hope you’ll join in shaping what our school system should do and be for our community’s children.

Welcome to Saghalie!

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year at Saghalie Middle School. We are off to an fantastic start of the school year and it will only get better as we work together to support all students in reaching their full potential. Over the 4th of July break I took my family to Dungeness Spit and we got to see the Dungeness Lighthouse. Seeing the lighthouse reminded me of our Saghalie Mission: “We empower all students through high quality education to realize their full potential as healthy, life-long learners within our global society.”

It is our goal to empower all students through high quality education to realize their full potential as healthy, life-long learners within our global society and we could not do it without your support. Parents are the first lighthouses for children helping to light the way for student learning. Teachers also become beacons for learning and together help guide students to their future. Having students reach and sail beyond the limits of what once was considered impossible is why I became a teacher; it is my expectation for every student and staff member at Saghalie. I know that as we enter our 21st year of learning at Saghalie, we will be those beacons for our students.

DiscoverU and College Preparedness Week: October 12 – 16

Saghalie students are engaging in different activities over this next week as we join students across Seattle and South King County in exploring college and career options as part of the DiscoverU initiative. Part of Saghalie’s mission and vision is to prepare all students for life after high school and help all students to become college and career ready. College and career readiness is the key of STEM education at Saghalie. There are many different organizations in King County offering different Career and College Readiness activities for students. With the support of schools and community organizations, students of all ages have the opportunity to explore their futures and think about how education can help them reach their dreams. So, next Thursday, October 15th, all Saghalie staff and students are invited to wear College/Career gear as we celebrate the college and career options of our students as part of DiscoverU day.
