2015-anything-goes-PosterTJHS Presents: Anything Goes

TJ is proud to present our spring musical, Anything Goes. The show is set aboard the ocean liner S. S. American, where nightclub singer/evangelist Reno Sweeney is en route from New York to England.  Anything Goes is a shining example of classic musical theater, complete with amazing tap numbers, campy jokes, unlikely happy endings and eminently hummable songs like “De-Lovely,” “I Get a Kick Out Of You” and “Anything Goes,” courtesy of the unforgettable score by Cole Porter. Performance dates are April 30, May 1, May 2, May 8 and May 9 at 7:30 PM and May 3, May 9 and May 10 at 2:00 PM. Tickets are $11/general admission and $9/seniors (age 55 and older) and can be purchased by contacting or at the door.


Questions about School? There’s an App for That!


Parents and students today are busier than ever. Now, Federal Way Public Schools has an app to help you stay up-to-date and involved with school no matter where you are. All you need is a smart phone. Search for “Federal Way Public Schools” on the Apple App Store, and in Google Play. What can you do on the FWPS app? Just for starters, you can check:

  • Calendars
  • Grades, thanks to direct links to ParentVUE, StudentVUE and TeacherVUE
  • Lunch menus
  • Lunch balances (and pay!)
  • Game scores
  • Facebook and Twitter

You’ll get the latest news right in the feed — and flyers too, if you choose to. That’s right, you can customize it to get the information you want most, for just the schools your children attend. Select the calendars you want, and see them combined on your device.

Another way to get emergency notifications: Our new app gives you another way to get notifications you typically get through automated phone calls and email. Once you download the app, these will show up like a text message on your phone, as long as the app is open. You’ll be able to click through to read more. Keep your eyes open for more capabilities on the app in the near future!
