The Annual Federal Way Lions Foundation, Federal Way Police Department, South King Fire & Rescue Basketball Challenge
Saturday, April 4, at 11:30 AM
Federal Way Community Center
This year the City of Federal Way is working with us to make this a huge success, but, we need your help. Each one of these organizations are very involved in our schools and community making a difference.
Several years ago the Lions started a “Unity Spirit Award” presented to a high school who demonstrated unity and spirit at the game. Federal Way High School is the 2014 winner. The school who shows the most spirit will take home the traveling trophy. Show your city pride and support this game.
Please encourage your cheerleaders, teams, students and staff to support this event and show their school spirit by wearing their school colors and cheering on the police and fireman as they battle it out on the court.
All three of these organizations donate their time, money, and time assisting churches and needy families at Thanksgiving and Christmas with both food and gifts as well as:
- FW Lions Foundation provides scholarships to high school students, awards to middle school students, dictionaries to third graders and vision services to needy students.
- FW Police have SRO’s in your schools, they keep us safe, take needy kids shopping and many other things.
- South King Fire & Rescue delivers food and toys to our needy families, they are there in an emergency and provide safety education.
Student Led Conferences will be held on Wednesday, April 15th and Thursday, April 16th, 2015. Students will be calling home to set up times that work with your schedules in the beginning of April. We will be hosting a dinner on that Wednesday evening in conjunction with the conferences and hope that you will be able to attend. Please do not hesitate to call in questions or concerns, our main office number is 253-945-5800.

A huge thank you to our entire community that supported our Teens 4 Jeans initiative in partnership with Aeropastle. Our school brought in nearly 600 pairs of jeans to donate to the cause!
Our school hosted the Federal Way Rotary for lunch on February 19th. It was a wonderful opportunity for our students. Additionally, they were able to experience a demonstration from the Federal Way Police Departments Bomb Squad. We are so proud of our incredible student body!
We will offer an after school study club every Monday and Wednesday from 2:45 to 4:00pm. This opportunity will be delivered by staff and student volunteers and is designed to support all classes.
Report cards will be mailed home the beginning of March. We apologize for the delay, but want to accurately report credits/grades earned from first semester that reflect course extensions that some students earned in their Internet Academy classes. Please contact our main office with any additional questions at 253-945-5800.
A representative from Jostens will be on campus meeting with Seniors on Wednesday, Feb. 4 at 9:30am. Ordering information for the cap and gown and optional graduation supplies will be distributed. Seniors who are attending PSSC or Running Start and are unable to attend can pick up ordering information in the office on that afternoon or later. Please call our office at 253.945.5801 if you have any questions.
This spring, Federal Way students in grades 3-8, 10 and 11 will take new state assessments. These are referred to as the Smarter Balanced Assessment and 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 we have been teaching to these standards, which are often referred to as Common Core.
What is different about these assessments?
