Dear Parents and Guardians:
Our students and staff continue to do amazing things here at Federal Way High School. We have been re-certified as an AVID National Demonstration School. Our Pro-Start Culinary program and Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Lab are thriving and allowing students new amazing opportunities. Our Girls Wrestling team finished second overall in the WA State Wrestling Championships and we are
very proud of our WA State 170lb Girls Wrestling Champion. For the third year in a row our Boys Basketball team is entering the tournament for the WA State Championship. Our distinguished teachers and coaches exemplify what it means to mentor and bring out the best in our students. We are so very fortunate to have such dedicated and talented teachers working so hard to have a positive impact on Federal Way High School!
During 4/10 through 5/1 and 5/15 through 5/25 we will be administering WA State’s Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA), which is a graduation requirement. This assessment focuses on the Common Core standards in reading, writing, and math. Please try to not schedule planned absences on those days, as the tests are difficult to make up. As always, be sure your student is well rested and has had a substantial meal before testing.
Thank you for your continued positive support of our school. I look forward to seeing you at the many functions this spring.
Dr. Matt Oberst
