High School Planning Night for 8th Graders
2012-2013 School Year
Heading to High School? Have a Plan!
Every high school in Federal Way hosts a High School Planning Night to help eighth-grade students and their parents learn what to expect at high school – and to develop a plan to make the most of their educational opportunities before graduation.
Do you think you could be a brilliant doctor? Or picture yourself as a great chef? Interested in learning more about construction? Maybe you’d like to start a marketing and web design firm of your own. Then again, you might want to design buildings, roads or airplanes. Or, your passion may be to pilot airplanes. There are programs in the Federal Way school district that will help you prepare for all of these careers, and many more.
At high school planning night, you will learn about programs and opportunities available around the district, and how to transfer into a high school other than your neighborhood school to take advantage of specific programs.
Staff members from both middle and high schools -- including administrators, counselors, 8th grade advisors, high school Advancement via Independent Determination (AVID) coordinators, special education teachers, high school special education program specialists, English Language Learners (ELL) teachers, Career and Technical Education (CTE) teachers, career and college specialists, and translators -- will be on hand.Eighth graders, moms and dads -- you should be there, too!
