Dear Federal Way Public Schools Parents, Guardians and Community,
As we close out another successful school year, I want to recognize the truly extraordinary scholars that make up the Class of 2019. They worked hard, and they achieved their goals. Collectively, they’ve earned $17,420,000 in scholarships. Nine out of 10 scholars plan on attending a post-secondary training or certificate program after high school, including apprenticeships, technical, and two- and four-year colleges or universities and the military. Two hundred and thirty-one of these scholars were the first in their family to graduate from high school, and 400 will be the first in their family to attend college.
These are amazing accomplishments, and I look forward to seeing what comes next as the members of the Class of 2019 march boldly towards their futures.
As we enter the summer months, the learning doesn’t have to end. Scholars can keep their reading skills sharp and prepare for next school year by reading for 30 minutes a day. Some FWPS students will be attending a wide variety of summer learning opportunities focused on STEM/STEAM, the arts, reading, kindergarten readiness, and more. Please visit www.fwps.org for more information.
I also want to thank our parents, guardians and community for your continued support. We know schools can’t do it alone, and we appreciate your partnership to ensure every scholar achieves at high levels and that school is a safe, productive learning environment.
Superintendent Dr. Tammy Campbell
