Principal's Message

  • Mike McCarthy, Principal

    Phoenix Families,

    It was powerful seeing your scholars share progress and set goals during Scholar-Led Conferences last week! We hope you found the time valuable, helpful and worth your while—we are certainly grateful that the vast majority of our families were able to visit!

    We are data-driven at Sequoyah, and with your feedback on the SLC Check-in form, 97% of families reported that the conference was either “Helpful” or “Very Helpful”. In addition, we had the 5th highest SLC attendance rate in all of Federal Way Public Schools! We still plan to host SLCs for those of you who could not make it so we can get to 100%. We value our partnership and look forward to continue partnering through the year.

    One way to stay connected between SLCs (March is the next) is to post your scholar’s Essential Standards One-Pager (the one with the Phoenix Watermark image on it) in a prominent place in your home. Tracking these goals using the ParentVue app (directions to the right) will support your scholar immensely throughout the year. If you notice your scholar needs help in mastering these key skills in every content area, please reach out to your teacher. We have a variety of ways we can support (after school study club, during the school day’s intervention time, etc.).

    We want to host current and former members of our Armed Forces on Tuesday, November 13th for our Veterans Day Assembly. Sequoyah Musicians, student speakers and a special guest from our own parent community will help us recognize and honor the service and sacrifice of our veterans. Join us at 8:35am on Tuesday!

    Thank you for partnering!

    Principal McCarthy
