    Dear Students and Parents of Federal Way High School:

    I hope all of our students and families are healthy, safe, and maintaining a growth mindset during this challenging time. Federal Way High School’s teachers began remote learning with our students last Monday (4/20/20). Teachers provided weekly enrichment lessons for students targeting priority course-specific standards and then supporting students with feedback. Many students also met with their teachers in Zoom video-conferencing activities during the week. Parents, please encourage your student to participate in Zoom video-conferencing with their teachers and to complete the enrichment lessons. It is these learning activities that will academically prepare your student for this coming school year.

    A reminder for students:

    • Continue to access your teachers’ Canvas learning management platform to receive weekly enrichment lessons. One way to log into Canvas is:
    • Check your school e-mail daily Monday through Friday. E-mail your teachers to receive further support on your enrichment lessons,
    • Participate in Zoom video-conferencing activities with your teacher and other students,
    • Watch Federal Way High School’s “FED Talks” (go to: fwps.org/fwhs),
    • Apply for an ASB leadership position for the next school year starting on Monday (4/27) and due Friday (5/1). For more information, please e-mail Mr. Cameron at: acameron@fwps.org
    • Read a book at least 30 minutes daily, and
    • Research the admissions requirements for a university, trade school, military, or other post-high school pathways to assist with your short and long term goal setting and discuss with your family

    A reminder for parents:

    • Provide a routine time with a quiet space for your child to work on classwork,
    • Ask your child what he / she is learning and check in on your child’s progress at least once a week. Students should be completing about one assignment weekly for each course,
    • Support your child to attend a Zoom video-conferencing activity facilitated by your child’s teachers which will include other students,
    • Encourage your child to e-mail his / her teachers to ask for help completing past assignments or new enrichment opportunities,
    • E-mail your student’s counselor if you would like further assistance in supporting your child,
    • Participate in short and long term goal setting with your child, and
    • Set a tone for a love of reading and learning. Your child should be reading at least 30 minutes every day.

    Federal Way High School is a great school!

    Go Eagles!
