Hello Federal Way Public Schools parents and guardians,
This year, we want each of our student-scholars to learn, lead and dream big.
In Federal Way Public Schools, we are committed to the success of your child and know schools can’t do it alone. Research shows that when parents partner with schools, student achievement increases. That’s why we need your help to ensure your child is achieving at high levels and that school is a safe, productive learning environment.
We would like you to partner with us in the following ways:
Have conversations with your child about being positive and productive inside and outside of the classroom. You play an important role in establishing and supporting high expectations for behaviors for your children while they are in school.
Attend your child’s back to school open house during the week of Sept. 17–21, 2018 to prepare for the upcoming school year, learn about how the school is ensuring a safe learning environment, and much more. Contact your school for the specific date and time.
Encourage your child to attend school every day. When our scholars aren’t at school, they miss out on important learning to help them be successful at school. A student who misses 10 days or more during a school year is 20 percent less likely to graduate from high school and 25 percent less likely to ever enroll in college.
Mark your calendars and attend scholar-led conferences. This year, conferences will be held Nov. 8-9, 2018 and Mar. 21-22, 2019. Scholar-led conferences offer your child an opportunity to have a voice in their learning.
Research tells us that students who know their goals and the steps necessary to achieve success are more likely to reach their fullest learning potential.
Check ParentVUE on a regular basis so you are informed about your child’s attendance and grades to encourage their academic growth and success in school.
Together, we can dream big for your child and all children served in Federal Way Public Schools.
