Pillar 2 Safe climate and strong relationships with families and community Our second pillar recognizes that schools can t do it alone. Therefore, we will embrace parents, caregivers, and the entire Federal Way community as vital partners in the education of all our scholars.

MISSION In an environment of high expectations, high support, and no excuses, the staff of Federal Way Public Schools will continually learn, lead, utilize data and collaborate to ensure our scholars have a voice, a dream and a bright future. OUR CORE BELIEFS We believe every scholar can learn at the highest level. We believe our scholars must have voice, see themselves in their schooling, and be connected to the adults that teach them. We believe race, socioeconomics, language, cultural background, and other exceptionalities should not be predictors of scholar achievement. We believe what we do in the classroom every day has the greatest impact on scholar learning. We believe we must continually learn and grow in our practice if we are to meet the needs of all scholars. We believe we must intentionally collaborate and use data as a guide to improve our practice. We believe our families are critical partners in each child s learning.

4 RELIGION WHEN THEY FAST HOW THEY FAST WHY THEY FAST Baha i Buddhist Catholic Eastern Orthodox Hindu Jewish The Baha i fast takes place during Ala, the 19th month of the Baha í year, from March All the main branches of Buddhism practice some periods of fasting, usually on full-moon days and other holidays. Catholics fast and abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, and abstain from meat on all Fridays in Lent. For many centuries, Catholics were forbidden to eat meat on all Fridays, but since the mid-1960s, abstaining from meat on Fridays outside of Lent has been a matter of local discretion. There are several fast periods, including Lent, Apostles Fast, Dormition Fast, and the Nativity Fast, and several one-day fasts. Every Wednesday and Friday is considered a fast day, except those that fall during designated fast-free weeks. Fasting is commonly practiced on New Moon and Full Moon days and during festivals such as Shivaratri, Saraswati Puja, and Durga Puja (also known as Navaratri). Women in North India also fast on the day of Karva Chauth. Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is the bestknown fast day. The Jewish calendar has sixother fast days as well, including Tisha B Av, the day on which the destruction of the Jewish Temple took place. Abstain from food and drink from sunrise to sunset. Depending on the Buddhist tradition, fasting usually means abstaining from solid food, with some liquids permitted. On Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, two small meals and one regular meal are allowed; meat is forbidden. On Fridays in Lent, no meat is allowed. For the optional Friday fast, some people substitute a different penance or special prayer instead of fasting. In general, meat, dairy products, and eggs are prohibited. Fish is prohibited on some fast days and allowed on others. Depends on the individual. Fasting may involve 24 hours of complete abstinence from any food or drink, but is more often an elimination of solid foods, with an occasional drink of milk or water. On Yom Kippur and Tisha B Av, eating and drinking are forbidden for a 25-hour period, from sundown to sundown. On the other fast days, eating and drinking are forbidden only from sunrise to sundown. To focus on love of God and spiritual matters. A method of purification. Theravadin and Tendai Buddhist monks fast as a means of freeing the mind. Some Tibetan Buddhist monks fast to aid yogic feats, like generating inner heat. Teaches control of fleshly desires, penance for sins, and solidarity with the poor. The Lenten fast prepares the soul for a great feast by practicing austerity. The Good Friday fast commemorates the day Christ suffered. Strengthens resistance to gluttony; helps open a person to God s grace. A way to enhance concentration during meditation or worship; purification for the system; sometimes considered a sacrifice. Atonement for sins and/or special requests to God. Cultural & Religious Calendar Federal Way Public Schools 4

5 RELIGION WHEN THEY FAST HOW THEY FAST WHY THEY FAST Mormon Muslim Pagan Protestant (Evangelical) Protestant (Mainline) The first Sunday of each month is a fast day. Individuals, families, or wards may hold other fasts at will. Ramadan, the ninth month of the Muslim calendar, is a mandatory fasting period that commemorates the period when the Qur an was first revealed to Prophet Muhammad. Various Muslim customs recommend days and periods of fasting in addition to Ramadan. No organized fast days, but some pagans choose to fast in preparation for Ostara (spring equinox). At the discretion of individuals, churches, organizations, or communities. Not a major part of the tradition, but fasts can be held at the discretion of communities, churches, other groups, and individuals. Abstaining from food and drink for two consecutive meals and donating food or money to the needy. After the fast, church members participate in a fast and testimony meeting. Abstain from food, drink, smoking, profane language, and sexual intercourse from before the break of dawn until sunset for the entire month. At the discretion of the individual, some totally abstain from food, others reduce how much they eat. Though some people abstain from food or drink entirely, others drink only water or juice, eat only certain foods, skip certain meals, or abstain from temptations, edible or not. Discretion of those fasting. Closeness to God; concentration on God and religion. Individual or family fasts might be held to petition for a specific cause, such as healing for one who is sick or help with making a difficult decision. Some Muslims fast every Monday (some say Thursday) because Prophet Muhammad was said to do this, and some fast during the month of Sha baan, which precedes Ramadan, and especially during the three days leading up to Ramadan. Intended to purify a person energetically; often used to raise vibrational levels as preparation for magical work. Ostara fasting is used to cleanse oneself from heavier winter foods. Evangelical fasts have become increasingly popular in recent years, with people fasting for spiritual nourishment, solidarity with impoverished people, a counterbalance to modern consumer culture, or to petition God for special needs. For spiritual improvement or to advance a political or social-justice agenda. One example: the ELCA s Campaign of Prayer, Fasting, and Vigils.
