Korean School of Federal Way

KSFW is a Korean language school that focuses on the four elements of language acquisition (speaking, listening, reading, and writing), while also offering cultural enrichment classes, such as taekwondo, choir, and samulnori. Classes are open to pre-K to 12th graders, as well as adults. We meet at the Saghalie Middle School campus in Federal Way on Saturdays from 9:30 AM - 1:00 PM during the school year (September - June).

On September 21, KSFW celebrated Chuseok, Korea’s Autumn Harvest Festival, with our school-wide songpyeon-making contest.
Each class submitted their own platter of beautifully handcrafted rice cakes for family members to admire and judge.
Special congratulations go out to the students of 사철나무반 (Sacheol-Namu Class), 버드나무반 (Bud-Namu Class), and 사과나무반 (Sagwa-Namu Class) for garnering the most votes!
KSFW also invited a samulnori percussionist troupe to lead our students in an energetic performance of the ganggangsullae harvest dance, another time-honored Chuseok tradition.
Our students had a rollicking good time (and a pretty decent workout to boot!) as they whirled hand in hand around the gymnasium floor.
We thank you all for sharing in this special holiday experience with KSFW!

Korean School of Federal Way is celebrating Chuseok, the Autumn Harvest Festival, on September 21, and you are invited to join us for the festivities!

Often likened to American Thanksgiving, Chuseok is a time for families to gather together, enjoy a delicious feast, and give thanks to their ancestors for a bountiful harvest.

Our students can look forward to participating in a school-wide songpyeon-making competition and the time-honored ganggangsullae harvest dance.

Those with traditional Korean hanbok attire are encouraged to dress for the occasion.

Family members are welcome to join us at 12:30 PM to sample the tasty songpyeon rice cakes and to cast their votes for the class that created the best-looking plate of songpyeon.

The Chuseok festival is one of our favorite KSFW traditions, and we hope that you can also share in this wonderful experience!
