The Ronald Reagan Great Communicator Debate Series was founded to develop engaged, informed, and conscientious citizen leaders by hosting a national series of high school debates. The debates search for students who can effectively use logic, evidence, and personality to communicate their ideas, just as Ronald Reagan did throughout his life. 

Competitors who qualify for the National Championship receive an all-expenses paid trip to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Southern California. The three day trip will include a private tour of the library, dinner under the wings of Air Force One, and a chance to meet an extraordinary group of young leaders.  The competitors will compete for his/her share of the $50,000 scholarship prize.

Engaging in civil discourse is a hallmark of American democracy, and this debate series encourages you to join the conversation on issues our country faces.

It takes courage to stand up for your beliefs. Some elected officials risk their careers to do what they believe is right for their community and country.

 

In Profiles in Courage, John. F. Kennery recounted the stories of eight U.S. Senators who put the nation's interest above their own. They were guided by integrity and conscience, not party pressure or fear of losing the next election.

 

Here's your chance to write the next profile in courage.

MTV’S “TRL” AND GET SCHOOLED TO AWARD $100,000 IN SCHOLARSHIPS

IN FIRST EVER “TUITION REQUEST LIVE”

 

Scholarship giveaway part of a larger Get Schooled campaign to raise awareness of the importance of early FAFSA completion to access financial aid

 

New York, NY – September 25, 2017 –  MTV’s “TRL” has partnered with Get Schooled to honor its audience in a historic way with the first ever, “Tuition Request Live,” a week-long initiative to award five $20,000 scholarships to help students offset the costs of undergraduate or graduate education. “TRL” premieres on Monday, Oct 2nd at 3:30 p.m. ET.

 

Beginning October 9th and throughout the week, celebrity guests from the worlds of music and pop culture will help MTV present scholarships to five deserving students, with one winning every day. The winners will be previously narrowed down from a pool of 15 finalists. Those 15 finalists will have posted Instagram stories telling MTV about themselves, their family and why they deserve a scholarship, in addition to answering a prompt in 250 words or less. The entry period is currently underway and closes on October 2nd. The entry form can be found on www.getschooled.com.

 

Students must be 14-24 to enter the contest and answer one of the following prompts:

  1. What cause would get you into the streets and why?
  2. What would you risk your life for?
  3. If you could hang out with three people dead or alive who would they be and why
  4. How do you feel about your last name?
  5. How much does your neighborhood define who you are?
  6. What are your secret survival strategies?
  7. What event in your life pushed you out of your comfort zone?

The scholarship giveaway will also raise awareness of the availability of the FAFSA beginning October 1.  According to the National College Access Network, 85% of all seniors who submit a FAFSA will receive some kind of financial aid.   92% of students from families making less than $50,000 a year receive grant money, which they do not have to make back.

 

“Young people consistently cite figuring out how to pay for college as a top stressor”, said Marie Groark, Executive Director of Get Schooled.  “Tuition Request Live will address that stress for five winners, but even more importantly allow us to inform students about how to access a wide range of aid that is available for them so that they make the college decisions that best suits them.”

 

Beginning with the launch of the contest, Get Schooled will offer:

 

  • Financial Aid Text Sessions:  Get Schooled will offer financial aid advice to prospective college students and their parents.  Students can text “college” to 335577 to have their questions answered.   A team of trained counselors will promptly answer text questions about  how to pay for college, how to fill out the form, and aid that might be available to them. 
  • Digital FAFSA Badge:  Get Schooled has developed a  digital badge that gives students guidance on how, when and why to complete a FAFSA.  Students who complete a badge can earn a Get Schooled college starter pack, including a Get Schooled notebook and pen.
  • Scholarship Assistance:  Get Schooled’s My College Dollars has more than 10,000 scholarships listed and is available to students at no cost.  Through a partnership with Scholarship Junkies, Get Schooled can also offer students 1:1 coaching on completing scholarship applications.
  • Shareable Content:  Get Schooled has developed several infographics that explain the FAFSA and helps students understand the process once their FAFSA has been completed.  Get Schooled and MTV will team up to share that content broadly through social and digital channels.

Leadership Enterprise for a Diverse America – LEDA – was founded in 2003 by Gary Simons, founder of New York City’s highly regarded Prep for Prep program. It is now the preeminent national nonprofit organization dedicated to diversifying the national leadership pipeline by helping high-achieving students from low-income backgrounds gain admission to our nation’s most selective colleges and supporting their success at these institutions.

 

Each year, we recruit a new cohort of LEDA Scholars – 100 qualified high school juniors who show leadership potential but lack the exposure and support they need to attend highly selective colleges. LEDA Scholars receive leadership training, writing instruction, standardized test preparation and a year of highly personalized guidance as they navigate the application and admissions process at the most competitive colleges. Throughout college and beyond, Scholars are offered ongoing advising, career counseling, postgraduate planning and community-building support to help them succeed and lead.

 

LEDA has been recognized as an emerging leader not only in the national effort to improve college access for low-income students but in the real difference we make for students once they get there. In 2014, we participated in the first White House Summit on College Opportunity for Low-Income Students – a recognition of the impact our distinct approach has on the success of our Scholars in college and far beyond.

 

The 2017-2018 LEDA application is now open. To start or continue your application, please click here.

To gain admission to the LEDA Scholars Program, students must complete a competitive application. The three-round process requires academic information and test scores, a personal statement and supplemental essay, a writing sample, biographical information, information on extracurricular activities, family financial information, and an interview for finalists.

Competitive applicants must meet particular eligibility and admission requirements. To learn more about the criteria, click here.

For more information about how to complete the application, visit our FAQ page. If you have any additional questions about LEDA’s recruitment and admissions process, please contact us at recruitment@ledascholars.org.

Application timeline:

  • September–December 2017: Interested applicants can begin and submit the LEDA Scholars application
  • December 12, 2017: Final submission deadline at 11:59 PM (PST)

Dear Parents,

 

I am writing to let you know of an incident that was reported this morning. Earlier today, we learned of an alleged sexual assault of one F. L. Schlagle’s student by another student. This assault was alleged to have taken place before students entered the school building. We take these allegations extremely seriously, and have referred them to the Kansas City, Kansas Police Department (KCKPD) for investigation and potential prosecution.  

 

In order to maintain the integrity of the process, we will not be able to comment on the incident until the KCKPD has completed their investigation. I do want to assure you that we take the safety and security of ALL students extremely seriously, and will continue to do everything within our power to keep Schlagle a safe environment for students.

 

Our goal is to make sure that we do everything necessary to keep students and staff at Schlagle safe. I wanted to communicate this information to you in a timely manner, in case you or your child had any questions.

 

Thank you for your support of Schlagle High School.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

 

Yolanda K. Thompson

Principal

Schlagle students, many of you have noticed we have a new 78” curved television in the commons area outside of the gymnasium.  The 50x2020 team that is working on improving the building worked hard to find the television for students.  Its purpose is to display announcements and good news.  Eventually it will be used to project events that are occurring in classrooms and the gymnasium.

 

I am sending you this message because it is disheartening to know that some students have already misused the television and have gotten out of classes to do so.  I believe that Schlagle students can handle this new equipment and behave maturely.  The teachers and I are working hard to update the school so that you have 21st century technology and other amenities that other schools and school districts have had for years.

 

So, I am asking that you do not touch or program the television.  Doing so would result in negative consequences (detentions, suspensions, etc.).  And this is not what Schlagle staff had in mind when we got the television for you.

 

Again, please do not touch or program the television.  We don’t want to remove the television because a few students refuse to follow rules.  That would not be fair to the majority of the student body.

 

Thank you for respecting your school and showing your stallion pride.

 

Mrs. Thompson

Estimados Padres de Familia,

Les quiero informar acerca de una situación que ocurrió hoy en la secundaria F.L. Schlagle.  La escuela recibió una llamada telefónica, en cual la persona que llamó hizo una amenaza contra la escuela.  Todos fueron evacuados mientras se evaluaba la amenaza; finalmente, se determinó, que no era una amenaza creíble.

 

Deben saber que CUALQUIER amenaza, contra una persona, edificio o cualquier otra cosa, grave o simplemente broma, nosotros,  la escuela y el distrito lo tomamos muy en serio. Información sobre amenazas serán compartidos inmediatamente con las autoridades policiales, y la persona que se encuentre amenazando tendrá serias consecuencias.

 

Este incidente presenta una excelente oportunidad para tener una discusión con su hijo sobre la importancia de la seguridad y normas escolares.  Todos tomemos la seguridad de la escuela muy en serio.

 

También es el momento para hablar sobre el uso del Internet responsable.  Los medios sociales y el Internet están disponibles a millones de televidentes.  Siempre es importante pensar antes de publicar algo, y saber que lo que se publica estará disponible para que lo vea el mundo.  Todos debemos pensar antes de publicar.

 

Continuáremos haciendo todo lo posible para que mantengamos un ambiente de aprendizaje seguro y protegido en F.L. Schlagle.

 

Si usted tiene alguna pregunta, por favor no dude en llamarme directamente o venir a la oficina de la escuela.

 

Sinceramente,

 

 

Yolanda Thompson

Directora

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I wanted to inform you of a situation that took place at F. L. Schlagle High School today. The school received a phone call, during which the caller made a threat against the school. The school was evacuated while the threat was assessed; ultimately, it was found to not be a credible threat.

 

While we don’t know whether any individual threat is serious or just a joke, it is important to understand that the school and the district take seriously ANY threat, against another person, building, or anything else. Information about any threats will immediately be shared with law enforcement authorities, and any individual found to be making a threat will face serious consequences.

 

This incident presents an excellent opportunity to have an open discussion with your child about the importance of school safety and school safety policies. It is important that we all take school safety very seriously.

 

This is also a time to discuss responsible internet usage and digital citizenship.  Social media and the internet are available to millions of viewers.  It is always important to think before you post anything, and to know that your posting will be readily available to the world.  We all must think before we post.

 

We will continue to do everything we can to provide a safe and secure learning environment here at F.L. Schlagle High School.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me, or come by the school office.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Yolanda Thompson

Principal

Are you interested in one of the design fields, but don't really know which one or what it entails? Here's your chance to find out!

 

Kansas City Design Discovery is a summer workshop for high school or college students interested in the design professions of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Interior Architecture/Product Design or Urban Planning/Design.

 

If you are considering studies in one of these design fields, this is your opportunity to find out more about what college and your eventual career might be like, as well as learning some great design fundamentals and design history. We'll also cover how to prepare for college now, what to look for in a collegiate design program, and more about the design program at University of Missouri-Kansas City and our unique partnership with Kansas State University.

 

This non-credit course is modeled after a collegiate architectural design seminar: students learn about the design fields through simple design projects, slideshows and discussions. We will also tour important design sites, like the Nelson-Atkins Museum, near our Kansas City campus. The program meets for four days, from 9am-3pm each day, with a break for lunch. It is held in Katz Hall (5005 Rockhill) on the campus of University of Missouri-Kansas City.
