11th GRADERS ONLY: Leadership for a Diverse America - Applications Available NOW!!!!

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)
  • December 2017–April 2018: Applications are reviewed by the Recruitment and Admissions team
    • Late February-March 2018: All applicants are notified about Part I of the process. Applicants moving on to Part II are asked to submit additional materials.
    • March 2018: All Part II applicants are notified and finalists are invited to participate in a video or phone interview.
    • April 2018: All remaining applicants are notified, and 100 LEDA Scholars are admitted to the LEDA Scholars Program.

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

New Television

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

CALLING ALL JUNIORS: Coolidge Scholars Program Application Available NOW!!!!!!!

The Coolidge Scholarship is among the most generous in America: it is a full-ride scholarship that covers a student's tuition, room, board, and expenses for four years of undergraduate study and leadership training. The scholarship is modeled in some ways after the well-known Morehead-Cain and Jefferson scholarships, but with the key distinction that "The Coolidge" can be used by recipients at any accredited U.S. university.

 

The scholarship program is administered by the Calvin Coolidge Presidential Foundation -- the official foundation dedicated to America's thirtieth president. The scholarship program launches this very year, and the first class of Coolidge Scholars will be named in spring 2016. The Foundation intends to select a minimum of two Coolidge Scholars in this inaugural class.

 

We would be most grateful if you would share this scholarship opportunity with your students. Current high school juniors are eligible to apply, and the deadline for submission is March 18th. The application is available on the website, which is attached. We encourage students to being the application process early. Unlike some other highly-competitive scholarships, there is no limit on the number of students who can apply from any single high school. Indeed, any student of any background, planning to pursue any academic discipline of study in college, may apply to this non-partisan, need-blind, program.

 

To become "a Coolidge" is a life-changing event! Please, feel free to contact Rushad Thomas with any questions: rthomas@coolidgefoundation.org or (802) 672-3389.

Air Force Academy Scholarship Opportunities

Below is information regarding the application process for the Air Force Academy for interested students. It really starts during the junior year, so please, if you are interested, read the information below.

 

Find an Admissions Advisor by Region

If you or your students have questions or want more information about the Air Force Academy, please contact your area's admissions advisor, as well as the Admissions Liaison Officer (ALO) who lives in your community for your school. You can find those contacts here.

 Click here for all the application steps and a link to a smart phone app checklist.

 

The Nomination Process

To be eligible to accept an offer of appointment to the Academy, applicants must be nominated by a legally authorized nominating entity. The process of securing a nomination is competitive and lengthy. It is recommended that students begin applying for a nomination at the same time that they are completing their Pre-Candidate Questionnaire.

Read more about Nominations to determine the categories for which your students are eligible, then they should contact their appropriate nominating authority to make their request. Students should request a nomination in all categories for which they are eligible, and do so as early as possible.

The deadlines of nominating sources vary and could be as soon as early September. Regardless of when they initiate their process, nomination's must be received by the Academy no later than January 31. As a reminder, the application processes and deadlines are separate for the nominations processes and deadlines.

During a Student's Junior Year

Junior year is when the application process to the Academy truly begins. Students will start by filling out the Pre-Candidate Questionnaire, which becomes available online March 1 every year and starts the application process.

Between March 1 of their junior year and December 31 of their senior year, they must submit a completed Pre-Candidate Questionnaire. When a student is ready to begin the application, they can visit the Pre-Candidate Questionnaire online.

Between March 1 of their junior year and December 31 of their senior year, they must also request nominations from their state’s congressional representative(s) or other designated nominators.

NOTE: As with any top university, competition for admission to the Academy is extremely high. In addition to applying to the Academy, their college application strategy should include a backup plan. To pursue an interest in the Air Force, they may also wish to request and submit an application for Air Force ROTC.

Who do Students Talk to?

On select dates throughout the year, representatives from the United States Air Force Academy participate in college fairs, visit high schools or speak at community centers across the nation. These events are great opportunities to learn more about what the Academy has to offer.

The majority of our events are held in the fall and spring, with fewer events in the summer months. To learn more about the Academy, check for an event that may be convenient to you and your students.

The United States Air Force Academy strives to create a highly qualified and truly diverse cadet wing at the Academy each year. We are looking to expand our applicant pool across individual characteristics defined by our diversity definition, that include:

  • Personal life experiences, including having overcome adversity by personal efforts
  • Geographic background, such as region, rural, suburban, urban
  • Socioeconomic and educational background, such as academic excellence and/or whether an individual would be a first generation college student
  • Cultural knowledge and language abilities, with particular emphasis on cultures and languages of strategic importance to the Air Force
  • Work background, including prior enlisted service
  • Physical abilities, including athletic prowess
  • Age, though applicants must be within statutory parameters for academy attendance

In addition to race, ethnicity, and gender. If you have a student who comes from a diverse background in terms of race, ethnicity, or gender, or if their background includes diverse experiences, knowledge or abilities, if they seek an education that is on par with highly selective colleges and universities, and have a desire to service, please have them consider the United States Air Force Academy and become familiar with our application process and admissions requirements. One of our admissions goals is to ensure that students are aware of the opportunities at your United States Air Force Academy.  USAFA Admissions hires newly graduated USAF officers responsible to admissions, outreach and mentoring activities. These admissions advisors are dedicated to spreading the word about their Academy experience, education and the opportunities afforded by the United States Air Force Academy.

Summer Programs

 

Summer Seminar: Summer Seminar offers a unique opportunity to experience the Air Force Academy first-hand. It is specially designed for high school juniors heading into their senior year to get a realistic perspective of cadet life. Students will live in the dormitories, eat at the Academy’s dining facility, explore the various academic/military programs and courses that the Academy has to offer, and participate in a variety of different physical fitness activities (to include a practice CFA). The application is open from 1 December 2015 to 15 January 2016, and it is free to apply. There are two sessions: 12-17 June 2016 and 19-24 June 2016. Student may apply here.

 

STEM Engineering and Construction Camp: This camp is designed to provide high school students with a world-class experience in STEM skills following a "Build the Design" model. This one week program is supervised and led by engineers and located at the U.S. Air Force Academy. The program runs from 7-13 July 2016. Learn more information or apply now.

 

Summer Sports Camps: We offer Summer Falcon Sports Camps for student 8 to 18 who want to participate in numerous sports and are led by our very own head coaches! Click here for additional information.

Campus Tours

 

If you have students who are interested in pursuing an appointment to the United States Air Force Academy and plan to visit the campus, they may wish to participate in an escorted tour and admissions briefing. Offered during the academic year to middle school, high school, and post-high school students, tours can help individuals gain a deeper understanding of the AF Academy environment. Escorted tours are conducted Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays during the academic year. Generally starting the first week of September through mid-May, we require reservations 14 days in advance. We also offer Game Day tours. After the tour participants will be allowed to purchase discounted tickets to cheer on our AF Falcons for football, hockey, and men’s and women’s basketball. For more on available dates for both tours, please go here or call 1-800-443-3864.

Schlagle Class of 1980 Reunion

F.L. Schlagle High School 35 Year Reunion

Reunion Coordinator: Ann Burgin

 

Posted by: Yolanda Thompson Published:6/18/15
Audience: Homepage and Homepage


Important Message

May 11, 2015

Dear Parents,

On Friday, two current F. L. Schlagle students and a former student were involved in an automobile accident. One of the current students died, and the other occupants of the car were seriously injured. Though the names of the victims have been widely shared via social media, the family has asked that the names of those involved be kept private, and we are respecting the family’s wishes. The next few days will be an extremely difficult time for the family of the students, and for the family here at Schlagle.

Death is always difficult to handle, but particularly so when someone so young passes away. It will be important to recognize that all of us will need time to process what has happened, and to express our feelings. Your child may struggle to make sense of this death. Please encourage your child to express their feelings, and be there to talk with them about what has happened.

At the same time, it is important to understand that there will be many details that we do not know. Your child will hear many different things, but please encourage them not to make guesses and spread rumors. Again, the family has asked for privacy as they struggle to handle their grief, and the administration is asking everyone to respect their privacy.

For the next several days, the District Crisis Team, along with the school counselor, will be available to talk with anyone who is struggling to handle their emotions around this difficult issue. If your child would like to talk with someone, please encourage them to let an adult know, and we will help them.

Again, there are many questions that we cannot answer, but we can be here to support each other during this difficult time.

Sincerely,

 

Yolanda Thompson

Principal

Schlagle Family Support Information

Dear students,

 

You may be aware of a tragedy that took place this afternoon that has impacted the Schlagle family. Four young people, three of whom have a Schlagle connection, were involved in a car accident. All were critically injured, and one has died. We will not release the names of the victims until we are certain that parents have been informed, but understand that many have already learned that information through social media.

 

This information comes as a terrible shock, and many of us may struggle to understand what has happened, and why, and to manage our feelings. In order to provide support for students and staff who need it, the District Crisis Team will be at Schlagle high school tomorrow, Saturday, May 9, 2015 from 11 am – 2 pm, in order to provide support for anyone who needs it.

 

Meanwhile, please avoid the temptation to join in the on-line conversation about what has happened, and why. When a tragedy like this happens, it is tempting to speculate about the situation, what happened, and who is to blame. Often, the things we hear at the beginning of a tragedy like this turn out not to be true, and we want to avoid spreading rumors that turn out not to be true.

 

This is a painful moment in the life of the Schlagle community, and I know that many of you are suffering. I urge you to consider coming up to the school tomorrow at 11 am to receive support from the District Crisis Team, and from your fellow students. Please let me know if you have any questions, and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

 

Sincerely

 

 

 

Yolanda Thompson

Community Service Opportunity - YOUR Help is Requested

Pastor Rowan of First Baptist Church located at 500 Nebraska Ave, KCK 66101 has offered an opportunity to ALL students and anyone willing to help. 

This church is a Harvesters site every 2nd Saturday of each month and they need more bodies to help load cars and assist people with their goods.  They meet from 9:00am -2:00pm on those Saturdays, and he said that any time that any students or anyone can give would be incredibly helpful.  He will sign off for any student who shows up so they can record their community service hours.

The end of the school year is fast approaching and some of you need hours for NHS or to repair laptops. All of us need to learn to give back to our community, and this is a great way to do so. 

Please pass this information on to any interested persons and get out and help!!!!

Truman State University Summer Program (Grades 7-9)

The Joseph Baldwin Academy offers highly talented students a head start on their future university careers by allowing them to spend three weeks as college freshmen: they move into a residence hall, adapt to living with a roommate, eat dorm food, make new friends, attend classes, and work with Truman State's faculty. We believe that many middle school and junior high students are not being challenged in the classroom in their home schools. The primary goal of the Academy is that our students leave with an increased appreciation for the pleasures of education, intellectual engagement, and the college experience. Along the way we expect that they will grow both academically and socially as they interact with other high-ability students from across the country.

Battle of the Brains

Want to design the next Science City Museum Exhibit?logo.png

Come join one of Schlagle's Battle of the Brains teams.  We are looking for some creative minds to Schlagle win the Burns & McDonnell Battle of the Brains competition.

What is it?  Battle of the Brains is a design competition pitting middle & high school students against each other to design the best exhibit for Science City.

How does it work?  Students design an exhibit in one of 3 areas: Human Health/Biomedical, Sustainability, or Transportation. 

Why should we do it? 

  • All teams in the top 10 get grants for their school, and the winning team gets to work with the engineers from Burns & McDonnell to see their idea built as the next new exhibit at Science City.
  • All teams get a trip to Science City funded by Burns & McDonnell to get ideas about the available space and exhibits already in place
  • Get to work with a dedicated engineer or architect as a team mentor
  • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) fields are among the fastest growing occupations, and tend to have higher average salaries

 OK, now I'm curious: Anyone who is interested is welcome.  We need to set teams by September 6th, so if you think you might even be a little bit interested come see what it is about.  Our next meeting is Thursday, September 5th in Room 226 at 2:30pm

Still have questions?  See the Battle of the Brains website to explore a bit more about competition http://battleofthebrainskc.com/

We have an opportunity to speak up and tell our county leaders that we are deserving of and are in need of a state-of-the-art public swimming facility built in Kansas City, KS.  So that all citizens living in the heart of KCK can access the water park/aquatics center, it is being proposed that the facility be built where the former Indian Springs Mall presently stands. 

If you are at least 18 years-old, please visit the link below to complete the petition and please share it with your parents, guardians, family members and friends in the community to complete.  Be a voice to a cause that has the potential to make an impact on our community and future generations of KCK citizens and stake holders!

ACT Test Information for Junior Students

 

Dear Parents of Schlagle 11th Grade Students: 
The Schlagle High School junior class will take the ACT test on Tuesday morning, April 24th at Schlagle.  This is now the required state assessment for all juniors in the Kansas City Kansas School District, and every junior in the district will be taking the test on April 24th at their respective schools.  In addition to being the state assessment, this ACT exam is also important because it counts for college admission, and scholarships can be awarded based on high ACT scores. Usually students desiring to take the ACT must pay a fee, but the district is paying the fee for our students this time.
We have arranged other enrichment activities for the 9th, 10th, and 12th graders so the juniors will have the optimal quiet environment to do their best.  The ACT has other requirements which all students and teachers must observe:
 <>1)2)3)Photo identification is required to be admitted to the testing rooms.   
Please do what you must to ensure that your students are here on time and in the right mindset to do their best work.  It is recommended that students get a full night’s sleep the night before the test as well as several nights before.  It is also recommended that students eat a full, nutritious breakfast the morning of the exam.  The test is long, and there will be one short break with a minimal snack.  
 
Your students have worked very hard to get to this point in their education, and this is their opportunity to show what they can do.  We appreciate your help in creating the best conditions for them to excel!
 
Sincerely,
Dr. Maritza Paul-Newby, F. L. Schlagle Principal

NO LONGER A BLACK & WHITE MOON!

Recent advances in technology and planetary science have advanced our understanding of the Moon. We now know that water is present on the Moon.  Closer inspection of the apparent black or gray surface materials indicates that presence of a variety of minerals.  What processes formed them? Might we compare them to similar events on Earth? Could we live there?

 

Talk to your teachers and maybe get some credit for attending, taking notes and getting the notes stamped by Science Pioneers for verification.

Anti-Bullying Discusion Board - For BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL ONLY!!!!

Yesterday's film Bullied: A Student, A School and a Case that Made History was about way more than just the bullying of homosexual students. It was a film about bullying in schools and the very detrimental affects such bullying can cause individuals. No matter whether you realize it or not: bullying DOES happen and it DOES hurt people.

Consider the following quotation from the movie. Write a response on what it means in the context of the film and in relation to one or more of these themes: discrimination, courage, empathy and justice.

 

Mrs. Podlesny said that ‘boys will be boys’, and that if Jamie was going to act so openly gay he had to expect this stuff to happen to him.

-       Carol Rosin, Jamie’s Mother
