Student Council @ Work

STUCO is starting up strong this year! There’s lots of students dedicated to making this year the best one yet for FSE. Hillary G. (12), President of Student Council, said, “For this year, I envision this group getting out into the community and giving more to the school. I also want to set a higher standard for the upcoming student council committee. Everyone will recognize the effort the students put into this school.” Let’s see what student council will unveil for us in the future, Falcons! Emmanuel S. (11), Vice President of Student Council, stated, “I think it’s important because students need to be heard and we can help to improve the school.” Student council’s first major event of the year is the upcoming Spooktober Night! It's set for Saturday, October 26. There will be food, prizes, games, and a costume contest! Admission is free, but there will be a 50 cent per ticket charge. Doors open at 6:00 PM!

E-League Sports Club

If you think you're good at competitive video games, now's your chance to show off your skills! Mr.Holmes is leading FSE's high school E-league team. He's very excited to be sponsoring this club. He says the club will be useful for people who want to know the technical side of gaming in addition to the entertainment they provide. Mr. Holmes wants people who want to work as a team and learn different tactics so they can grow as a team. "I'm interested in seeing if we can put a good League of Legends team together because I see a lot of strategic value in that game that I love to see people work on," Mr. Holmes said. The club meetings should start this month and will be held every Monday after school from 2:30-4:30.

Order Your Yearbook Now!

HEY FALCONSSS! This year FSE will make it easier for you to buy your yearbook. If you want to get your hands on a yearbook, you have the opportunity to make payments instead of paying for it all at once. You have the chance to pay a $10 down payment, $10 before the semester ends, and $10 at the end of 3rd quarter -- for a total of $30. “This is a good idea because it allows all students ... to have a chance to buy a yearbook,” said Michael E. (6). And for seniors -- if you order your senior shout out and yearbook at the same time, you will get a $5 discount! You can purchase your yearbook with cash, check, or a credit card. For more information contact Ms.Bates.

Already Accepted!

We're only a few weeks into the new school year, but some of our seniors already know where they might go to college! So far, three seniors have been accepted to schools in and out of Missouri. Anahi R. and Lailyn T. have been accepted to Wartburg College in Iowa -- and both have received $100,000 scholarships! Lailyn has also been accepted to Missouri Western State University and Northwest Missouri State University. Lailyn said, "My mom started bawling! She doesn't think it's possible to be accepted to three colleges in one week. I'm the first one in my family to go to college, so it's a big deal." Lailyn is still debating which one to choose, but will focus on which one has the best nursing program. Xavier H. has been accepted to Wichita State University. Congratulations to all three of these fabulous Falcons!

SuperSTAR Senior!

100K!!! Is walking right beside you!! Senior Anahi Ruiz earned a scholarship worth $100,000 over four years to Wartburg College, a private college in Iowa. But this wasn’t an easy achievement. It came from hard work, dedication, and passion. She applied for a Knights priority status and because she has a GPA of more than 3.5, is in the top 25% of her class, and is involved in extracurriculars, she was awarded the scholarship. Hillary Gonzalez sat down with Anahi to find out her plans for the future.

Q: What was your reaction?
A: I was very excited because it was a ton of money and I never saw that much money in a scholarship before.

Q: What are you planning to study?
A: I’m planning to study astronomy. It is my absolute passion. I’ve been studying it so much -- I even took college classes at 16 years old. I wanted to take more, but I couldn't so this is a new road that is going to allow me to study astronomy.

Q: What is your Inspiration?
A: My inspiration is curiosity. I want to know what is out there; I want to be one of the people that discovers big things! Ijust want to be a big person in astronomy.

Q: What were some of your hardships?
A: One of my hardships was people giving me doubt because a lot of people thought, “Astronomy?” That’s not usually what a girl would do, but I want to do big things, so I’m going to reach for big things and this scholarship is big!

Q: Who helped you reach this goal?
A: My older brother always told me, “You are the only solution to the problem. You are the only one that can fix that problem.” So, I have to fix my own problems and I have to be the one to give me a push when nobody is there.

Q: Do you have a message to girls who are doubting their abilities?
A: To other girls who want to work on science or mathematics or physics or whatever -- just go for it! If anyone doubts you, be like me: don't care what they say! If they have doubts, just prove them wrong. You have to represent out there.

Q: What would you say to those who want to apply for a scholarship?
A: If you believe you can get a scholarship, by all means go for it. You can get lots or little bits of money, but it’s still support. Do whatever it takes…it doesn't matter if you are a girl, just go for it. It doesn't matter what gender you are.
