FSE's second annual Carnival Night was a blast, especially with the new addition of The Haunted Hallway. Despite its rough start, the hallway was a success. There were some brave souls who dared to face their nightmares! People who ventured in this area screamed in fear, cried, or even had to regain their composure. As for what the people thought, they exclaimed the following:
“It was good!” “You scared the baby!” “I’m going through there again!” and many other positive comments. All of these participants found The Haunted Hallway a pefect addition to the carnival.

If you've been wondering when cheerleading starts at FSE, the wait is over. The first meeting for cheerleading practice was November 4th. If you're interested in being on the squad, you must have your physical turned in before you can practice. Also, your discipline and grades need to be on point to be a cheerleder. If you have more than 15 DPS, you're not allowed to participate until you meet the requirement. As for grades, if you failed two or more classes first quarter or second semester of last year, you cannot be on the squad. The next practice for the team is Thursday, November 7.

The administrators at FSE want to recognize all Falcons for a job well done. One way they're doing that this year is with dress downs. In November, students will have several opportunities to show that FREE DRESS IS BEST. Every Friday school is in session in November is a dress down day. Students will be recognized for earning all A's and B's on their report card; achieving 30 or more PRS points while maintaining 0 DPS; acceptance to a 4 year university; and, a 95% attendance rate or better. If you're not quite there on some of the requirements, you still have time. The first dress down of the month is Friday, November 1.
UMKC law students invited some Falcons to visit the campus and learn more about what it is they do. Ms. May’s government and world history classes had the opportunity to attend courses made just for them. It was a first time experience for our Falcons -- they traveled to different rooms to learn about constitutional law, the bill of rights, and police practices. “It was inspiring,” said junior Jordan J. “ I got to learn a lot of things I didn’t know. I’ve already decided to change my major and go into pre-law then law school. I held a conversation with an aspiring lawyer, now she's my mentor. Now we’re scheduled to have dinner Sunday to start discussing my path. I’m thankful for the opportunity.” The "Street Law" field trip ended with a panel discussion with practicing attorneys and current law students.
