S.T.E.A.M. Alive and Well at HUHS!!!
Since Quarter 2, Freshman Cohort and Honors English 9 classes were granted the opportunity to study an American scientific literary classic: Rachel Carson's lyrically erudite  Silent Spring .  Students formed collaborative teams and used Carson's text as a springboard to research a variety of historical, medical, and scientific topics.  This past  Monday , thirty students presented their research platforms and findings to their peers at UW-Madison's Discovery Center as part of The Great Texts Consortium.  Eight projects of those hundreds submitted were designated winners.  HUHS Freshmen Valerie Biddulph, Ella Merklein, and Irene Wilson won recognition for their research and presentation on Energy Conservation and Kinetic Tiles.  Great effort by all staff and students involved!

Wisconsin Online Youth Risk Behavior Survey
Our students are taking part in the Wisconsin Online Youth Risk Behavior Survey sponsored by Well Washington County this spring.  The survey will be administered at HUHS between April 30 and May 2. The survey will ask about behaviors that result in unintentional and intentional injuries, tobacco use, and alcohol and other drug use.  There will be questions about sexual behaviors that may result in HIV infection, other sexually transmitted diseases, and unwanted pregnancies. Moreover, there will be questions on dietary behavior and physical activity.

Students will be asked to fill out a computer-based questionnaire that takes about 25 minutes to complete.  The survey has been designed to protect your child's privacy. Students will not put their names on the survey. Also, no class or student will ever be mentioned by name in a report of the results.

The survey assists state and local education and health agencies in monitoring and assessing characteristics of school health education; physical education and physical activity; school health policies related to HIV infection/AIDS, tobacco-use prevention, bullying and sexual harassment; nutrition and health services; school health coordination; and family and community involvement in school health programs. Data from the survey is used to improve school health programs. To read parent and student frequently asked questions, click here .  To view the Well Washington County YRBS survey, click here .  

We would like all students to take part in the survey, but the survey is voluntary . No action will be taken against you, or your child, if your child does not take part. Students can skip any question they do not wish to answer. In addition, students may stop participating in the survey at any point without penalty..  If you do not want your child to participate, please complete and return the   Passive Parental Permission Form to Hartford Union High School's Student Services Office.  If you have any further questions about the survey, please call Mike Corrie, Director of Student Services, or Patti Christel, School Social Worker at 262-670-3214.

AP BioPsych Bundle Presentation
ITOP Press Release

This past  Friday  AP Psychology teacher Terry Wick and AP Biology teacher Kevin Martin had the opportunity to travel to Iowa and present at the Iowa Teachers of Psychology conference.  While the conference focuses on teachers from Iowa, there were also guests from Wisconsin, Ohio, Illinois, and Louisiana.

The two HUHS teachers presented The AP BioPsych Bundle: Shaping Hearts and Minds.  The presentation focused on the collaboration involved in this multidisciplinary course, the use of project-based learning methods, and the incorporation of lab-based learning in both AP Biology and AP Psychology.

The presentation was well received by high school teachers and college professors alike, but it was summed up best by one professor in particular.

Nationally recognized educator and author, Charles Blair-Broeker stated, "It is obvious you two have a passion for your teaching. This is exactly the kind of program I want to learn more about. This is a great combination of courses.  When can I come visit your classroom?" Charles has been teaching Psychology at the high school and collegiate level for over 35 years. He has written multiple books on the subject and even has a national Teachers of Psychology Award named after him.  It was an honor just to have him present in the room for the breakout session.

Finally, members that are elected to the Wisconsin FBLA State Leadership Team are the voice of our student membership at the State level of FBLA and are an important part of the program development, event planning and membership recruitment activities throughout the year.  This year Hartford FBLA member Marley Kreger was elected to serve as the Wisconsin FBLA 2018-2019 State President.  Congratulations Marley!

UW Campus Regional Placement Testing

Senior students who have been admitted to a UW campus are invited to participate in Regional Placement Testing. As a result of taking the tests, students find out their appropriate level of math, English, and foreign language to begin in college.
Students can register online for Regional Placement Testing, beginning February 1. The benefit of Regional Placement Testing is that students can take the test close to where they live, and they don't need to travel to the campus that they'd like to attend. Also, students need register for only one placement test even if they have been admitted to different UW campuses, or if they change their mind about which UW campus to attend. All UW campuses have access to each student's scores.

Early College Credit Program (ECCP)

The 2017-19 State of Wisconsin Biennial Budget included new language regarding high school students who take courses for college credit. The budget combines the Course Options and Youth Options programs into a single new program called the Early College Credit Program (ECCP).
High school students at public and private high schools may be permitted to enroll in a UW System institution, or an alternative private, non-profit institution of higher education to take courses to earn high school credit, post-secondary credit, or both. Course costs are shared among the school district/private school and the state (and in some cases, the student's family). 
Students in grades  9-12 may be eligible to take courses during the fall, spring, or summer semesters. Students may submit their completed forms to school officials by  March 1 for summer/fall semester - or  October 1for spring semester.
For more information, contact your child's counselor.

ACT TESTING - 2017-18

All students considering a two or four-year college experience are reminded to take the ACT test during their junior year.  Students can register for the ACT at www.actstudent.org. When registering, students will need the HUHS school code, which is 500-850.   Please remember to check the website to see if the college(s) your son or daughter is considering requires or recommends the ACT writing test.   The test fee for the ACT is $46.00 and the ACT with writing is $62.50.   If you feel you cannot afford the test fee, please ask your child's counselor if you are eligible for a fee waiver. 
HUHS is an ACT test center for all testing dates (except February 10).  The test dates for the 2017-2018 school year are:
April 14, 2018                                     June 9, 2018                                     July 14, 2018
Note:   Please keep in mind all juniors are required by state law to take the ACT at the high school on February 27 (no cost to the student on February 27).    When considering whether or not to sign up to take the February 10 or April 14 ACT, it may be best for students to take the February 27 test, then decide whether or not to retake the test in June or July based upon February results.

Athletics and Activities
Baseball Preview
Hartford Union returns four all-conference players this season, led by senior third baseman Blake Lazaris, who was a first-team All-Wisconsin Little Ten Conference selection a season ago.  Seniors Myles Zimdars (RF), and Zach Braun (C) and junior Scott Savage (OF) also return. Zimdars and Braun made second team, while Savage was third team. Rounding out the returning starters are seniors Nick Vogel (SS) and Garret Thomas (OF/P).  Other returning letterwinners for third-year coach Eric Vanden Acker are seniors Zach Lutz (P), George Trawitzki (P) and Bobby Crandall (OF).  "This returning experience should result in a team that has a strong offensive approach at the plate and will be able to score runs against quality pitching," Vanden Acker said. "Defensively, we have nearly all positions returning from a team that was strong up the middle. We will have to find a group of starting pitchers that can step up and keep us in games."  The Orioles went 10-14 and finished in the middle of the pack of the WLT with an 8-8 conference record.  Outside of Thomas, Lutz and Crandall, there are some more arms in a group of 10 newcomers.  "There were valuable varsity innings gained last year by some pitchers, and that experience will hopefully go a long way in determining the success of our team this season," Vanden Acker said.  The newcomers are Jake Weston, Cody Werner, Zach Brewer, Lucas Simon, Dion Miszewski, Trent Birkel, Brock Burg, Nick Balmer, Zach Siebenlist and Nick Bieganski.
  Hartford Union's Myles Zimdars was a All-Wisconsin Little Ten Conference second team selection last season as junior outfielder.  Daily News
Hartford Girls Soccer Opens Season with Victory!
The Hartford Union girls soccer team earned a shutout in its first game of the season with a 2-0 win against Mukwonago on Tuesday The game was originally scheduled to be a home game for the Orioles, but the wintry weather moved the game to Mukwonago.  Maddie Hoxworth and Kayla Okla each scored in the first half for Hartford.  "The goals for the Orioles were well earned tonight," Hartford coach Kevin Martin said. "Kayla played a low ball into Maddie with her back to the goal just outside of the Mukwonago goal box. Hoxworth took the ball to her right, creating just enough space for a shot.  "She hit a low skipping shot in past the Mukwonago  keeper."  Each player also assisted on the other's goal.  "Hoxworth took a corner from the left side. She played a low ball to the near post. Okla made a direct run in and redirected the ball past the Mukwonago keeper on the near post," Martin said. "We worked on this the night before in practice. It is so great to see how the girls are transitioning from practice to game so early in the season."  Martin said each side had its opportunities to score in the first half, but the cold, rainy and windy weather diminished those chances in the second half. The Orioles outshot the Indians, 8-7.  Maddy Sieczkowski made fives saves for the Orioles.
