AP BioPsych Bundle visits Marquette University
The students in the AP BioPsych Bundle had the pleasure visiting Marquette University for two purposes: experience the Gross Anatomy Lab and participate in a Neuroscience presentation.

We were fortunate to be the first school group of the spring session to get into the Gross Anatomy Lab.  Marquette students were busy preparing the cadavers for their presentations this morning and the HUHS AP BioPsych students were the first of about 4000 students that will visit this spring.  With a small group of students, the presenters were able to give a very in-depth explanation of the nervous system, a knee replacement surgery, upper arm anatomy as well as heart and gastrointestinal anatomy.

Each student was able to touch the cadavers and get a first hand look inside the body of a human.  Out of respect for the humans that donated their bodies to this kind of scientific inquiry, no pictures are allowed.

The second part of the visit included an interactive presentation by Dr. SuJean Choi.  As a professor of Neuroscience, Dr. Choi gave a personalized presentation about the intricacies of the nervous system.  She was able to take our student's base knowledge and connect up their interests to multiple case studies.  Students learned about neurological degeneration, language, vision, hallucinations and more. Dr. Choi had a wonderful ability to engage students with her knowledge, video clips of case studies as well as getting students up and involved.

We are already looking forward to getting back to Marquette University next year!

PIN Presentation Promotion

Holly Oleshko, school counselor at HUHS, and Tara Villalobos, Holy Hill Area School District Administrator, met with the Morning Blend to discuss a recent Parent Information Network (PIN) event to help parents learn how to stay connected to their kids as they grow in an online environment and with today's current issues. This event, with renowned speaker Michael McGowan, took place April 25 at Hartford Union High School in the Drama Lecture Hall.

Poetry Workshop with Milwaukee Author Dasha Kelly
A nationally-respected writer, artist and social entrepreneur, Kelly challenged our students to realize the transformative power of their words. On Wednesday, April 25th, Ms. Kelly worked with over 400 staff and students throughout the day, mesmerizing the audience with her spoken word poetry and message of empowerment.  Many staff and students alike remarked that she was one of the best presenters they have heard.

The 2018 HUHS SMART Team traveled to San Diego last week where they shared their findings of SRSF2, an important RNA splicing factor that helps regulate the expression of a number of genes. The most interesting thing about this splicing factor is that it will bind to two different genetic sequences. Scientists are currently investigating this protein further as a potential drug target for cancer treatments. Congrats to our SMART Team!  #huhsproud

Starting Friday, April 27th, students can try chef-made samples of new recipes in the cafeteria. HUHS's Foodservice  Department has started a campaign to give select menu items an upgrade by focusing on minimally processed, locally sourced, clean label ingredients. The Foodservice Department is partnering with chefs from Sustainable Kitchens, a Milwaukee based company who work with schools, hospitals, and other large kitchens to do more scratch cooking with locally sourced ingredients. Every Friday during resource hour, chefs will have a table with samples for students to try free of charge, as long as they to fill out a survey afterwards. If the samples are popular, the menu items will be served during regular lunch periods. The sample sessions will run through May.
Day of Service Donations Needed

One of the Day of Service activities will be making Journey Bracelets for cancer patients.  If you have old beads or jewelry you no longer need, please consider donating them for this project, it would be greatly appreciated.
Hartford Square I is also looking for DVD movies for their seniors to enjoy.  Some of the students on the Day Of Service will organize these DVD movies and get them ready for the seniors to enjoy.

Freshmen and Sophomores: will be taking the state-mandated ACT Aspire test on  May 2nd. Students are expected to report at  7:25 like a normal day. The ACT Aspire will be done on students' laptops. 


On Wednesday, May 2, our junior class will experience the event "Focus On Connections". The juniors will spend half of their day touring local businesses, and the other half simulating a  month of financial responsibilities of their future 27 year old self. This simulation represents a reality check in the time of life when they would be 10 years out of high school. The juniors chose a career, as well as how many children they will have. They take their given salary and work their way through "stations", set up in our field house, of life financial needs and choices, such as housing, transportation, insurance, utility/medical bills, recreation expenses, etc. To top off this great event, our Culinary III students prepare a delicious lunch for our community volunteers.  

Opposite our Focus on Connections event is the junior business tours. We are fortunate to have several different Hartford and West Bend businesses volunteer to host our students for the other half of their day. UW-Washington County & Moraine Park Technical College are also providing tours.  All juniors will be at the high school for their lunch and all will be back by 2:40 to ride the bus home. All tours will have HUHS staff accompanying the students at all times. While it is impossible to set up business tours for every career area that students are interested in, the local businesses will discuss all of the various career areas they offer as well as general employer expectations.  

It is an exciting day and a fantastic experience for the junior class!

Just a reminder that BOTH of these events are part of the Financial Literacy graduation requirement.

Do not need to report to school on May 2

Rotary Host Families Needed for 2018-2019 
Hartford Rotary's next inbound exchange student will arrive in late August, and be with us, and be a student at Hartford High, until early summer 2019.  We will be lucky to host 17 year old Monika Adamczyk from Chelm in eastern Poland.  Besides being fluent in English she is competent in Spanish.  We would like to get commitments from three families in the Hartford area, each to host her for 3 to 4 month.  Rotary pays a monthly stipend to help Monika have some spending money, and the school chips in with lunch money.  Ask your family if they would like to have this fun and educational opportunity, while providing Monika with the same  opportunities.as other young adults in the home.  

Monika is now a sophomore at a Lyceum in Chelm, which is near the Ukrainian border.  She is the only youngster at home weekdays, and her studies emphasize chemistry, biology, Spanish, English and Polish language and literature.  Her older sister studies in Wroclaw and is home weekends.  The sisters get along well and with their parents emphasize the outdoors with hiking, biking and sailing.  She thinks she might like to study dentistry or orthodontology in college, but thinks a year in the US will open up other opportunities for careers related to medicine.  She's fine with household chores, says she is neat and tidy, but isn't into cooking.   She will be a great addition to any receptive family in the area.

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.

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.  The test dates for the 2017-2018 school year are:
June 9, 2018                                     July 14, 2018

Hartford Soccer Girls Beat East, 7-0

In the 30th minute, Hartford Union's one-goal lead quickly turned into a three-goal advantage. That one-minute stretch propelled the Orioles to a 7-0 victory against West Bend East on Tuesday during a North Shore Conference game. Olivia Carroll scored in the first five minutes to give the Orioles (2-0-1, 1-0-1 NSC) an early lead. Then in the 30th, Julia Stephans converted a penalty kick. East goalkeeper Sunshine Prost stopped it initially with a dive, but the ball then hit the ground and rolled away from her. It slowly trickled into the goal before she could reach it. Forty seconds later, Skylar Garza found Savannah Ott, who finished off the pass for a 3-0 edge. "We created our goals tonight," Hartford Union coach Kevin Martin said. "Those goals were scored on possessions or dead balls."  Click  here to read the full article.
