Strategic Plan Survey

Be a part of the future! Take the survey!
 
Dear HUHS Stakeholder,
 
The District has begun a Strategic Plan process, which will produce 3 - 5 goals for the next 3 years. The process involves a Strategic Plan Team (SPTeam) of 30 stakeholder groups' representatives, who will review District data, participate in focus group listening sessions, and then develop the goals. The Board of Education has directed the process to be completed no later than December 2017, for implementation of the goals from January 2018 - December 2020.
 
Part of the data collection is a survey that we invite you and strongly encourage you to take. While it is a brief survey, there are opportunities for written input, as well. We need to hear from our entire school District community, so that the SPTeam can be best informed as it develops the goals.
 
Please be a part of the future by participating through the link on our website.  Please click here.  

Thank you, and thank you for supporting the education of our community's most important and valued assets - our kids!
 
 
Sincerely,
 
Attila J. Weninger, Ph.D., Superintendent

Click here to see the senior photos that have been submitted.

Senior Photo Requirements 
  • Senior pictures are due November 1, 2017. Photos not turned in by this deadline will result in a $25.00 fine. Photos received after November 15, WILL NOT BE PUBLISHED in the 2017-18 yearbook
  • Please email one digital file of your photograph to yearbook@huhs.org. It must be at least 2x3 inches at 300dpi. If you cannot send a digital file, we can digitize it, but this will reduce the quality from the original. Please name your file with your last name, _ , then your first name (example: doe_john.jpg). File types can be .jpg or .tiff
  • DO NOT SEND IN a screenshot of your senior picture from your photographer, if at all possible, have your photographer send the photo to prevent losing any quality!
  • Photos must be vertical color prints, with  no pets, no hats, and have a simple background. Dress needs to be school appropriate. Remember, the pictures in our yearbook are small, so ideally the photo should show just the head and shoulders. We want to maximize your face size.
  • Many local photographers have these deadlines and may the send the photo for you if you ask. Please understand that your photographer will need probably 6 weeks or more to get photos done. This means you should have your pictures taken by the middle of September to get them done with enough time to spare.
  • We cannot accept prints from a Laser or inkjet home computer printer.
Any students who do not turn in senior pictures will have their HUHS school picture published in the yearbook.

Some News from Activities & Athletics
HUHS Receives Safe Sports School Award on Behalf of Athletic Training Program

CONGRATULATIONS to our HUHS Athletic Training Department who earned our school the title of a Safe Sports School by the National Athletic Trainers Association. 

The award champions safety and recognizes secondary schools that provide safe environments for student athletes. The award reinforces the importance of providing the best level of care, injury prevention and treatment.

HUHS Athletic Trainer, Bryana Kudek, led the charge for the school to achieve this honor. HUHS Ath letic Trainer, Jeff Dauss stated, "This award is a big deal in the athletic training world and I am very proud of Bryana for leading the effort to have HUHS be officially recognized as a Safe Sports School 1st team. The busy schedule of an athletic trainer often does not leave much energy to work on extra projects like this but Bryana was determined to see it through and make sure that HUHS gets recognized for the great work being done for its student athletes. Bryana is an exceptional young athletic trainer that truly has a gift for working in the high school setting. I consider myself lucky to have the opportunity to work with her and I also think that HUHS is lucky to have her here."
In order to achieve Safe Sport School status, as HUHS did, athletic programs must do the following:
* Create a positive athletic health care administrative system
* Provide or coordinate pre-participation physical examinations
* Promote safe and appropriate practice and competition facilities
* Plan for selection, fit function and proper maintenance of athletic equipment
* Provide a permanent, appropriately equipped area to evaluate and treat injured athletes
* Develop injury and illness prevention strategies, including protocols for environmental conditions
* Provide or facilitate injury intervention
* Create and rehearse a venue-specific Emergency Action Plan
* Provide or facilitate psychosocial consultation and nutritional counseling/education
* Be sure athletes and parents are educated of the potential benefits and risks in sports as well as their responsibilities

This award was made possible due to a grant that Ms. Kudek wrote from the GLATA (Great Lakes Athletic Trainers Association). Congratulations again, what a great accomplishment!

Girls Golf

TOWN OF HARTFORD - Perfect weather conditions led to a plethora of 45s on Wednesday for a few Washington County girls golfers at the first North Shore Conference minimeet at Hartford Golf Course. Of the 24 area golfers among co-ops from West Bend and Kewaskum-Campbellsport, Hartford Union and Slinger, four carded a 45 and Hartford's Catherine Van Lare shot a 47. Two apiece - the Orioles' Kaitlyn Kerrigan and Kewaskum golfer Taylor Cook - carded a 50, and only three shot above 60 as the new-look NSC debuted on the links for the first of consecutive minimeets in the county.
