Literature Class
Students in Mr. Dobberstein's and Mrs. King's Literature classes performed "missing scenes" for the classic play  Raisin in the Sun by  Lorraine Hansberry. The activity required students to show they could make choices regarding structuring text, much like Lorainne Hansberry did in her classic play.

Thank you to the Student Council and advisors for successfully carrying out another huge Blood Drive at HUHS!

Birds Nest Creations
HUHS began a new transition program this year for special education students ages 18-21.  The majority of the program takes place in the community and focuses on independent living skills, communication skills, and vocational skills.  The students also created their own classroom business and are responsible for all aspects of the business from production to marketing to inventory to sales.  The name of their business is Bird's Nest Creations.  The students create and sell candy wreaths and candy arrangements.  Proceeds are used to fund current and future community-based experiences for students in the transition 
program.  The wreaths and arrangements make great last-minute gifts or unique gifts for the hard-to-buy-for individual.  Samples and pre-made items are always available or you can customize your order.  Stop by room 194 to see some of the products or complete the  order form to purchase an item.  THESE MAKE GREAT CHRISTMAS GIFTS - Order Yours Today!

This Thursday, local composer Michael Sweeney visited HUHS and worked with the 1st Hour Symphonic Band on his piece  Earthdance .  The band program will be performing this piece in London and we were so excited to have Mr. Sweeney provide his perspective and help grow our performance of this unique piece.  Combining snippets of music styles from around the world,  Earthdance  is a very appropriate piece to take with us internationally.  In addition, Mr. Sweeney emphasized the importance of every member in the ensemble and that the piece only makes sense when EVERY member is present and contributing

Class of 2018 - Yearbook Baby Ads
Dear Parents/Guardians of HUHS Seniors:
 
Looking for an opportunity to express your love and pride toward your senior student in a sentimental way? Here is your opportunity:
 
Senior Baby ad submissions will be accepted through Thursday, December 21.  A senior baby ad is a personal message and picture that you can submit to be printed in the 2017-2018 yearbook. The senior baby ads from last year can be viewed starting on page 170 in the 2016-2017 yearbooks; a sample is also on page 2.
 
The cost of an ad is $35.00 each, which covers the printing costs and makes the World Beat section of our yearbook possible.
 
If interested, please send the following:

1.       A baby picture (preferably under 5 years of age) of your senior

2.       A brief message to your senior (no longer than 3 sentences!)

3.       A payment made to HUHS for $35.00 (cash or check)

4.       The first and last name of your senior

5.       Confirmation e-mail address


 

The pictures must be about 2" x 3" and 300 dpi for them to be the quality we need for printing.  If they don't meet requirements, they will require editing which may cause some change to originals.
 
Pictures and messages can be emailed to yearbook@huhs.org .
 
Email is preferred but not required, if you email your photo and message, please mail or drop off the payment. You can also mail your ad submissions to me, Jana Danay - Yearbook Adviser at HUHS, 805 Cedar Street, Hartford WI 53027, or you can drop them off in an envelope at the secure entrance in the front lobby labeled with my name, Jana Danay, "Senior Baby Ad," with your student's first and last name.
 
Any photographs you submit will not be automatically returned.  We cannot take any responsibility for any damage that may occur to photographs, so please do not submit irreplaceable pictures. If you would like your picture back, please provide a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Photos will be ready to be returned after spring break.
 
Please also note, this baby photo is NOT THE SAME as the photos that are used in the Graduation ceremony slide show. That photo should still be submitted by March 1 to graduation@huhs.org , even if you submit a yearbook senior baby ad.
 
The deadline for placing a baby ad is Thursday, December 21.  Please e-mail yearbook@huhs.org  with any questions/concerns. Still need to order a yearbook?

COLLEGE APPLICATION TIP

Save the speech.  Tell the tale.   No need to stress out about the college application essay or be nervous if you think of it as a conversation or a story about yourself.  You aren't giving a speech to thousands of people but someone in the Admissions Office who really wants to hear it!    The essay is a story that means something to you and if you are able to convey that meaning to Admissions, you've done the job.
 
If you'd like help with your college essay, Mrs. Carter or Mr. Dobberstein are available in the Writing Center during 5th and 6th period.   Mr. Schliewe is available during Resource on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in Room 84.   All three are English teachers.

Hartford Union-Slinger 94, Port Washington 73

From Friday's Daily News:
The Hartford Union-Slinger coop won nine of 11 events during a North Shore Conference road dual Thursday.  The co-op had a 1-2-3 finish in a pair of events - the 100-yard breaststroke and 100 backstroke.  Santiago Cloud won the backstroke (1:00.52), followed by Logan DeBack (1:07.63) and Jordan Christnovich (1:07.72). Quinn Worman won the breaststroke (1:11.65), ahead of Zach Michalak (1:15.8) and Slinger's Roberto Barrera (1:23.02).   Cloud also won the 200 individual medley (2:06.75), ahead of teammate Cory Maxwell (2:19.32).  Maxwell won the 100 butterfly (58.54), while Jeromy Lofy won the 200 (1:59.88) and 500 freestyle races (5:38.8). Christnovich placed first in the 100 freestyle (53.52).

Daily News - Boys Swim Preview
From the Daily News on 11/30/17:
Just down the road, the Orioles welcome one Slinger athlete - Roberto Barrera, an exchange student enrolled at Slinger - in the first year of the co-op.
"His background is in water polo and he is an enthusiastic addition to our team, with potential that has yet to be tapped," coach Marcie Norton said.
Norton's squad is 20 strong this season, and will be challenged by a deeper schedule and conference, the coach added. It is bolstered by several returnees who reached sectionals but missed out on qualifying for state. Jordan Christnovich, Santiago Cloud, Logan DeBack, Jeromy Lofy, Cory Maxwell, Zach Michalak and Evan Staton are all one year older and wiser.   Cloud placed sixth in the 500 freestyle, while Christnovich placed seventh in the 50 and 100 freestyles at Homestead. Maxwell placed seventh in the 100 backstroke.  "Santiago has had impressive  times in recent US Swimming competitions, dropping both his 500 and 200 free times into state qualifying range," Norton said of the sophomore. "He has his eye set on state in February and breaking a school record or two.  "Cory, Jeromy, and Logan have been training hard in the off-season to reach their goals this year, which includes competing at state."   Newcomers who could help include Bobby Klockow and Quinn Worman.
