Toys For Tots
On Wednesday, six students (and Ozzy) visited both Lincoln and St. Kilians School to talk to the student body about the Toys for Tots Campaign. Select Associate Schools will be taking part in the campaign next week, in hopes to help raise our total donations. The students at these two schools welcomed our members today, and these student-athletes represented HUHS in a great way. We Are Hartford!






Toys For Tots
Starting on  Monday, December 11th H-Club will be running our annual Toys 4 Tots Campaign. Students will be collecting toys and monetary donations during your 1st period class each day next week. All toys and money will be donated to the Hartford Christmas Committee, in which the items will stay in the Hartford Community. The top 3 classes will receive a pancake breakfast from the Mineshaft. Read below the mission statement from the U.S. Marine Corps on their initiative for the Toys for Tots Program.

The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect, new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

H-Club is happy to help people in our community. If you have any questions, please contact  Eric Vanden Acker


It's the Most Musical Time of the Year!
Wednesday afternoon over 200 students from Richfield, Friess Lake, and HNR attended the Music Department's bi-annual Children's Christmas Concert.  This concert featured performances by our Marching Band, 8th Hour Orchestra, Voces bel Canto, and Concert Choir and a sing-along that involved all of our guest students.  In fact, the sing-along was such a success that it was heard all the way in the North Pole and attracted the attention of the one and only Santa Claus, who made an appearance at the end of the concert!


Also on Wednesday the HUHS bands were fortunate enough to have another local composer visit and clinic with them.  Rick Kirby, whose band warm-up exercises our bands use every day, spent some time working with our Symphonic Band and Concert Band on his pieces An American Fanfare and March to Concord, We were very grateful for Mr. Kirby's time and insight, as we will be performing An American Fanfare in London.



The following message was received after the Concert Choir sang at the tree lighting ceremony:

Dear Mr. Brusubardis,
Thank you to you and your beautiful choir.  Their voices and their willingness to be a part of this community tradition were wonderful.  The phone calls and the emails have not stopped coming in about how lovely the ceremony was and how nice the choir was. I would definitely agree.  Thank you for sharing  your music with all of us. Hundreds of our donors were listening to WTKM. They really look forward to this event and being a part of it.  Your choir made it very special.   We wish you and your choir a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Enjoy the pictures.
Sincerely,
Deb Holtan




A Musical Night in Hartford
Tuesday, December 5 was a very busy night for the HUHS music students.  The marching band performed a mock parade downtown, which was recorded by WISN 12 news as part of a broadcast special they are putting together about Christmas celebrations in area communities.  Coinciding with the band and orchestra trip to London, this was a great opportunity to showcase our fine students prior to their international departure.  In addition, several students from the HUHS Concert Choir performed prior to the Community Tree lighting.  Finally, a small group of band students left the parade early to perform several Christmas carols for the ladies of the First United Methodist Church.  There was plenty of Christmas spirit shared throughout our community by the fine music students of HUHS last night!  If you wish to hear more music to get you excited for the holidays, attend the Band and Orchestra concert December 11 at 7pm in the Small Gym and the Choral concert December 20 at 7pm in the Small Gym.





H-Club Food Pantry Donations
On Wednesday, December 5th H-Club members dropped two van loads of canned goods to the Hartford Food Pantry. All items were donated from HUHS Students and faculty during our Thanksgiving Food Pantry. In addition to the canned goods, HUHS presented the food pantry with a $900 check with the money donated during the drive. Great job HUHS on having another successful food drive for our community!

COLLEGE APPLICATION TIP

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.

Athletics and Activities
Boys Swim News
You missed high energy and hot swimming if you missed the Hartford Relay Meet last  Saturday. The Oriowls won medals in 6 out of 11 events, including 1st place in the 1st race (400 Medley), as they did last year (Jeromy, Santiago, Cory, Jordan). Then, they took 1st in a tense win over long time rival West Bend in the 800 Freestyle. The team came in a close 3rd overall, swam 18 best times, and saw awesome anchor leg swims from Santiago Cloud, Jordan Christnovich, Cory Maxwell, & Quinn Worman.

West Bend will return to the Birdbath next week ( Dec. 14) for the Conference dual match-up. If  Saturday is any indication, it will be a close, hard-fought battle. Be there at  6:00 to cheer on our Oriowl athletes!

Boys Swim Win
With a meet theme of "We have a lane, we have a chance," the Oriowls took on the longtime swimming dominance of the Cedarburg Bulldogs. They took the chance and ran - or rather swam - away with it, bringing home a sizable win of 104-56.
They seized the opportunity with a 1st and 2nd place win in the Medley Relay (Jeromy, Santo, Cory, Jordan & Evan, Quinn, Logan, Zach) and turned that adrenaline into Oriowl wins in 10 of the 12 events. That included a sweep of 1st, 2nd, 3rd in 100 Breast (Quinn, Zach, Roberto) and 1st and 2nd in 2 other events (100 Free of Jeromy and Jordan; 100 Back of Jeromy and Logan). Santiago (200 & 500 Free), Cory (200 IM & 100 Fly), Jordan (50 Free) and the 400 Free Relay topped off the night's wins - and sent home a bus of celebrating athletes.
