Mr. McCauley - WTEA Educator of the Year!
Congratulations to Mr. Corey McCauley, Technology & Engineering Educator who has been named the Educator of the Year for the Wisconsin Technology Education Association. This is a  significant  honor and distinction .   HUHS and our students are fortunate to have Mr. McCauley as a teacher
 
Mr. McCauley has been sharing his love and passion for Technology and Engineering Education for the last 22  years and has kept a brisk pace. During his time in education, Mr. McCauley has taught high school students, adults through the technical college system, and his peers in TEE through summer courses and other professional development he has led. He continues to be a lifelong learner, learning new techniques and keeping pace with industry trends
 
Mr. McCauley's educational philosophy for his courses holds firm to the belief that regardless if a student is college or career bound, every student will gain  necessary, life  skills they can use through Technology and Engineering courses. His courses focus on project-based learning by incorporating modern technology and hands-on techniques that are currently used in today's  manufacturing world and  workforce. He strives to add creativity to his courses through unique experiences. His Fabrication Methods course designed and created all of the wood cut-outs that decorated the Hartford Holiday River Walk this season. Beyond that, he continues to provide his students with a global view of TEE.  Hecompleted an Externship last summer at Signicast to keep abreast of industry and to share those experiences in his daily teaching and methodology.
 
Mr. McCauley is currently teaching Welding Processes I & II, Fabrication Methods, Automated Manufacturing, and Auto Maintenance. Outside of the school day, he co-advises the HUHS  SkillsUSA chapter that has had great success and continues to provide students with opportunities to develop their leadership skills. Mr. McCauley was also recently inducted into the Richland Center Wrestling Hall of Fame and  serves  as an Assistant Wrestling Coach at  HUHS
 
Beyond the courses that he teaches and educational opportunities that Mr. McCauley provides our students, it is his outgoing and fun-loving personality that draws people to him. He has a unique way of working with students that draws both high-level and  struggling learners to always feel comfortable and laughing while learning.
 
Congratulations to Mr. Corey McCauley .  It is easy to see why he was selected as the Wisconsin Technology & Engineering Educator of the year.  He is well deserving and has earned this honor.

Cohort Breakout - Mission to Mars
To kick off the next project in Freshmen Cohort, students were exposed to their first Breakout Activity. Students were introduced to their 3rd Quarter Google Time project: A Mission to Mars.  The Breakout included 5 puzzles, 4 locks, three rooms and an hour of challenging fun.  At the end of the activity students were heard saying things like "Can we do this every day?", "That was so much fun!", "Can we create our own Breakout?" and much more. In the coming weeks, students will work in groups to develop an action plan and model for colonizing Mars.  Click here  to check out the mission they received!

Spanish III Experiment
Students in Spanish 3 have started a unit regarding technology in our lives and the future. As we are discussing what students use now on a regular basis, they were challenged to see if they could go a day without their cell phones. Thursday, February 9th, over 60 Spanish 3 students turned in their phones to their teacher (Senora Ruiz or Senora Fendt) before 1st hour and picked them back up before heading home. As a result of the challenge, students realized that they were able to survive for the whole day but were excited to have their phones back.

Career and Technical Education Month
This month has been designated, Nationally and by our DPI, as Career and Technical Education Month. Our CTE programs at HUHS are very strong and includes courses from our Agri-Science, Business, Marketing and Information Technology, Family and Consumer Science, and Technology and Engineering Education courses as well as our Co-Op and Youth Apprenticeship programs. CTE has had a long standing tradition at HUHS and continues to be very successful in helping students to be "work ready" when they leave HUHS, but also offers a variety of organizations to develop leadership skills in career areas including:  FBLA, Deca, FFA, and SkillsUSA. Each week this month we will highlight one of our CTE departments, to learn more about the opportunities our students have in CTE at HUHS. Click here to read and see the state of Wisconsin proclamation for CTE week declared by Scott Walker.

Technology and Engineering Education
Our current facility is made up of eight basic areas.  They include Automotive, Graphic Arts, Drafting, STEM, Wood Products, Construction, Machine Shop, and Welding/Metal Fabrication.  In each of these areas, the facility was organized to handle three to four levels of classes and in some cases technical school classes through Moraine Park Technical College.  Each area has some of the latest equipment so students can engage in real life projects that they may encounter in their future employment.

A far stretch from where we were in 1997.  We have been blessed with community and industry support for TEE education. This is the biggest reason for our students' success.  These industries are supportive in so many ways. They continually donate material, equipment, technical support, and most importantly, professional interactions with HUHS students.

Returning to HUHS: GO GIRLS (Girls Outreach to Girls Interested in Real Life Success)
The intention is to introduce 8 th grade girls to career ready skills offered here at HUHS. Girls will have experiences in non- traditional career pathways.

Winter Camp: HUHS TEE offers a one day "Winter Camp" over the Holiday Break to middle schoolers. This year students created a snow measuring stick, t-shirt, key chain and used a laser engraver to make a wood name block.

Corey McCauley: has been named Wisconsin TEE Educator of the year for 2017. He will receive his award at the annual WTEA (Wisconsin Technology and Engineering Education Association) in March.

Teach the Teacher:  HUHS hosted Teach the Teacher in-service week for other educators in the state last June. This is an effort to share out skills, knowledge, and resources which can be incorporated into other programs across the state. This summer HUHS will host a second week of Teach the Teacher, highlighting the Wood Products Industry hosted by Jason Kraus.



SkillsUSA
SkillsUSA is a CTSO that focuses on students, teachers, and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. SkillsUSA helps each student excel in skills leadership and teamwork. We provide educational programs, events, and competitions that support career and technical education (CTE).  At the local level, students participate and organize the bean bag toss tournament, work nights for skills, skills week activities, industrial tours, and monthly events for the club including bowling, kickball, pumpkin carving, and more. Each December students who choose to compete go to a district event at a school in Southeast WI (district 5). In February, students who choose can compete in either of the Regional events we participate in, one at Gateway Technical College in Racine and another at UW Stout in Menomonee WI.  Students can then choose to compete at the State Leadership Conference in April, which if they win they can compete at the National Leadership Conference, hosted in Louisville, KY in June.  To find out more about what SkillsUSA is up to at HUHS, follow us on Twitter @HartfordSkills

Heroin Highway
The Noon Rotary Club of West Bend is pleased to announce Hidden in Plain Sight and the Heroin Highway Lecture Series.  This program will focus on educating parents on the critical issue of prescription drug abuse, underage drinking/tobacco consumption and other forms of illegal drug use.

Located at Moraine Park Technical College in West Bend, Hidden in Plain Sight is an interactive display of a teenager's bedroom with many items hidden or in plain view that helps to identify areas where teens may hide drugs, alcohol and other paraphernalia.  It also points out household items that can be used to either cover up drug and alcohol abuse or can be used to facilitate drug and alcohol use.  The purpose of the program is to educate family and caregivers about the signs that can be an indicator of drug abuse. 

Guided tours of the exhibit bedroom will begin on January 21st and will run Saturday's from 10 am - 2pm and on Thursday's from 5 pm - 8 pm through February 23rd.  It is free to attend and open to everyone 18 and older.  The exhibit is located next to the MPTC Library at the West Bend Campus.

As part of the exhibit, there will be a five-part lecture series titled The Heroin Highway.  Further information on the specific dates, topics, and speakers for this program can be found at www.facebook.com/hiddeninplainsightwb.

Educational Spotlight - Pharmacy as a Career 
                                                                      
Many high school students have not considered pharmacy practice as a career option. Students who have interests in science, engaging in the healthcare field, serving a wide-range of patient populations and/or would like a career that has a wide-range and diverse career opportunities - pharmacy may be a career option for them. The ultimate goal of a pharmacist is to improve patients' health. They use their knowledge of medications and healthcare to help select appropriate treatments, minimize side effects, and determine the best approach for the individual patient's needs.  For more information about whether or not pursuing a pharmacy career would be a good fit, please go to the following resource -  pharmacyforme.org

Some News from Activities & Athletics
January Athlete of the Month - Jordan Christnovich
Jordan was named Athlete of the Year by the coaches of the Wisconsin Little Ten, in recognition of his touch out win in the 50 free (by .01 seconds) and powerful anchor leg of the 400 Free Relay at the WLT Conference Meet. Throughout January,  he dropped time repeatedly in his 100 Free, which puts him in reach of a state qualifying time. He has developed a strong and fast finish that won two close races at the Beaver Dam dual and 2nd and 3rd at the Tosa West Invite. His speed and success has motivated the other top swimmers to keep up.


Christnovich, Maxwell Wins Highlight Hartford Union's WLT Effort
HARTFORD - Six points would not have mattered Saturday Still, Hartford Union coach Marcie Norton nearly jumped out of her shoes as junior Jordan Christnovich touched the wall 0.13 seconds before West Bend East's Jarod Meffert to conclude the 400-yard relay in the final Wisconsin Little Ten championship at the Bird Bath.  The Orioles split the West Bend juggernaut at the last WLT, placing second behind West Bend East with 260 points. East scored 327 while West Bend West placed third with 212. A WLT rule prevented the coop from remaining one at the conference championship meet the past five  seasons.  "That 400 - we knew it was going to be close," Norton said. "Another five yards we would have had it."  Hartford placed second to East in each relay, along with three individual races, and claimed two individual championships in the conference's swan song.

Hartford's Spuhler, Meinerz Bring Home Individual Titles
Outside of Slinger's five WLT titles and Leonhardt, Hartford brought home the other county champions - freshman Jalen Spuhler (113) and senior Quinn Meinerz (285). Spuhler defeated East's Dan Ciriacks - one of three Suns in a title match - via 15-0 technical fall. "He wrestled his style and you didn't see those (freshmen) nerves," Best said. "He scored points, hustled and did his thing."  Spuhler earned a 46-second pin in the first round against Beaver Dam's Zach Mecallis, and then pinned Wisconsin Lutheran's Lucas Nygaard in 1:33 in the semifinals. Meinerz had a first-round bye, then pinned Beaver Dam's Ricky Ruel in 1:33 during the semifinals. In the title match he beat Oconomowoc's Caleb Aschenbrenner 3-0. "I felt slow the first time I wrestled him (during the season)," Meinerz said. "Today, I felt great. I was energetic and felt I controlled the match." Meinerz succeeded in one of his weaknesses against Aschenbrenner, as he spent a lot of time in the riding position. "That was good because that's not where I'm so strong," Meinerz said.  Best said of his heavyweight's title match, "He was conservative, tactical and didn't want to make a mistake.

HUHS Booster Club Needs You!
 
Booster is the club at HUHS that raises funds through concession sales and 50/50 raffles at various meets, games and matches. Last school year we raised and donated $24,000 to various teams in the school and in scholarships. We earn that money with help from our members. How can you help? Work a concession stand. This is easy - selling a hamburger, hotdog, popcorn or drink. That's it - it's that simple. Come meet others like you in the community who find volunteering both helpful and rewarding. Want to also be a member? Check out our link on the HUHS website @  http://www.huhs.org/activities/booster-club.cfm. There you can find a membership brochure that can be printed out and either mailed in or dropped off at the athletic office. Still have questions? Email  sharonmeinberg@hotmail.com

Be a member. If you are a member, have you volunteered time yet? We need you!
