ACT Testing Date -

ACT Work Keys Testing Date - 
February 28, 2018 - 
*Buses will run two routes for pick up on February 28, one in the morning for Juniors, one later for the Freshmen, Sophomores, and Seniors.

Dear Parents or Guardians of Juniors,
Juniors will take the state-mandated ACT Plus Writing and the ACT WorkKeys on Tuesday, February 27 and Wednesday, February 28, respectively. The tests can only be taken on these dates, or their makeup dates of March 20 and March 21. It is critically important that every effort be made for your child to be in attendance and on time to school on these test dates. There is no cost and no registration to take the test on these dates.
These tests are part of the Wisconsin accountability system and are taken by all juniors in the state. Results are used in a variety of ways, including college admissions, curriculum and instructional decisions at HUHS, and as part of the School Report Card rating issued by the Department of Instruction (DPI).
Our average composite score on the ACT last year was 19.9, below many other area high schools. We certainly want to improve this, but to do so it is important for all students to take the test and to give their best effort, regardless of their plans after high school.
The following information is important for both you and your child and applies to both test days.  Please take a moment to review these items with your child.
  • Juniors will be in school 7:25-1:00 on Tuesday and 7:25-2:45 on Wednesday. Normal busing is provided.
  • Students must have soft-lead #2 pencils (no mechanical pencils) and a picture ID, such as their student ID or driver's license; a calculator is also strongly recommended.
  • Cell phones and electronic devices, other than calculators, are not allowed during testing and breaks. Any student using any electronic device, other than a calculator, during testing or breaks, will be dismissed from testing. This includes cell phones buzzing or beeping during testing and breaks.
  • Please contact the Attendance Office if you need to reach your child for any reason. Do not call or text your child directly.
  • Students may not read, talk, or do other work while testing is in progress.
  • Eating or drinking in the testing room is prohibited.
  On Tuesday, February 27 only:
  • A free breakfast will be served from 7:00-7:40.
  • Testing begins at approximately 8:00. Students should plan to arrive by 7:25. Any student arriving after testing begins will not be able to test that day.
  • Free water and snacks will be available during a 15-minute break to occur at approximately 10:15. Your child may bring snacks, but these can only be consumed during the break.
  • Students will be released after completing the tests around 1:00PM. 
  • There will be an optional bag lunch option for students in the cafeteria after testing concludes
On Wednesday, February 28 only:
  • There will be an optional breakfast available for purchase in the cafeteria from 6:45-7:15AM
  • Testing begins right away at 7:25. Again, any student arriving after testing begins will not be able to test that day.
  • There is a 15 minute break, but no snacks will be provided. Please plan accordingly.
  • Lunch begins at 10:45 for juniors or those who wish to eat lunch at HUHS
  • Freshmen, sophomores, and seniors will report by 11:20, as school will resume with 25 minute classes 11:20-2:45
You can also assist by encouraging your child to give his or her best effort while taking the assessments.  Here are some tips to help your child prepare for successful testing:
  • Keep a positive attitude and simply do your best
  • Pay attention to the directions as they are read
  • Pace yourself
  • Complete the easier questions first, and then go back to finish the rest
  • Try to eliminate some of the choices, and then choose the best answer
  • Answer every question, even if you have to guess
  • Don't worry if others finish before you; testing does not end early, even if everyone has finished
  • Go back and recheck your answers, if you finish before time is called
  • Make sure you have filled in all answers for the test
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you have. I can be reached at  rachel.janczak@huhs.org , or by phone at  262-670-3200 ext.373 .
Thank you,

An Important Message form the Dean of Students
Dear Parents and Guardians,
The advent of Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS), vapor products or "vaping," has created new concerns for our community and school districts. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, more than 2 million middle and high school students were using e-cigarettes in 2016. It also estimated that in 2016 approximately 11% of high school students and 4.3% of middle school students were using these products.

Please click here for the full letter from our Dean of Students.

One common vapor product is called a "Juul." It looks like a flash drive or, when plugged into a computer, a wireless router. It is small and easy to conceal, and can easily be concealed in pens, markers, and highlighters. The vaping juice, "Juulpod," contains the same amount of nicotine as a pack of cigarettes.

Vaping or ENDS Vapor Products:

Course Planner in Career Cruising
Your child will receive course selection information in Homeroom on  Monday, February 12 .  A great way to map out classes is the use of Course Planner in Career Cruising.  In December, letters were mailed home with parent access code information.  Logging in as a parent allows you to see your child's Academic and Career Plan.  If you have misplaced your letter, please e-mail  careercruising@huhs.org  for a new code.  We encourage you and your child to utilize all Career Cruising has to offer as s/he plans for courses for the 2018-19 school year.

SMART Students to Present Research Findings at National Biochemist Convention
Hartford Union High School students have received approval from the Board of Education to take two separate trips - one in March to San Diego and another during spring break in 2019 to London and Dublin.  Student members of the HUHS SMART team (Students Modeling a Research Topic) will travel to San Diego from March 19-22 to attend the national convention of the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. SMART team Advisor and Biology teacher Mark Arnholt submitted the request for the trip, which past SMART team members have taken before.  "This will be the fourth time the SMART team has presented at this convention," Arnholt said in the memo describing the request. "They will present their research findings to the professional and academic community."  SMART team members are involved in "cutting-edge research" in their work to create 3-D models in support of their research findings.

PLTW - Medical Interventions
Medical Interventions has been investigating gene regulation in cancers. Last Wednesday, they completed a simulated DNA Microarray to determine how gene expression differs between healthy cells and cancerous cells. They had the opportunity to work on their micropipetting skills and will begin determining correlation coefficients next.

Biomedical Innovations Poster Session
The Biomedical Innovation class (PLTW year 4) participated in the 5th annual Poster Session on Wednesday. Students have been investigating human physiology for the last 6 weeks. They researched past work, designed and conducted their own experiment, completed statistical analysis of their data, and created a research poster to summarize all of their work. Science and Agriculture students and staff were invited to attend while students explained their research and fielded questions. A special thanks to Carmen DeBack for printing the posters, Michelle Yu and the LMC Staff for providing a space to present in, and Kristen Kieckhaefer for loaning the program her easels.

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.

Early College Credit Program (ECCP)

The 2017-19 State of Wisconsin Biennial Budget included new language regarding high school students who take courses for college credit. The budget combines the Course Options and Youth Options programs into a single new program called the Early College Credit Program (ECCP).
High school students at public and private high schools may be permitted to enroll in a UW System institution, or an alternative private, non-profit institution of higher education to take courses to earn high school credit, post-secondary credit, or both. Course costs are shared among the school district/private school and the state (and in some cases, the student's family). 
Students in grades  9-12 may be eligible to take courses during the fall, spring, or summer semesters. Students may submit their completed forms to school officials by  March 1 for summer/fall semester - or  October 1for spring semester.
For more information, contact your child's counselor.

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 (except February 10).  The test dates for the 2017-2018 school year are:
February 10, 2018                      April 14, 2018                                     June 9, 2018                                     July 14, 2018
Note:   Please keep in mind all juniors are required by state law to take the ACT at the high school on February 27 (no cost to the student on February 27).    When considering whether or not to sign up to take the February 10 or April 14 ACT, it may be best for students to take the February 27 test, then decide whether or not to retake the test in June or July based upon February results.

Athlete of the Month for January 
Congratulations to Annie Mularski of our Gymnastics team. Coach Scherrer shared this about her:
"Annie always comes into practice with a positive attitude and does whatever we ask of her. She has continued to work hard adding new higher level skills into her routines many of which she told us at the beginning of the season she wouldn't do (because she was afraid). She is supportive and encourages her teammates and helps them out when needed. She set new school records on vault, floor & tied (with Emily) for a new school all-around record. She took 4th all-around at the West Bend Invite & finished 4th on Vault & 6th on Bars. She won the All-around at the Falls Invite took 1st on Vault & Bars was 2nd on Floor & 3rd on Beam. She took 3rd All-around at the Watertown Invite and placed 1st on Floor & Vault. In duals she took 2nd all-around , 1st vault, 2nd beam & 3rd on bars & floor against Homestead. She led our team to a season high 138.775 against Whitefish Bay placing 2nd all-around, 1st on beam & 2nd on vault & floor. She has been selected as the Washington County Athlete of the week twice this past month by the Daily News."

Boys Swim Stacks Up Wins at Conference Meet
There is no better way to start out a championship meet than to earn the title of champion in the 200 Medley Relay, and for Hartford-Slinger at the North Shore conference meet, that win was just the beginning of a medal winning day. The Fast Four (Jeromy, Santo, Cory, Jordan) took first by a 2.03 second margin. The second relay of Evan, Quinn, Logan, and Zach was not far behind with 5th place.
From there, the Hartford-Slinger swimmers were on the podium in nearly every event:

Santiago Cloud - 2nd in 200 Free, just 1.42 seconds behind Grafton's Nick Starr. He earned another 2nd in the 500 Free, as he echoed the pace of West Bend's state champion contender, Bryan Fitzgerald, and swam his best 500 of the season.
Cory Maxwell - 2nd in 200 IM, 2nd only to Fitzgerald. Two events later, Cory came in 4th in the 100 Fly.
Jordan Christnovich swam his way to a 3-peat Conference Title in the 50 Free. And two events later, placed 2nd in 100 Free. Those points kept the OriOwls in 2nd place as a team until the 200 Free Relay.
Jeromy Lofy followed up his 4th in the 100 Free with a crazy-close touch out finish to win, and earn a best time, in the 100 Back (58.74, just .11 ahead of 2nd and .26 ahead of 4th - a breathtaking race!).
Quinn Worman scored his best 100 Breast of the year with 1:09.90 (a 2 second drop) and 4th place .
Then came the meet finale - the 400 Free Relay. After a season undefeated in the 400, Hartford-Slinger faced-off with former WLT rival, West Bend, in a fierce battle for the title. Close from the start,Jordan led off with 51.12, just ahead of West Bend's Jackson Raad. Cory expanded that lead to 2 seconds ahead of West Bend's Collin Meyer, dropping 2 seconds to swim his best split of the season (51.85). Then, it was up to Santo to continue to build on that lead, and he added 1.5 seconds of space. Jeromy, with legs still aching from his 100 back, knew what he had to do - swim the fastest 100 of his life. And that he did, at 51.13.Unfortunately, Fitzgerald's blistering 47.39 50 meant the OriOwls took 2nd by .59. Look for the rematch at the Sectional Meet next weekend.
The team's overall standing at 4th is a reflection not of its speed, but of its size. When counted in the number of top places and best times, it was a successful day for the OriOwls.

Other scoring races included:
14th place 200 Free for Quinn
200 IM 7th place Logan DeBack and 14th place Evan Staton
13th place 200 Free Relay of Robbie Wolff, Tate Stoeckmann, Bobby Klockow, and Adam Marx
11th place 100 Breast for Zach Michalak
10th place 400 Free Relay of Alex Hall, Evan Staton, Adam Marx, and Logan DeBack
