Student Council Hosts Middle School Leadership Conference
On Wednesday, January 24, the HUHS Student Council members hosted middle school Student Council students from our Associate Districts for a leadership conference. The day included shadowing high school students and a number of various leadership workshops, speakers, service projects,  and team building activities. Click here to see an album of some of the photos taken.

Middle School Math Meet
This afternoon our Math Club hosted the 8th Annual Hartford Area Middle School Math Meet.  Approximately 250 students from our associate districts were at HUHS from 11:30-2:30.  Competition was held in the second floor math classrooms followed by an awards ceremony in the cafeteria.  Over 70 HUHS Math Club members volunteered for the afternoon to help make this a success! What an awesome sight to see 250 middle schoolers get pumped about math!

Mock Trial
The Mock Trial team participated in a regional scrimmage this weekend at Brookfield Academy. "Outstanding Lawyer" awards were presented to Catherine Vanlare (team captain), Sam Klosowski, Viktoria Tadlock, Elizabeth Gonnering, and Allan Kreuser, while "Outstanding Character Witnesses" were awarded to Sadie Stelter, Viktoria Tadlock, Annabelle Noyes, and Olivia Tadlock. Spectators are welcome to come and cheer on the team at our next scrimmage on Saturday, 1/27 at the Washington County Courthouse (8am-12pm) or at our regional tournament on Saturday, 2/10 at the Waukesha County Courthouse (8am-5pm).



We The People
The Sophomores in AP Government who qualified for the We The People State Competition in Madison had an outstanding experience taking on phenomenally complex Constitutional issues.  They won't have access to such an impressive assortment of scholars, legal experts, and academicians until deep into their college lives.    
Although they fell short of the goal to break into the top three teams,  there is no doubt that you are looking at young people who are destined to serve as leaders in adulthood.  We'll be in good hands if any of these students aspire to public service.

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.

Athletics and Activities
OriOwls Swim to the Win in Grafton
After Grafton's dominance in last year's Conference Meet and 3rd place team finish at Division 2 State, the idea of facing Grafton was intimidating. However, while the two returning state swimmers are fast, taking 1st in 3 of 4 individual events, the OriOwls had both a broad and deep enough team to build the 100-80 win.

Top swims this evening came from Cory (2nd in 200 Free, 1st in 100 Fly), Santiago (1st in 200 IM, 2nd in 500 Free), Jeromy (1st 50 Free & 100 Back), Jordan (2nd 200 IM, 1st 100 Free), Logan (3rd 500 Free), Quinn (3rd 100 Free, 2nd 100 Breast), and the 200 Free Relay and 400 Free Relay (Jordan, Jeromy, Cory, Santo).

With tonight's win, the OriOwls conference record stands at 4-1-1, with one Conference dual left to go.
Gymnastics Wins Watertown Invitational
School records fell all over the place for the Orioles gymnasts Saturday in Watertown.  Hartford Union scored 136.4 points to win the Watertown Invitational by 1.675 points. Elkhorn was second. The Menomonee Falls/Germantown/Sussex co-op was fifth (132.15).  The Orioles broke four school records, including Emily Perkowski's personal- best 36.125 all-around score. That score, which came with a win on the balance beam (8.9) and three other top-3 placements, won the all-around meet title, as well.  "Emily broke Kyle Copeland's (35.95) allaround record from 1998," coach Mary Scherr said.  Perkowski registered a 9.5 on the floor exercise, 0.025 points behind teammate Annie Mularski. Mularski's 9.525 established a new school record (old, Janette Bower, 9.35, 1998) and won her the event. The pair led Hartford to a team-record 36.325 score, which was previously set in 1998 (36.325).  Miya Robinson scored a 9.05 on the implement.  "Floor was our second event and the girls looked great," Scherr said. "This is one of the events we've been showing a lot of improvement. The girls have been working hard to up their difficulty and event requirements and have cleaned up their execution significantly."  Mularski also set a team record on the vault with  a 9.2, placing first. The old school record was 9.0 by Copeland in 1998.  Perkowski was third with an 8.75, while Shauna Hoff posted a personal-best 8.25.  "I was a little worried going into the meet because with it being exam week practices were a little rough toward the end," Scherr said. "But we started off on the first rotation on beam with only two falls out of 10 routines which was good.  "However, we need to work on getting our connections and better execution. This has been an event we've struggled on this year, so hopefully we can start pulling it together and getting some consistency."  Perkowski was second on the uneven bars (8.975), while Mularski placed fourth (8.4).  Mularski placed third all-around (35.375).  The junior varsity placed second with a 116.55.  "Moving forward I'm hoping to stay consistent in the areas we're doing well and improve on the things we're struggling with," Scherr said. "I was really proud of how well the girls did today on both JV and varsity. Both team scores were high scores for the season."
