Final Exams Schedule
2018 Wisconsin State Music Conference
Good Morning, Musicians, Colleagues, Administrators, Parents/Guardians, and Community Members. 
Back in March 2018, music students recorded pieces and submitted them as a full ensemble audition to be considered to perform at the 2018 Wisconsin State Music Conference in Madison, Wisconsin. We received a letter yesterday which extended an invitation for the HUHS Symphonic Band to perform as a very exclusive number of performing groups at the convention. Congratulations! This invitation is an incredibly prestigious and honorable performance invitation and one that is not offered lightly or to just anyone! The performance will be held at the Monona Terrace in Madison Wisconsin in the Madison Ballroom at  1:00pm on  October 25th, 2018. Please  learn more about the convention by clicking this link. 
The Wisconsin State Music Conferences brings together several thousand educators, administrators, students, parents, and professionals from the music business industry to share and learn more about ways to make a difference for students, schools, and communities through high-quality music education. 
Aside from being a HUGE honor, our performance will also serve as a workshop for other teachers where they can learn about the details of our excellent music education model at Hartford Union High School. Our Symphonic Band's performance will showcase for teaching professionals, administrators, and the Wisconsin music industry how our extraordinary program exemplifies a premiere model of music education. 
Congratulations, Symphonic Band members on your outstanding achievement! Your hard work is recognized, and it is now time to put that hard work on display. Be proud of your work and appreciate your outstanding commitment to our daily work - bravo!
Last but certainly not least, I would like to send a big thank you to our adjunct music faculty, private teachers, associate district music teachers, and all of the parents of the music students who develop a love for music making. Thank you for providing HUHS with fantastic students instilled with a work ethic that is second to none. I look forward to where we will grow in the future. This is just one stop of many for the journey of the Hartford Area Schools music team. It is an accomplishment of many individuals and one that needs to be recognized and celebrated - congratulations, all! 
Please accept this announcement as an open invitation to all to attend the performance by the Symphonic Band in Madison. We need to show our Oriole and Hartford Community pride by bringing a large presence from our area to the convention performance. 
Again, congratulations! We will now embark on another journey together which will showcase our excellent music department. The work will begin immediately to produce a performance that is unlike a level yet achieved. Our current performance level is now our benchmark and a springboard to new heights. 
Let's go, Orioles!

Food Service Year End Information
Food Service Balances
Students with a negative balance during the last week of school (starting  May 30) will not be allowed to charge any purchases; free meals can still be purchased. Negative meal account balances need to be cleared before final exams / graduation.  Graduates owing District fees, including meal charges, may be restricted from participating in the graduation ceremony. Account balances for students returning to HUHS will carry over to the next school year.

Food Service Refunds
Refund checks will automatically be generated for inactive accounts (due to graduating or withdrawing from HUHS) if other district dues are not owed and if a sibling is not currently or will not be attending HUHS in Fall. If district fees are owed, the amount of the meal account refund will be applied toward that balance. If siblings are still attending or will be attending HUHS in Fall, the balance will remain in the account for them. Full-price accounts may opt to donate their refund to a donation meal account to assist students in need by contacting the Food Service Office ( foodservice@huhs.org or (262) 670-3315.  

Health Minute
A reminder to parents and students that if your student has PRESCRIBED medication in the Health Office, the prescribed medication needs to be picked up by a parent before the last day of school.   Any medication prescribed by a doctor and given at school needs a new order every school year  written and signed by the physician and the parent.  Prescription medication cannot be transported to or from school by a student.  Any unused medication unclaimed by the parent will be destroyed by administrative personnel  within 7 days after the end of the school year - per School Board policy.  Source:  HUHS School Board Policy ag5330

Over-the-counter medication, emergency medications (Epi-Pens, Diastat, inhalers, insulin kits) can be picked up by the student, we cannot not store over-the-counter or emergency medication over the summer.  Click here  http://www.huhs.org/district/health-services.cfm for the prescribed medication form, over-the-counter medication form and Individualized Healthcare Plans for all student medical issues - all need to be redone, signed and returned before school starts - on a yearly basis.  

Rotary Host Families Needed for 2018-2019 
Hartford Rotary's next inbound exchange student will arrive in late August, and be with us, and be a student at Hartford High, until early summer 2019.  We will be lucky to host 17 year old Monika Adamczyk from Chelm in eastern Poland.  Besides being fluent in English she is competent in Spanish.  We would like to get commitments from three families in the Hartford area, each to host her for 3 to 4 month.  Rotary pays a monthly stipend to help Monika have some spending money, and the school chips in with lunch money.  Ask your family if they would like to have this fun and educational opportunity, while providing Monika with the same  opportunities.as other young adults in the home.  

Monika is now a sophomore at a Lyceum in Chelm, which is near the Ukrainian border.  She is the only youngster at home weekdays, and her studies emphasize chemistry, biology, Spanish, English and Polish language and literature.  Her older sister studies in Wroclaw and is home weekends.  The sisters get along well and with their parents emphasize the outdoors with hiking, biking and sailing.  She thinks she might like to study dentistry or orthodontology in college, but thinks a year in the US will open up other opportunities for careers related to medicine.  She's fine with household chores, says she is neat and tidy, but isn't into cooking.   She will be a great addition to any receptive family in the area.
