Science Carnival
Yesterday the students in our advanced science courses (AP Chemistry, AP Biology, Chemistry II, PLTW, & Veterinary Medicine) held their first ever, Science Carnival! Middle school students from the Hartford Area Schools were invited to come to hear about the various experiments and research they completed throughout the year. The excitement and energy level at the event was truly that of a carnival!  

2nd Annual Staff vs. Students Battle of the Books
Over the course of the year, students and staff were challenged to read 11 YA novels.  On Thursday, May 25th, the epic battle for the golden trophy commenced.  Both teams were well prepared, but the staff narrowly edged out the students by 2 points.   The score now stands with 1 victory for each team.  Watch for announcements next fall so you can join in the fun!  

Cohort - Biology and English Connection
In Freshman Cohort, students are finishing up  Romeo and Juliet .  Throughout reading the play, students studied the text in English and discussed the use of poisons in Biology.  To finish up the play, the students studied the  Romeo and Juliet  "crime scene" in Biology.  They had to view the set-up and predict what happened at the end of the play."

Job Fair
On Thursday HUHS hosted a job fair directed towards Seniors and Juniors looking for full-time or part-time summer employment during the resource hour. If your student missed the fair but is still looking for a job, please note that we always post openings that local companies share with us on our Local Jobs for Students page under Be Informed on our Website.  There are multiple job opportunities listed on a bulletin board outside of the Student Services/Counseling Office as well as on our website.  Click here  for the link.

Lunch Payments
Please ensure your child's lunch account had enough funds in it to cover daily purchases. As the end of the year approaches, students will not be able to make purchases with a negative lunch account.

Households with a graduating Senior will receive a refund in the mail over summer if the balance is greater than $5.00, if other fees are not due, and if there will not be any siblings attending HUHS in Fall.  If a sibling will be attending in Fall, the funds will remain in the account for them. Refunds for balances under $5.00 can be requested by contacting Monica Glorioso at (262) 670-3315 or monica.glorioso@huhs.org.Funds not refunded are transferred to a donation meal account to assist students and families as needed.
Health Minute
The end of the year is fast approaching and some parents may be starting to think of next year already with sports physicals or other doctor exams over the summer.  If your child has a health condition that the school needs to know about such as asthma, severe allergies, etc., please click on the link and print the form for an Individualized Healthcare Plan and take it with you if you have an upcoming appointment.  Every student who carries an inhaler or an Epi-Pen, needs a Healthcare Plan on file signed by the parents and doctor, these need to be done on a yearly basis.  I have also added links for the prescription medication card for the parents and doctor to sign.  Students can carry over-the-counter medications at school with a signed permission slip from their parents and with the medication in the original packaging (no pills in bags.)  These forms will be collected on the registration days in August or can be mailed or faxed back to my office by the first day of school.  fax  262-673-8943

Seniors will need to request a final transcript from Parchment if they are college-bound.  Most colleges and universities require a final transcript to complete the admission process.
Seniors need to log into their Parchment account to make that request.  Be certain to supply a personal email address (not the HUHS student email).   Request a "final transcript" when submitting the order; transcripts will be available the end of June.

If a Parchment account has not been set up yet, please go to   www.huhs.org, where the link to Parchment is available by clicking on Transcripts.

Any transcript questions can be directed to the Student Services Office.

Some News from Activities & Athletics
Good Luck at State!

Johnson & Meinerz - On To State!!
Hartford Union's Quinn Meinerz received congratulatory hugs from Orioles head coach Paul Coffin and throws coach Doug Dimmer after his last shot put heave.  The senior wanted to end his career as a three-sport state participant, and put everything he had into his final put of the day.  When it landed several supporters cheered, and when the distance - 55-1.75 - was read, there were more.  Only when Fond du Lac senior Donte Johnson's final put land more than a foot short of Meinerz' mark did the senior break out a smile.  "It was the motivation, wanting to achieve my goal of going to state in three different sports as a senior," Meinerz said. "Going up, I was like 'This could be my last throw. I've got to go for it.' "The saying is it only takes one throw. That was my one throw I had to make it count. It was awesome to finish off like that."  Dimmer and Meinerz noted the pupil has worked all season on changing from a glide-step to a full rotation into his throws, and part of the transition has been keeping his head in on the follow-through so he  doesn't step out of the circle and scratch.  It affected him at least twice Thursday, but his form was true on the qualifying  throw.  "It eased up his body, and from last year to this year it's about an eight foot difference," Dimmer said of the change.  "Biggest thing he's been working on is trying to stick his landing. That's the only thing that was holding him back, and he got it."

Notes: "Both Jack and Quinn have worked hard for four years to get their opportunities and both are well deserving of the chance to compete at the State meet. As a coach these are the types of athletes you dream about coaching." - Coffin 

Evans Helps Orioles Qualify in Relay and 800 -  Good Luck at State!

Finishing behind Slinger during the 3,200 relay was rival Hartford Union, which placed third to earn the final qualifying spot.  "They all ran great. They all had PRs for splits," coach Lance Zodrow said. "Before the race, I told them that they had to PR in order to move on. They really excelled. ... For them to PR is a confidence boost. They keep improving and that was great for them."  Rachel Zuern, Cassidy Sheehan, Courtney Kind and Alyx Evans ran a 9:53.94. Needing to move up a few spots during the middle of the race, Kind's leg helped the Orioles get into third.  "Courtney, as the third runner, made up a lot of ground and that made Alyx's job easier," Zodrow said.  Evans added, "Courtney kicked in on her second lap. She did so amazing. She started passing people at her 200 and put me in a good spot. I had to keep up third and fight for it. I wanted it and my team wanted it.

Girls Soccer Victory - Advance to Regional Final
GIRLS SOCCER Hartford Union 7, Sheboygan South 0
The Orioles were without the services of forward Megan Zickert (ankle), but the No. 6 seed still managed to dispatch the No. 11 seed with relative ease  Thursday at home in a Division 1 regional semifinal.  Hartford's first regional victory in four seasons was also its 11th shutout this year.  "We moved the ball so well in the first half. One- and two-touch passes moved the ball from side to side," coach Kevin Martin said. "We came out on fire  tonight and really played well as a team."   Mallory Knight shifted to striker, and scored two goals and had an assist. Madeline Hoxworth scored twice, and added an assist as well. Abby Gastrau got the start on the left wing and scored an early goal and added a second half assist.  "Gastrau stepped into that starting spot and looked so well prepared," Martin said. "You never know when you are going to get that chance, but Gastrau practices hard every day and her hard work is paying off."  Sheboygan South did not have a shot on goal.  HUHS travels to defending state champs, DSHA on Saturday in the Regional Final.
