PLTW Biomedical Sciences Classes
The Project Lead the Way Biomedical Sciences classes completed their End-of-Course exams and demonstrated why HUHS was identified as a "PLTW Distinguished School."  Of the students that took the PLTW year-long cumulative exams for these courses, 77 students demonstrated proficiency on their course exam and maintained academic excellence throughout the year to earn weighted credit from HUHS.  Within this set of students, 50 earned advanced scores and are eligible for college credit through Milwaukee School of Engineering.  The highest scoring students from each course posed for pictures to commemorate their accomplishments. Great job, PLTW students and teachers for your dedication to this innovative program!!

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.  

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.

Congrats On A Great Season Boys Baseball!
OCONOMOWOC - Eric Vanden Acker spent a couple extra minutes staring at the blue sky Tuesday afternoon.  He didn't want to walk over to his Hartford Union team, huddled under a tree next to the batting cage outside Oconomowoc's baseball field at Roosevelt Park. Walking over to the huddle, his players, meant the season was really over.  Eventually, the Orioles head coach made the short walk to his team and spoke to them for the final time in 2018 after their season ended with a 6-2 loss to Sun Prairie in the Division 1 spring baseball sectional semifinal.  Arrowhead later beat Sun Prairie, 8-3, to earn the sectional championship.  "We knew we had a talented group when we came into this season," Vanden Acker said. "With the way the schedule worked out, we played a lot of competitive games against competitive the whole season, and in our conference. We knew there would be ups and downs. We had some big ups, and some stretches where we didn't play our best baseball.  "But we knew this was what this team was capable of, and we showed it today. We hung right in there against Arrowhead a couple games, and we hung right  in there with Sun Prairie."  Click here to read the full article.

Hartford Union's Dion Miszewski slams his bat down after striking out to record the final out in the top of the seventh inning.

Hartford Union's Zach Brewer slides to field a ball in the bottom of the sixth inning.

Hartford Union's Nick Vogel leaps for a ball as Sun Prairie's Alex Oakley watches to see if he makes the catch in the bottom of the fourth inning of the WIAA Spring Baseball sectional semifinal game  on Tuesday afternoon in Oconomowoc. Sun Prairie won, 6-2.
