Freshmen Parent Night

Culinary Arts 3 & 4
Culinary Arts III & Culinary Arts IV students began the year with a chocolate taste-testing challenge!  They were asked to use their senses to detect secondary flavors found in various pieces of chocolate; then determine what other foods or flavors would be complimentary.  No one complained about this assignment.  

Bathrooms Beautified!
This week the girls at HUHS were welcomed back to a different look in a few of our girls bathrooms. After seeing a similar project take place at another school, Alternative Education teacher, Ms. Jamie Piittmann, set out to spruce up some of the bathrooms at HUHS. Ms. Piittmann coordinated all of the efforts and the supplies were all donated by the teachers that painted in an effort to encourage and appreciate the girls at HUHS. Teachers came in the evenings last week to paint and create designs in the women's bathroom across from the main office as well as the one near our Drama/Lecture hall. Thank you HUHS teachers for taking the extra time to make our bathrooms more welcoming!


Welcome New Staff!
We continue to introduce you to our new staff that have joined the HUHS staff for the 2017-18 school year!

Some News from Activities & Athletics
Congratulations to Our Washington County Athletes of the Week!


■ SOPHIA WERNER, Hartford Union:  The senior shot a 44 to help lead Hartford to another NSC mini-meet third place finish Tuesday. She placed third.


 TRISTAN BRADLEY, Hartford Union: The senior quarterback threw for 208 yards and two touchdowns on eight completions in a 26-21 North Shore Conference victory at West Bend East on Friday. A 13 yard score to Jacob Pepin put the Orioles ahead 20-14, and his 94-yard strike to Jason Patterson in the fourth quarter was the Orioles' final score and third consecutive in the second half.


■ MICHAEL FULOP, Hartford Union:
The senior scored twice as the Orioles upended No. 3 Cedarburg, 3-0, Tuesday at Gib Mahr Field. The victory marked Hartford's first NSC win, and first of the season (1-1-3).

Orioles Best Suns in Battle of Unbeatens
Whenever Hartford Union absolutely needed a boost of momentum, it seemed to get it  Friday. The offense had three big plays and the defense came away with two critical turnovers. When the final whistle blew, Hartford earned a 26-21 road victory against West Bend East in a North Shore Conference game.  The Orioles are 3-0 for the first time since 2008 - the final year under coach Dan Brunner.  The Orioles received the opening kickoff, and offensive coordinator Paul Shelsta was confident his offense could get a quick strike.  The first play was a flea flicker in which quarterback Tristan Bradley - who threw a wobbling  pass - found Jacob Pepin  for a 30-yard gain.  "The first play, we wanted to come out and catch them off guard," Bradley said. "For the next play, from what we saw on film, if we got a good push, we could get a big gain."  On the second play, Richard Smith scored on a 42-yard run to give the visitors an early lead.  "The line opened up a huge  hole and Richard is so fast," Bradley said.

  • Please email one digital file of your photograph to It must be at least 2x3 inches at 300dpi.

File types can be .jpg or .tiff
  • DO NOT SEND IN a screenshot of your senior picture from your photographer, if at all possible, have your photographer send the photo to prevent losing any quality!
  • Photos must be vertical color prints, with  no pets, no hats, and have a simple background. Dress needs to be school appropriate. Remember, the pictures in our yearbook are small, so ideally the photo should show just the head and shoulders. We want to maximize your face size.
