In the Classroom
Freshman Cohort
In an effort to better understand the intricacies of the Central Dogma of Biology (how DNA is used to make proteins), Cohort students were asked to demonstrate their understanding in a video project.  Students could work alone or with a partner to make a 2 minute video. The video was to be an analogy comparing something in their everyday life to the events of a cell using DNA to make proteins.  Students were also asked to include video footage using the Flow of Genetic Information Kits. 
An example video project was how a Coach gets a play to a quarterback who delivers the message to the team in the huddle and then the team executes the play. This really does a nice job explaining how the DNA gets the message to mRNA which in tern takes the message to the ribosome. The ribosome reads the message to build a protein out of amino acids.

The Freshman Cohort Program was pleased to have Plia Xiong, Wisconsin State Coordinator for the  World Food Prize, as a guest to help kickoff a new project for Cohort students during third quarter.  The World Food Prize starts at the state level where HUHS Cohort students will work together with Cohort teachers, students from around the state and meet at UW-Madison in April to present their research paper at the   Wisconsin Youth Institute.  Students will pick a developing country, research life in that country, and try to find areas of concern.  In doing so, students will then research potential solutions in one of 20 different categories such as water scarcity, sustainable agriculture, dietary diseases, infectious diseases or human rights.  
There is really a topic of interest for every student. Students will then submit a research paper by late March to be analyzed by a group of experts with the World Food Prize. After students present their research at the Wisconsin Youth Institute in April, three participating students from the state of Wisconsin will be invited to the International World Food Prize Symposium in Iowa that will include 1000 global leaders from 65 countries to be held next October.

ACT Work Keys Test Date Change
Juniors will take the regular ACT at HUHS on Wednesday, February 20 as part of the statewide administration; however, the administration date for the ACT Work Keys has changed:  juniors will take the ACT Work Keys exam on Wednesday, March 13. 
The ACT exam days can be stressful and trying.  We are moving the ACT Work Keys exam to March so that students do not have two testing days back-to-back.  Our goal is to have juniors rested and rejuvenated for both exams.

In addition, DPI will be including both the ACT exam and the Work Keys exam as part of the annual School Report Card score.  It is important that students are focused and ready to do their very best on both exams.

The Academic and Career Program Guide and course selection presentations are on the HUHS Counseling web page.   The Academic and Career Program Guide is available through electronic copy to upperclassmen.    https://www.huhs.org/academics/acad-guide.cfm
Students will have from February 11 through February 25 to enter their course selections into Skyward Student Access. Online access will open on the 11th at 2pm and close at 8pm on February 25th.  
Parents are asked to review course selections with their child and help ensure careful consideration is given to these choices. Students are encouraged to have conversations with their teachers about course selection so that readiness, skill levels, and interests are aligned with choices.
February 25 Homeroom:
Freshman, sophomore, and junior students will review the course selection sheet with Homeroom teachers and make sure the courses have been accurately entered into Skyward.   Any student who has not entered their courses into Skyward will do so in Homeroom on this day.

Questions or concerns regarding course selection should be directed to the student's counselor.

Seniors Attending a University of Wisconsin School in the Fall
After students are admitted to a UW campus, they are invited to participate in Regional Placement Testing.  Students find out their appropriate level of math, English, and foreign language to begin in college as a result of taking the tests.
Students register online  for Regional Placement Testing beginning February 1. Regional Placement Testing allows students to take the test close to where they live so they don't need to travel to the campus they'd like to attend. Also, students need to register for only one placement test even if they have been admitted to different UW campuses or if they change their mind about which UW campus to attend. All UW campuses have access to each student's scores.
Students should be intentional when selecting a site and date. Students can change or cancel their registrations. However, it's often difficult to do so because popular sites fill quickly and changing is impossible after registration deadlines pass.
There are two options for taking the placement tests. Students may register for paper exams or computer-based exams. The exams, questions, and timing are the same, although there are additional fees for the computer-based exam. The computer-based exam provides an on-screen scientific calculator-no other calculator will be allowed during the computer-based exam.
A driver's license, state-issued ID, passport, or high school ID containing name and photo may serve as the student's identification at the testing site.
This is the schedule for testing day (all times are approximate):
Seating, orientation, and math testing
8:00 - 10:00 a.m.
10:00 - 10:10 a.m.
English testing 
10:10 - 11:50 a.m.
11:50 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Dismissal of those not taking a foreign language test, followed by foreign language testing
12:00 - 1:00 p.m.

Placement test scores are shared with students when they participate in their summer orientation and registration session. It's important for students to take the placement tests in the spring so that the results are ready for summer registration, since some campuses do not allow students to register for classes until they can see the test results.

The Greater Milwaukee College Workshop
The Greater Milwaukee College Workshop is a free event for high school students and their parents. Attendees can pick from 12+ presentations covering all aspects of planning for college.

Health Services
The Health Room is located in the Attendance Office and is staffed Monday through Friday from 6:45 a.m. until 3:15 p.m during the school year.

Please, remind your student that they always need to come to the Health Room with any health concerns and to not call, e-mail or text home to leave school.  The Health Technician will always call the parent or emergency contact to arrange for the student to leave school when ill.  

If a student talks, e-mails or texts their parent on their own and then they leave school without contacting a staff member and receiving a permit to leave, they are considered truant from school.

Athletics & Activities Recap

  The Hartford Wrestling Team finishes 4th out of 10 at the NSC Wrestling Tournament. Here are the individual results: 2nd - Tyler Klein, Jalen Spuhler and Jared Stark. 3rd - Connor Gishkowsky and Nic Hoefler. Time to get back to work!

We knew it would be a great Conference Meet when the 4th seeded Medley Relay (Adam Marx, Dylan Webb, Logan DeBack, Quinn Worman) took 2nd, touched out by just .12 seconds by West Bend's top sprinter. After that, Saturday's North Shore Conference Championship Meet did not disappoint. The heart-pounding highlights included:

Quinn's strongest 200 IM of the season and fast finish which moved him from 6th seed to 3rd place (.04 seconds ahead of 4th placed Homestead). He was on fire from start to finish.

Dylan's 1st place in the 50 Free, crowning him the fastest swimmer in the North Shore Conference. It is also the 4th year in a row that the OriOwls have claimed that title.

The 2nd Place 200 Free Relay (Adam, Quinn, Bobby Klockow, Dylan) which had been seeded 4th in a very tight heat. Each leg of the relay was neck and neck across all 8 lanes from start to finish, until Dylan's speed as anchor out-touched Whitefish Bay by a mere .06 seconds.

The 1st & 3rd finish in the 100 Breaststroke. Dylan led the field from his powerful start and underwater pullout to his finish 6 seconds ahead of his nearest competitor. Quinn continued his speed streak, moving from 6th seed to 3rd place in yet another race.

Other top finishes were 
Bobby's 5th in 200 Free & 4th in 400 Free
Adam's 4th in 100 Free & 6th in 50 Free

In summary, the team came in 5th and we brought home these Conference honors:

1st Team All Conference
Dylan Webb - 50 Freestyle & 100 Breaststroke

2nd Team All Conference
200 Medley Relay of Adam Marx, Dylan Webb, Logan DeBack, Quinn Worman
200 Free Relay of Adam Marx, Quinn Worman, Bobby Klockow, Dylan Webb

All Conference Honorable Mention
Quinn Worman - 200 IM & 100 Breaststroke

The team will be back at it this Saturday at Homestead for Sectionals.


Boys Basketball

Hartford Union 64, Slinger 62 Hartford Union's Jadon Melvin and Jake Lynch combined for 46 points during a North Shore Conference victory Friday.   Lynch led the Orioles with 25 points, while Melvin added 19. Hartford led 31-23 at halftime.
Brad Brewer scored a game-high 26 points for the Owls. Logan Homberg added 14 points for Slinger.

With its huge first place North Shore Conference showdown with Whitefish Bay coming up tonight, the sixth-ranked Division 2 Slinger girls basketball team was determined not to look past border rival Hartford Union on Friday.
Slinger cruised past the Orioles 61-40 in the opener of a girl/boy doubleheader at Slinger.
The Owls broke open a 13-12 game with a 13-0 run in the first half. Slinger then used a 14-2 burst to start the second session.
"It was a good response," said Slinger coach Tony Dobson. "We know because of the (inclement) weather we will have five games in eight days, but the girls have their minds in the right place. We're not looking past anyone."
The victory improved the Owls to 11-1 in North
Shore play and 15-1, keeping them apace with Bay (11-1), which was hosting Grafton (8-4) tonight.
Fifth-ranked in state Bay is responsible for the Owls' only loss, a 55-34 decision back at the Blue Dukes' Fieldhouse on Nov. 27. Slinger will host Bay at 7:15 p.m. Saturday.
"They're a very good team and really took it to us that night," said Dobson. "We'll have to be ready."
Meanwhile, Hartford fell to 2-11 in league play and 4-13 overall.
Orioles coach Christian Schnell pointed to that second half run as a backbreaker. Slinger had built a large lead in the first half on the back of its high pressure, fullcourt defense which forced 18 turnovers out of Hartford in that first session.
But the Orioles kept it competitive - at 35-20 - at the break. However, at the start of the second half, the turnover bug hit the Orioles again and in what seemed like a blink, the Owls had the lead back up to 49-22 with 15:05 left.
"We had some chances early to cut it down,but then turned us over something like five times in a row," said Schnell.
"We just couldn't focus and get back on rhythm."
After that point, the final score was as close as the game got.
Senior guards Sydney Reinhardt (14 points) and Casandra Warmsley (11) keyed Slinger's second half run and junior forward Hannah Brooks also added a big 3-pointer.
Hartford had taken an early 6-0 lead on a pair of 3-pointers from senior guard Maddy Sieczkowski, but it didn't take the Owls' press long to start creating easy opportunities A putback by Reinhardt gave the Owls the lead for good at 13-10, and then freshman post Kacey Ott (10 points) hit a close-in shot tostart the 13-0 run that made it 26-12 with 6:20 left in the half.
Dobson said his experienced guards help keep the Owls' highoctane attack running fast.  
"We've had a lot of this group around a long time," he said, "Some of them have been with us for four years (on varsity). We put in the system four years ago and now the girls are very comfortable with it."
Schnell said it's a very challenging attack to break down.
"That's what they do," he said. "They know they'll give up some easy ones (with the press), but they keep at it and they know it will pay dividends for them in the long run. Their kids really believe in it too. You give up runs like we did tonight, you're not going to be successful too often.
"There's a reason why they're ranked sixth in the state."
Sieczkowski led Hartford with 13 points.
As noted, Dobson liked the response from his team with so much at stake for the Owls.
"They (the Orioles) hit some 3s early, but we never panicked," he said. "We just had to clean up some things defensively and we did."

2018-2019 Information


New This Year - Clubs & Activities Online Registration
Starting for the 2018-19 school year, all students wishing to participate in activities, clubs or sports will need to complete the Online Forms through Skyward Family/Student access.  All steps need to be marked as completed including step #8 "SUBMIT SY19 ATHLETIC/CO-CURRICULAR FORMS".  Online Forms only need to be completed once per school year, so if a student participates in a sport as well as a club or activity the Online Forms only need to complete once.

If the student is only participating in an activity or club but will not be participating in a sport, they may mark step 3 complete and do not need to have a Physical Clearance Form completed by their Physician.  

Once the online forms have been completed, the student will then need to pick up an "Orange Card" from the Co-Curricular Office clearing them to participate in their activity or club. Activity/Club organizers will inform students of this change at the first sign up meeting and collect the orange cards before the next regularly scheduled meeting.
