2019-2020 Course Program Guide 
A vailable online 
Information on the 2019-20 course selection process will be coming towards the end of January in the Involve. Please watch for this!

January 11, 2019, Hartford, WI,  Hartford Union High School (HUHS) invites students, parents, and community members to an information session on the Emergency Medical Professions and a new EMT class HUHS is offering to students and community members, Wednesday January 23, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. in the HUHS Drama Lecture Hall.
HUHS, in conjunction with the Hartford Fire and Rescue Department, MPTC, and Advocate Aurora Health Care, will be presenting information on EMS/EMR/EMT/Paramedic potential careers, pathways, compensation/benefits, and more. Below is the informational session's agenda.
HUHS will also talk about the new course offering, Basic EMT class, for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year available for juniors and seniors. Through "Start College Now", students who take this class may earn up to five college credits. HUHS and MPTC teachers and staff who teach health related classes will also be on hand to answer questions about course and program opportunities and pathways that will prepare students for a career in Emergency Medical Services, and other health related areas.
"I think it's important for current 8th graders (HUHS incoming freshman) and current freshmen and sophomores who are making choices about their classes for next year, to understand another career path choice is available to them." said Jon Duhr, Director of Teaching and Learning at HUHS. "If Emergency Medical Services is something they are interested in, there are many classes we offer that will help prepare them to take the EMT class as a junior or senior."
In addition, the Basic EMT class at HUHS will be available to adults in the community who would like to take the class and pursue a career in Emergency Medical Services.
The Basic EMT class will be taught by a Certified Level 2 Instructor from MPTC, and the time of day is yet to be determined. 192 class hours are required, as well as 10 patient contacts.
Student fees for the course include supplies, background checks, the national registry exam, etc. Tuition and book costs for HUHS students are paid for by the District.
HUHS students interested in the Basic EMT class should talk with their counselors about registration. Community members, please contact Jon Duhr (262.670.3299 or jon.duhr@huhs.org).
Hartford 4th At State We The People Competition

These AP Government and Politics students put forth one of the strongest efforts ever, but still fell short of beating Oshkosh West for that coveted third-place spot. We are the only team of (primarily) sophomores who haven't had a US History class yet, so, as always, these Hartford students exceeded their expectations.

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. 
·        February 20, 2019:  ACT; 7:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.; Juniors only
o        Freshmen, Sophomores, and Seniors are not in attendance.
·        March 13, 2019:  ACT Work Keys; 7:30 a.m. - 11:10 a.m.; Juniors only
o        Freshmen, Sophomores, Seniors:  late start at 11:20 a.m
In the Classroom
Over the past few years, the AP BioPsych Bundle class has had multiple students that are colorblind.  This can be challenging for the student as the course uses many visuals where seeing color or changes in color make a difference in their processing and understanding of the material.  Thanks to the Social Studies and Ag/Science Departments, a pair of glasses created by EnChroma were purchased to help students that are red/green colorblind see those colors for the first time.
Here is a  short video clip of one AP BioPsych Bundle student seeing the color of a Christmas tree for the first time.  It sent chills down our spines when sitting in the room seeing this reaction live.  Leah will now be able to use these glasses to help her better understand the colored visuals used in class.  Leah also said she is looking to get her own pair of glasses to use in her everyday life!

Student Services

Does your senior have everything they need to make one of the most important decisions of their lives? Students who apply early to college are in a better position to capture financial aid and make important decisions that impact their college applications.   Seniors should be applying to post-secondary institutions if they haven't already begun to do so.    Apply online to any University of Wisconsin campus
At Apply.wisconsin.edu.    Information on Wisconsin private colleges/universities can be found online at    www.wisconsinsprivatecolleges.org   Wisconsin technical college information will be found at   www.witechcolleges.org       These websites are designed to be primary resources for easy access and information about the colleges, academics, degrees, athletics, and so much more!!    Don't delay in applying because housing and scholarship opportunities are often connected with admission. Remember:
  College Application Tip
Save the speech.  Tell the tale. No need to stress out about the college application essay or be nervous if you think of it as a conversation or a story about yourself.  You aren't giving a speech to thousands of people but someone in the Admissions Office who really wants to hear it! The essay is a story that means something to you and if you are able to convey that meaning to Admissions, you've done the job.
Seniors can talk to their English teachers for assistance or keep in mind there are peers available in the Writing Center in the LMC during Flex.

Orioles keep on rolling
Hartford Union wins WBW Invitational
By Gidal Kaiser
gkaiser@conleynet.com 262-306-5051
Start with a bang.
Hartford Union's gymnastics team opened Saturday's West Bend West Invitational with a 35.1 score on the vault during the event's first round. It was the third-highest rotation score of the day and set the Orioles up for a 2.3-point victory over North Shore Conference rival Nicolet and the invitational championship at day's end.
Hartford Union scored 137.475 points, while Nicolet scored a 135.175. The Orioles registered a 35.125 on the balance beam, and had the highest score during three of the four rotations.
"That was a strong meet, especially for how hard they were scoring today," junior Myia Robinson said. "I think we did great."
Added freshman Alyssa Ohm, "We all have faith in each other and we all know that we can do it. We all believe in each other, cheer each other on. That's a major factor that helps us."
West Bend East placed sixth with 126.9 points, while meet host West Bend West placed seventh with 126.575 points.
The Orioles' day began with the vault, which is an element Hartford's gymnasts have had a love-hate relationship with over the past two seasons. Robinson threw in her tsukahara for the first time this season Saturday, head coach Mary Scherr said, while Emily Perkowski is still working on fully forming hers.
"We were glad to get vault out of the way," the coach added. "They have some big vaults, and they're nerve-wracking. They definitely have the
capability to do them, but it's still scary (for them). But it's part of gymnastics - it's a tough sport."
Senior Annie Mularski scored a 9.25 to place second, while Perkowski (8.9) was sixth and Robinson (8.65) placed 10th. Ohm (8.3) tied for 17th, while sophomore Ally Zickert (8.0) tied for 27th.
"Yes, very much," Robinson said of being relieved the vault was first. "I wanted us to start with an event we were strong with, and that I know it's mental for us. That's why it's best to get it over with.
"We came in, and we all landed them."
Mularski and Perkowski again paved the way for a thinned-down Orioles squad. Mularski placed second in all-around (36.175), and Perkowski (35.175) was third. Robinson (33.35) was ninth, while Ohm (32.425) and Zickert (30.85) was 20th.
Hartford had just five available for the varsity portion, as a few others were off on a schoolsponsored academic excursion.
"As a team without having some people we normally have, we did really well and pushed through and earned a win," Ohm said. "We all have faith in each other and we all know that we can do it. We all believe in each other, cheer each other on. That's a major factor that helps us."
Mularski won the uneven bars gold medal  with a 9.1, while four of the five Orioles placed between fourth and ninth on the balance beam.
"The goal is to keep moving up each meet. We've been steadily doing that. I don't think we had anything amazing today. We just were steady and there is still lots of room for improvement. (We're) Capable of a lot more."
The Suns had seniors Amber Dricken and Sydney Spaeth back for a three
rotations. Dricken placed seventh on the uneven bars (8.325) and 20th on the balance beam. Spaeth placed 14th on the floor exercise (8.5).

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.
