Congratulations Tate Stoeckmann!

The precise definition is open to interpretation, but the seven Washington County high school seniors selected as Good Citizens by a local patriotic organization have a lot of similarities: All have demonstrated outstanding dependability, service, leadership and patriotism.  Each year, the Joseph Marest chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution allow staff from each high school in the county to select one student to receive a scholarship, pin and recognition. The process differs by school, but the results are the same.  "It is our pleasure each year to meet these outstanding young men and women," said Marie Schmidt, the chapter's Good Citizen  chairwoman. "They are really great examples of what it means to be a good citizen."  The Daughters of the American Revolution members know of what they speak. The local chapter is one 34 chapters in Wisconsin whose members trace their heritage directly to men and women who served in the American Revolution. The Joseph Marest chapter was organized in West Bend in 1950 and named after the Rev. Joseph Marest, a Jesuit missionary from the 17th century. The chapter has presented Good Citizen Scholarships to students for more than 60 years, with a goal of encouraging and rewarding the qualities of good citizenship, said Carol Orth, chapter regent. One of the recipients was our own Tate Stoeckmann: 
■ Tate Stoeckmann, Hartford Union High School, son of Erik and Jessica Stoeckmann. Tate will study nursing at Marquette University.

Forensics!
HUHS Forensics team traveled to Arrowhead HS this weekend and had an excellent day with great scores all around. Returning sophomore Charlotte Skibinski, was a finalist in the Special Occasion speech category.  This means that after 3 rounds of competition, she was selected in the top 7 and competed for one final power round. Freshman Connor Martin competed in the Prose category; not only qualifying to power round, but taking the first prize home!  This was an especially proud moment as he is marked Novice but outperformed seasoned Varsity competitors. Overall it was a great day and with this momentum, the team goes into their final regular season competition next Saturday at Oshkosh West HS. 
The boys basketball team has a limited about of extra  Gold  cards available for purchase at a reduced price of $10! 
Please see or contact coach McKenna at  kevin.mckenna@huhs.org if interested!


   


On Wednesday, April 24, 2019 , Hartford Union High School will be hosting a Focus on Connections Event - a financial simulation for 
all HUHS Junior students.   Based upon individual career selections researched in class, students will each receive a paycheck consistent with their career choice and will be responsible for making financial decisions regarding typical monthly living expenses.  The "reality check" for many students is the realization of the expenses their salary will or will not meet.
 
For this event, we need many business and community volunteers helping us simulate the most realistic day possible, and we would also love to have parent volunteers of Juniors. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided for volunteers.
 
Would be willing to help?
 
The event runs from 7:00 AM until 2:30 PM. You could help in the morning (7:00 AM - 10:30 AM) or afternoon (11:00 AM - 2:30 PM) or for the entire day. Any help would be much appreciated.

Please contact  beth.hermann@huhs.org if this is something you would be willing to do and I will give you more information about this event. You may email me or call 262-670-3208.
We would really appreciate any help you are able to provide!
ATTN: Current sophomores & juniors interested in a career in the health field.

Students are required to attend ALL days of the 2-week rotation.

If interested or if you have any questions see one of the PLTW Science teachers (Mr. Arnholt, Ms. Axford, Ms. McClain) or Mr. Duhr.  Applications may be picked up from one of the PLTW teachers or in Mr. Duhr's Office.

Specific timelines, expectations and process details are listed on the applications.

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.
Break 
10:00 - 10:10 a.m.
English testing 
10:10 - 11:50 a.m.
Break 
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 Wisconsin Lions Camp        
The camp is looking for campers and staff to join them this summer. Staff applications available are for counselors, program specialists, healthcare staff, counselors-in-training, and volunteers. Applications, camp schedule, and information are all available at:   www.wisconsinlionscamp.com

2019 Flu Information and Guide for Parents -  Flu season is again upon us.  Here are some guidelines for you about the flu including prevention, symptoms, treatments and other information provided by the CDC.   

Is it a cold or is it the flu, here is a helpful video for you:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PZLc6Ys1fQ

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 and Activities
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.
