Sensory Analysis
Students in Ms. Schadrie's Exploring Life Science & Agriculture class are diving into the food science industry practice of performing sensory analysis. After testing their senses on Monday with cheese identification, they learned about the specific industry standard tests that are used to analyze food products. Today they are practicing several of those tests - including the triange test, paired comparisons and scructured scale scoring - on varieties of popcorn available in our local grocery stores. Through the next few weeks they'll learn more about how to evaluate food for its quality and safety and will make homemade mozzeralla before designing an experiment to change a variable in the cheese production process. 

Best Buddies!
The HUHS Best Buddies Club members had a lot of fun last week snow tubing at Rock Snow Park on Thursday and attending an all-chapter Best Buddies dance on Saturday.  We are grateful for donations from Rock Snow Park and Wisconsin Upside Down Foundation who helped make these events possible.  Our members had an amazing time and are forming such great friendships!

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!

Student Services
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 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

Health Careers Summer Camp
Health Careers Summer Camps in your area will have their applications open up online starting today,   March 1st!  These two camps are sponsored by the Northeastern Wisconsin Area Health Education Center, Lakeshore Health Care Alliance, and the Fox Valley Health Care Alliance. The applications will be available on the NEWAHEC website [ www.newahec.org ]. The first camp is in the Fox Valley Area, students will be housed on the UW-Oshkosh campus. The second camp will be in the Sheboygan/Manitowoc area, and students will be housed at Silver Lake College. All campers will be exposed to health care professionals and academic institutions from both areas. The camps are 5 days long, and allow students to experience first hand the challenges, opportunities, and rewards of being a health professional. The camps are for any students entering 11th-12th grade along with new high school graduates. Applications will be   due May 3rd   for both camps. Any questions please contact Brenda Birringer  (920) 652-0238  brendab@newahec.org       Camp Flyer

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.

Attention Seniors: EVER Y student at HUHS has health/immunization records in the Health Office located in the Attendance Office.  Because you are graduating, HUHS no longer needs these records and you will need them for college, jobs or travel. 
Please be sure to stop in to the Health Office to pick up your records as soon as possible.  Get a treat while supplies last!

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.
