HUHS Scholarship Foundation 
Application Forms

The HUHS Scholarship Foundation application forms will be available for seniors beginning Monday, December 3, 2018 .
Seniors will find the scholarship information and application using the following link:
 
Forms require both student and parent signatures, and are due no later than Friday, February 22, 2019 by 3:00 pm in the Counseling Office.
 
No applications will be taken after that date and time.

All students are invited to attend a FREE private screening of the film Science Fair on Thursday, December 6 at 3:00 PM in Drama Lecture.  There will be popcorn!
Hailed by critics as "immensely likeable," "brilliant and quirky" and an "ode to the teenage science geeks on who our future depends," and winner of the audience award at Sundance and SXSW, National Geographic Documentary Films' Science Fair follows nine high school students from around the globe as they navigate rivalries, setbacks and, of course, hormones, on their journey to compete at The International Science and Engineering Fair. 

As 1,700 of the smartest, quirkiest teens from 78 different countries face off, only one will be named Best in Fair. The film, from Fusion and Muck Media and directed by the DuPont Award-winning and Emmy-nominated documentary filmmaking team Cristina Costantini and Darren Foster, offers a front seat to the victories, defeats and motivations of an incredible group of young men and women who are on a path to change their lives, and the world, through science.  Watch the trailer here: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/films/science-fair/
Softball Sock Collection
In addition to HUHS, socks will also be collected at Faith N Giggles and Piggly Wiggly!

  Seniors

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.

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.

UW-Oshkosh is hosting a Health Science Workshop on Saturday, December 8th.  This workshop is designed for students interested in health science, physical therapy, athletic training, or exercise science.  The day provides an opportunity to understand more about the health care and fitness professions available through UW-Oshkoh Kinesiology and Athletic Training Programs.  The program runs from 9:45-2:30 and will include breakout sessions where participants will practice hands-on practice.  More information and registration can be found at

ACT Testing
Looking for FREE  resources to prepare your student(s) for the ACT? Click  HERE  to go to the ACT Academy website!

All students considering a two or four-year college experience are reminded to take the ACT test during their junior year.  Students can register for the ACT at 
www.actstudent.org. When registering, students will need the HUHS school code, which is 500-850.   Please remember to check the website to see if the college(s) your son or daughter is considering requires or recommends the ACT writing test.   The test fee for the ACT is $50.50 and the ACT with writing is $67.00.   If you feel you cannot afford the test fee, please ask your child's counselor if you are eligible for a fee waiver. 
HUHS is an ACT test center for all testing dates (except February 9).  The test dates for the 2018-2019 school year are:
October 27, 2018            December 8, 2018                 February 9, 2019                    April 13, 2019                 June 8, 2019                     July 13, 2019

Note:   Please keep in mind all juniors are required by state law to take the ACT at the high school on February 20 (no cost to the student on February 20).    When considering whether or not to sign up to take the February 9 or April 13 ACT, it may be best for students to take the February 20 test, then decide whether or not to retake the test in June or July based upon February results.


It's not too late, you can still join Best Buddies.  Stop in the main office for more information!

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.
