In the classroom
Wednesday in Kevin Martin's AP BioPsych Bundle class students were learning about the details of neuron function and how it applies to sending messages around the brain and body.  This  class dance number  is one way students try to understand the complex interactions of sodium and potassium as they move across membranes of our neurons.  They will then apply these concepts to a psychological case study that focuses on the neuron and make a video explaining what is going on to a patient that has recently been diagnosed with a particular neurological disorder.

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.

There were 84 players in the Reserve section from all over the state.  29 others were unrated like Vince.  More details and photos on the chess club web page:  https://www.huhs.org/activities/chess.cfm

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.

Record Set, Four Swimmers Heading For State; 
OriOwls Have Great Sectional Meet
The 200 Medley Relay of Olivia Meinberg, Caitlin Simonz, Paige Dulski, and Irene Wilson broke the team record set two years ago by Olivia and Cora Meinberg, Malory Smits, and Carly DeBack.  Irene's 23.3 split was amazing.
Our program qualified no relays last year for WIAA State, but this year's 200 Free Relay is in the thick of things.  They may be seeded 13th, but all these teams are within 2 seconds of each other.  Paige Dulski, Irene Wilson, Shayna Krist, and Olivia Meinberg will be sharpening their tools all week long.  Olivia's 23.0 split caught some attention.
The 400 Free Relay, seeded at 4:06.88. They went a 3:56.28. 
At WIAA State this Saturday, Olivia Meinberg is seeded 4th in the 50 Free, and Irene Wilson is seeded 9th.  We have some amazing sprinters on this team, and their training taper has been geared toward State this year.
Olivia will also be in the 2nd of 3 heats in the 100 Free, ready to beat her best time and be among the top finishers. 
The time drops at Sectionals were amazing.  Skyler Bertz lit up the team when she dropped a full 8.9 seconds off her 200 Free time, only to outdo herself in the 500 Free when she achieved her goal of breaking 6 minutes with a 5:59.90.  She dropped 20 seconds in the last two weeks in that race. 
Despite being impressively sick, we knew Shayna Krist was going to have a big day when she went that 26.27 in the 50 Free.  That's a drop of .54 seconds.  She did her first-ever 25 second split in the 200 Free Relay, dropping .8 seconds.  We needed that. 
Alyssa Simonz knocked 4.8 seconds off her 200 Free, and 2.02 seconds off her 100 Back.  Her 2 second drop in the 400 Relay was a big part of that 400 Free Relay success. 
Rylie Christnovich dropped time in her 200 Free and 100 Free, and was also a big part of that 400 Free Relay. 
Caitlin Simonz took 2.06 seconds off her best 100 Breaststroke, Maria Graziano dropped 3.55 seconds in her 100 Back.

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.
