Senior Photos

The deadline to submit Senior Photos for the Class of 2019 for inclusion in the yearbook is November 1, 2018.  As this date is rapidly approaching, here are a few reminders for submitting Senior Photos.
 
Senior Photos in the yearbook are small, so ideally the photo should just show the head and shoulders - we want show as much of your face as possible!  Photos must be vertical color prints that meet the following requirements:
  • No pets
  • No hats
  • Simple background
  • School appropriate clothing
To submit your Senior Photo, please follow this process:
  • Ensure that you are submitting a digital copy of your photo.  DO NOT submit a screen shot of your senior picture from your photographer.  The image must be at least 2x3 inches at 300dpi.  Files should be submitted as a .jpg or a .tiff.  If you cannot submit a digital file, we can digitize your photo but this will reduce the quality of the original.
  • Name your file with your last name_your first name (Ex: Doe_John)
  • Upload your file to this link: https://images.jostens.com/410583672
Many local photographers have these deadlines and may send the photo for you if you ask.  Please note that we cannot accept prints from a laser or inkjet computer printer.
 
Photos received after the November 1 deadline will result in a $25 fee.  Photos received after November 15th WILL NOT be published in the 2018-19 yearbook.  Any students who do not turn in a Senior Photo prior to the November 1 deadline will have their HUHS school photo published in the yearbook. 
 
More information, including a list of local photographers and the listed of submitted Senior Photos, can be found on the Yearbook page on the HUHS website.  
Please email  yearbook@huhs.org with any questions!

Musical
HUHS will present Little Shop of Horrors, a hilarious, retro, sci-fi musical about a man-eating plant, on November 9, 10, 16, & 17 at 7:30 pm and November 11 at 2:00 pm at the Schauer Arts Center.  
Tickets are on sale now at  www.schauercenter.org    Adults are $16 and Students & Seniors are $12.  
October 16th - staying with French students from HUHS!

This is a partnership that has been continuing for the past 10 years now and is our 5th such exchange. They hosted us during our spring break this past spring, and now we are in turn hosting them. The students are paired by their teachers and connect first through social media so they know each other a bit before they actually meet face to face.

While here they will attend classes with their partners and will have various excursions and activities we have arranged on their behalf. They will tour Hartford and visit the fire station, Schauer Arts Center and the Auto museum, the Rec center and downtown area including an ice cream making lesson and lunch at Scoop Deville and a pizza party with their host families at the Mineshaft.

While at school they attend classes with their partners, and check out some classes that they may not have at their school, such as music, art, photography, culinary arts and some forms of PE.

Additional excursions planned are visits to Madison and Milwaukee, a dairy farm and a cheese plant, the Horicon Marsh, and a golfing lesson at the golf course.
They will also be given the opportunity to carve pumpkins and attend a football game (neither of which are done in France).

This entire experience is only possible because there are 30 families in the Hartford school district who are willing to open their homes and share their time and family for 2 weeks with one of these visiting students. It is absolutely awesome that we have such warm and inviting people in our district! It is clear that these families play a huge part in the continued success of this program.
Wisconsin School Board Week!
HUHS students benefit every day from the leadership and vision of our school board. Oct. 7-13 is Wisconsin School Board Week so take time to thank these dedicated school Leaders!

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.

Freshman Conferences with Counselors
HUHS counselors  will be scheduling  conferences  with  freshmen  students, starting September 24 and continuing through December. 

The purpose of Freshmen Conferences is to build rapport with students and help them identify both interests and skills to support their academic and career planning. HUHS counselors believe in forming and cultivating strong relationships with students so that we can best serve them during their high school career.  Student engagement increases when students understand that there are connections between their interests and their career goals.

  Counselors will meet with students during a 45-minute period, making every effort to schedule students during a course period where they are excelling. Students will be notified of their conference time two days in advance. If you have any questions, please contact your child's counselor.
Junior Conferences with Counselors
Dear Parents/Guardians of the Class of 2020:
 
You are invited to participate in a Junior Planning Conference with your child and school counselor.   This conference is designed to focus on talents, interests, and post-secondary planning.   The conference lasts 40 minutes and your involvement is essential.     Therefore, please make it a priority to attend your child's conference.
 
Items discussed in the conference include but may not be limited to graduation requirements, senior schedule, career plans, post-secondary options, ACT/SAT, and financial aid/scholarships.
 
Conferences will take place October through January. To schedule your child's conference, please contact the Student Services Office at 262.670.3200, ext. 214. Conferences are held during the regular school day (from 7am- 3pm). Please contact our office by October 31 to select your date and time.
 
Also, a Junior Student & Parent Night will be held at the high school on Wednesday, January 9, at 6:30pm. Counselors will give a presentation that will cover course selection details, assessment dates, college and career readiness plans, and other information pertinent to junior students. A panel of HUHS graduates will talk about their high school senior year and how they prepared for post-secondary plans. They will also talk about their experiences as they transitioned from high school student to their college or career path.
 
Sincerely,
   
Hartford Union High School Counseling Department

ACT Testing
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.

I will send one more reminder email the day before the meeting.

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.
