PSAT/NMSQT for Juniors
College-bound juniors may wish to consider taking the PSAT/NMSQT, which is the best preparation for the SAT and entry into the National Merit Scholarship Corporation programs. It is an optional exam that measures reading, writing and language, and math skills developed over many years that are important for success in college. Students do not have to recall facts from literature, history, science or math formulas, as this test measures reasoning and critical thinking skills.
All students who take the PSAT/NMSQT will receive an official score report. They will receive scores in critical reading, mathematics, and writing skills and will see how their scores compare to those of other students across the country. Students will be able to see which answers they got right or wrong. They will also receive information about how they performed on specific academic skills.
Students who take the test will receive personalized online SAT practice through Khan Academy based on their test performance.   Learn more at www.collegeboard.org/psat .
Registration for the PSAT is due Friday, October 5, at 3:00pm in the Student Services Office. The exam will be given on Wednesday, October 10, from 7:25am to 11:35am.  At the time of registration, students will be given a student guide that includes test-taking help and a full-length practice test.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Student Services Office at 670-3200, ext. 214,or  rachel.janczak@huhs.org

Hartford Union High School (HUHS)  is proud to announce two students are semifinalists in the 2019 NATIONAL MERIT® SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM.  Seniors, Matthew Becker and Lucas Simon are two of 16,000 finalists competing for 7,500 scholarships worth more than $31 million that will be offered spring of 2019.

Juniors are entered into the contest by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®) which screens the scores and determines the semifinalists. Becker and Simon will submit a scholarship application, academic record, school and community participation, leadership abilities, employment and any other honors or awards received to be considered for one of the 15,000 finalist spots in February of 2019.
"National Merit is a tremendous recognition for Matt and Lucas as well as Hartford Union High School, they have worked very hard," Elizabeth Figarsky, School Counselor.

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.

Strategic Plan

Dear Parents/Guardians:
HUHS completed the development of a three year Strategic Plan in January 2018, and will now focus on implementing the plan to achieve its four goals.
Just as we called upon several diverse groups to help develop the Strategic Plan, we are asking diverse groups to serve on one of four Goal Teams to implement and achieve the Plan Goals. We invite parents/guardians to participate.
A brief summary of each Goal is below.  
  • Goal 1 Student Achievement: students will meet career, college, and life readiness success indicators by graduation.
  • Goal 2 Branding: HUHS will be viewed as the community's "high school of choice."
  • Goal 3: Stakeholder Engagement: HUHS will increase each stakeholder group's engagement and satisfaction (students, faculty/staff, parents/guardians, community).
  • Goal 4: Master Facility Plan: Develop a master facility plan for the school buildings and grounds that encompasses renovations/upgrades; effective use of existing spaces; and recommendations for curriculum, instructional practices, and co-curricular areas. 
For more information on the strategic Plan visit: Website
If interested, please send an email to Teri Kermendy, Communications Coordinator at   teri.kermendy@huhs.org  to sign -up for one of the four Goal Teams. Goal Team membership is limited in number. A selection process may be used to keep each Team size manageable. We will notify everyone who signs-up of his/her status.
Thank you, and thank you for your continued support of HUHS.

Hartford Rotary
Host Families Needed for 2018-2019 
Hartford Rotary's next inbound exchange student will arrive in late August, and be with us, and be a student at Hartford High, until early summer 2019.  We will be lucky to host 17 year old Monika Adamczyk from Chelm in eastern Poland.  Besides being fluent in English she is competent in Spanish.  We would like to get commitments from three families in the Hartford area, each to host her for 3 to 4 month.  Rotary pays a monthly stipend to help Monika have some spending money, and the school chips in with lunch money.  Ask your family if they would like to have this fun and educational opportunity, while providing Monika with the same  opportunities as other young adults in the home.  

Monika is now a sophomore at a Lyceum in Chelm, which is near the Ukrainian border.  She is the only youngster at home weekdays, and her studies emphasize chemistry, biology, Spanish, English and Polish language and literature.  Her older sister studies in Wroclaw and is home weekends.  The sisters get along well and with their parents emphasize the outdoors with hiking, biking and sailing.  She thinks she might like to study dentistry or orthodontology in college, but thinks a year in the US will open up other opportunities for careers related to medicine.  She's fine with household chores, says she is neat and tidy, but isn't into cooking.   She will be a great addition to any receptive family in the area.

In The News

Three victories.  One new North Shore Conference Relay Record.
"Sprinters we've got.  Irene Wilson and Olivia Meinberg are both a joy to watch.  Strong and graceful and very, very fast.  Senior Shayna Krist is swimming her senior heart out this year.  Freshman Paige Dulski and Slinger Freshman Caitlin Simonz are worth watching into the future", said their coach.

The OriOwls won the first two events.  Olivia Meinberg, Caitlin Simonz, Paige Dulski, and Irene Wilson won the 100 Medley Relay, and five minutes later Olivia, Paige, and Irene joined Shayna  Krist to win the 200 Free Relay with their season best time of 1:43.86. 
The rest of the meet saw improvements by the rest of the team all night.  They scored seven points more than last year.  That's a decent improvement from a team that is still very young. 

The explosion came at the end of the meet. Speed Demons Paige Dulski, Irene Wilson, Shayna Krist, and Olivia Meinberg destroyed a 13 year old 100 Free Relay Conference Record by over a second. 
"We need to generate some excitement in this community about this sport.  We have some top talent, now we need more Hartford and Slinger families to send their little kids into competitive swimming programs so we can have the depth needed to score against these large, tough teams." Pete Meinberg

Only two more home meets remain for the OriOwls.  Let's fill the Birdbath with noise on Tuesday night (9/25) at 6:00pm.  You want to see these athletes in this great sports venue.

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.
