FFA Grant Awarded to Ashley Strupp
Congratulations to chapter historian Ashley Strupp for receiving an *SAE Grant from the Wisconsin FFA Foundation. Ashley applied for this grant in order to purchase a new shearing stand that will help her better work with and care for her flock of sheep. She also plans to purchase a ram to replace the breeding stock she lost this past spring. Ashley manages her herd of approximately 10 sheep which she shows and sells at the Washington County Fair. Ashley also raises hogs for the fair and helps out on her family's custom calf raising operation.

Ashley's $1,000 grant was sponsored by Equity Cooperative Livestock Sales Association. She was one of 47 students across the state awarded a collective total of nearly $34,000 in grants to help start or improve their SAE projects.

*SAE stands for supervised agricultural experience, projects students develop in order to put into practice the career and leadership skills they develop through classroom and FFA experiences.

Mrs. Burns Geometry classes went down to Mr. Dzikowski's Tech Ed room to see the real-life connect of Geometry. Geometry is used in the real world every day. Mr. Dzikowski was willing to speak to all our students about the use of Geometry in his field and how important it is.

They transitioned into indirect measurements to measure items they could not reach with mirrors!
In Wisconsin, only 42% of all public High Schools teach computer science. Nationally Computer Science is taught in only about 45% of public high schools. Did you know that in Wisconsin alone has 6,460 open computing jobs and the average salary is $80,546? Don’t worry, HUHS not only teaches computer science, we have two AP computer science courses as well! Pictured is AP CS students working with math students on coding.
Mrs. Parker’s AP Literature classes had high tea to close out the reading of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest. The work is considered a comedy of manners and is a satirical look at the pretentious Victorian society of the time. High tea was created to ease the hunger between the lunch and dinner hours. It became a very important social tool; it was important to be invited to tea or to host influential people or nobility for tea.
Students sipped tea, and curbed their hunger between breakfast lunch with muffins, croissants, and cucumber sandwiches.

Useful tool for college bound students: College Scorecard has info about costs, ACT score requirements, grad rates, % of students who come back for their 2nd year, % who graduate and final debt. Good tool to use for any school as you can use it for any state and public or private college (tech colleges too)! https://collegescorecard.ed.gov/

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 $52.00 and the ACT with Writing is $68.00.  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 most testing dates. The test dates for the 2019-20 school year are:

                                                February 8, 2020 (NOT at HUHS)            
April 4, 2020                                  June 13, 2020                                July 18, 2020

Note:  Please keep in mind all juniors are required by state law to take the ACT at the high school on March 3 (no cost to the student on March 3).   When considering whether or not to sign up to take the February 8 or April 4 ACT, it may be best for students to take the March 3 test, then decide whether or not to retake the test in June or July based upon March results.

What is the status of my application?

This is a common question that we hear this time of year at the UW HELP office. Unfortunately, we are not able to see the status of an applicant's application. Two things that we can check for them are (1) whether or not the online application was submitted and (2) whether or not the application fee was paid. Since this is a frequently asked question we did work with our campuses to create a chart so students can have a better idea as to when they can anticipate hearing back from one of our 26 campuses - once all materials are received. This chart includes the date in which campuses will start reviewing a completed application and approximately how long that review process will take.  View Timeline
