Students from Mrs. Calderon's 18-21 Year Old Transition Program sold Valentine's Day candy arrangements to the employees at Quad Graphics this week. This is their classroom business where the students take part in everything from designing/ creating the arrangements to advertising, to selling them. A big thank-you to the employees at Quad Graphics whose purchases helped raise over $1,000 for the transition program. The money is used to support the students in their community-based activities. Great job students. The arrangements were gorgeous!

2020-2021 Course Selection

February 10 Homeroom:
Freshman, sophomore, and junior students will view presentations outlining the course selection process for the 2020-21 school year and receive course selection worksheets.  

The Academic and Career Program Guide and course selection presentations are on the HUHS Academics web page.  The Academic and Career Program Guide is available through electronic copy to upperclassmen.   https://www.huhs.org/academics/acad-guide.cfm

Students will have from February 10 through February 24 to enter their course selections into Skyward Student Access. Online access will open on the 10 th at 2pm and close at 8pm on February 24 th .  

Parents are asked to review course selections with their child and help ensure careful consideration is given to these choices. Students are encouraged to have conversations with their teachers about course selection so that readiness, skill levels, and interests are aligned with choices.

Course selection worksheets and presentations can be found on the HUHS Academics web page under Services and Counseling.  https://www.huhs.org/academics/courseselection.cfm

February 24 Homeroom:
Freshman, sophomore, and junior students will review the course selection worksheet with Homeroom teachers and make sure the courses have been accurately entered into Skyward.  Any student who has not entered their courses into Skyward will do so in Homeroom on this day.

Questions or concerns regarding course selection should be directed to the student’s counselor.
Seniors Attending a University of Wisconsin School in the Fall
After students are admitted to a UW campus, they are invited to participate in Regional Placement Testing.  Students find out their appropriate level of math, English, and foreign language to begin in college as a result of taking the tests.
Students  register online   for Regional Placement Testing beginning February 1. Regional Placement Testing allows students to take the test close to where they live so they don’t need to travel to the campus they’d like to attend. Also, students need to register for only one placement test even if they have been admitted to different UW campuses or if they change their mind about which UW campus to attend. All UW campuses have access to each student’s scores.
Students should be intentional when selecting a site and date. Students can change or cancel their registrations. However, it’s often difficult to do so because popular sites fill quickly and changing is impossible after registration deadlines pass.
There are two options for taking the placement tests. Students may register for paper exams or computer-based exams. The exams, questions, and timing are the same, although there are additional fees for the computer-based exam. The computer-based exam provides an on-screen scientific calculator—no other calculator will be allowed during the computer-based exam.
A driver’s license, state-issued ID, passport, or high school ID containing name and photo may serve as the student’s identification at the testing site.
This is the schedule for testing day (all times are approximate):

Seating, orientation, and math testing 8:00 – 10:00 a.m.
Break 10:00 – 10:10 a.m.
English testing 10:10 – 11:50 a.m.
Break 11:50 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Dismissal of those not taking a foreign language test, followed by foreign language testing (French, German, or Spanish) 12:00 – 1:00 p.m.

Placement test scores are shared with students when they participate in their summer orientation and registration session. It’s important for students to take the placement tests in the spring so that the results are ready for summer registration, since some campuses do not allow students to register for classes until they can see the test results.

The Greater Milwaukee College Workshop
The Greater Milwaukee College Workshop is a free event for high school students and their parents. Attendees can pick from 12+ presentations covering all aspects of planning for college. They will learn from the experts about financial aid, ACT prep, essays, college admissions, and college athletics. Check out the website and details for the Sunday, March 1, workshop at Concordia University. It is held from 12:00pm – 3:30pm.

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:
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

University of Wisconsin-Stout School of Hospitality Leadership
We are excited to welcome students from around the Midwest (and the world) into our globally ranked Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management program, our only-one-in-the-nation Golf Enterprise Management program and our industry-integrated Real Estate Property Management program.  
While we have been busy this Fall building out new curriculum for students to succeed in their chosen fields and identifying innovative international relationships for students to experience education outside of the traditional classroom environment (USA-Japan Hospitality Summit) , we continually focus on what makes us unique – creating extraordinary education value to help students pursue their goals after graduation. From collaborating with globally recognized companies to helping our students find themselves ( Stout Stories - SHL ), we are focused on creating those opportunities that help set our future leaders apart from everyone else!
