Most Important
Testing the Wave System
Today at 1:55pm, students were able to hear the WAVE System being tested.  The WAVE System helps improve communication at the start of an armed intruder incident. As soon as the WAVE button is pushed, a detailed alarm message indicating the location of the incident is transmitted by radio, email, text, and telephone to First Responders immediately, without any dispatch, delay or confusion.  The emergency message is also broadcast over the PA System, which the students heard today during the test. Safety procedures were also discussed with the students as well as the importance of only pushing the WAVE buttons in an actual armed intruder situation. 

As always, the safety of our students and staff is of highest priority, and building student understanding and awareness of our safety practices is a critical component in keeping our campus safe.  Thank you for your support in our safety efforts here at HUHS

Junior students who register online for the optional PSAT/NMSQT test can receive a copy of the PSAT/NMSQT Student Guide for testing. Registrants can pick up a guide to the Oct. 16 test in the Student Services Office. 
Attention parents of volleyball players! On Thursday, October 3rd, some of the upper level culinary students will be sharing a few appetizers for you to try, between 5:30pm-6:15pm outside the gym doors, in the main hallway. Don't skip dinner, however! This is just an opportunity to sample a few FREE hors d'oeuvres prior to the game!
Events
HUHS staff volunteered to help package over 100,000 meals at the United Against Hunger event last night. Each meal will go back to members of our local Washington County community who are in need. #UnitingForceForGood United Way Of Washington County #WEAREHARTFORD

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:

October 26, 2019                           December 14, 2019                       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.


National College Fair
The National College Fair will be held on Sunday, October 6, at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee. The fair runs from 12:00pm – 3:00pm, will host over 200 colleges, and has free admission. This is an excellent chance to meet with college representatives from around the country.
Go to https://www.nacacfairs.org/ attend/national-college-fairs/milwaukee-national-college-fair/ to receive fair details, avoid lines onsite, and share contact information with your choice schools. 


Wisconsin College Fair
The Wisconsin Education Fair is coming to Arrowhead High School on Tuesday, October 15, from 6:00pm – 8:00pm.  Over 100 different colleges, universities, technical schools, trade schools, and military representatives are available to provide information to interested students.   Go to http://www.wefs.org to register for a bar code that allows you to speak longer to a representative and not have to fill out any of the information cards at the table.


College Application Tip
  Save the speech. Tell the tale.  No need to stress out about the college application essay or be nervous if you think of it as a conversation or a story about yourself. You aren’t giving a speech to thousands of people but someone in the Admissions Office who really wants to hear it!   The essay is a story that means something to you and if you are able to convey that meaning to Admissions, you’ve done the job.
 
If you’d like help with your college essay, English teachers are available in the Writing Center during 5 th and 6 th period Flex Tuesday through Thursday.  Ms. Yu is available during Resource   in the Writing Center Tuesday through Friday.

College Goal Wisconsin
  West Bend High Schools are hosting College Goal Wisconsin, an organization that provides free assistance to Wisconsin’s college-bound students, on October 9 at 6:00pm in the West Bend East Cafeteria. The event will offer assistance to students who are completing and submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The federal government requires a FAFSA from all students seeking financial aid to pay for college, including grants and loans.

Students from all area high schools are invited to attend.
 
Dependent students, or those born after Jan. 1, 1996, should bring a parent with completed federal income tax returns for 2018 (if filing) and W2 statements. If a parent isn’t available or the federal income tax is not completed, students should still attend so they can begin the process.  There will be a drawing at the event for a $1,000 scholarship.
 
For more information on additional dates and locations, what to bring, and more, please visit www.CollegeGoalWI.org
