A Letter from Our

BOARD PRESIDENT & SUPERINTENDENT Dear HUHS Community, For those of you able to join us at Graduation, I’m sure you’ll agree that it was a memorable day. Not only were our Class of 2018 graduates celebrated, but so were their parents, HUHS alumni (including 2 alumni from 1941!), veterans, and other esteemed guests. To all those who are honoring the accomplishments of their beloved daughters and sons, nieces and nephews, friends and neighbors, Congratulations! Graduation offers a point of reflection, and as we look back over the past year, there are a few items that deserve to be highlighted. Deb Reinbold

School Board President

Surpasses Goal!

Thanks to the HUHS community, Mr. Kasza’s Leadership & Project Management class was able to surpass it’s goal of collecting 1,000 stuffed animals within a month. With the addition of a few last minute donations, the final total was 1,421 toy items. Through Operation Christmas Child, the stuffed animals will be sent to needy children around the world and will add comfort and joy to their lives.

Timeline of the the school district

On Wednesday, May 30th the Richfield Joint School District No. 1 celebrated 150 years of service. The youth of the Richfield community had a huge Birthday Bash and Math & Literacy Night. While math and reading were the academic focus, student-created artifacts were the main display. A timeline of the history of the school district, inclusive of photographs, time capsule letters, and world history, created by the Art, English Language Arts, and History classes was on display. Further, the band and cheerleaders performed, and the night ended with Principal Carron being slimed! In addition to supporting families academically, students, staff, and parents were able to recognize the historical significance of the school district one final time before the district will unite with the Friess Lake School District to become the Holy Hill Area School District on July 1st.

On Tuesday, June 5th, staff, students, parents, alumni, friends, and family gathered at Plat School to celebrate its impact on the school community and, to say their final, “Farewell.” The evening began with student performances-- including an entirely new cheer about Plat from the cheerleading squad, a presentation by the administration and board, and an unveiling of the Plat Mural, designed and created by the students of Plat School under the direction of Art Teacher, Ms. Kassia Kostuch. The remainder of the evening afforded families the opportunity to tour the school, reminisce on good times and meet others who shared their love of Plat School. To understand the impact this country school had on the community, you needn’t look further than the attendance at the event, which boasted graduates from the 1980s, 1970s, and even 1932 graduate Gerry Flynn! Thank you to everyone who has contributed to touching the lives of our students; you will forever be in our hearts!

Future Plans: UW- Milwaukee for Finance or Accounting Associate School: St. Gabriel Favorite Class: AP Statistics Favorite thing about HUHS: The friendly environment and variety of co-curricular and classes I can take. Activities: NHS, Writing Center, and Math Club “Molly is a great student and an overall sweet girl. She always has a smile on her face and takes interest in what we are learning and the lives of those around her. She always works hard and is creative in her work and makes learning fun. I told her she is not allowed to graduate and has to stay back to take my class again next year because I enjoy having her in class and just talking to her. My favorite memory is when she got me a coffee mug that says “I really, really, really love my dog” as she has heard me talk about my reservations in getting a puppy this past year.” ~Sara Ruiz, Spanish Teacher

He brought smiles and laughs to the class almost daily.” ~Katie Herrmann English Teacher

Dear Richfield Middle School Families, After months of planning, meetings, and discussions, Richfield Middle School is really taking shape. In consolidating, both school districts saw the opportunity to create an educational environment that’s even better than we can already offer individually. With the plans that are taking shape for the future, I believe we are already making the new district stronger. Already this school year, students from both Richfield and Friess lake have had opportunities to meet each other and begin to form friendships. Each school has hosted joint dances and movie nights to facilitate relationship building between the future classmates. In late May, current 4th - 8th grade students from Friess Lake spent the day with their Richfield counterparts learning about empathy and healthy social interaction. The future guidance counselor for Richfield Middle School led the study body in an anti-bullying activity and students watched a popular movie about treating others with respect and acceptance. The day continued with lunch, recess, and team trivia. Students led each other on tours of the building and the day culminated with a final trivia showdown where a team of mixed Friess Lake and Richfield students took the crown. It was a great start to the relationship between staff members and students.

Dear Friess Lake School Families, The staff of Friess Lake Elementary School welcomes all student and parents to what promises to be an exciting year- filled with new adventures, new opportunities, new friends, and lots of great learning experiences. There will be more detailed specifics as we get closer to the start of school, but here are a few things of note: Supply lists can be found on the Holy Hill Area School District website

INSIDE OUT MOVIE & WONDER MOVIE DAY On Friday May 18th, elementary students gathered at Friess Lake to watch Inside Out and Wonder. Future middle school students gathered at Richfield Elementary to watch Wonder. The movie day was sponsored by the AODA grant written by a group of student leaders from the soon-to-be Holy Hill Area School District in the fall of 2017. Discussions promoting positive self-image, self-esteem and acceptance were held after the movie. Middle School students also participated in a Trivia Day following the movie event.

On May 29th, students from Friess Lake and Plat School went to the zoo for their yearend field trip. The zoo field trip is a tradition that has been ongoing in each district, and this year was one more opportunity for our students, staff, and parents, to see and get to know new school friends!
