The HU Guidance Department has completed the Program of Studies for the 2016-17 school year. A huge thank you to Ann Laporte for making this happen! We are proud to announce through the hard work and creativity of many of our teachers Hazen Union will be able to offer 50 different elective courses for our students. In addition to these incredible options there are other changes to some of our other offerings you will want to make note of.
For those of you who may be asking what a program of studies is let me briefly explain. The program of studies is written for students and families to outline general and specific information regarding curricular offerings and services at Hazen Union School. It is an educational planning guide designed to help students make informed choices about high school courses as well as assist in planning and refining their plans of study.

Girls State Applications Due March 18
HARDWICK - For young women in the 11th grade who live in the Hardwick area, March 18th is the deadline to apply for Green Mountain Girls State (GMGS) through American Legion Auxiliary Unit 7. At least one candidate will be selected to represent ALA Unit 7 during Green Mountain Girls State June 18-23, 2016, at Vermont Technical College in Randolph (room and board) as well as time at the State House from Saturday throughThursday. The $250 fee for the candidate selected through the application process to attend GMGS will be covered by the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 7.
Girls State is a nationally recognized and prestigious leadership development program for young women throughout the United States sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary. It is a nonpartisan program that teaches young women responsible citizenship and civic engagement.
High school girls, who have completed their junior year, are eligible to apply to become an ALA Girl’s State program participant. ALA Girls State participants spend an intensive week of study, working together as self-governing citizens and learning how to participate in the functioning of Vermont’s local and state government in preparation for their future roles as responsible adult citizens. Participants spend time campaigning for local and statewide office, writing bills, and passing resolutions. Girls also have other ways to be engaged and fully participating citizens of their independent “Girls State.” Then they get to put what they have learned to use when they attend a mock-government session at the Vermont State House as part of their ALA Girls State experience.
For an application or more information, please contact Patricia Tedesco by emailPTe1218@aol.com or phone/text 802-793-4276. (www.alagmgs.com)
