Women at Work 2014

Seventy-four of our seventh and eighth grade girls attended the Women in Manufacturing Career Event put on by NWTC.  This event was designed to highlight non-traditional careers for women. The event showcased careers in Robotics, Welding, Gas Utility Service Construction, CNC Machining, and Sheet Metal Fabrication.  The girls were able to receive detailed descriptions of the training needed as well as the duties the career required. NWTC professors provided the knowledge and demonstrated skills needed, while the girls were able to try aspects of each career and receive hands on practice.  We are so thankful to NWTC for providing this wonderful event for our middle school girls.

Visit from former Bay View Student

Former Bay View student, Brad Kemp, visited Mrs. Pehowski's choir classes on Wednesday, October 29th.  Brad graduated from Bay Port in 2008 and has since gone to Columbia University in Chicago to gain his Bachelor of Arts in Music with an emphasis in Composition.  Brad composed the song "Arise" for the finale of the HSSD 5-12 Festival of Choirs.  He worked with the choir students to help make his music come alive and answered many questions from the students.  We invite you to  come hear his song be sung by 700 singers next Monday.

On October 9th, students donated money to Heavenly Hats and in return could wear hats all day in school.

Principal's Message


Students aren’t the only ones in a digital transformation; so are parents, teachers, and our school office.  Only a few years ago we sent home a weekly paper newsletter, paper report cards, and we sent home flyers or alerts with students or put them on TV or the radio.  Now we have our Bay View Webpage, our on-line newsletter, Bay View News which is updated instantly, emailed daily announcements, PowerSchool, our on-line grade book, phone alerts, and more recently Schoology, Facebook, and Twitter.  You can support your child best if you are digitally transforming with him/her.  Be sure to take advantage of all of these resources to stay informed and stay connected.  Like us on Facebook at Howard-Suamico School District and follow us on Twitter at @hssdbv and me personally at @principalmeyers  #the principal’slearningtoo.

Your Child's Attendance

Did you know

Good attendance shows potential employers that your child is reliable. Research suggests that children who attend school regularly could also be at less risk of getting involved in antisocial behavior or crime.
