BP Spirit of Excellence-8538BV Spirit of Excellence-8635

 

 

 

 

Bay Port High School and Bay View Middle School in the Howard-Suamico School District were named the “Spirit of Excellence Award” winners as the top high school and middle school in the state demonstrating excellence in leadership development, school spirit, sportsmanship, and service to school and community. It is the first time in the history of the statewide award that a middle school and high school from the same district were honored in the same year.

Schools across the state submitted detailed portfolios highlighting their achievements in various areas including leadership, service, and lowering the achievement gap. The portfolios were then judged by a team of school and affiliate organization leaders from throughout Wisconsin.

The award is presented by Wisconsin Association of School Councils, Wisconsin Athletic Directors Association, Wisconsin Association of Middle Level Education, and the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association. The schools celebrated the achievement with award presentations at school pep rallies on Wednesday, February 21, 2018.

“Our student council does an excellent job promoting school spirit and provides countless opportunities for student involvement,” said Bay Port Principal Mike Frieder. “I’m proud of our excellent group of student and staff leaders.”

“This is a great honor for our middle school and our entire school district,” said Bay View Middle School Principal Steven Meyers.  “For our students to be named at the top of the state out of over 200 middle schools in Wisconsin is a real tribute. Our staff continuously gives beyond what’s expected and our students respond in exemplary fashion.”

Bay View was also a “Spirit of Excellence Award” winner in 2013 and 2015.
