Welcome to the Howard-Suamico School District
Bay Port's Stadium Among 15 NFL Grant Winners
The Howard-Suamico School District was named among 15 national winners of a National Football League Foundation Grassroots Program grant for field renovation, the Green Bay Packers announced today. Renovation of the stadium at Bay Port High School, from a natural grass field to a synthetic turf surface, is underway.
“We are thrilled to be selected by the NFL for this opportunity,” said HSSD Superintendent Damian LaCroix. “To be one of only 15 grant honorees nationwide is a testament to the work of our staff and supporters in preparing a compelling application. The new turf field will have a positive impact on many community youth sports programs beyond Bay Port athletics.”

Bay Port Engineering Students Named Finalists in National Competition
Bay Port engineering students Erik Carstens and Nate Giese were selected as two of four national finalists in the teen division of the Future Engineers 3D Printing in Space contest last week. Although the Bay Port juniors did not win the competition, for their accomplishment of reaching the finals Carstens and Giese won a trip to Los Angeles to visit SpaceX and the Oscar-award winning digital visual effects studio, Digital Domain.
As part of their contest entry Carstens and Giese designed a digital 3D model of a tool they think Astronauts would need in space. After 10 national semifinalists were named, both Carstens and Giese made the cut to the final four. The students then participated in an online video interview with a NASA astronaut to describe their designs.
