Have You Checked Out the Pirate Nation Directory?


Bay Port Pirate Nation, the digital community for Bay Port and Howard-Suamico alumni to connect, recently launched its new alumni directory.

Now is a great time to make sure all our alumni know about this feature, as we're currently in the middle of holiday card season! We invite you to check out the directory and see if there's anyone you might want to add to your list this year.

Through the directory, you can submit your name and look up your former classmates to see what they are up to nowadays. You can even reconnect with friends you haven’t heard from in awhile.

This feature comes in addition to all the other benefits of Pirate Nation, which offers regular updates, an alumni directory and volunteer and mentorship opportunities. We also regularly publish blog posts and other news updates on all the great things happening in the Howard-Suamico School District community.

If you haven't already signed up for Pirate Nation, doing so is quick and easy. When you join, you can choose to be included in the directory and receive periodic email updates on district news and events, class reunions, local points of pride and profiles of Bay Port alumni who are making a difference in the world around them. You can also learn more about how you can get involved and contribute to the lives of current Bay Port students.

In Howard-Suamico, we are incredibly fortunate to have so many alumni and supporters who truly back our mission as a school community. Pirate Nation gives us yet another opportunity to keep you and all our other alumni informed and engaged. As always, we thank you for being part of our story.

Alumni Invited to Take Part in Bay Port Homecoming Oct. 6

IMG_9273.jpgThere's nothing quite like homecoming in the Howard-Suamico community. It's an exciting time for students, faculty, staff, parents and community members alike. There's a chill in the air, the leaves are changing and students are busy taking part in the events of Spirit Week. 

But really, homecoming is about our alumni from throughout the years coming home to Bay Port High School. It's a time to celebrate friends and memories made during your high school years.

To that end, you're encouraged to attend this year's football game on Friday, October 6 at 7 p.m. The Pirates will take on De Pere in a Fox River Classic Conference rivalry game.

Homecoming is an event that's special not just for current students, but also our alumni and the entire Howard-Suamico community. We hope you can take part this year by joining us for the game on Friday night!
