EDUCATE...EMPOWER...ENGAGE

Please join us!

When: January 11th from 6:00-7:30pm

Where: HSSD District Office

What: Body Positivity


Social media has a powerful influence on how we define "normal," "beautiful," and "attractive." Too often, we strive for perfection when perfection is unattainable. Join us to learn about body positivity and preventive actions to keep our youth feeling confident in their own skin.


REGISTER HERE

Registration for each event is highly encouraged in order to provide resources for all who attend. You can complete registration for each event using the QR Code in the flyer, or by visiting the District website and going to the Student Services Department.

Please contact Angela Buchenauer, Director of Student Services, at angebuch@hssdschools.org with any questions.

IB Program Survey

Every five years the International Baccalaureate (IB) program requires IB authorized schools to conduct a program evaluation. One part of that evaluation is to gain feedback from the school community on those elements of the IB program that the school implements well and those elements that are in need of further improvement. Bay Port’s IB program would appreciate your help in this process by completing the IB Program Survey prior to January 20, 2023.


For more information please contact Chad McAllister, IB coordinator, at chadmcal@hssdschools.org.

SHOE FUNDRAISER

  • Good news! The shoe drive has been extended!!!


    Because of logistics issues with trucks and drivers, they cannot schedule a pickup for our shoes yet. So please - keep those shoes coming by going through your closets AND SPREADING THE WORD. Word of mouth to others has been a HUGE push in our collection lately. Please share the news through social media, email, or worth of mouth that our collection drive has been extended and new/gently used shoes are STILL being accepted in the Bay Port Rotunda.


    Thank you, PIRATE Nation, for helping to collect 1,375+ pairs of shoes for our Shoe Drive so far!

    Please think about going through your closet sometime during Winter Break and bringing in your gently used shoes to the Bay Port Rotunda in January. They are repurposed to 24 under-developed countries to help their citizens create a path out of poverty.

    Share the word with family and friends - the more shoes the more people we can help! Shoe us the love this holiday season!


*Ski boots and skates do not qualify as shoes - sorry!
