Principal's Message

BHS Parents and Guardians,                                                                                       

“Positive people, positive communication, positive interactions and positive work and team cultures produce positive results. Every person, every career, every organization, every family and every team will have to overcome negativity, adversity and challenges to define themselves and create success. Optimism, trust, enthusiasm, love, purpose, joy, passion, and spirit to live, work, and perform at a higher level; to build and lead successful teams; to overcome adversity in life and at work; to share contagious energy with staff and students to bring out the best in others and in yourself; and to overcome all negative people and negative situations that threaten to sabotage your health, family, team and success.” –The Energy Bus, Jon Gordon. We have built and implemented amazing opportunities for our students and staff over the past few years, I am excited to focus our positive energy on those initiatives and continuing the great things that we have planned for Bayfield High School students.


Welcome Back!  I am looking forward to another great year and the opportunity to continue our work with an outstanding staff and incredible students. I can’t wait to see each and every one of you and hear about the great things you did over the summer, as well as celebrate the student successes that happened over break. 


If this summer has taught us anything it should be the importance of family and friends, I hope that each of you are able to spend the remaining time before we come back together you’re your families, hold them close and hug them tight. Rest and relax for the last few days of your break.  I am ready to work with an energized team to continue our focus on goals and action plans for the 2016-17 school year!



Please remember that school starts on August 23. Student schedules will be handed out on the first day of school and should be available on PowerSchool soon.


As always, my door is open, please feel free to stop by and say hello or share great ideas that will benefit Bayfield High School! I look forward to seeing all of you throughout the year at events and activities! GO WOLVERINES!!!


See all of you soon,


Leon Hanhardt, Principal
