SAT word of the day: abnegate(v) - To renounce (a right or privilege)


1. Students interested in taking Honors Algebra 2 or Honors Math Analysis next year must take the placement exam. If you are currently enrolled in an Honors course at BHS and will end the year with an A or B you do not need to take the test. Any other current BHS student may sign up on the sign up sheets posted on the math office H113. Any off-campus students planning to take the test should email Amy Burke at amy_burke at berkeley.k12.ca.us with their preferred testing date. The test will take approximately one hour and is to be given on Monday, April 5 and Tuesday, April 6 in H304 at 4:00. Please note, this exam is different from the exam being offered to all incoming 9th graders. It is being offered to current 9th, 10th and 11th grade students both enrolled at BHS and coming into the school in the fall.

2. This is the last week to register for the AP Tests given in May 2010. Forms are available through AP Teachers or from Mrs. Williams in C106. You may turn in the registration during lunch to 12:10 pm or after school to 4 pm at the Athletic Ticket window through Friday, March 19. Lines the last day will be long, do not wait!
