SAT word of the day: achromatic (adjective) - colorless   ADMINISTRATION






*1. Interested in AP environmental science?


Want to know more about the course?


Come to G201 Tuesday at lunch, and talk to Ms. de Brito or Ms Mertens


Dates:  March 15, 22



2. Interested in going to Law School? Are you an activist who believes in
Restorative Justice? Do you think students should have a voice in discipline
issues at Berkeley High? Then check out the Student Court! Join the fight
against the school-to-prison pipeline which feeds the American
prison-industrial complex. Many are not aware the USA has more people behind
bars than any other country in the entire world. Our democratic values of
Justice and Liberty have been hijacked by corporate interests; and it is up
to youth activists to bring about the necessary change. For more info about
the Student Court come by H104! Enrollment for the Student Court Leadership
Class is currently open for the Spring semester. Participants will receive 5
units of elective credit. Under-represented minority youth are especially
encouraged to join the cause.

appreciate your patience during this busy time.

The first, the best!!  The music and story that rocked the world is as
relevant today as ever.  This is the gospel according to Judas Iscariot, who
betrayed Jesus.  Judas tells his side of the story in this contemporary,
irreverent production, filled with epic rock music, poignant ballads, and
wild spectacle.  What if Jesus showed up on Telegraph Avenue today? 


Big ensemble dance numbers!  Exciting showcase for strong singer-actors!
