3. Are you interested in how Art and Science interconnect?  Do you want to create a solo exhibition of artworks and writing?  Consider taking IB Visual Art- a class about interdisciplinary art, writing, thinking and research.  You may not realize but IB Art is open to ANY Junior or Senior at Berkeley High in ANY Learning Community, and can be taken for college credit. Come to an information meeting in A104 Friday, March 23rd at lunch to see student artwork and talk to students currently taking the class. 

4. It's true - there really is a competition for the class with the best attendance, and the winner will really get a whole theater rented out to them to watch a movie together!  Here is the latest in the attendance race!: Seniors are pulling up the rear at 91.01%.  If you've got senioritis you'd better check yourself before you wreck yourself! Juniors are in third at 92.84%.  Still within range of a win.  And neck-and-neck vying for the win are sophomores and freshmen with only .07% separating them - sophomores are at 93.67% and freshmen have the lead by a hair at 93.73%.  
Really at this point any class still has a chance to win!  So encourage your friends to GET TO CLASS.
