Hello BHS Community,


Last week, we held our 2nd annual Service Fair and had over 500 students
visited booths of the many student clubs and community organizations that
attended the fair. The message is to get students active in the community
and in touch with possible new interests each may not have considered as of
yet. Just in case you missed the fair, below are invitations to join a few
of the many organizations that attended...


UC Berkeley Design & Innovation Club (Haas School of Business)

Teams comprised of Educators, Design Professionals, UC students, HS students
will use design methods to find ways to improve post-secondary opportunities
available to under-resourced youth. The Innovation Challenge will take place
at BHS on Saturday, April 13th from 9am to 6pm. Students can pick up an
interest questionnaire in the BHS Leadership Office. We are attempting to
create about 25 teams for this challenge to use a $1 million grant to
improve education and college access.  Contact Mr. Villavicencio at
jvillavicencio at berkeley.net for more information or the registration form.

acid reflux, brain fog, seasonal hay fever, behavioral problems,
constipation, etc. holistically and non-invasively.  Using a sophisticated
software program we integrate modern physics with Chiropractic principles.

operations, and develop innovative solutions to city problems.  Essentially,
they will define and name their city, create laws, run political campaigns,
