Hello BHS community,

We are doing another round of presentations and requests for students to 
join the school wide leadership program. Please refer students who 
display an interest in efforts to improve their community or have a 
strong interest in planning events that bring the student body closer 
together. We are seeking to have 100% representation from all five 
learning communities on leadership and need your help to increase the 
number of candidates applying this spring. If I were to shorten my pitch 
to a haiku, it would be:

A Voice For Students

Together, A Jacket Fam

Their Passion Sparks Change

*Upcoming Events*

*March 6: Elected candidate *applications are due. These positions 
include Presidents, Vice Presidents, Chief of Service (Holiday Meal), 
Chief of Publicity (announcements), School Board, School Site Council, 
and Berkeley Schools Excellence Project. Applications are available in 
Leadership Office or by request via email.

*March 19: First annual BHS Student Summit*will take place at the Teen 
Center. This is a student led initiative to create a list of the top 
three issues at BHS and identify potential solutions. The items from the 
summit will help to create an action plan that will be presented in the 

*April 16: Election Convention*. Social Studies classes will have the 
chance to participate in an authentic experience of democracy by hearing 
speeches from the candidates for school wide leadership

*April 21-24: Voting Period.*We will distribute ballots (possibly by 
scantron) to second period classrooms for voting and announce the 
winners by the end of the week.

*May 1*: *All other applications are due*. These positions are Class 
Deputy, Secretary, Treasurer, and Commissioners on the Executive Team. 
More information available in the office or by email.

*May*: Information will be released about*Link Crew,* a freshman 
transition program, that will be introduced this fall. It pairs 
upperclassmen, Link Leaders, with a group of freshman. This program will 
support all intervention efforts and other freshman activities by 
creating a mentoring system and series of monthly activities designed 
specifically for freshman.


There are three leadership teams; Executive, Student Senate, and the 
Class teams for each grade. The Executive and Student Senate student 
leaders earn 10 credits for the year, spending Monday mornings or 
lunches in meetings, and plan events in their area of passion. In 
addition, there are possible evening commitments such as BSEP/SSC/School 
Board meetings or events such as Back to School Night.

The Class teams meet weekly during the lunch period and earn 5 credits 
for the year. In the past, they have planned dances, talent shows, lunch 
time activities, among other events.

Have a great day!
