Hello Berkeley High Community!

For the last year, Associated Student Body (ASB) Leadership has been 
working diligently to promote and foster unity throughout Berkeley High 
school. Berkeley High has a very diverse culture and as student leaders 
we serve to better represent the student population.

For the last few months the Sophomore Class Leadership Team along, with 
much of ASB Leadership, has worked to bring about an event called the 
Make- A-Wish Gathering. Although based on the famous Make-A-Wish 
Foundation, the Gathering has no affiliation with the organization. *The 
Make-A-Wish Gathering strives to promote unity by extending the 
opportunity for every student at Berkeley High to have their wish come 
true.* Beginning _March 16, 2016_ every second period ambassador will be 
distributing star cutouts. On the star you will be granted the chance to 
wish for something that will better the Berkeley High Community or 
something that willhelp benefit someone else. Examples of wishes include 
having the M building gym open at lunch or wishing for supplies for a 
teacher. *In this manner, we hope to better represent the voices of 
students.* Having wishes based on community also helps make changes at 
BHS and better our campus

Once you have cast your wish, all wishes will be reviewed by the Make- 
A-Wish committee. The Make- A- Wish Committee is a collaboration of both 
teachers and staff who will review them. Wishes will then be chosen 
based on feasibility and affordability. Wish Granting will commence the 
week of the Gathering on April 18th, 2016, with smaller wishes being 
presented to students in class. *On April 22, 2016 the entire school 
will gather in the Community Theatre to hear some of the larger wishes 
granted.* This will be a fun event with performances, speakers, and much 

The Make-A-Wish Gathering cannot happen without your efforts 
though.*Each class has a goal of raising $1,500 with a total of $6000 
for the entire school.* This money will be used to fund the wishes and 
ultimately go towards the betterment of our community and campus. Visit 
Generosity.com page for more info: http://igg.me/at/ps-oZ0EzEIU

We hope you take the time to consider what you changes you would like to 
see in the Berkeley High Community.

Thank You,

Genevieve Saldanha
