Berkeley High School Bulletin for Wednesday, November 2, 2016
NO SCHOOL on Monday, November 7 and Friday, November 11
Students: Next week, there is no school on Monday, November 7, which is a Staff Development Day, and there is no school on Friday, November 11, which is the Veteran's Day holiday. That means next week only has three school days for students: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Have an amazing experience this summer!
Are you a 9, 10, or 11th grader interested in having an amazing experience abroad this summer? Perhaps you would like to, but aren't sure how you would pay for it? Well, your opportunity is here! Mexico? The Caribbean? Africa? Asia? You can choose your own adventure with the organization CIEE. Come to C335 at lunch tomorrow (today, November 3) to learn about exciting experiences you can have this coming summer, with lots of scholarships available.
Open Pool!
The Jacket Pool will be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-5:00 for open swim beginning Tuesday, November 8.
Morning Sports Report
Last night in NCS playoff action, the Jacket girls volleyball team lost to top seed James Logan. Though they will not continue in the playoffs, we want to congratulate the team for a great season!

Last Friday, our Varsity football and water polo teams fell to Bishop O'Dowd, but our JV football team defeated Bishop O'Dowd 26-20. On Saturday, the girls varsity volleyball team competed in the San Ramon Valley tournament and went 1-2, losing to Acalanes and James Logan but beating Carondelet.

Tryouts for Winter Sports -- which includes boys & girls basketball, boys & girls soccer and boys & girls wrestling -- begin November 7. You must have a cleared packet to participate in any tryouts. Athletic packets can be cleared in the AD office on November 2 and 3, 2016 (lunchtime and 3:30-4:30) in the Athletic Director's office, room J-207 (above the Jacket Stadium box office). If you already cleared a packet, and/or played a Fall sport, all you have to do is pick up a yellow card to take to tryouts: come to the clearing dates and there will be an 'express line'.

Tryouts for winter sports begin on Monday, November 7. For details, visit the BHS website and click on the Athletics tab.

YouthSpeaks Presents "The Bigger Picture"
Today we welcome to the Little Theatre "The Bigger Picture", a collaboration between Youth Speaks, and the University of California, San Francisco Center for Vulnerable Populations.

The program features live spoken word, short films from the campaign, and an interactive presentation that introduces young people to the environmental drivers of Type 2 Diabetes.
