*Berkeley High School Bulletin for Friday, November 18, 2016*


*Remembering Benny Diambu-Wright*

Benny Diambu-Wright was a 2016 graduate of Berkeley High who was killed
last week.

Dear Friends of Benny: We are working to put together a video tribute to
honor Benny and to share with his family. If you would like to contribute
photos and/or a voice message for the video, please see Ms. Gonzalez at
lunch today in room G203 for more information on how to do so.

Benny's memorial service will be held this upcoming Tuesday (November 22nd)
from 4-8PM at Colonial Chapel at 2626 High St in Oakland. Benny's family
would be honored to have you attend.


*Transgender Day of Remembrance*

The GSA has created an interactive exhibit for Transgender Day of
Remembrance. It will be in the C Building Gallery Friday 11/18 and Monday
11/21. The Transgender Day of Remembrance serves several purposes. It
raises public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people, honors
the lives of transgender people who might otherwise be forgotten, and gives
transgender people and their allies a chance to step forward and stand in
vigil, memorializing those who’ve died by anti-transgender violence.
Teachers are invited to bring their classes to the exhibit, and everyone is
invited to view the exhibit before school and during lunch.


*Saturday School*

Saturday School is tomorrow Saturday November 19th. If you have unverified
(UNV) absences that need to be cleared from the month of October, come to
the Attendance Office to sign up before school, during lunch, or after
school. Up to 30 students can sign up on a first-come, first-served basis.

Saturday school can clear up to 6 UNV absences.

Saturday School will meet in H207 from 9-12pm. Students must bring a snack
with them. Please visit the Attendance Office page on the BHS website for
more information and a copy of the Saturday School contract.


*New Segment on KBHS-TV News*
