Our next shout out goes to AMPS senior Chaltu Rashid and BIHS senior Jada Carter for being honored with the Next Generation Award at Berkeley's 6th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Breakfast on Jan. 16. Chaltu and Jada were recognized for representing the ideals of Dr. King through their individual contributions to their school communities, and for their shared commitment to bringing about positive change.

Introducing the "You Are My Other Me" Club
A new student club has formed to bring together students from the BHS Newcomer program, who are recent immigrants to the United States, with other students on campus. The You Are My Other Me club will build community through games and activities. Only together and through common experience can we fight for our civil rights. The club will meet on Wednesdays starting on February 1 at lunch in Ms. Taylor's room, C-206. Join the club to have fun while working together.
Marguerite Fa-Kaji, Catherine Ference and Dylan Kaufman are the parent-volunteer facilitators of the Etree; please direct any questions about the Etree to them at bhs-owner at lmi.net<mailto:bhs-owner at lmi.net>.
