*A Message from the BHS Administrative Team *
Students, we want to acknowledge that today, across our country, people are
choosing to take national action by participating in a Day Without
Immigrants boycott. We here at BHS do stand as allies with our immigrant
students and staff, and we encourage those of you who are not immigrants to
stand together with those who are. You can do this by listening, asking how
people are feeling about recent national events, and letting them know that
you are a safe person to talk with. We as a school will be continuing to
work on plans and a protocol to keep students safe in the event of any
Immigrations and Customs Enforcement activity in Berkeley. We were aware of
the worries yesterday spreading on social media regarding ICE activity in
the area, and we want to promise that we will investigate any rumors
immediately and let you know if there is any real cause for concern. We
stand with you, and we stand together.


*NO SCHOOL on February 17 and 20 *
All Berkeley Unified School District schools and offices will be closed on
Friday, February, 17, for Lincoln's Birthday Holiday and on Monday,
February 20 for Presidents' Day. Classes will resume on Tuesday February 21.

*SENIORS: Final Date for Senior Portraits*

Seniors: If you haven't taken your senior portrait for the yearbook, you
have exactly one more opportunity to be included. Our school photographer
will be on campus Thursday, February 16, and you can schedule an
appointment online. Go to www.abcschoolportraits.com and click on
Portraits. There is no charge to be photographed for the yearbook only.

*Reminders from the BHS Safety Team *
Here are a few reminders from the safety team: our expectation is that
students will leave the Campus Green and M Building areas immediately after
6th period has ended. Students should proceed to Bridge, the CCC,
teacher-led tutorials, the library the courtyard, or off campus. We will
clear the entire campus at 3:45. Thank you for your cooperation as we work
to ensure a safe campus for all students and staff.

*Have You Used Your BHS Organizer Lately? *
On page 79 in your BHS Handbook (also known as the Organizer), you will
find a drawing from AHA senior Justin Owens as well as the following study
& time management tip: Organize your information in a way that works for
you. For more helpful tips and more great artwork from BHS students and
alumni, open your organizer today!

*Talent Show Auditions *
"Hello", Jackets! Get in "Formation" for the annual Talent Show auditions.
Don't get "Stressed Out"! Bring your instruments, voice, talents and maybe
your "Coloring Book" to try out for the St. Patrick's Day Talent Show. Be
the next performer to send your "Cranes in the Sky" by signing up for an
audition outside the Leadership Office.

*SENIORS: Community College Options*

Seniors: Are you curious about the community college pathway? Come to the
College & Career Center on Thursday during 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th period to
learn more about the community college application process, costs, studying
abroad, transferring to a 4-year institution, and more. To attend, you must
get a pass signed by your teacher; passes are available in the CCC.

*COLLEGE/CAREER: Black College Expo Information Session *
Do you want to learn more about this weekend's Black College Expo in
Oakland? A representative from the Expo will be on campus Wednesday,
February 15, 2017 during lunch in the CCC. Students who attend the
lunchtime info session will hear more about historically black colleges and
universities, including college life, financial aid, scholarships and
internships. Students who attend the info session will receive a free
ticket to the Black College Expo on Saturday, February 18, 2017 from 9-5 at
Laney College.

Bring your lunch - come right after 3rd period - don't be late!
