Here are the morning announcements for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday,

*Message from the BHS Administrative Team*

Our administrative team was recently made aware of the existence of a
social media account generated by a small group of BHS students that
contained deeply discriminatory, racist, and offensive content. *We want to
be clear that posting, sharing, and supporting messages that express
racism, sexism, anti-semitism, xenophobia, and ableism is unacceptable;
such behavior deeply harms our community and our student code of conduct,
and there are consequences to those actions.*

We will continue to meet with student groups, and encourage you to reach
out for support from your teachers, administrators, counselors, safety
officers, and other adults on campus who you trust if you ever feel unsafe
or concerned about something on social media.

*Special Issue of the Jacket*

The *Jacket* newspaper is looking for submissions for the upcoming issue
celebrating Chicanx & Latinx heritage. Please send illustrations, photos,
blurbs, poems, and other writing and visual art samples to Nina Price at

most consistent positive forces I see!

music in the C building last night between classes during Back to School

people that are putting time and effort into mending the broken hearts of
many and addressing what needs to be done. I know it feels like no one is
on your side, but if you are at your low you can always call on me; I will
be there to help lift you up!

·       Finally, teacher Devon Brewer wants to shout out honest
students: Many students have turned in wallets, ATM cards and phones that
they have found around campus. Thank you for taking the time to return
people's lost belongings. It's a small way we can all take care of each
