SPARK Assembly
On Wednesday, November 15, all 9th graders will go to the Little Theater during their Ethnic Studies/Social Living classes for the annual SPARK assembly. The topics covered during the SPARK assembly - discrimination, harassment, bullying, and their consequences; being an upstander; help and support at Berkeley High, and building a positive school culture - are very important, and we are committed to continuing to examine them throughout the year in our Ethnic Studies/Social Living courses. Presentation materials will be available on the BHS website soon after the assembly.

Moving forward, we will use the momentum from the SPARK assembly and encourage students to get more involved at Berkeley High School, stand up against any form of harassment or violence, and connect this to other events throughout the year. We look forward to this important work, and thank all students and staff for your support.
