Today! The BHS Neurodivergent Student Union will be meeting today, Wednesday in G203 at 3:30 pm.  Did you know that Berkeley is the birthplace of the Disability Rights Movement?  Part of Berkeley High's diversity is its disabled community, which includes students who learn differently, those who live with anxiety or depression, autistic students, allies, students who have physical challenges, and many more!  We are proud to own our disabilities because they are part of who we are!   Please join us after school today in G203 if you would like to contribute your voice in activism for the rights of disabled people everywhere.  Mentors will be on hand to continue our discussion about advocating for accommodations in college and planning for the Day of Mourning Vigil on March 1.

 If you have questions, please reach out to Ms. Bell in room D151.

Calling all writers! Looking for a different type of English elective? Want to get published? 
Next year's juniors and seniors can sign up for the class "literary magazine"!
This English/elective for juniors and seniors does double duty as a creative writing course and a publishing class. We will publish two issues of a literary magazine each year, and each class member will both develop a portfolio of their own short stories, creative nonfiction and poetry as well as serve in a specific function on the publishing team: editing, marketing, layout and graphic designer. Please email Ms. Faur at arynfaur at berkeley.net or stop by H207 for more information. If you want priority for sign ups, please send her your student ID and full name.

"Physics! It's at the heart of everything! 
So you should learn it. Current sophomores and  juniors interested in taking AP Physics 1 (algebra based, non-calculus) next school year should come to a short information session at the beginning of lunch in G214 on either Wednesday or Thursday this week." 


AP Environmental Science: 
Thinking about taking AP Environmental Science next year?  Attend a lunch meeting with Ms. Harm on Thursday Feb 21st in Room G216.  Get your questions answered and learn why so many students love this class.

Interested in working with your hands and project based learning?  
Come to the Carpentry Shop in G112 at lunch on Thursday, February 28th for an information session.  Learn about our new Carpentry and Digital Design classes.
Throughout the course of the year, students in the carpentry program will be engaged in a variety of individual and group projects, exercises and readings to build up their skills in construction, design and critical problem solving. This will include traditional methods of building with hand tools as well as cutting edge digital fabrication and modeling tools. Students will also be exposed to the range of career opportunities across the fields of fabrication, design and construction. Emphasis will be on hands-on projects that have constraints to guide their design but allow for individual creativity.

Do you speak two languages fluently? Are you a senior? Did you pass the California standards test in English language arts as proficient level or above? 
If so, you may qualify for the Seal of Biliteracy. If you are interested in an application for the Seal of Biliteracy for your high school diploma, please see Ms Henrickson in M209, Ms Fullerton in M208 or Ms Stewart in C107 for an application. Applications are due March 22, 2019.

BHS is offering a brand-new English elective next year for 11th and 12th graders from all learning communities. This course introduces students to LGBTQIA+ (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, asexual, intersex, etc.) literature and culture. It is a yearlong course with English credit and elective credit (pending). You don't have to be part of the LGBTQIA+ community to enroll- come learn about experiences outside your own!
