BERKELEY HIGH ASB STICKER FAQ

1.Why should I purchase an ASB Sticker?
The savings with an Associated Student Body (ASB) sticker will save you money all year long! There are discounts for school dances, home football, soccer & basketball games as well as exclusive raffles. BHS has a rich tradition of athletic success and we believe that increasing student participation in athletics will renew JACKET PRIDE. We want to encourage more students to get involved with athletics whether as an athlete or fan. ASB funds are managed by the BHS Student Leadership, as elected by the student body.

2.Where & when can I purchase an ASB Sticker?
ASB stickers will be available beginning REGISTRATION WEEK in August. Once school starts, you may purchase your ASB sticker in the Leadership Office during lunch or after school. Sales will end in Mid-October. This will allow you to receive your JACKET PRIDE t-shirt before the Homecoming Game.

3.What happens if I lose my student ID card?
Students who lose their ID card will be able to receive another ID card from the Counseling Center and ASB Sticker from the Leadership Office. Each ASB Sticker is individually numbered so that they cannot be duplicated or used by another student.

4.What games can I attend with the ASB sticker?
You can attend all regular season home games at Donahue Gym or Jacket Stadium for FREE (GOLD

LEVEL). You will still need to get a ticket at the box office. Simply present your ID card with ASB sticker to the box office. Unfortunately, all home PLAYOFF games ARE NOT included due to league rules.

5.Why should I support BHS Athletics?
Berkeley High has as many as 1/3 of the student body participating on an athletic team each year. That

equals about 1100 students competing for the pride of BERKELEY HIGH! As a member of our student- cheering section, you will create a supportive atmosphere that will give our teams a competitive advantage. Wear RED & GOLD to every home game to represent the Mighty Jackets to the fullest!

6.I’m not a senior, so why should I care about the discount for dances?
If you are a JUNIOR or SENIOR you can purchase tickets to the Prom in the spring. We do plan on holding at least one other dance that is open to ALL GRADES. Simply present your ID card with ASB sticker to receive discounts to either of the 2-3 school-sponsored dances (Fall Dance, Winter Dance and/or Prom) at the time of purchase. Your ASB sticker entitles you to ONE discounted ticket.

7.When do I receive my t-shirt?
All students that purchase an ASB sticker will receive a JACKET PRIDE t-shirt in sizes ranging from small to

triple-extra large. We will order the t-shirts after you have purchased an ASB sticker. ASB sticker sales end in Mid-October. You should receive your t-shirt before the last week of October.

8.What is the BHS Spirit Song?

A) Juice the jackets, juice juice the jackets (what?!)

Juice the jackets, juice juice the jackets (what?!) (Chant continues throughout)

B) Go…. mighty jackets!

Go…. mighty jackets!

Repeat as many times as necessary to intimidate your opponent!

9. When do I receive my yearbook?
All students with a GOLD LEVEL ASB sticker will receive a free yearbook. Yearbooks represent all of the amazing accomplishments from the past year and the yearbook staff does a tremendous job of covering the events at BHS. They become available towards the end of the school year. We will work with the yearbook staff to ensure that your name is included on the list of students that purchased a yearbook. Yearbook orders tend to arrive in late May. Ms. Hollyman, 2017 faculty sponsor of yearbook, will announce via E-tree and the school bulletin when, where, and how to pick-up a yearbook.

Delegates Needed for the Election Convention!

8th Annual Berkeley High School

Election Convention

Little Theater – Tuesday March 7, 2017

Social Studies Classes are able to select and send their delegates to the convention. Deadline Feb 24. Here is a taste of a past conference!

What is it?

The Berkeley High School Election Convention is a grand exercise in politics and civic engagement modeled on the major party national conventions and other high schools that have excellent conventions. (Agenda on back)

 

What is the educational purpose?

Its educational purpose is to engender in students a deeper interest and sense of responsibility as an informed voter and active citizen.

 

What is its electoral purpose?

The convention and its delegates are given the responsibility of questioning and taking a primary vote on the top candidates to high offices – ASB President, Vice President, Chief of Service, Chief of Publicity, and School Board Representative. Candidates for BSEP, School Site Council, Class Presidents and Vice Presidents will also be introduced.

 

**DELEGATES FROM EACH SOCIAL STUDIES CLASS ARE NEEDED**

Maximum 5 delegates per class

 

Who are the delegates?

Delegates are representatives of every 9th-11th grade social studies class at Berkeley High. Each group of delegates will be assigned a state, US territory, or district and asked to dress up as a way to have some fun and simulate more closely the national conventions.

 

How are delegates selected?

In each of your class periods please discuss with students the responsibilities and requirements of the delegate. Then you may hold an election or appoint students.

 

GOT TALENT? It’s almost Showtime!

Visit the Leadership Office to sign up for auditions for the 2017 Talent Show. This event features 20 of the most amazing performers from BHS and is a great way to share your talent in front of a packed audience in the Little Theater. For more information, contact Mr. V or any member of the Class of 2018 Leadership team.
