Events not listed, but planned:
ASB Speaker Series. ASB Leadership would like to continue the speaker series into the upcoming school year with student clubs getting a chance to create their presentation and choose their own speakers. If this is not possible again, we will attempt to host a spring “symposium” of speakers around a topic of significance and high relevancy. If you are a sponsor of student club and would like to host a speaker series, please contact Mr. V.
Intramurals at Lunchtime hosted by ASB Leadership on Wednesday. We are planning to host regular intramural activities at lunch for 4 weeks at a time rotating between basketball, soccer, maybe volleyball or board games or other activity. If staff are interested in supporting this activity, contact Mr. V.
Assemblies/School Day events. ASB Leadership is assisting with a large school assembly in each of the first three months and one more in the spring. It is our belief that these events will build a student’s sense of belonging and connection to BHS. We recognize the potential for lost instructional time, but are hoping that advanced notice and split-period bell schedules will alleviate worries. Our time together as a large school is precious and significant, so we will treat it as such, knowing that staff may be making compromises on their plans.
In addition to the large school assemblies, we will host events that take students away from instructional time. For almost all events, ASB Leadership will provide a field trip permission slip that must be signed before students have period absences cleared with the attendance office. If you believe that a student has abused their privilege to participate in these events, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. V.
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.

Dear BHS Community,
We are looking forward to hosting our annual week of activities to share in the many cultures at BHS under this year’s theme of “Art, Activism, & Culture”. We will celebrate the culture and diversity of the BHS community through art and activism. We plan to have lunchtime activities such as a student club fair and art show, as well as a show of performances to close out the week. We are open to hosting all student groups and organizations that want to get involved and also have a few specific requests for support.
If you have any questions or want to get more involved in Art, Activism, & Culture Week, please contact Simelia, Melissa and/or Mr. V.
Thank you for your support!
