You May Qualify For Reduced PSAT Testing Fees & Other Discounts

The Great State of California with avocado as its state fruit and artichoke as its state vegetable is providing free food for all K-12 students. Given that all students on campus have access to free breakfast and lunch, many of you may not have completed an EZ Meal Application to qualify for a variety of fee waivers or discounts based on household income. Don’t fret, you still have time to complete the form in order to qualify for discounts on PSAT registration fees, school activities among other tests. Have your family complete the form at  secure.ezmealapp.com as soon as you can. The form will take a few days to process.

MEATLESS MONDAYS

It’s Monday, that means it’s Meatless Monday! What’s that? Meatless Monday means actively choosing to not eat meat one day a week. When it comes to climate change, eating less meat is one of the best things you can do as an individual to make a difference. Top climate scientists agree that reducing our meat consumption is essential to mitigating climate change, but you don’t need to go vegan to protect the planet. It’s not just at Berkeley High, it’s a global movement. Take the challenge!

Notification of Non-Discrimination Policy

The Berkeley Unified School District is committed to providing a hostile-free working and learning environment. The District prohibits discrimination, harassment, bullying, intimidation, and retaliation, based on actual or perceived race, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity/expression, pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding/lactation status (related medical conditions), religion, color, national origin (including language restrictions and possession of a driver’s license (issued under Vehicle Code), ancestry, immigration status, physical or mental disability (including clinical depression and bipolar disorder, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, epilepsy, seizure disorder, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and heart attack), medical condition (cancer-related and genetic characteristics), military and veteran status, marital status, registered domestic partner status, age (40 and above), genetic information, political belief or affiliation (unless union related), a person’s association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics, or any other basis protected by federal, state or local law, ordinance, or regulation in any program or activity it conducts or to which it provides significant assistance.

Discrimination is different treatment based on a protected characteristic in the context of an educational program, work or activity without a legitimate, nondiscriminatory reason that interferes with or limits the individual’s ability to participate in or benefit from the services, activities, or privileges provided by the District or includes an adverse employment action.

Hostile environment harassment occurs when a target is subjected to unwelcome conduct based on a protected characteristic, which is both subjectively offensive to the target and would be offensive to a reasonable person of similar circumstances/characteristics and is sufficiently so severe, and so pervasive to interfere with or limit an individual’s ability to effectively work or to participate in or benefit from the services, activities, or opportunities offered by the District. Harassment may take many forms, including but not limited to, verbal remarks and name-calling, graphic and written statements, or any conduct that may be threatening or humiliating. Harassment based on any of the above protected categories is a form of unlawful discrimination and will not be tolerated by the District and can result in disciplinary action against the offending student or employee.

Upon witnessing an act of discrimination, harassment, bullying, intimidation, and retaliation, based on actual or perceived protected characteristics, school personnel are required to take immediate steps to intervene when it is safe to do so. Once a school/office has expressed notice or reason to know of such conduct, whether carried out by employees, students, or third parties, it should take immediate and appropriate steps to investigate, determine what occurred, take prompt and effective steps reasonably calculated to end the conduct, eliminate a hostile environment, if one has been created and prevent the conduct from occurring again. These steps should be taken regardless of whether an individual makes a complaint or asks the school/office to take action. Complaints are protected from retaliation. The District prohibits retaliation against any person who files a complaint or an appeal, reports instances of noncompliance, discrimination, harassment, bullying, and intimidation, or who participates in the complaint-filing or investigation process. This nondiscriminatory policy applies to all acts related to school activity or school attendance within any school/office under the jurisdiction of the Berkeley Unified School District. 

For more information, or to file a complaint please contact:

District Title IX Coordinator/Compliance Officer Berkeley Unified School District, 2020 Bonar Street, Room 117, Berkeley CA 94702 Phone: (510) 486-9338; Email: complaints@berkeley.net

Our Monologues 2022

Dear Berkeley High (students/parents/staff),

Our names are Riya and Anna, and we are the co-directors of the Our Monologues production 2021-2022. We are both Berkeley High School seniors in the BIHS program, and we are so excited to share the news of the upcoming production this year!  As many of you know, the BHS community is full of creativity and expression. Each year, there are a variety of incredible performances, yearly traditions, and events here on campus. Two years ago, the previously called Vagina Monologues were replaced by what we now call Our Monologues. Our Monologues is a student-written and directed performance that includes spoken word, dance, and song. This production celebrates the talent of Berkeley High students while bringing light to experiences that are often minimized or overlooked even within our own communities. The diversity and inclusivity the cast and monologues hold are of great importance to us. Each year, it has become more representative of the students whose stories have not been told yet. This school year, the directors (Riya Jivan and Anna Pelegrino) will be putting together this iconic performance for the Berkeley High community in the spring of 2022. Our goal is to create a performance that is even more inclusive, diverse, and representative of the real Berkeley High community, the vulnerable and unfiltered truth. 

And we would love for you to be a part of it. Any and all submissions are welcome, and Monologue submissions are open until September 11th, 2021. Auditions will be held during mid October and we will cast within the first week of November. 

Everyone has a story worth sharing. We hope you all become inspired to submit yours.

 For more information visit our website ourmonologuesbhs.wordpress.com, or check out our past submissions tab for some inspiration.

Thank you, we look forward to hearing from you!

Riya Jivan and Anna Pelegrino

MEATLESS MONDAYS 

You don’t have to go vegan to make a difference, go meatless monday! What is Meatless Monday? Simply eating vegetarian on Mondays, or any other days of the week. Our school is joining the global Meatless Monday campaign to make our impact. Why Meatless Monday? For the health of our planet, animals, and ourselves. If everyone in the U.S. ate no meat or cheese just one day a week, it would be like taking 7.6 million cars off the road! By eating 1 lb less of meat, we save more water than not taking a shower for 6 months, 16 pounds of grains, and 4 pounds of greenhouse emissions!

Find delicious FREE vegetarian food in the cafeteria, find tasty plant-based recipes at https://www.mondaycampaigns.org/meatless-monday/recipes and use the Zero Waste club’s Meatless Map that shows you all the vegetarian and plant-based options around campus (https://bhszerowaste.wixsite.com/website/menus)! Every meal counts. Make yours today!

Here at the BHS Meatless Monday Campaign, we care a lot about food. We know food is something that many of us hold closely to our hearts. We’d love to know more about your experience with food! This is why we have created a survey to gather information about the eating habits of our community and students’ opinions on the current BHS school lunch system, so that we can create a campaign that supports students whatever their situation may be.

 We would greatly appreciate it if you help us with our mission by filling out this completely anonymous survey

One of the librarians, Ms. Rosenkrantz, Ms. Irby, or Ms. Fitzhugh, will always be there to support you with anything you need – finding a great new independent reading book, help printing, accessing an assignment.

MEATLESS MONDAYS 

You don’t have to go vegan to make a difference, go meatless monday! What is Meatless Monday? Simply eating vegetarian on Mondays, or any other days of the week. Our school is joining the global Meatless Monday campaign to make our impact. Why Meatless Monday? For the health of our planet, animals, and ourselves. If everyone in the U.S. ate no meat or cheese just one day a week, it would be like taking 7.6 million cars off the road! By eating 1 lb less of meat, we save more water than not taking a shower for 6 months, 16 pounds of grains, and 4 pounds of greenhouse emissions!

Find delicious FREE vegetarian food in the cafeteria, find tasty plant-based recipes at https://www.mondaycampaigns.org/meatless-monday/recipes and use the Zero Waste club’s Meatless Map that shows you all the vegetarian and plant-based options around campus (https://bhszerowaste.wixsite.com/website/menus)! Every meal counts. Make yours today!

Here at the BHS Meatless Monday Campaign, we care a lot about food. We know food is something that many of us hold closely to our hearts. We’d love to know more about your experience with food! This is why we have created a survey to gather information about the eating habits of our community and students’ opinions on the current BHS school lunch system, so that we can create a campaign that supports students whatever their situation may be.

 We would greatly appreciate it if you help us with our mission by filling out this completely anonymous survey

 Estimated time to complete: 5-8 minutes
