Student Mock Election…last chance voting on 10/6 at lunch

Student Mock Election in class, but last chance voting will take place on Thursday, October 6 at lunch in the main courtyard.


BHS will be one of hundreds of schools across California participating in a mock election before this year’s November election. This helps support new legislation that allows 16 year olds to registers to vote and any current students who are eligible to vote. This is a student mock election for president, US Senator for California, and seven ballot measures.


Youth Speaks will present The Bigger Picture at BHS on November 2 during 1st, 2nd, and 3rd periods. Have your teacher sign up your class today before it fills up!

The Bigger Picture is a collaboration between Youth Speaks, and the University of California, San Francisco Center for Vulnerable Populations designed to combat the rising epidemic of Type 2 diabetes by empowering youth to change the conversation about the disease, and work to change the social and environmental factors that have led to its spread.

The Bigger Picture (TBP) school visit program provides young people with critical information and resources regarding the social determinants of type 2 diabetes, health outcomes, and health disparities.  The assembly features live spoken word, short films from the campaign, and an interactive presentation that introduces young people to the environmental drivers of Type 2 Diabetes.
