Senior Grad & Spring Survey
BHS is asking for your feedback on the 2021 graduation as well as senior-related activities in the spring. Please share your thoughts and suggestions in a survey shared by Mr. V on Monday. We hope to share the results of the survey by winter break and/or follow up with any next steps in early January. Thank you,
The survey will close on December 14th at 8:00 am.
As more information about senior activities and events pops up, we will post it all on the Senior Letter, share via email and the BHS e-tree, as well as any BHS socials.
We have a new deadline for Seniors to submit their 2 senior portraits to the BHS Yearbook. You now have until midnight on January 1st to upload your photos. Seniors, check your email for the portrait guidelines and for the eShare link to upload photos.
If you do not submit a senior portrait, BHS Yearbook may use your junior year photo instead. If you need tech support, dm us on Instagram @berkeleyearbook or email us email@example.com and we can figure something out.
