International Muffin Day

Do you like muffins? Do you like giving away muffins? Then you should come to the International Muffin Day club (H207, Wednesdays at lunch)! Our club goal is to give away as many muffins as possible on February 3rd, 2022, which is International Muffin Day. If it goes really well, we can even try to expand International Muffin Day outside of BHS, to other schools!

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
