    This year's mission statement for BHS: The Give Next Team of Berthoud High School hopes to alleviate the feelings of helplessness many youth experience as they battle mental health and safety issues. With the assistance of Serimus Foundation and Bohemian Foundation, we intend to support nonprofits that provide specific programs and services which empower youth to overcome or cope effectively with mental health challenges or safety issues which threaten a youth’s mental health.

    Today, we:
    Finished our presentations
    Evaluated the assignments in this class
    Completed our final:
    PCE Paper 1: Issues of personal significance RE-MIX
    This was the original assignment: In a short written piece (500 words plus citations and bibliography in MLA format), your goal is to identify a particular problem people face, justify why it is important, indicate the state of prevailing knowledge about the issue (i.e. find some good research that addresses the topic), discuss what’s currently being done about it in our area (needs to be specific to agencies or programs), and explain what program or solution you’ve found that you would most advocate for the implementation or funding of (continued or new). Strong proposals may ultimately influence others in their giving or activities. Your goal here is not to change the world in one day, just to start changing it by identifying a piece that is broken and how we might consider fixing it.
    Do this to your paper (no bibliography needed this time): Now that you’ve experienced a number of both logical and emotional pleas in videos, writing, and in person, make 3 significant edits to your paper that you believe would make it a stronger argument for your cause. Can you shorten parts and make them more impactful? Can you provide a stronger statistic/reason people should help? Can you make a logical or emotional appeal that would make your issue more important to a person you’re trying to draw in? Is there a new solution or program that you would now advocate for?
