CAS Graduation
Monday, May 26, 2008, Noon
Berkeley Repertory Roda Theatre

Dear Parents of Graduating CAS Seniors,

      Our children have had the wonderful and unique opportunity to be
part of the small school, CAS, at Berkeley High School. Through this
experience, they have bonded closely with CAS teachers as well as other
students. To honor their graduation, CAS students will have their own
graduation in addition to the larger all-BHS graduation at the Greek

      The CAS graduation is a special event for these students. It will be
held in the Roda Theatre at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre on Monday, May
26, 2008 at noon. Food is served in the courtyard at Berkeley Rep
beginning at noon. At 12:30, families may enter the theater where the
ceremony begins at 1:00. There will be an intermission for dessert and
coffee at approximately 3:00, followed by the rest of the ceremony. During
the graduation, there will be short speeches from the graduates,
performances by students, and words of praise from the CAS staff. We will
also be honoring outgoing teachers.

         While some families have already purchased tickets by mail, you
may now order tickets through CAS counselor Molly Offermann at Berkeley
High. If the $9 per ticket cost is a hardship for your family, please fill
out the ticket order and include a note. (Extra form is below)

         Because the total cost of graduation comes to about $100 per
student, only part of which is covered by the ticket sales, we are asking
each family, if able, to donate the remainder when you purchase tickets.
Gifts for the teachers, as well as a class photo, are part of this

         Traditionally, junior and sophomore families coordinate the
savory food and staff the event so that senior families can enjoy the
ceremony. Freshman and sophomore families also volunteer to clean up at
Berkeley Rep. Senior families have one last sweet task, along with
appreciating our children. We are asked to bring a dessert to graduation

SO . . .Please order your tickets
    Make an extra donation if possible
          Plan on bringing a dessert

              Looking forward to a wonderful celebration for all of our
