Bear tracks 
Hey Golden Bears! During the month of April we had many events that went on.. Our biggest event was Prom. Aside from that we also had, our Pep assembly, Harvey play, Yearbooks were released, a backpack drive, Standing Against Racism Day, and Senior Fun Day. 

Harvey Play
To end the school year with one last play, Bartlett’s theatre group put on a play about the storyline of a man who was delusional and had an imaginary rabbit as his best friend. His family and friends were concerned about his condition and he was sent to rehab. As the kind gentleman he is, he twisted the problem. Overall, the play was a success and it was enjoyable by all who attended. 

Backpack drive
The Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) Club ran a backpack drive during the month of April to collect backpacks for teens that are LGBT at the Covenant House. The backpacks included school supplies and hygiene products. Overall, they collected about 20 full backpacks. 
 
Standing Against Racism 
April 29th is Standing Against Racism Day. At the girl's and boy’s varsity soccer game, Mr. Prince made an announcement to talk about how Bartlett stands against racism. People who wore orange got into the games for free. The girl’s game was at 5:15 and the boy’s was at 7:15. Although both teams weren’t victorious the event was still a success.
