Co-President’s Message

OCTOBER 18, 2020

As we watch our kids walk around in shorts in the 90+ degree heat, it’s hard to believe we are more than halfway through October! With just over two weeks before the election, we tried to delve into a bit of politics last week as we watched the candidates for AUHSD Governing Board answer tough questions from the public. Catch up on the candidates (including two parents from Acalanes!) and their answers here

On Friday, Principal Bell gave our parent community an update on Distance Learning and Hybrid Learning during our October Dons Dialogue. He also shared valuable updates on Library Resources and upcoming student activities. Watch the replay here

This Thursday, October 22nd, you won’t want to miss Acalanes’ first Women In Leadership night with special guest Kelly Galuska. Hear her story as a woman in Hollywood and get inspired! Speaking of women in leadership, tune in to LPIE’s podcast featuring Acalanes’ very own Katherine Walton! The podcast touches on Katherine’s role as a “teacher on special assignment,” which is funded by LPIE. If you haven’t yet donated to our education foundation, please join us in supporting LPIE and the vital programming they provide for our students every single day.

And finally, mark your calendars for October 28th’s Night at the Drive-In at the Solano Drive in! While we are far too young (echm!) to be a part of the original “drive-in” generation, I know we’ll all appreciate taking some time out for a good flick! Check out the ACA section for more information on the fun family night!

Wishing everyone a great week!

Acalanes Community Always
