President’s Message

NOVEMBER 27, 2022

Hello Parents/Guardians,

I hope you all had a restful Thanksgiving holiday. A busy three weeks lie ahead so please read below to learn more about what to expect and where you can help.

First up, helping your student prepare for finals. Acalanes teachers and staff offer several helpful resources over the next few weeks. From Peer Tutoring to Wellness to Exam Jam and more, I encourage you to review the options here with your student and how to best prepare to finish strong this semester.

APC has two big volunteer events rapidly approaching where we could really use your help:

  • If you enjoy baking, please sign up here to donate baked goods for our Annual Staff Appreciation Cookie Exchange.  Staff look forward to this every year and there is no better way for parents to say Happy Holidays to our teachers & staff.
  • Not to be outdone, Finals Fuel is one of our sweetest traditions. There are multiple ways to support our wonderful Finals Fuel team so please click here and sign up today. Not sure what Finals Fuel is? Please read below to learn more.

Tuesday is  #GivingTuesday and LPIE is celebrating the power of education. Every day all of our students benefit from a variety of programs and resources that LPIE funds. From additional class sections, to student support, to the Wellness Center and 1:1 technology, AHS is fortunate to have the Power of LPIE behind it. For this year’s Giving Tuesday, the LPIE Board has put up a $150,000 challenge match – if you have not yet donated to LPIE this year, now’s the time!  Please click here to donate  and thank you for your support of our students!

This Wednesday Nov 30 at 6:30pm, College and Career is hosting an Out of State College Fair in the library. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about universities outside of California and what they offer. To sign up and learn more, read the College and Career section below.

The dedication ceremony of the Chris Huber Memorial Gym will take place Saturday, Dec 10 at 6:30pm in the main gym during the boys’ basketball tournament. APC has been honored to support the efforts of renaming the gym and this special dedication for our much-treasured Don 💙 We hope you will join us.

Acalanes Community Always,
Veronique Kuhner

PS – want to get in the holiday spirit?  Don’t miss this Thursday’s Winter Choir Concert in the PAC at 7:00.  You’ll be humming your favorite tunes for days!
