It’s been great to see Acalanes Community Always spirit on display throughout the first week of school! Seniors woke up to decorated front doors on the first day of school thanks to class liaisons who made door decorating kits for senior families. If you haven’t seen the awesome video highlighting childhood photos of hundreds of seniors, it may help you get into the Back to School spirit. Next week, sophomores will experience ACA spirit thanks to their liaisons who have planned an awesome Sophomore Scavenger Hunt that will take them to local hot spots. Finally, be on the lookout for “ASB Spirit Card Welcome Here” blue decals at your favorite Lafayette businesses. Students with ASB cards will get discounts or free gifts when they show their cards. Want to join the fun? Email Dawn Brightbill & Sarah Cusumano at aca@acalanesparentslclub.com to get involved.

APC is excited to be part of Acalanes Community Always! We loved engaging in the Community Can’t Be Canceled campaign but we are even more enthusiastic about how ACA can sustain this spirit and connectivity between Acalanes and the greater Lafayette community. Even though students won’t be on campus at the start of the school year, we will be looking for ways to connect us all through campus clean-ups, Alumni engagement, partnerships with local Lafayette businesses and more. Want to join the fun? Email Dawn Brightbill & Sarah Cusumano at aca@acalanesparentslcub.com to get involved. We can’t wait to see how this effort grows!
