The ACA Campus Clean-Up is scheduled for the first weekend of October. It will be terrific to get teams of students and parents socially-distanced in zones to help spruce up campus. While more details will follow, we are looking for zone captains to help out. Team ACA is also working on the creation of an Acalanes Alumni Network. As part of the effort, we are looking for “famous” alums (or ones with a great redemption story). Email Dawn Brightbill and Sarah Cusumano to let us know at email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com to get involved. We can’t wait to see how this effort grows!
Graduation is Thursday, June 4th, and Lafayette retailers have put together some great gift ideas to congratulate our AHS graduates. You’ll even find some great ideas for Dads too (Father’s Day is June 21). Additionally, local restaurants have created special family meals to celebrate. You can find more info on the Lafayette Chamber’s website. Buying local helps our Lafayette businesses survive and provides sales tax dollars to the City of Lafayette.
Thanks to your tremendous support, your donations of cash and food will provide 53,000 meals to our neighbors in need, far surpassing the goal our district set in partnership with the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano Counties. If you would still like to donate, it’s never too late. #DonsShowUp

Our local grocery stores, including Diablo Foods, Safeway, Trader Joes and Whole Foods, are going out of their way to support our community by creating safe spaces to shop. These workers are putting their own health and safety on the line so that we can feed our families. AHS Leadership is spearheading an effort to “thank a grocery worker” wherever you shop by dropping off a handwritten note of thanks.
