Co-Presidents’ Message

It’s hard to believe that next week is the last week of school! Just a reminder that there will be no school on Monday since it’s Memorial Day and no finals this semester. Peer Tutoring is still available to help students with essays, projects or tests for next week.

Our Community Can’t Be Canceled efforts made it into the New York Times article highlighting the AHS Kresnak family’s double graduation. The campaign is going strong with the following updates:

  • Friday, May 29 at 6pm Let’s Celebrate Our Seniors with 2020 Dons, Forever Strong! Ring the bells for our seniors during their originally scheduled graduation date & time.
  • AHS Performing Arts Finish Strong Distance learning hasn’t stopped AHS creativity in the world of Drama, Choral and Instrumental Music with fantastic end-of-year performances. Hats off to all the PA teachers and students!
  • Home Delivery of Dons Show Up Spirit Thanks to student officers and class liaisons, each class has received some sort of spirit item drop-off to remind students that Dons spirit doesn’t take a break during distance learning!

We want to extend an extra special thank you to our outgoing APC Board Members Meg Fellner and Traci Reilly and outgoing 2020 Class Liaisons Kathy Hemmenway, Kat O’Donnell, and Ellen Seiler who will be closing out their tenure as Dons but will join the Dons Alumni family. These rock-star volunteers have collectively served Acalanes for over fifty years and their legacy of volunteerism is appreciated by us and the entire Dons community.
