Encourage your student to check out the module in Canvas tomorrow to see the 43 clubs on campus and find out more about them. Club meetings will begin on Wednesday and students will receive a spreadsheet in their Canvas inbox this week with times, days and Zoom links.

Applications Due Friday, Sept 25 – Pen Pal Program with Stege Elementary
Acalanes High School students and Stege Elementary School students can join in a pen pal program! We will match a student from each school to one another based on common interests. There will be weekly letters or emails to your buddy with different themes each week. Once you fill out the google form, there will be an expectations meeting at lunch via Zoom Wednesday, Sept 23. Interested students MUST be at the expectations meeting to participate unless you specify ahead of time that you cannot attend.

If I can ever do anything to help you or your student, don’t hesitate to reach out!
