News & Announcements


Hello Acalanes Parents,

I’m Michele Colaco, one of your two Acalanes LPIE Representatives for the 2021-22 school year. I have a son who is a Freshman at Acalanes and a daughter in seventh grade at Stanley.
This is my third year on the LPIE Board. In addition to serving as your Acalanes Representative, I also help with the Social Media communications for LPIE. I originally joined the LPIE team to get a better understanding of the challenging funding situation facing our California schools. In my roles, I have seen firsthand how vital LPIE is for our students, our schools and our community.
The more involved I’ve become, the more impressed I am with the close partnerships LPIE has with the schools. This is especially true at Acalanes, where LPIE donations support 15 electives plus critical enrichment programs such as counseling services, wellness services and college level labs, just to name a few. 
Your support of LPIE makes a world of difference for all of our students at Acalanes.  Please feel free to reach out  if you have any questions, comments or suggestions and remember that EVERY donation, regardless of size, counts! Our goal is 100% participation this year. Thank you for your support of LPIE and our DONS!
If you have not yet had a chance to make a donation to LPIE, you can do so via the Webstore or

Best wishes for a great school year!
