Acalanes Community Always (ACA)

Thank you so much to Linda Choi, Mendy Gonzalez, and all the volunteers for leading the planning of Friday’s car rally! Such a fun event for our graduating seniors and we appreciate all of their work to make it happen!

We plan to be in the AHS garden on Tuesdays from 5:30-7:30pm during the weeks of Jun 11, 18, 25; Jul 16, 23, 30; and Aug 6. We will be working on weeding and hopefully, later in the summer, harvesting. If you'd like to come and help, please take a moment to sign up here.

When we start to harvest we hope to have enough to share with our extended AHS family - staff and families. Please sign up on this form if you are interested in being notified about picking up produce. Keep in mind that pick up times will be during our work parties and we may not be able to give you much notice! Alternatively, you can just stop by on a Tuesday evening to check in, hang out, and see what is growing. We will be mulching for weeds when we return in August so we’ll need cardboard again. If you are able to donate, please remove all tape and labels. It can be dropped off in room 201 before school is out or in the hallway outside the farm (in front of the autoshop classroom door) after that.

Thanks for all of your support! If you have any questions, please reach out - Have a great summer!

The AHS Community Can’t Be Canceled campaign, initially created in 2020 by Acalanes Leadership, was a successful effort to generate spirit and a great sense of belonging between Acalanes and the greater Lafayette community during the pandemic and beyond.

From “Let’s Paint This Town Blue” to the Senior Car Rally and all the individual class spirit efforts in between, it helped to pull us together. Going forward, ACA • Acalanes Community Always will replace this effort and we hope you’ll join this Acalanes Parents Club effort and get involved!

Other ACA initiatives in the works:

  • ACA Days – On-campus Lafayette community fair to look forward to when campus is open to all
  • Dons Spirit Team – Be part of an effort focused on increasing our Dons Spirit 
  • DonsAlums – Facebook network for Dons Alumni to connect with each other and get more involved at Acalanes
  • Jobs4Dons – Job network focused on networking, interviewing, resume writing & job opportunities for current and recent Dons
