News & Announcements

From the Activities Director

In cohort tomorrow, students will see a quote that really resonated with me as I begin to plan and dream for 2nd semester. I wanted to share it with the parent community as well:

“Your school’s culture is the sum of its parts, yet one person, just one spark, one believer, armed with a relentless passion, can ignite a cultural revolution. Be that person. Be that spark. Be that believer.” -Dr. Phil Campbell

Let’s do this together ACA. Let’s stay in it together as a community. 

Thursday, Jan 28 ACA Day from 2:30-4:30pm
Please mark your calendars and drive through Acalanes! We will have goodies on hand to pass out, staff to wave to & our community to connect with. We are also collecting two of the most needed items for Monument Crisis Center-peanut butter & cereal. Please consider donating!

Post-Inauguration Dialogue
At lunch on Thursday, students can join Acalanes staff for a discussion and support forum following the inauguration. Zoom link will be sent out via Canvas.
