From the Activities Director

Here we go! Let’s make the most of April & May together-we are ACA Strong!

April 25-30 Homecoming Week 2021 Let’s enter the DECADES together! 

  • Class of 2021 – The 1980’s
  • Class of 2022 – The 1990’s
  • Class of 2023 – The 1970’s
  • Class of 2024 – The 2000’s

There will be many ways for students to get involved in Homecoming Week, both virtually and on campus. Look out for the calendar of events next week. But in the meantime, get excited for two long-standing Acalanes traditions & mark your calendars:

  • Sunday, April 25th Hallway Decorating

Students will sign up to work shifts to decorate their class hallway. It is transformational, and our students have fun and do a wonderful job.

  • Thursday, April 29th (evening) Live-streamed Virtual Rally

An event for the whole family! Complete with class skits, live performances by incredible students, and more. 

Encourage your student to participate! Let’s do the decades, Acalanes! 

Join the fun & buy an ACA Parent/Sibling Strong Shirt. This is a grey version of the student/staff ACA Strong shirt. You can purchase now via the Acalanes webstore for $10 and pick up from Acalanes after you receive your confirmation email.
