Blood Drive
The Community Outreach Board, in conjunction with the Red Cross, is holding the first blood drive of the year on Thursday, September 29th.  We have reserved two hours of the day for the community to donate. Sign­up today

​Intervention Specialists Available
Ms. Mary Threlkel and Ms. Alison Gans, our trained crisis counselors, are available to meet with students struggling with social, emotional or personal issues in order to get help and learn coping skills. Students can sign up to see them in the Counseling Office or by referral from their counselors. Ms. Threlkel and Ms. Gans will present strategies for students to cope with stress at an upcoming Friday Forum. We are fortunate that the Acalanes Parents Club (APC) fully funds this shared position at our site.

Peer Tutoring
Acalanes Parents Club is proud to provide the Peer Tutoring Program to all students and we couldn't do it without the support of APC families - thank you! Students can check out Peer Tutoring every day during lunch, 7th period, and after school until 4pm in the covered hallway near the quad entrance. Encourage your student to come once and they will be hooked. Best of all, it's completely on a drop-in basis and absolutely free (Snacks are offered too).
