2018-2019 Budget

The APC Board is working hard on finalizing the budget for this year. The budget can be viewed here. If you have questions, please contact one of the APC co-presidents Dawn Brightbill and Sarah Cusumano. We will be voting to pass the budget at the October 26th Dons Dialogue.

APC General Membership Meeting/Dons Dialogue 

Friday, September 28
Join us for our upcoming APC General Membership Meeting to approve our 2018-19 APC Operating Budget on Friday, September 28.  We will begin with the General Membership Meeting at 8:30 a.m. followed by Dons Dialogue in the Collaboration Center. Parent parking will be available in the small lot by the Main Gym. All APC donors can vote to approve the budget.

Our 2nd Dons Dialogue of the school year will directly follow our brief APC General Membership Meeting. We had a packed house last month so we hope you’ll all join us again. The agenda is always full of great information. Aida Glimme, our Associate Superintendent, will be presenting the new district-wide homework policy and she is eager to get parent feedback. This is your opportunity to share your opinions and ask questions. You’ll also have a chance to hear all about the new Acalanes Wellness Center which is off and running and is quickly becoming an invaluable resource for our students. 

APC Grant Program Applications are Open   

Acalanes Parents Club will continue its APC Grant Program this year with the intent to look for ideas that will enhance the educational and campus experience of AHS students in new and innovative ways. Teacher, students and parents are welcome to submit a grant proposal.

Peer Tutoring

Peer Tutoring is a great campus resource, supported entirely by Acalanes Parents Club, for students to take advantage of to get academic help from trained peer tutors or a quiet space to get homework done. If your student drops by once, they’re likely to take advantage of it going forward. You can’t beat free tutoring (and yummy snacks)!
